Fat Is Evenly Distributed
Fat cells are receptacles for excess lipids that are not needed for energy. When you lose (or gain) weight, the volume of fat cells change but the number of fat cells remain the same. With CoolSculpting, there is a 20-25% reduction in the number of fat cells in the treated areas. Since there is less fat cells in the treated area, there is less ability to store fat in the treated area. However, fat is still evenly distributed among the remaining fat cells. Therefore, fat will not reform in your thighs instead. We do recommend that you maintain a healthy diet and life style in order to maintain results.
Coolsculpting and Fat Cells
Coolsculpting is a fabulous procedure for reducing fat cells in a given area and freezes those fat cells. The bulge is slowly reduced by twenty percent in any given area treated. New bulges are not formed elsewhere as a result of this procedure. Please consult a board certified dermatologist who has all of the latest applicators for the best treatment results.
Where do fat cells go after CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting causes the selective and natural death of fat cells in the treated area. Since your body does not make any more fat cells after adolescence, there is no increase in fat cells in the treated area or any other area of your body. If you maintain your weight and a healthy lifestyle there is no reason to expect additional fat accumulation.
Fat accumulation post coolsculpting
After the treatment which will eliminate approximately 20% of the fat cells in the treated area, the remaining fat cells can shrink or grow based on weight gain or loss. However, new fat cells will not be produced in another area.
CoolSculpting and Fat Reduction
With each CoolSculpting treatment, 20-25% of the fat cells in the treated area go through a programmed cell death, apoptosis, and are permanently removed from the body. When you reach adolescence, the number of fat cells in your body is set. After CoolSculpting, anytime you consume fat, the fat is distributed equally among all of the remaining adipose cells in the body. As long as you maintain or stay close to your current weight, you will maintain your results. When patients feel like their fat has "moved" after CoolSculpting, it is because they are now noticing a new area of concern. Previously, this area might have not been at the forefront of their attention, but when another area of concern is diminished, they are more cognizant of a new area. This is why it is best to have a full "Treatment to Transformation" plan developed by your CoolSculpting provider.
coolsculpting selectively freezes fat cells to induce programmed cell death. You have a certain number of fat cells in your body and these cells do not divide. If you maintain your weight and a healthy lifestyle, you can maintain your results. However, if you gain weight, the fat cells you have will hypertrophy or get bigger.
