Who Can Opt for CoolSculpting? 

When diet and exercise fail to yield the results you’re looking for, you will want to consider CoolSculpting for stubborn fat reduction. A good candidate for CoolSculpting should be in good health, be in their ideal weight range, and have problem areas such as tummy bulges, love handles, or excess fat below the chin. Keep reading to learn more about what makes an excellent CoolSculpting candidate!

Who is the Right Candidate?

The right candidate for CoolSculpting is someone who wishes to get rid of the excess fat on their body but wants to avoid a more invasive procedure like liposuction. Patients can benefit from CoolSculpting if they do not want to go through a recovery process with downtime. CoolSculpting appeals to many patients because there is little to no discomfort involved, no medication required, and absolutely no surgery involved! You might feel an intense cooling sensation at the start of treatment, which will quickly numb the skin, allowing you to sit back and relax while CoolSculpting freezes and destroys your stubborn fat cells. The procedure can provide noticeable, natural-looking results, so no one will realize you had treatment.

Who is Not the Right Candidate for CoolSculpting? 

CoolSculpting effectively removes stubborn fat, but will not treat significant skin laxity. If severe skin laxity caused by pregnancy, weight loss, or the aging process is hiding your abdominal contour, you will benefit more from another treatment like the tummy tuck. You are also not the right candidate if you are pregnant, if you have some implanted medical devices in your body like a pacemaker, or if you suffer from Raynaud’s Disease. If you have had surgery in the past in the area that you would like treated, CoolSculpting might not be suitable for you. 

CoolSculpting is not a procedure that every person can get. It will depend on the person’s condition and the type of results you would like to get. It should not be a shortcut to drastic or rapid weight loss. For the best results, you must ensure you are within your healthy weight range and be prepared to maintain that weight after treatment. If you have large areas of stubborn fat, consider treatment with liposuction for the best results.
