CoolSculpting Q & A

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a fat-cooling procedure that freezes your fat cells to the point they can no longer hold volume. Since you can target specific areas of fat, you can get the treatment to contour your body’s curves and reduce stubborn pockets of fat by up to 20-25%.

Compared to cosmetic body contouring surgeries like tummy tucks, CoolSculpting is noninvasive and involves far less preparation and aftercare. While more subtle, the results of CoolSculpting look much more natural and do not involve any scarring.

Excel Medicine offers safe and remarkably effective CoolSculpting procedures after an initial consultation. During your consultation, your Excel Medicine provider helps you determine your goals and makes sure you’re a safe candidate to undergo the treatment. They can also estimate the number of sessions you need based on the size of the treatment area.

Can I target any area with CoolSculpting?

Fat distribution is one of the factors determining the shape of your body. While you can’t change more permanent contributing factors like your height or bone structure, you can affect the fat distribution with body contouring procedures like CoolSculpting.

CoolSculpting is versatile and indiscriminately treats areas where body fat often builds up, such as your:

  • Upper abdomen
  • Lower abdomen
  • Inner thighs
  • Outer thighs
  • Love handles
  • Arms
  • Chin
  • Neck
  • Bra fat
  • Back
  • Under the buttocks

While treating areas of fat like these, the CoolSculpting handheld applicator combines suction with freezing temperatures to cause fat cells in the targeted region to break down.

In the months after the procedure, your body naturally metabolizes those cells. Other tissues, like nerves and muscles, do not break down with CoolSculpting.

Am I a good candidate after CoolSculpting?

The possibilities of CoolSculpting are intriguing, and it’s very safe for most individuals interested in a modest and safe fat removal option. However, it is not a weight-loss treatment, and you won’t experience a significant drop in weight with your results. You’re a candidate for CoolSculpting if you’re relatively healthy and already near your goal weight.

Your Excel Medicine provider screens your medical history to make sure you don’t have any conditions that CoolSculpting could affect. They also talk to you about your aesthetic goals to make sure CoolSculpting is the appropriate choice for treatment.
