After learning about the revolutionary fat-freezing treatment, many people ask themselves, “Is CoolSculpting® right for me?” This question is important because the procedure requires the right candidate to produce the results you see in CoolSculpting® before and after images.
Dr. Angela Merlo, the premier provider of CoolSculpting® in New Jersey, often asks her patients a series of questions to determine if the procedure will deliver the results they are looking for.
- Do you avoid looking at yourself in the mirror?
- Do you dislike the way you look in clingy clothes?
- Do you have tight jeans in your closet that you want to fit into?
- Are you frustrated with paying for a gym membership or personal trainer and still struggling with fat pads?
- Are stubborn fat deposits affecting your self-esteem?
- Do you want to reduce your fat without surgery?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, Dr. Merlo believes CoolSculpting® may be able to reduce the bulges that are keeping you from feeling confident about your body.
Do You Qualify for CoolSculpting®?
Besides regaining the confidence that comes with a slim, sculpted physique, the best candidates for CoolSculpting® should also fulfill the following requirements:
A Healthy, Active Lifestyle
CoolSculpting® is intended for healthy adults. It is ideal for men and women who live active lifestyles and maintain healthy eating habits but still struggle with pockets of fat. While CoolSculpting® effects are long lasting, the transformation can be obscured by subsequent weight gain in surrounding areas. Therefore, to maintain your results, it is essential to exercise regularly and maintain a healthy diet to avoid excessive weight gain.
Isolated Pockets of Fat
CoolSculpting® is not a weight loss treatment, nor is it intended for individuals who are very overweight. The fat-freezing procedure is designed for isolated bulges of fat that cling to notorious problem areas. Popular treatment areas include:
- Belly fat
- Love handles
- Inner thigh fat
- Banana roll (fat below the buttocks)
- Bra bulge
- Double chins
- Upper arm fat
What Are the Risks and Side Effects of CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting®, unlike liposuction, is completely non-invasive, relying on controlled cooling to freeze fat bulges in the flanks, abdomen, arms, thighs, chest, back, or neck. Since CoolSculpting® does not require incisions, stitches, or injections, this non-invasive procedure has a low occurrence of side effects and a very low risk of adverse or unpleasant complications.
CoolSculpting® side effects are rare, but following your treatment, you may experience some mild tenderness, bruising, numbing, or redness around the treatment site. These symptoms are mild and dissipate without intervention within one to two weeks following your procedure. These effects are also common with an immune response, which is a good sign that the CoolSculpting® was effective and that your lymphatic system is hard at work collecting and processing the frozen fat cells out of your body.
