Can I Gain Weight After Coolsculpting?

In the battle against stubborn fat, CoolSculpting is one of the most popular treatments, because it provides measurable fat reduction results.  The procedure is clinically proven to reduce fat in a treated area by 20%-25%, so people are often curious to find out if they can gain weight after undergoing CoolSculpting.

CoolSculpting fat reduction

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction treatment that uses cooling technology to freeze and kill stubborn fat.  CoolSculpting contours and sculpts the body by selectively destroying fat cells, as they are more susceptible to cold temperature than surrounding cells and tissue (learn more).

The fat cells treated during CoolSculpting are processed, and then naturally flushed from the body over the course of 2-3 months.  Results can be seen within 1-3 months of treatment.

Can I Gain Weight After Coolsculpting?

The results of CoolSculpting are lasting, but you can certainly gain weight after treatment if you don’t exercise regularly, and eat a healthy diet.  CoolSculpting is specifically designed to get rid of fatty deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise.

The fat cells treated with CoolSculpting are expelled by the body, so they are gone for good. Nevertheless, it is still possible to gain weight after CoolSculpting, because if you don’t adopt healthy lifestyle habits, the fat cells in areas that were not treated will grow and expand.

What happens if I gain weight after CoolSculpting?

If you gain weight after CoolSculpting the weight gain will be more pronounced in areas that were not treated during the procedure.
