CoolSculpting is the latest way to remove fat from those troublesome areas of your body, such as midsection, love handles and thighs. The procedure literally freezes the fat cells, which are eventually eliminated naturally from the body.
CoolSculpting is growing in popularity in mommy makeovers, and also is a popular stand alone procedure. Overall, it is a good option for many people because it is non-invasive, and does not require any recovery time, as liposuction does.
Below are some things to keep in mind with CoolSculpting:
Make Sure You Are a Good Candidate
CoolSculpting is not for losing weight. You should be near your ideal weight before you have the procedure. If you still need to lose some weight, Dr. Fiorillo will likely advise you to wait to have the procedure.
On the other hand, you do need to have enough pliable fat in the problem area that can actually be suctioned into the CoolSculpting device, so talk to Dr. Fiorillo about what you have in mind.
Number of Treatments
Some people only need a single treatment and they are happy with the 20% reduction fat, which is common. Others may do two or three procedures.
Be Prepared for Some Pain
About 10% of CoolSculpting patients do experience some pain after the procedure. You might feel fine the entire time, but you also may have pain afterwards that lingers for a few days.
If you do end up with some discomfort, taking ibuprofen every eight hours will usually take care of the problem. If you have more significant pain, Dr. Fiorillo can prescribe a stronger pain medication for you for a few days or a week.
