If you’re eating a proper diet and living an active lifestyle, but still deal with fat on specific areas of the body that you’d like to reduce, don’t pick up the phone and call a plastic surgeon! Instead, consider noninvasive alternative treatments that can help you contour specific areas of the body where problems occur. At Hollywood Dermatology and Cosmetic Specialists, our providers are pleased to provide a solution for patients who are interested in body contouring: Coolsculpting.
What is Coolsculpting?
Coolsculpting is a treatment that uses cryolipolysis to remove unwanted fat on targeted areas of the body. It does this by essentially freezing the fat cells and allowing them to be discharged from the body through the natural lymphatic system. In doing this, patients can eliminate fat right where it’s required to improve their contours without undergoing invasive surgeries such as liposuction.
How much weight will I lose from Coolsculpting?
It is vital that patients understand what CoolSculpting is and what it can achieve. It is not considered a weight loss solution. In fact, most of the patients who undergo Coolsculpting are already within their ideal weight range and want to target areas that are not responsive on their own to proper diet and exercise. Some patients might notice a slight dip in their weight after several weeks and months of Coolsculpting, but this is only due to the loss of fat cells that occur with time. CoolSculpting is seen as a body contouring treatment, not a weight loss treatment.
