ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – St. Louis University Hospital is the latest local medical center to begin offering a body fat elimination process called "Cool Sculpting," which involves freezing skin fat to kill the fat cells underneath.

Results can take three or four weeks to three or four months to be seen.

Because it is considered elective plastic surgery, it is not covered by insurance.
