How Does CoolSculpting® Treatment Work On Stubborn Fat?

Featured Image

If you’re like most people, you probably have a few areas of stubborn fat that just won’t seem to budge. This is particularly true for patients who have reached middle age and women who have had children. In some cases, no amount of dieting or exercise can reduce stubborn fat cells in the same way or at the same rate that is possible on the rest of the body, leaving patients feeling frustrated and defeated. To help men and women finally achieve their goals and feel confident about their figure, Susan J. Seman, DO, FACS, and the award-winning team at Dr. Susan Seman in West Bloomfield Township, MI are proud to offer a wide range of nonsurgical body contouring treatments, including CoolSculpting. Keep reading to learn more about how CoolSculpting works, where it can be used, and what results may be possible for you.

Why can’t I get rid of my belly fat?

For many people, stubborn fat is a constant source of frustration. Oftentimes, patients hold on to stubborn fat in their abdomen, hips, flanks, thighs, and buttocks, which can be notoriously difficult features to slim down with diet and exercise alone. In some cases, stubborn fat is simply due to age or genetics, while other patients may have hormone imbalances or another underlying cause of stubborn fat.

What does CoolSculpting do?

CoolSculpting is a widely popular nonsurgical fat reduction treatment that helps patients achieve a slimmer, smoother, sexier physique more conveniently than ever before. During a CoolSculpting treatment, which is noninvasive and considered painless, patients will relax in one of our private treatment rooms. The skin will be cleansed and prepared, and the CoolSculpting applicators will be placed on the desired treatment area(s). The CoolSculpting system will then administer cooling technology to effectively “freeze” and destroy the targeted fat cells. Over the next several weeks, the dead fat cells will be expelled from the body through natural processes, and patients will begin to see their newly slimmed-down figure taking shape.

Where can CoolSculpting be used?

Common treatment areas for CoolSculpting fat reduction include:

  • Abdomen/belly
  • Hips
  • Flanks
  • Love handles
  • Muffin top
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Knees
  • Under the chin (double chin)

How many CoolSculpting sessions do you need?

On average, patients require a series of 1 – 3 CoolSculpting sessions to achieve their ideal outcome. This may vary based on the amount of fat present, how the patient responds to treatment, and other factors.

Is CoolSculpting permanent?

Fat cells destroyed during CoolSculpting will not grow back. However, gaining weight after CoolSculpting can cause the remaining fat cells to become enlarged, adding inches back to the patient’s frame. Without a doubt, the most effective way to maintain your CoolSculpting results over time is to avoid weight fluctuation through a consistent diet and regular exercise. With these behaviors, the results of CoolSculpting can last for many years.
