About Us

Gayoso Plastic Surgery, established in 1998, has been a full-service local plastic surgery boutique focused on providing quality service to our patients. Gayoso Center for Coolsculpting™ was created out of a demand for non-invasive body contouring with the Coolsculpting™ technology. Our Coolsculpting staff have advanced training, including training at the Coolsculpting University in Pleasanton, California, followed by completion of the elite Master’s Class in Reston, Virginia. We have found that having staff dedicated to performing only Coolsculpting allows us to focus on obtaining the best results for our patients.
