Is CoolSculpting Effective?

Apr 28th 2021

Getting a “ slimmer physique” can feel like a struggle especially if you’ve been eating healthy and working hard for weeks.

But still, if you are not able to get rid of the stubborn body fats, you’re left with two choices: Either keep working rigorously and hope you get your desired look or live with that “stubborn body fat”.

And what if we told you that there was a third choice – and yes, it’s available at Kitto Plastic Surgery!

CoolSculpting is a perfect way to get rid of fats in the body that do not respond even to the strict diet and exercise routine.

What Is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting, also known as cryolipolysis, is a medical fat-freezing procedure that helps to eliminate excess fat cells underneath your skin.

The magic behind this procedure is that body fat is more temperature-sensitive than your skin.

CoolSculpting Surgery Procedure

The CoolSculpting procedure is safe and there’s no downtime or recovery associated with it. Further, it can lead up to 20% to 25% fat loss after a single treatment, and it’s no wonder that more and more people are opting for CoolSculpting!

The Procedure

CoolSculpting uses controlled cooling technology that causes the expulsion of excess fat cells from the body. The device used for CoolSculpting has rounded paddles that suction your skin.

At Kitto Plastic Surgery, the CoolSculpting device is placed on the targeted area to apply suction and it delivers controlled cooling. The skin and surrounding tissues remain unharmed while the fats are eliminated.

It takes around 35 to 60 minutes to treat each targeted area and at the end of each session, the area is massaged for 2 to 3 minutes, during which you may feel a tingling sensation.

Is CoolSculpting Effective?

CoolSculpting is taking the cosmetic treatment world by storm and for a good reason.

People who have experienced significant weight loss but are stuck because of the non-responsive fats, this procedure is one of the best ways for fat reduction.

1. It is a clinically proven method for fat loss

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive treatment that was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration in 2010.

2. Easy, painless procedures with lower risk

Every surgery has major risks, but CoolSculpting has much lower.

It has some side effects such as:
– Tugging sensation at the treatment site
– Temporary redness
– Bruising
– Skin sensitivity
– Swelling
But no anesthesia or bleeding is involved.

3. Zero downtime and recovery

You may resume your day immediately after the procedure because it is a non-invasive treatment. You may experience redness or a tingling effect on the treated area but all these effects are temporary.

4. Lower cost than other surgery

You may think that Liposuction surgery can also let you reduce targeted fats. Yes, you are right, but it is much more expensive.

Liposuction may cost more than CoolSculpting and may carry additional charges of anesthesia, medications, and much more.

5. Easy on a busy schedule

To get rid of fats via CoolSculpting, the maximum time required to treat an area is 60 minutes. And this surgery has no downtime. So, you don’t even have to stop your to-do list while you opt for CoolSculpting.

6. No scarring

CoolSculpting is a great alternative to other surgeries and it causes no scarring. So, you can get a fit look without any marks or scars.

7. Versatile treatment areas

This method can be used to target fats of various body parts:

-Under the chinFlanks, or “love handles”
-Upper arms

8. Effective results

The results of CoolSculpting are visible after 8 to 12 weeks and there is no chance of the fats emerging back because they have been freezed and destroyed during the process.

Further, the results can last a long time as long as you maintain a good healthy lifestyle.

9. Boosts self-confidence

You feel amazing when you look good, and CoolSculpting does that for you.

You may have been disappointed because you were not able to achieve the desired look even after following rigorous practice schedules and having a great diet.

CoolSculpting lets you boost your confidence by removing the extra fat.
