- Upper arms
How Is CoolSculpting® Performed?
During a CoolSculpting® procedure, excess fat is held between two cooling panels. The panels deliver controlled cooling to crystallize (freeze) selected fat cells under the skin, without disturbing the surrounding tissue or skin. The fat cells die, and the body naturally processes and eliminates them through its natural waste removal system. This is not painful, and post-operative side effects are rare. There is no downtime after a CoolSculpting® session. Patients can return to work, exercise, and their regular routine very soon after treatment.
What Results Can I Expect from CoolSculpting®?
Results are not immediately obvious, but become apparent as the body flushes out the dead fat cells. This generally occurs around the four- to six-week mark, but it can take up to three to four months for optimal results to appear. The treated area looks slimmer, firmer and smoother, clothing fits better, and the patient feels more confident. Once the fat cells are gone, they will not return.
To enjoy long-lasting results, Dr. Mozaffari recommends his CoolSculpting® patients maintain their weight with a healthy diet and regular exercise. This is usually easy, because patients experience a burst of motivation after seeing their results from CoolSculpting® treatment.
Am I a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting®?
Ideal candidates for CoolSculpting® are individuals who:
- Are within about 30 pounds of their ideal weight
- Have stubborn areas of fat that are resistant to diet and fitness efforts
- Do not have excess skin
Dr. Mozaffari meets with every candidate individually and creates a personalized plan of treatment based around their area(s) of concern. He may recommend additional treatment sessions in order to meet the patient’s goals.
Are the Results of CoolSculpting® Permanent?
Once the treated fat cells are crystallized and eliminated from the body, they cannot regenerate or return. It is important to note, however, that future weight gain is still possible as the remaining fat cells in the treatment area and other body areas not treated by CoolSculpting® can expand. Should you gain weight after your treatment, it will be more evenly distributed on the body.
