How To Keep Fat From Coming Back After CoolSculpting
Even fit and healthy individuals can struggle to lose those last few pounds and keep them off. For many men and women, this stubborn fat develops as a result of aging, pregnancy, hormones, or genetics and becomes resistant to traditional diet and exercise. It can, understandably, be frustrating to not get the results you want after consistent work in the gym and with your diet. Fortunately, cosmetic procedures – such as liposuction – may be an alternative.
For patients who aren’t interested in the expense or downtime associated with surgery, however, noninvasive fat reduction treatments can provide a fantastic solution for getting the slimmer, tighter contour you deserve when diet and exercise fail. Board-certified internist Dr. Dale Prokupek and the expert team at Aesthetic Body Solutions are proud to provide the advanced CoolSculpting® fat reduction treatment system in Beverly Hills, CA. Discover the life-changing benefits of CoolSculpting here, and learn what you can do to maintain your gorgeous results for years to come.
How does CoolSculpting work?
CoolSculpting fat reduction uses completely noninvasive cryolipolysis technology to effectively “freeze” and destroy fat cells without the need for needles, incisions, or anesthesia. During a CoolSculpting session, which may take about an hour depending on the area being treated, the advanced device pulls the fat toward the skin’s surface using gentle suction and cools the fat cells to a precise temperature. The fat cells ultimately die and are expelled from the body through natural functions. Most patients can return to their normal daily routines immediately following a CoolSculpting session and typically experience only mild side effects, such as bruising, redness, or itching, which resolve on their own within a few days.
Where can CoolSculpting be used?
CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared fat reduction treatment that is completely nonsurgical and can be used in a variety of areas, including:
- Love handles
- Under the butt
- Upper back/bra line
- Male chest
- Under the chin
While the results of CoolSculpting can certainly be stunning, Dr. Prokupek's patients should already be at or near their goal weight and have exhausted traditional methods before considering CoolSculpting fat reduction.
How many CoolSculpting treatments do I need?
The number of CoolSculpting sessions needed at Aesthetic Body Solutions can vary from patient to patient depending on the area being treated, the amount of excess fat, the patient’s goals, and other factors. In many cases, a single CoolSculpting session is enough to produce the patient’s desired outcome, while other patients may need 2 – 3 sessions spaced a few months apart. On average, patients can expect about a 20 – 30% reduction in fat cells in the treated area after one CoolSculpting session. Keep in mind, the results of CoolSculpting can take up to 3– 4 months to become fully apparent as the fat cells deteriorate and leave the body.
How long does CoolSculpting last?
The fat cells that are destroyed through CoolSculpting are eliminated and will not return to the body. However, new fat cells can be generated, and the remaining fat cells can still swell with subsequent weight gain. With proper CoolSculpting aftercare and a consistent lifestyle, many patients can enjoy their CoolSculpting results for years to come.
How do I maintain my CoolSculpting results?
To maintain and preserve your Beverly Hills CoolSculpting results for as long as possible, one of the most critical things you can do is to avoid subsequent weight gain. Gaining weight after CoolSculpting can cause fat cells to grow and can even stimulate the generation of new fat cells. In order to prolong your CoolSculpting results, use these beneficial tips:
- Avoid weight fluctuation
- Wait until you are done having children to get CoolSculpting
- Maintain a healthy diet
- Exercise regularly
