CoolSculpting has taken the weight loss and cosmetic surgery world by storm. By offering patients the ability to get that body they’ve always wanted without having to go under the knife, CoolSculpting has both men and women lining up to get this procedure done. However, because CoolSculpting is still fairly new on the market, there are several things that you may not know about the procedure itself. Here are three fun facts that you may not know about CoolSculpting:
- Voted #1 Non-Invasive Fat Reduction Surgery
When it comes to fat reduction surgery, people typically think of liposuction. And although liposuction offers patients amazing results, the invasive nature and recovery of the procedure itself can be a deterrent for many. That’s why CoolSculpting has been voted the #1 non-invasive fat reduction surgery. By giving you similar results in more time than liposuction, CoolSculpting allows patients to get in and out of the doctor in no time. And recovery time? What’s that?
- It Takes Time
If you have scheduled a CoolSculpting treatment just weeks before a beach vacation, hoping that you will be able to show off your newly sculpted body, then you might be disappointed. Due to the technology and procedural guidelines themselves, CoolSculpting takes around four to six months for patients to start seeing actual results. Why is this exactly? CoolSculpting uses a technology that freezes your fat cells. Once the cells have been frozen, it will take time for them to slough off and become dissolved by your body.
- It’s for Stubborn Areas
Often times, people associated weight loss surgery with things like gastric bypass surgery. However, procedures like CoolSculpting and liposuction are designed to not give your entire body a transformed look, but rather, they are designed to rid your body of stubborn areas of fat. For instance, if you live a healthy lifestyle— eat well and exercise often— but you can’t seem to get rid of your love handles or maybe that extra layer of fat around your middle, then CoolSculpting is the perfect procedure for you.
