CoolSculpting candidates

Even the healthiest of us are dealing with fatty deposits in certain body areas. This fat is difficult to get rid of even with regular diet and exercise. CoolSculpting helps eliminate these stubborn areas but not everybody is a good candidate for the procedure. Even though Dr. Ortegon will help determine if you are a good candidate for CoolSculpting, the best candidate is around 30 pounds near their ideal weight.

Understanding the CoolSculpting procedure

Once the area for your CoolSculpting treatment is decided, you will be required to lie down while Dr. Ortegon places the cooling device on the targeted area. Controlled cooling from this device will freeze the fat cells in this area which will either shrink or collapse. One of the benefits of the procedure is that any surrounding tissue is left unharmed while the collapsed fat cells get eliminated from your body through its natural process.

CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical fat-freezing procedure that has been cleared by the FDA for effective use on different body areas like your abdomen, back, sides, buttocks, arms, thighs and the submental or chin fat.

What results can you expect?

There are several other procedures for fat reduction like Liposuction that physically remove the destroyed fat. However, CoolSculpting is a procedure that allows for the natural elimination of fat through the lymphatic drainage system. This natural process is slow and hence, you will not see your results immediately. Most of our patients begin to see their final results in 1 to 3 months post their procedure.

You can reduce around 25 percent of the fat cells from the targeted area with one session of CoolSculpting. Whether you require more than one session will be decided by Dr. Ortegon based on your individual requirements and cosmetic goals. It is important to understand that CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss procedure but helps achieve your desired results of fat reduction. While weight loss only reduces the size of your fat cells, the revolutionary CoolSculpting procedure helps permanently destroy the fat cells. You can get naturally stunning body contouring results and any future weight gain will also be equally distributed.
