Who is a Candidate?
Because CoolSculpting® is not ‘weight loss’ technology, it isn’t appropriate for everyone. However if you have very specific problem area(s), you may be a good candidate for the procedure. Ideal patients should not have an excessive amount of extra weight; in fact, it is recommended that they be fairly close to their ideal weight. CoolSculpting® is not a replacement for low-calorie diet—it does not remove fat cells in the same way as liposuction, nor does it cause you to lose pounds. It is a technique to sculpt those problems areas by killing the fat cells. If you have slightly bulging pockets where you could grab the excess fat (like love handles), you might want to consider CoolSculpting®. This procedure has become the gold standard for people who worry about undergoing liposuction and have small pockets of fat that bother them.
Are You a Candidate?
CoolSculpting® is a new procedure that uses special cooling plates and cooling energy technology to kill fat cells in your body. It isn’t a way to lose weight, but if you have areas of your body that contain stubborn fat that you can’t seem to eliminate, this treatment may be an option.
It isn’t for everyone though, so it does help to have a better understanding on who makes a good candidate. Here is everything you need to know about who may benefit from the procedure, as well as more about the procedure and recovery experience.
