If you've tried losing weight and haven't had much success despite dedicating time and money to the problem, you're probably skeptical about trusting a weight loss clinic like Cryo & Contour. You're absolutely right to think that way - many modern diets and weight loss programs are nothing more than quick fixes for weight loss problems that can't be solved overnight.
Fortunately, our weight loss program is different from the rest and designed with you in mind. Our medical weight loss program is a safe and effective way to improve your overall health and maintain a healthy weight in the long term without the need for surgery.
Developed by our medical director, Dr. Lorina Poe, MD., our medical weight loss plans start with a comprehensive analysis tailored to you, your body, and your goals. We start with a detailed wellness exam, blood work, body composition analysis, and resting metabolic rate testing to truly understand you and your body. We then use this detailed information to develop a weight loss plan that is personalized to help you lose weight and meet your fitness goals. For the best results, we like to work with your primary care physician and other medical specialists as necessary to ensure a healthy, progressive continuity of care.
The duration of your weight loss program is determined by weight loss goals specific to you and includes
If you're looking for a partner to help you achieve healthy weight loss in Fairview, TN, Cryo & Contour is the weight loss clinic for you. Unlike other medical weight loss programs, ours was founded upon the power of science with the caring and personalized support of our medical weight loss team.
This initial phase of your weight loss journey starts with blood pressure and weight checks, EKG monitoring for every 50 lbs. lost, lab tests conducted monthly, ongoing nutrition education, weekly nurse visits, and monthly physician visits.
This intermediate phase starts when you have achieved your target weight. At this point, we introduce more foods from the grocery store that you can eat. By the end of this phase, all meal replacements are eliminated from your diet and replaced with other foods.
This phase is crucial and meant to help you keep all that weight off that you have worked so hard to lose. We incorporate S.T.A.R. steps to accomplish this goal, which is a 24-week program designed to help you maintain your new healthy weight.
One of the most common questions we get at our medical weight loss office is who our program benefits most. That's not the easiest question to answer since every person's body and weight loss goals will be different from the next person's. However, we have found that professional, supervised medical weight loss can be hugely beneficial for a range of different people, including:
Shedding some pounds can lead to an overall improvement in health, a lower likelihood of developing chronic diseases, and an increase in energy levels for individuals struggling with weight issues.
Losing extra pounds can have a positive impact on one's well-being and alleviate the effects of conditions such as type II diabetes, high blood pressure, and sleep apnea.
Losing weight can reduce the pressure on joints, which can help reduce pain and improve mobility for people with a limited range of motion or joint pain due to being overweight.
Now that you know a little bit more about our weight loss program and its underlying principles, let's take a closer look at some of the key tools that our physicians use to expedite healthy, long-lasting weight loss.
If you're looking for a way to potentially lose weight, improve muscle recovery, overcome mood and sleep disorders, promote injury healing, and solve joint pain, cryotherapy could be a great addition to your weight loss plan. During each cryotherapy session, you'll step into a chamber and experience extreme cold for just three minutes. Some people have reported burning up to 800 calories during a session. Keep in mind that cryotherapy doesn't cure any specific illnesses, but it might be helpful for those who suffer from conditions like fibromyalgia, lupus, arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis.
Excellent Supplement to Your Weight Loss Plan with Cryo & Contour
Relief from Pain, Swelling, Inflammation, and Muscle Spasticity
Helps Boost Adrenaline, cortisol, and Dopamine to Fight Pain, Hunger, and Fatigue
Jumpstarts Your Metabolism and Immune System Response to Illness
Are you curious about what happens during a typical cryotherapy session from Cryo & Contour? It starts with the first of three phases, which take place during a three-minute exposure to temperatures below zero.
When the body is exposed to cold temperatures, it undergoes a series of physiological changes to help maintain its core temperature. One of these changes is the constriction of blood vessels on the skin's surface and muscles, which forces blood away from the peripheral tissues towards the core. Once in the core, the blood can be filtered through the body's natural filtration system, which works to remove toxins and inflammatory components from the blood.
This process not only helps to keep the body warm but also helps to keep it healthy by eliminating harmful substances that can cause damage to cells and tissues. Additionally, the constriction of blood vessels can help to reduce swelling and inflammation in the peripheral tissues, which can be especially beneficial for those with conditions such as arthritis or joint pain.
After leaving the chamber, blood circulates to the body's outer tissues, which are now supplied with oxygen and nutrients. This circulation naturally warms the muscles and skin, allowing for increased flexibility and range of motion.
Within a period of 2 days, individuals experience a significant improvement in their physical condition. They have reported enhanced quality of sleep, heightened levels of energy, and faster recovery periods after injuries or exercising.
Looking for a cutting-edge way to enhance your physique? It might be time for you to consider Emsculpt, a body sculpting treatment that uses electromagnetic pulses to build muscle and burn fat. By stimulating muscle contractions, this innovative procedure can help your body generate new muscle fibers and proteins while reducing unwanted fat cells.
The short answer to this question is yes, it absolutely is safe. In fact, this procedure is a non-invasive, FDA-approved body sculpting treatment that uses the power of electromagnetism to tighten muscles and burn fat in areas where pockets of body fat typically collect, like the belly and the thighs.Request Appointment
For those who are struggling with stubborn pockets of fat that won't budge even with diet and exercise, Emsculpt offers a permanent solution. This treatment is most effective for individuals who are close to their target weight and looking for a way to destroy targeted fat cells. The muscle mass created by Emsculpt can last for at least six months or more, provided that patients continue to engage in strength and conditioning exercises to build muscle.Request Appointment
Emsculpt treatments can provide an incredible workout for muscles that would be difficult to achieve through traditional gym exercises. Within just 30 minutes, the treatment can generate an impressive 20,000 muscular contractions. For instance, if the treatment targets the abdominal muscles, it can be compared to performing 20,000 crunches in half an hour.
Emsculpt not only strengthens muscle fibers but also releases epinephrine, a naturally occurring chemical in the body that prompts nearby fat cells to break down. This is a significant development because fat cells are notoriously difficult to eliminate. Contact Cryo & Contour today to learn more about Emsculpt and whether this revolutionary weight loss tool is appropriate for you and your body.Request Appointment
The Verju laser system is a remarkable innovation in the field of non-invasive treatments. In fact, it's the only FDA-approved green laser that is both safe and effective in fat loss and the reduction of cellulite. One of the key advantages of this laser is that its low-level frequency ensures that there is no possibility of injury. Moreover, unlike liposuction or other hands-on treatments, there are no devices that push up against your skin during the procedure. Patients simply lay underneath the Verju lights and let the machine do the rest.
Individuals looking to lose weight with a medical weight loss program often benefit most from treatments like Verju. Why? Because Verju is very effective at eliminating stubborn fat from problematic areas such as your thighs, arms, and waist.
At the treatment sites, subcutaneous fat cells tend to collapse, leading to a thinner body shape for stubborn areas like hips, thighs, and lower abdomen. Based on the research, the average client can lose up to 4 inches over the hips and waist within just two weeks, and the results can be maintained for more than five months. Verju is a unique contouring system that does not damage the fat cells, thereby creating a more natural biological response for losing inches.
Unlike other branded treatments, Verju's green diode system increases the collagen concentration in the dermal layer and remodels collagen within the fibrotic septae. This puts Verju ahead of others when it comes to circumferential and cellulite reduction. Moreover, other modalities have been shown to permanently damage fat cells, leading to asymmetric weight regain in the shoulders, knees, and other unwanted areas.
This treatment is becoming increasingly popular for healthy medical weight loss because it allows you to relax and decompress while it works. Each treatment, which takes about 15 minutes to complete, provides you with a slight warming sensation that is soothing and gentle. This treatment not only feels great, but it's also incredibly convenient and doesn't require any recovery time.
FlexSure technology is a safe and effective treatment for all skin types, with no restrictions based on your body mass index (BMI). It offers multiple applicator sizes, which ensures that the treatment is tailored to your body shape and size for optimal results. Unlike other treatments, FlexSure does not cut or damage the skin, which eliminates concerns about scarring or infection. Additionally, it is a great option for those with darker skin tones, as it does not pose a risk of discoloration or burns.
If you are self-conscious about areas of skin laxity or have problem fat zones that you would like to tone and slim, FlexSure may be the right choice for you. At Cryo & Contour, our knowledgeable and caring medical staff is here to help you achieve your body-reshaping goals, so don't hesitate to reach out to us for more info on FlexSure and our medical weight loss plans.
FlexSure is a highly effective radio-frequency body treatment that's designed to deliver deep and even tissue heating. The peel-and-stick applicator is strategically curved and contoured to comfortably adapt to your body shape, making it easier to target those hard-to-treat areas. Some of the most common areas that our patients treat include:
Our medical weight loss program benefits greatly from FlexSure's use of monopolar technology, which can reach deep into the skin layers and underlying subcutaneous fat. When the temperature reaches over 42 degrees, the fat cells undergo apoptosis or cell death. The lymphatic system will then naturally clear away the debris left by the destroyed fat cells.
Since patients receive the dual benefit of fat reduction as well as skin tightening, FlexSure is often seen as a fantastic total body contouring, slimming, and toning system.

A development with more than 500 homes in Fairview that’s been discussed and redrawn for years has advanced to a final vote by city leaders.
Neighbors of the Bellehaven site, including Jeffrey Pape, Tamara Hyler and others, are against the proposed development planned for 250 acres along Highway 96.
Pape and Hyler filed a complaint with the city, and the appeal was heard in late April by the Franklin Board of Commissioners, who ultimately on first vote approved Bellehaven.
The approval comes nearly two years after the commission first rejected the plan.
Walton Group is the developer for the project, which is located near Interstate 40. The builder is Texas-based D.R. Horton.
The master plan calls for over 500 residential units, with lots sizes between 55- and 85-feet wide, as well as 20-foot-wide townhome lots. A small pool and cabana are also planned.
Pape and Hyler contend that the project needs to be rezoned and the current plans shouldn’t have made it this far into the process.
“Very simply put, if you change the plan for this particular PUD zoning it changes the official zoning map of the City and is therefore a zoning change,” their appeal states.
They also argue that the master plan presented in March didn’t include all the minimum city requirements.
“Therefore, both the lack of information provided by staff as well as the statements made by staff and legal counsel unduly influenced and restricted the Planning Commission’s discretionary authority to approve exceptions and variations from the zoning ordinance as part of their approval process,” the appeal states.
Their appeal was ultimately deferred on April 20. That same date at its regular monthly meeting, the commission, with two members absent, approved the development on first reading. A public hearing and second reading and possible final vote are expected on May 18.
Fairview City Attorney Patrick Carter strongly recommended that the board approve the plan on first reading, stating it met the city’s zoning codes.
“If the master plan meets the zone of the property, legally, it requires you to approve it,” Cater said. “All I can tell you is what the law is. This has everything to do with the property’s zoning that was put in place in 2008.”
In a late 2021 city Planning Commission meeting, commissioners pushed back against the project’s look and density. At the time 600 homes were planned.
“I'm having a hard time falling in love with it, or kind of seeing the vision,” Planning Commission Chairman Brandon Butler said. “I’m still having a hard time with the lot size or the overall design.”

Cheatham County Central hosted Fairview on Friday night for a region battle. The Yellow Jackets were able to score in the final few minutes to pull away for a 28-21 win.
The Cubs started the scoring with a touchdown pass from senior Patrick Kelly to senior Robert Humphrey. Kelly kicked the extra point to give Cheatham County a 7-0 lead.
Fairview was able to respond with a short rushing touchdown from Treyvon Murray. Murray finished with two touchdowns, but Fairview missed the extra point, leading to a 7-6 Cubs’ lead.
Murray scored his second touchdown late in the first half and Fairview executed the two-point conversion to take a 14-7 lead before halftime.
Cheatham County Central came out in the second half and drove down the field for a touchdown to tie the game. Kelly found the end zone, this time on the ground, but the Cubs missed the extra point, so Fairview still led 14-13.
Wendall Billingsly then got in on the scoring for Fairview with a rushing touchdown, allowing the Yellow Jackets to extend the lead to 21-13.
The senior duo of Kelly and Humphrey pushed Cheatham County Central back down the field to give the Cubs a chance to tie the game. Kelly ran into the end zone for his second rushing touchdown and added a successful two-point conversion to tie the game at 21.
Billingsly ran into the end zone for his second rushing touchdown late in the fourth quarter to give Fairview the 28-21 lead.
Cheatham County Central did get the ball back with little time left but could not score.
Fairview moves to 3-2 on the season with three straight wins in the past three weeks. The Yellow Jackets are scheduled to host Creek Wood on Friday.
Cheatham County Central is now 1-4 on the season and is scheduled to be on the road next week at Jo Byrns.
“My team is awesome, these guys play hard every snap,” Cheatham County Central coach Gary Halstead said. “We lack depth, which is the reason we have lost several games in the final minute. I would not want to coach anywhere else. Other schools may have better football players, but nobody has better effort. Our record is not where we want to be, but our character is way above the norm.”

Fairview Mayor Brian Cooper submitted his letter of resignation last week, announcing his plan to leave office immediately.
Asked about his reason for departing, here’s what he told The Outlook:
“My resignation as mayor [is] the next step in the process of retirement. I have sold my business and my house recently in my attempt to retire near my daughter in Knoxville, Tenn.
I had hoped to check a couple more items on my to-do list for the City of Fairview, but unfortunately, they are going to fall outside my window of time I have left.”
The following is Cooper’s resignation letter:
Dear City Council and Fairview residents:
My time in the Fairview community has been some of the most rewarding times in my life. I may have started my journey in city government as a reluctant councilor just trying to fill the shoes of [my] father, but I quickly learned to love the people who were part of that journey, and the job of being a public servant.
I would like to give a special thanks to my early mentors who helped guide me. They were Joe Gall, Samantha Nelson, Barb Jones, Lisa Barton-Mullins and Steve Owen.
When I look back over the last 11 years, it is full of accomplishments I could not have done alone, including: Friends of Fairview with Darren Riordan and Keith Kudrna; Playeast with Larry Morgan, Mayor Doug Doust and Mayor Ted Tosterud; and the Fairview Food Plaza (aka, “the Fork”) with Allan Berry and my wife, Ginell Cooper, to name only a few.
We very much lived up to the mantra by Margret Mead: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
While we may not have changed the world, I believe I am leaving Fairview better than I found it. I spent my time on council finding diverse voices to represent the community.
Fairview is in a unique position in the Metro region of having a small-town budget with big-city problems.
While Fairview has done a fantastic job with such a small staff, holding the issue of the big city at bay while keeping Fairview the beautiful, family-friendly gem of East County I came to love, challenges still loom in the future that will take a council with bold vision and conviction to navigate.
I would like to, once again, urge people to volunteer for their community. It is rewarding and meaningful.
With a heavy heart, I tender my resignation effective immediately. Thank you to the City of Fairview and my fellow council members for this opportunity to serve my community.
May the force be with you.

FAIRVIEW, Tenn. (WZTV) — It's a nightmare for some living in a Middle Tennessee apartment complex. Residents said they've been dealing with a rat infestation since early spring.
Charity Taylor was in tears when FOX 17 News sat down to speak with her. She lives at Roundtree Manor Apartments in Fairview with her daughter and son, and she said she's at her breaking point.
Taylor and her daughter say they clean regularly, and the next day rats come back.
A few months ago, the family saw a rat and noticed holes under her kitchen sink. Taylor put a bucket with grease in it to catch the rodents, thinking she wouldn't find anything.
“I caught 31 rats in a bucket under my kitchen sink. Within a matter of two days,” Taylor said.
“Nobody's doing anything about it. It's got to the point where you can’t sleep peacefully without hearing noises and scratches in the wall. And it's just it's a nightmare at this point.”
Taylor said she has tried to get help from the apartment complex, showing them the pictures and the only response, she got is "I’m sorry" and some rat traps in hand.
“You can't even enjoy it here because of the rats; the smells,” she said.
An advocate working with renters at the complex said another family with small children is also facing this issue.
That family is not ready to speak with FOX 17 News. Reporter Payton Muse went to the management office. The manager said she was "advised to say no comment."
Muse asked when these problems are going to be addressed.
The complex said they’re in the process of "doing everything" and they’re hoping things will be resolved by the end of next week.
Another problem Taylor’s family said they’re dealing with is no hot water. Taylor said maintenance came Thursday and it is still broken.
