San Antonio Cosmetic SurgeryYour Questions: Answered! Top 7 Questions About CoolSculpting®

Many, is not most, people can relate to stubborn fat remaining in place on their bodies despite their best efforts at diet and exercise. One solution thousands have turned to for this problem is CoolSculpting®. This non-surgical procedure will remove unwanted fat without scars or incisions and there will be no need for extended recovery time.

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting involves a process called cryolipolysis. During this process, fat cell deposits are frozen to instigate their removal from the body. The cells are later eliminated by the body on its own. The targeted treatment is approved by the FDA and does not harm the skin around the area being treated.

The process provides a permanent loss of fat because fat cells do not return once they are eliminated. The CoolSculpting process takes a little more than half an hour to complete and patients can return to regular activities the same day.

Is CoolSculpting Right For Me?

CoolSculpting is probably not best for someone who is interested in an instant transformation that will cause their body to resemble the body of their favorite actress, singer, or athlete. The process is ideal for individuals who struggle with stubborn areas that a healthy diet and exercise regimen has proven unable to solve. However, if you are looking for more drastic results, we offer options such as liposuction & body contouring after massive weight loss.

During your consultation with San Antonio Cosmetic Surgery, you will be counseled regarding realistic expectations regarding the CoolSculpting procedure. We will help you determine if CoolSculpting is best for you or if another method of unwanted fat removal is a better option.

How Effective Is CoolSculpting?

The procedure is effective but should not be looked at as a magical cure for weight loss or obesity. This body contouring technique should be looked at as a tool for targeting fat cells in troubled areas like flanks, thighs, double-chins, abdomen, buttocks, and other areas likely to hold on to stubborn fat cells.

How Long Before Results Are Seen?

The CoolSculpting process works best for men and women who are less than 30 pounds above their ideal weight. Results are usually first seen about three weeks after the procedure is completed. The visible results are much more dramatic around the two-month mark. Your body will continue to rid itself of fat cells for up to six months following the CoolSculpting procedure.

What Are The Long-Term Effects?

Once fat cells are frozen by the CoolSculpting process, they are eliminated by the body. The fat cells are gone for good and there are no known problems that could arise from this process.

Is CoolSculpting Safe?

It may seem that the simplicity of this process is too good to be true. However, it is just as simple as it sounds. No incisions are needed and no scars will be left behind. Clinical studies have monitored the progress of 5,500 CoolSculpting procedures and it is estimated that about six million procedures have been performed across the globe. Researchers, doctors, and countless satisfied customers agree that the CoolSculpting procedure is both safe and effective.
