The traditional advice that is given to an individual who is trying to lose weight is to diet and exercise, and eventually they are going to lose fat. And it’s true. If a person changes their diet, lowers their calorie intake, makes adjustments in the types of food that they eat and if they couple this with an increase in exercise, they are going to see some weight loss. However, what this traditional wisdom does not take into consideration is the fact that there are some parts of your body that are just not affected by diet and exercise. For example, love handles, belly bulges and muffin tops do not always go away even if a person diets and exercises.
The reality is that a lot of people go through an up-and-down roller coaster ride with body fat. They use a fad diet, they use some popular exercise phenomenon and they lose weight, but they are still left with stubborn pockets of fat in certain areas. Most of these individuals have heard about body sculpting procedures that require surgery, such as liposuction. However, many are afraid to use liposuction because of some of the negative stories they’ve heard about side effects and recovery times. Thankfully, there is a procedure that is available that allows people to lose weight by sculpting their stubborn fat deposits. This innovative procedure is CoolSculpting®.
CoolSculpting® was approved by the FDA as a way of gently cooling unwanted fat cells in the body. This causes the body to safely destroy the fat cells and remove them from the body through the natural waste removal process. Just weeks after the CoolSculpting® procedure is performed, fat cells begin a process that is referred to as apoptosis. This causes fat cells to shrink and then eventually disappear.
CoolSculpting® is a method that successfully reduces fat in the treated areas without harming any of the surrounding tissue. The procedure is performed in the comfort of our office. The applicator specifically targets fat by delivering a cooling sensation to the treated area in a precise and controlled way. The cold temperature freezes the fat cells and kills them.
It is important to emphasize that CoolSculpting® is not designed to be a weight loss program for overweight individuals. It is, as its name implies, a procedure that uses cold temperatures to gently sculpt the body. This means that the best candidates are individuals who are at or close to their healthy BMI, but who have pockets of fat that they cannot remove with diet and exercise alone.
CoolSculpting® has helped thousands of people obtain the body that they’ve always wanted. It is safe, it is not invasive and, most importantly, it works.
