Who is a good candidate for CoolSculpting?
Many people today are dealing with stubborn fatty deposits in different parts of their body even when otherwise they are healthy and at their ideal body weight. These deposits do not budge even when you regularly diet and exercise. However, not everybody makes a good candidate for the CoolSculpting procedure. Dr. Ortegon will help determine if this is the procedure which will help you get your desired body contours. The right candidate must be about 30 pounds less or more than the weight they desire to achieve.
What is the CoolSculpting procedure like?
During your CoolSculpting procedure, you will be required to lie down while Dr. Ortegon places the cooling device on the treatment area. The controlled cooling from this device targets the fat cells while it leaves the surrounding tissue unharmed. These targeted fat cells shrink or collapse and get consumed by the surrounding cells and do not migrate to other areas. The destroyed cells get eliminated by the natural processes of the body and you get rid of fat cells permanently.
This nonsurgical fat freezing procedure is FDA-approved and is effective for use on your abdomen, back, sides, buttocks, thighs, under the chin area, and arms.
What results will you see?
While the fat cells are removed through a vacuum during other procedures like Liposuction, CoolSculpting allows for the natural elimination of the fat cells using the body’s lymphatic drainage. Since this natural process is slow, most people see their results from the procedure only in about 1 to 3 months post their treatment.
You can lose about 25 percent of fat from the targeted area with just one session of CoolSculpting. Dr. Ortegon will determine the number of CoolSculpting sessions you will require depending on your specific needs and aesthetic goals. While you can reduce the size of your fat cells with dieting and exercise, the CoolSculpting procedure helps to completely destroy fat cells from the targeted area. You can enjoy permanent and naturally beautiful results; and even if you gain weight in the future, it will be evenly distributed.
