Sometimes it feels like no matter how many sit-ups you do each day, you will never get rid of your belly fat. You have tried cutting out certain foods, increasing cardio, eating low-carb, and limiting food after dinnertime. And still, the stubborn fat around your belly remains. 

Putting so much work into a goal and not seeing your desired results can feel frustrating. Should you give up on the idea of having toned abs altogether? 

Out of all the fat removal methods, CoolSculpting is the most noninvasive treatment that actually delivers noticeable results. Maybe it’s not time to give up on your efforts when you know CoolSculpting as a viable option. 

What Is CoolSculpting? 

CoolSculpting is a form of fat removal that uses freezing temperatures to kill the fat cells and allow the body to eliminate them naturally. This type of cryolipolysis is a proven science to remove fat without the need for surgery or anesthesia. Fat cells are more sensitive to cold temperatures than the skin or surrounding tissue. When you apply cold temperature therapy to stubborn areas of fatty tissue, the fat cells die, shrink, and flush out of your body naturally. 

If you have areas on your belly that are not responding to diet and exercise, it may be time to try CoolSculpting. The procedure will reduce fat in the area by up to 25% after three or four months. The results take time, but they are permanent. 

This does not mean that fat cannot accumulate in the area ever again. Most patients see maximized results when they pair CoolSculpting with a well-balanced diet and regular exercise. If you revert to poor eating and sedentary habits, the fat cells left over could grow and still show signs of increased fatty tissue around the same area. Fortunately, CoolSculpting can be performed in the same area more than once. In fact, sometimes repeat procedures are suggested for extra impressive results.

The Ideal Candidate for CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is not a substitute for eating healthy and moving your body. The ideal candidate is in excellent health physically. They are not considered overweight or obese. Instead, they have some trouble areas on their body that they wish were more toned to reflect the work they put into lifting weights and eating healthy foods. 

While CoolSculpting will work on any size body, the applicators cover a small amount of surface area at a time. Each application will incur an additional fee. These fees can add up. Because of this and other reasons, we do not recommend using CoolSculpting as a method for weight loss. Instead, it is recommended for patients with a solid diet and exercise plan who are within 30 lbs of their ideal weight. Most patients feel motivated to continue training in the gym after CoolSculpting because they are so thrilled with their toned abs and muscle definition. 

If you have underlying conditions, consult with a doctor before scheduling an appointment for CoolSculpting. Any skin sensitivity may keep you from being an ideal candidate for the procedure. 

What to Expect at a CoolSculpting Appointment

The sections on your abdomen with extra fat are vacuumed into the CoolSculpting applicator. At first, you will feel cold and tingly. Then, your skin will quickly become numb, and you will feel comfortable as your skin is in the applicator.

After about 30 minutes, the applicator is removed, and the area is massaged until your skin returns to room temperature. This can be the most uncomfortable part of the procedure, but it only lasts a few minutes. After the procedure, you can return to work, exercise right away, or enjoy a night out with friends. There is no recovery time with CoolSculpting. That is what makes it so great! 

Does CoolSculpting Work on Belly Fat? 

CoolSculpting certainly works on belly fat. It also works on thighs, the bra line, “love handles,” and other areas of concern. The procedure does not result in loose skin after eliminating the fat. Because this fat removal method takes a few months to allow the body to metabolize and flush the dead fat cells, the skin also has enough time to contract and elasticize. This is not to say CoolSculpting treats loose skin. If you have loose skin before the procedure, a tummy tuck or other cosmetic procedure can take care of that. 

If you have stubborn belly fat, schedule a CoolSculpting appointment to eliminate the extra fat. If you are happy with the results showing a 25% fat reduction in the area, you can get the procedure done again in the same area for even better results.
