5 Signs You Are A Good Candidate for CoolSculpting
We all have them – stubborn fat pockets that seem utterly immune to any amount of diet and exercise. Luckily, non-invasive body contouring treatments like CoolSculpting make it a breeze for men and women to finally achieve their dream figure.
Are you contemplating this treatment? Consider these five factors that might make you a great candidate for CoolSculpting.
You’re Healthy and Near Your Target Weight
Not all body sculpting procedures are the same. While CoolSculpting helps remove unwanted fat stores throughout the body, it is not the same as a weight loss surgery or treatment. As a result, the best candidates are healthy men and women who are near or at their target weight.
Post-treatment, a healthy lifestyle also plays a critical role in keeping unwanted fat off. Although CoolSculpting physically destroys excess fat cells, weight gain can increase the size of fat cells elsewhere on the body and may require retreatment.
You Have Stubborn Fat but Don’t Want Surgery
Although liposuction has long been considered the go-to body-sculpting solution, this surgical treatment isn’t for everyone. CoolSculpting is an excellent alternative for men and women looking to get rid of stubborn fat pockets but don’t want to undergo lengthy preparation or recovery. While CoolSculpting may have some post-treatment side effects such as bruising and tenderness, these typically go away within a week of treatment – allowing patients to get back to their routines quickly.
You Have Pinchable Fat
As CoolSculpting uses a clamp-like applicator to deliver the treatment, it’s essential that the targeted area is “pinchable” or can be pulled away from the body. Non-pinchable fat or undefined fat pockets can make it difficult to give patients the results they’re looking for. Likewise, too much skin laxity or unhealthy skin can keep patients from achieving their dream results.
You’re Not Pregnant or Planning on Becoming Pregnant
Considering all the physical changes that happen to a woman’s body during nine months of pregnancy, it’s no wonder why so many turn to CoolSculpting as a post-partum treatment for getting their pre-baby body back.
However, getting CoolSculpting between pregnancies can leave patients with less-than-satisfying results and may require significant retreatment to achieve their goals. With that in mind, we recommend waiting until after you’ve had all your children before pursuing CoolSculpting as your body sculpting solution of choice.
You Have Reasonable Expectations
Like any other non-invasive cosmetic procedure, it’s important that patients have a strong understanding of the process and how long it can take to see results. Depending on the treatment area and desired results, it can take several treatments spread out over the course of a few months for patients to reach their final goal. During your consultation, Dr. Cosgrove can provide you with a realistic treatment timeline and results.
