Getting rid of stubborn fat can be challenging. Even if you have a good diet and exercise regularly, you might find that you are unable to slim down certain areas of your body. Many people may find excess body fat frustrating, especially when unable to find clothing that fits well. However, not everyone is interested in an invasive liposuction procedure that will put you out of commission while you heal. If this sounds like you, read on to answer the question "Is CoolSculpting right for me?"
CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved procedure that reduces fat in the body without surgery. The procedure uses a patented technique called Cryolipolysis, which targets fat cells without affecting the skin or surrounding tissue. The CoolSculpting technique delivers controlled cooling to kill fat cells by freezing them. Your body will then process and eliminate these dead cells, leaving you with a sleeker, more sculpted physique, all without a single incision. Because treated fat cells are permanently destroyed, CoolSculpting provides long-term results.
CoolSculpting is effective for men and women who are generally within 30 pounds of their ideal weight. The ideal candidate only has a little extra fat in specific areas such as the abs, back, thighs and chin. The procedure can also get rid of love handles and muffin tops. Although CoolSculpting is suitable for fat removal, it is not a substitute for diet and exercise for weight loss.
CoolSculpting works well for those who take good care of their physical health but who just can't seem to get rid of those stubborn love handles or other pesky fat deposits.
CoolSculpting is not recommended for women who are pregnant, breastfeeding or attempting to become pregnant. If you have had body contouring surgery within the last 12 months, you will need written consent from your physician before receiving CoolSculpting treatment.
If you have a significant amount of excess fat, you might benefit from a liposuction procedure instead. If this is the case, our aesthetic medical providers would be more than happy to discuss this option during your consultation. We will refer you to Dr. Leslie Stevens for a liposuction consultation if it appears that liposuction is a better option for you.
Kybella is an alternative to CoolSculpting and is beneficial in removing the excess fat that causes a double chin. Ask one of our aesthetic injection specialists for more information on Kybella or CoolMini treatments.
