If you have a few areas of fat that you would like to get rid of, such as love handles or a muffin top, you may be a good candidate for CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting is a fat reduction procedure that uses controlled cooling to freeze and kill fat cells. It is ideally suited for those areas that are resistant to diet and exercise such as the abdomen, flanks, and thighs.

When will I see results from CoolSculpting?

Most patients notice some improvement in body contours about 3 weeks after treatment, but optimal results can take up to 3 months.

How long does CoolSculpting last?

The new contours achieved with CoolSculpting can last for a very long time, because the treated fat cells are flushed from the body, so they are gone for good. However, in order to maintain results, patients are advised to adopt a lifestyle of healthy eating and regular exercise. Consequently, there is the need for weight maintenance after CoolSculpting, to ensure that the results are long lasting (click here to learn more).

What happens if I gain weight after Coolsculpting?

There are a fixed number of fat cells in the body, and CoolSculpting does not reduce all the fat cells in the treatment area. Most patients experience a 20-25% fat reduction in the treated area. Therefore if you gain weight after CoolSculpting, the remaining fat cells in the treated area will get bigger.

Who is a good candidate for CoolSculpting?

Men and women that are near their goal weight, but have a few areas of stubborn fat, are good candidates for CoolSculpting.
