CoolSculpting is a breakthrough non-surgical procedure for the reduction of unwanted fat. Perhaps the recent buzz about CoolSculpting has captured your attention, and you want to know more. You may even be considering pursuing CoolSculpting to help tone problematic areas of your body. Before you schedule a consultation to learn about your options, review the information below from CoolSculpting from plastic surgeons Dr. Robert Graper and Dr. Garrett Harper, who describe the signs that you may be a great candidate for CoolSculpting.
You Have Stubborn Pockets of Body Fat
The first indication you may be a great candidate for CoolSculpting is that you have stubborn pockets of body fat that have not responded to diet or exercise efforts. CoolSculpting can be used to treat fat in the following areas:
- Inner or outer thighs
- Back or “bra fat” area
You Are at or Close to Your Target Weight
CoolSculpting providers generally do not perform the fat freezing procedure on individuals that are obese, as those patients won’t see great results. In order to qualify for treatment and enjoy transformative results, you should be at or close to your target weight. Also, you should not be pregnant or nursing at the time of CoolSculpting treatment.
You Can Be Patient with the Process
CoolSculpting may be a good option for you if you understand how the treatment works and are prepared to have patience with the process. You should understand that CoolSculpting freezes and destroys fat cells; the body then gradually eliminates the fat cells through its waste systems in the weeks and months following treatment. If you are expecting instant results, CoolSculpting probably is not suitable for you.
You Are In Good General Health
Your medical history will be reviewed and you will be asked you about any health conditions or previous surgeries you have had. In order to qualify as an appropriate candidate, you should be in good general health, free of any serious autoimmune or lymphatic system diseases. If you have recently had a serious surgery, we may ask you to postpone CoolSculpting until you have completely recovered in order to avoid complications.
