CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved method for reducing fat in a non-invasive procedure. It offers a great, non-surgical option for patients looking for fat-reduction. In this article, we are going to discuss the basics of CoolSculpting – it’s benefits and who is a good candidate.
What Exactly is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is non-invasive procedure that utilizes an FDA-approved freezing technique that reduces unwanted fat in the body. This procedure helps remove fat that you haven’t been able to lose with diet and exercise alone. CoolSculpting is a quick and painless procedure that allows you to immediately return to everyday activities.
During the procedure, controlled amounts of cooling are delivered to targeted areas to reduce fat. These fat cells are frozen, die, and your body eliminates them naturally.
Who is a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting works great for patients who have successfully lost weight with diet and exercise, but have remaining problem fat areas that won’t go away. The procedure is most successful at removing fat from the thighs, abdomen, and flank areas. That being said, CoolSculpting is not for everyone. If you have cryoglobulinemia, cold agglutinin disease, or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria, you may not be a good candidate for CoolSculpting. For patients with those pre-existing conditions, there are other fat-reduction alternatives to explore.
