CoolSculpting® is a nonsurgical procedure that can help patients get rid of stubborn pockets of fat in the abdomen, back, under the chin, or other parts of the body. CoolSculpting harnesses the power of cryolipolysis to freeze fat cells without damaging the surrounding tissues. Once the fat cells have been frozen, they die off and are naturally absorbed by the body over the next few months. Ideal candidates are healthy people who have a persistent area of fat that dieting and exercising haven’t helped. Here are five benefits that CoolSculpting has over more invasive procedures.
Compared to liposuction and other surgical procedures, CoolSculpting is significantly more affordable. When patients undergo liposuction or a tummy tuck, they’re not just paying for the procedure. The price includes the cost of anesthesia, operating room fees, and medications for recovery.
Because CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical procedure, there’s a reduced risk of complications. The medical provider simply applies a gel pad to the patient’s skin, meaning there’s no risk of infection or other surgical complications.
Easy to Schedule
If a patient undergoes surgery to remove fat, they typically have to take time off of work and find someone to drive them to and from the procedure. CoolSculpting treatments usually take an hour or less to complete and don’t require any recovery time.
Results Have a Natural Appearance
Because the results of CoolSculpting are more gradual, they typically look natural and complement your dedication to a healthy lifestyle. Patients shouldn’t have saggy skin in the areas that have been treated.
If CoolSculpting patients maintain the same level of exercise and healthy eating habits after their treatment, they should be able to maintain their results. Because surgical fat removal involves a more drastic change to the patient’s body, it can be more difficult for them to avoid regaining weight.
