How CoolSculpting® Removes Unwanted Fat

How CoolSculpting® Removes Unwanted Fat

If you’re like most people with unwanted pockets of stubborn fat, you’ve likely wished for a way to make them magically disappear. While the team at Brooks Plastic Surgery in Hollywood, Florida, can’t offer you a magic solution, we can come close with nonsurgical CoolSculpting®

Led by Dr. Christopher Brooks, our team can help you sculpt the body you want with this effective alternative to more invasive fat-reduction methods, like liposuction. Unlike these options, which may require anesthesia, FDA-cleared CoolSculpting is fast and pain-free.

Here’s a look at how this amazing treatment works and what you can expect when you shape your body with CoolSculpting. 

How does CoolSculpting work?

The CoolSculpting wand allows us to freeze targeted fat cells. The wand’s freezing temperatures safely and effectively break down fat cells. Over the next few weeks, your body processes the now-dead fat cells and removes them with other cellular waste. 

Studies indicate that most patients experience a 20% reduction in fat after their CoolSculpting treatment, and it’s safe to use in many areas since there’s no damage to your skin or the surrounding tissues. This means you can eliminate hard-to-lose fat exactly where you want, including:

The best part? Since your body can’t grow new fat cells, your results will last, provided you maintain your weight. If you do gain weight, your body will store the fat in other areas.

Each session takes less than an hour, and while you may feel a pulling sensation as the treatment gets underway, CoolSculpting isn’t painful. Plus there’s no downtime or recovery period needed, so you can get your treatment and get on with your day. 

Am I a candidate for CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss solution. This means you should have a body mass index (BMI) below 30 and feel happy with your overall weight while looking to target one or more “trouble zones,” like pockets of excess fat on your inner thighs.

CoolSculpting can be customized to treat small or large areas of body fat, but if weight loss is your goal, CoolSculpting isn’t the right fit to help you achieve your goals. But the best way to learn if you’re a candidate for CoolSculpting is by meeting with an expert at Brooks Plastic Surgery.

At your consultation, we’ll review your goals and current health status. If CoolSculpting isn’t right for you, we can help you find a solution that fits better with your needs.

If you’ve tried diet and exercise, but still can’t get those stubborn fat pockets to budge, it’s time to schedule a CoolSculpting consultation at Brooks Plastic Surgery. Contact our team in Hollywood, Florida, to set up an appointment.
