One of the main perks of CoolSculpting is that there is typically no downtime involved following the procedure. Your treatment with Dr. Fugo will take about 1-2 hours, after which you can return to your daily routine. You can even work from a laptop, read a couple chapters from a book, or watch TV during your treatment.
Surgical treatments like liposuction or a tummy tuck, although the correct choice for some, require weeks of modified activity during recovery. With CoolSculpting, you can get back to work almost immediately as your body naturally eliminates the frozen fat cells on its own.
Because cryolipolysis is a gradual process, you will not notice immediate, dramatic results as you would from surgical alternatives. Instead, your body will gradually eliminate the excess fat cells over time. You will notice a steady slimming of your body over the course of three weeks to three months. Most patients will see their full results after about 2-3 months with a 25-30 percent decrease of fat in the treated areas. Your body does all the work, naturally and painlessly eliminating dead fat cells.
Dr. Fugo often performs a series of treatments for patients who wish to enhance their results even further. This can be discussed during your consultation or in the months following your initial treatment.
CoolSculpting often results in a dramatic contouring of problem areas such as the love handles and lower abdomen. However, it is important to be patient throughout the process and maintain a healthy lifestyle to ensure your best possible results.
Once the fat is gone, it is gone for good. You can maintain long-lasting results for your new body by continuing a healthy diet and workout regimen.
Whether you’re looking to slim down for a big upcoming event, or simply want to feel more comfortable with your physical shape and size, CoolSculpting can be a very effective and attractive option for the right candidates.
