To understand the
results you can expect from CoolSculpting, it's important to first understand
the nature of fat cells. The number of fat cells in the adult human body does
not fluctuate. Instead, weight gains and losses are caused by fat cells getting
bigger or smaller, not increasing or decreasing in number. CoolSculpting is one
of the few cosmetic procedures available that actually reduces the number of
fat cells in the body. Once they're removed, these fat cells will not
"grow back," and you can maintain your CoolSculpting results for
however long you like by living a healthy lifestyle. However, your remaining
fat cells can still grow, causing weight gain. Therefore, while undergoing
CoolSculpting does not ensure that you'll never again need to worry about
gaining weight, the fat reduced by the procedure does NOT "grow
back." I hope this helped clarify things for you!
effectively permanent in that the frozen fat cells will not return; however, if
a patient does not maintain a steady weight it is entirely possible for
existing fat cells to enlarge and weight to be gained back. If you can keep your weight the same, results
will be long lasting.
Coolsculpting is best when
performed on an area that has an excess number of fat cells. For example,
women say, "When I gain weight, it goes straight to my belly."
That means that you were born with more fat cells in your abdominal area.
It would be great to perform coolsculpting in that area to reduce the
number of fat cells there and make that are more proportional with the rest of
your body. Then, if you gain weight, it will be more evenly distributed
over your body. It won't just "go straight" to one area.
The fat loss is permanent
after Coolsculpting. You typically lose 20-25% of the fat in the area
treated, each time you treat it. I have done it to myself and my staff.
It is truly effective and has no down time.
Best of Luck,
Coolsculpting destroys the fat cells permanently and you can't replace them. However IF you gain a lot of weight your other pre-existing fat cells cal get bigger. Like other fat removing or destroying techniques, the patients who do best are those who are in a weight loss program or those who maintain a stable weight.
i hope this answer was helpful.
Coolsculpting results in permanent fat reduction in the treated areas on your body. Each treatment eliminates 20-25% of the fat cells in the treatment area. The results are not temporary nor will you experience fat cell replacement.
We make no new fat cells after early teenage years. CoolSculpting decreases the number of fat cells in the area treated. Because we make no new fat cells as adults, our shape improvement after treatment is permanent. The stubborn bulge you treat is improved forever.
the results of coolsculpting are permanent however, there are still fat cells there that remain and those can enlarge if you do not keep your normal diet / exercise. Best, Dr. Emer.
Don't believe all the reviews that you read. The fact is that as long as you maintain a healthy diet and an active lifestyle the results of the CoolSculpting treatment can be permanent. Naturally, if you gain weight after the procedure then your remaining fat cells may enlarge or you may form new fat cells which can then negate your results. Hope this clears things up for you.
Unlike some energy sources that might traumatize fat cells and make the fat liquify and leave the cells until more fat is produced by those cells, CoolSculpting kills a certain percent of cells that are frozen. Liposuction removes a greater number of cells per volume treated than CoolSculpting kills but both leave behind, purposely, some living fat cells. One must have a thin layer of fat between the skin and underlying tissues, whether bone or muscle, to help with circulation, temperature regulation, insulation, nerve supply, glucose metabolism, etc. Neither liposuciton nor CoolSculpting are replacements for diet and exercise. If one has gained weight because there is a surplus of calories coming in over what is needed for the energy expended by the body for normal functions and exercise, then if that person has fat removed but doesn't change their diet or exericise, then fat must be stored because they are continuing to eat too many calories for what their body needs. That fat goes to different places, not just the area treated. But new cells don't grow; the fat gets stored in the residual cells, but usually less in the treated areas because there are less cells now to store that fat.
Remember, CoolSculpting is designed to treat stubborn focal bulges of fat in a person who is relatively in shape, and not to be used for obesity.
So freeze the fat away with CoolSculpting but eat a well balanced meal without exceeding the calories needed to sustain your body's metabolism, and you will see long term correction of fat reduction.
Coolsculpting is a great technique which freezes the fat in a given area. The results of the treatment is permanent provided you maintain a healthy life type and do not gain weight. Please consult an expert in Coolsculpting. Best, Dr. Green
