Does CoolSculpting Really Work?

In short, yes. CoolSculpting is an effective, non-surgical, non-invasive fat-removal procedure that can improve your body contour and give you a more toned appearance. It has been approved by the FDA since 2010 and offers several benefits that surgical fat-reduction treatments do not.

At Dr. Fugo Plastic Surgery and Laser Skin Care Center, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jonathan Fugo is the only full-service plastic surgeon in the Hudson Valley area who offers CoolSculpting. Unlike many plastic surgeons, Dr. Fugo also performs the procedure himself. Read on to learn about how CoolSculpting works and how Dr. Fugo can use it to help you attain the body contour you’ve always desired.

How CoolSculpting Works

Benefits of CoolSculptingCoolSculpting uses a process called cryolipolysis to literally freeze away your fat. The CoolSculpting device involves placing a fat roll between two panels that cool the fat to a freezing temperature. This destroys the targeted fat cells. Then, your body will naturally filter the dead fat cells out of your body during the weeks after treatment.

Studies have shown that CoolSculpting treatments can reduce the targeted area of fat by up to 25-30 percent. CoolSculpting can address fat in places such as:

  • Neck
  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Thighs
  • Hips
  • Upper arms

Is CoolSculpting Permanent?

Your CoolSculpting results will last indefinitely. Fat cells do not return after they’ve been removed. The areas you treated with CoolSculpting will not regain fat in the same proportions that they once did.

However, you must still do the work to maintain your results. You can still gain fat on your body. If you do, you may have an uneven or disproportionate figure. It’s crucial to exercise regularly and eat a healthy, balanced diet to keep your body looking the way you want it to.

Will CoolSculpting Help Me Lose Weight?

No, CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss procedure. If you are overweight or obese, you have to help yourself before CoolSculpting can help you. Once you’ve lost weight and are at or near your goal weight, CoolSculpting can help put the finishing touches on your journey of self-improvement.

Some areas of fat are just too stubborn for diet and exercise to get rid of them. That is where CoolSculpting comes in. It can help you achieve the look that you’ve already worked so hard for.

CoolSculpting vs. Liposuction

If you’re considering a fat-removal procedure, you may wonder whether CoolSculpting or liposuction is right for you. During your consultation with Dr. Fugo, he will ask you about your goals and needs, then craft a treatment plan to help give you the results you desire.

Generally, liposuction can achieve more dramatic results than CoolSculpting, and the results will become apparent more quickly, as liposuction removes all the targeted fat at once rather than filtering it out over a period of time. However, liposuction is also a surgical procedure that requires anesthesia, downtime, and a recovery period. Dr. Fugo will help you decide which is best for you.
