Liposuction has been a very popular procedure over the years–we’ve all heard of it. While it does remove unwanted fatty deposits effectively, there are less invasive alternatives that may be more suitable for some. Did you know there is a treatment that is able to actually freeze the fat out of your system? This treatment is called CoolSculpting®. While it’s by no means a replacement for the liposuction procedure, the treatment is a less invasive alternative for removing stubborn fat in various areas of the body. The process allows the body to be contoured by freezing away the unwanted fat without actually entering the body.
The experts find CoolSculpting® to be highly effective at eliminating some of the most stubborn types of body fat. More and more patients have been turning from liposuction to this cold-based fat loss solution. In addition to being less invasive, there is no downtime after your treatment. And last but not least, the treatment is able to target areas that are more difficult to target with liposuction.
What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting uses precisely-targeted freezing technology to affect areas of excess fat. This blast of cold actually crystallizes the fat cells. These fat cell crystals quickly die off through a process called apoptosis. These apoptotic cells are then metabolized and eliminated by the body. One major advantage of this treatment is that it entirely eliminates the targeted fat cells forever. Even diet and exercise cannot achieve this. Diet and exercise will help to reduce the size of fat cells, but they will not eliminate them entirely.
Who is a Good Candidate?
Neither CoolSculpting® or liposuction is a weight loss solution. Instead, they are simply for removing stubborn fat. Both treatments are ideal for eliminating small pockets of stubborn fat. Ideal candidates for the treatment are patients that are healthy, at or close to their ideal weight, and looking to eliminate areas with stubborn fat that are not easily removed through diet and exercise alone. A good candidate for CoolSculpting® is someone who is generally in good shape but also has a few unwanted pockets of fat.
