Why is CoolSculpting Done?

CoolSculpting is done to eliminate the stubborn pockets of subcutaneous fat cells that don’t respond to traditional weight loss methods, such as exercise and dieting. Everyone has certain parts of the body with excess fat cells. Even if you maintain an extremely healthy lifestyle, you may still have excess fat cells. The most common areas for stubborn fat are the abdomen, lower back, thighs, and arms. CoolSculpting eliminates stubborn fat cells, making your body look chiseled and contoured.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

CoolSculpting works on the scientific principles of cryolipolysis, discovered by two doctors from Harvard Medical School in 2005. It was discovered that fat cells can be frozen faster than other surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting channels cold temperature to freeze and kill the unwanted fat cells without damaging surrounding tissues. The fat cells are crystallized and eventually metabolized by your body, making the targeted area look slimmer. This technique doesn’t involve scarring or downtime.

Common Treatment Areas:

  • Double chin
  • Upper arms
  • Male chest
  • Bra fat
  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Lower back
  • Buttocks
  • Inner thighs

CoolSculpting Is NOT Meant for Weight Loss

CoolSculpting is a body contouring procedure that removes excess subcutaneous fat cells — it’s NOT a weight loss procedure. CoolSculpting can remove extremely small pockets of excess fat cells from your body, thus changing the fat distribution within your body. The amount of fat cells it can remove is extremely minimal. This procedure is only suitable for patients who are already close to their ideal body weight and need a little boost to achieve a chiseled figure.

If you are clinically overweight or obese, you must focus on natural methods to control your weight. We offer comprehensive weight loss programs that involve weight loss medications, dietary changes, and lifestyle changes to help you lose weight. If you’re obese and have obesity-related medical conditions, you may also benefit from bariatric surgeries that allow you to lose and keep off weight. CoolSculpting is only helpful once you get close to your goals.

Benefits of CoolSculpting:

  • Non-invasive fat reduction
  • Removes targeted pockets of excess fat
  • Improves the results of your body contouring efforts
  • Stimulates the natural metabolism of excess fat
  • Completely safe procedure
  • Concludes within 30 minutes
  • No harsh side effects or complications
  • No post-treatment downtime

Your CoolSculpting Session

Ahuja Bariatric & Beyond offers a simple CoolSculpting treatment that concludes within 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the number of treatment areas. During the procedure, the cosmetic provider places a gel pad on your skin and places the CoolSculpting applicators. The device will deliver controlled cooling and vacuum pressure to the targeted area, which might lead to tingling and tugging sensations. Next, the cosmetic provider will massage the treatment area to loosen the fat cells.

Recovery After CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting doesn’t involve extensive recovery or downtime. You may experience mild redness, soreness, sensitivity, and swelling around the treatment areas for a few days, but there are no harsh side effects. You can resume your daily activities immediately after your treatment, but you should wear loose-fitting clothes to speed up the recovery. You should also start exercising after a few days to improve your recovery and results.

The Onset & Longevity of Results

You will start noticing the results of CoolSculpting after 2 to 3 weeks, with continued improvements for up to 12 weeks. You can speed up the onset of results with regular exercise and a healthy diet. Depending on your goals, you may need additional sessions for optimal results. Once gone, the fat cells can’t return, but you must maintain a healthy lifestyle to prevent the remaining fat cells from expanding.
