What are the objectives of CoolSculpting?
Many people are struggling with stubborn fat pockets on their body. It becomes difficult to lose these fat deposits from certain areas of the body only with the use of diet and exercise. Among the procedures to lose such fat, CoolSculpting is fast gaining popularity.
What results can you achieve with CoolSculpting?
It is a non-surgical procedure for elimination of fat pockets from certain areas of your body using controlled cooling. It is a procedure cleared by the FDA for use in different areas of your body like the buttocks, abdomen, thighs, sides, back and chin. It is popular in many countries now, however, there are restrictions on where the treatment can be used depending on the country you are in.
CoolSculpting gets rid of the fat cells in your body and does not simply shrink them like some weight loss programs. Everybody cannot be a good candidate for the procedure. You should be at least 30 pounds near your ideal body weight and should be looking for fat reduction in only certain areas of your body. You must visit a specialist if you want to determine if you are a good candidate for it. CoolSculpting is customized for a patient according to his or her particular requirements. Your doctor will also decide how many treatments do you require in order to achieve the desired results.
How will CoolSculpting be performed?
You have to be in lying position during the procedure while the surgeon puts the cooling device on the area to be treated; it does not affect the surrounding tissue though. The fat cells will shrink and collapse and your body will naturally eliminate them. Since the fat cells are frozen and are consumed by surrounding cells, you will see your results within one to three months.
Even though it is a safe procedure, some patients may suffer from certain side effects. These could include some tightness, pulling sensation and bruising. If the procedure was performed on the throat or chin, you might feel a fullness in the throat. However, these are temporary effects which resolve on their own. If they persist, you must get in touch with your doctor at once.
