About noninvasive CoolSculpting
Nonsurgical body contouring with FDA-approved CoolSculpting works by freezing stubborn deposits of fat in the targeted treatment area.
The cold temperatures safely and effectively break down fat cells, causing them to die, while leaving the surrounding tissues unharmed.
After your treatment, it takes several weeks for your body to naturally remove the dead fat cells. It processes and carries them away with other cellular waste through your lymphatic system. The number of treatment sessions you need to achieve your goals depends on different factors.
Getting a flatter tummy with CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is a highly effective way to get a flatter tummy. On average, patients see a 20% reduction in fat after each session!
And if you have other trouble zones, you can use CoolSculpting to zap fat there, too, including the:
- Back and buttocks
- Chest and bra fat
- Love handles or sides
- Legs and knees
- Armpits and inner arms
- Chin and neck
You might feel a light pulling or tugging sensation, but the treatment doesn’t cause any pain. Each session only takes around 30 minutes, and you don’t have to worry about recovery time or downtime after your session.
In fact, at Brooks Plastic Surgery, many of our patients schedule their CoolSculpting session on their lunch breaks and return to their normal daily activities right away!
It takes a few months for your body to remove the fat cells, so for a beach-ready belly this summer, be sure to start treatments in winter or spring.
Keep in mind that even though the treated cells won’t return, if you gain weight, you may develop fat pockets in other areas.
Eligibility for CoolSculpting treatments
Most adults in good health and at or near their ideal weight are eligible for treatments with noninvasive CoolSculpting. However, the best way to learn if this nonsurgical treatment is right for you is by meeting with an aesthetic provider.
At Brooks Plastic Surgery, we offer obligation-free consultations to help you determine which treatments are right for you. In general, CoolSculpting may be a good option if you:
- Don’t need to lose weight (i.e., have a healthy BMI)
- Are dedicated to a healthy lifestyle
- Have realistic goals for your treatment
