When you gain weight, one of the first areas where you can see a noticeable increase in fat bulge is the stomach or belly. That’s because the midsection area is prone to accumulating more stubborn fat cells and they don’t break down as easily as other adipocytes in the body. But while it’s a struggle to achieve a flat stomach, there are new technologies and treatments that can help, such as CoolSculpting.
So how does CoolSculpting work for belly fat reduction? The procedure uses a special CoolSculpting applicator that freezes the excess fat cells in the stomach. The treated fat cells will eventually get metabolized and dispelled from the body for good, resulting in a visible fat reduction and improvement in your stomach contour.

Having a flat stomach isn’t always easy to achieve with a regular diet and exercise. Although you may have dropped a few pounds, you may still notice a bit of stubborn belly fat left behind. There are several reasons why stomach fat is so hard to lose:
Fortunately, it’s become easier and more convenient to lose stubborn body fat with the help of CoolSculpting. If you’re looking for non-surgical belly fat solutions, this revolutionary treatment can help target your excess fat cells without incisions and downtime. In fact, CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved body contouring treatment that can get rid of your unwanted fat in the following areas:
CoolSculpting uses the principle of cryolipolysis or fat freezing to eliminate stubborn fat cells in the lower abdomen and belly. It’s said that fat cells are more vulnerable to cold temperatures than other cells in the body. When they’re exposed to lower temperatures, they’ll freeze and begin an inflammatory process that will lead to the death of the adipose cells. The dead fat cells will then be expelled from the body through the lymphatic system.
This cosmetic procedure isn’t only effective for providing a visible reduction in belly fat bulge but also helps sculpt your lower abdomen area. It works great as an alternative to traditional liposuction if you want to reduce fat without undergoing the knife. It’s also possible to get CoolSculpting stomach treatment after plastic surgery to address areas with untreated pockets of fat and enhance its results.
Removing belly fat with CoolSculpting requires the use of specially-designed applicators developed by ZELTIQ. These applicators target the pinchable subcutaneous fat lying underneath the skin and deliver controlled cooling to freeze them. Providers can use several applicators for treating the stomach area:
This is a new and improved version of the original CoolSculpting machine. Unlike its predecessor, the CoolSculpting Elite has two applicators which means it can target multiple areas in a single session. It significantly cuts back the procedure time in half and offers more efficiency for treating stubborn belly fat.
It also has an upgraded design and features more suction power so it can draw more fatty tissue into the cooling cup. It can also cover more skin surfaces than the original CoolSculpting and provides more targeted cooling for the precise treatment of belly fat. This machine can also be used on other areas of the body such as the thighs, flanks, bra fat, buttocks, and upper arm.
This CoolSculpting applicator features a cup design that allows for better suctioning of bulging areas in the lower and upper abdomen. It allows for a more comfortable and faster treatment than the original CoolSculpting machine. In addition to eliminating belly fat, this applicator can also help contour and tone your abdominal region.
Also known as the ‘de-bulking applicator’, this CoolSculpting machine features an upgraded design for addressing problematic stomach areas with increased precision. It has a larger coverage area compared to the CoolCore Advantage and has a unique cup shape that adjusts to the visible bulge in the lower and upper abdomen areas to better freeze and reduce excess fat deposits.
Before your CoolSculpting belly fat removal, it’s important to have a consultation with your chosen provider. Make sure that you’re working with a certified CoolSculpting provider who can administer the cosmetic procedure safely and expertly. After consultation, you’ll receive a customized treatment plan that details how many sessions you’ll need to have to get optimal results. On average, people get at least 2 treatments for belly CoolSculpting.
There’s no extensive preparation needed before your CoolSculpting session. However, you may be advised to lose some weight before the treatment. You can see better CoolSculpting results if you’re at least within 5 pounds of your target weight. You’ll also need to avoid certain medications and supplements which may cause bruising and interfere with your treatment.
CoolSculpting procedures are typically done in an outpatient setting and require no anesthesia. Here’s an overview of what happens during a fat reduction treatment:
Since it’s not surgical, belly CoolSculpting procedures have fewer risks and complications than liposuction. But do note that there are still several side effects that you may experience after the treatment. Here are some of the possible aftereffects of CoolSculpting on the stomach and lower abdomen:
CoolSculpting isn’t an immediate fix for belly fat removal. You need patience and commitment to undergo multiple treatments to achieve your desired outcomes. Initial results may be visible in as little as 3 weeks but because the fat elimination process takes time, you’ll have to wait until 2 to 3 months to see noticeable stomach fat reduction and body contouring.
Your body will continue to process the frozen fat cells for up to 6 months after treatment so expect that you can see more dramatic results within that timeframe. There are also several aftercare practices that can help with fat elimination and improve your results:
As long as you don’t gain new weight, the results of belly CoolSculpting treatment are permanent. Once the frozen fat cells are removed from the body, they won’t come back and the treated areas will look more contoured and slimmer. However, if you fail to watch your weight, the remaining fat cells in the area may expand and lead to new visible bulges.
CoolSculpting is a fat removal procedure that can help contour and shape your body. It shouldn’t be treated as a weight loss solution as it won’t help you drop significant amounts of pounds and cause changes in the scale.
However, the amount of fat reduction can translate to noticeable improvements in your clothing size. Some people have noticed themselves fitting better in their jeans or clothes after contouring their bodies and removing excess fat cells with CoolSculpting.
This treatment is also a great investment for your overall physical well-being. The fat-reducing and body-contouring effects of CoolSculpting may motivate you to make improvements in your lifestyle and diet and help you get a start on your weight loss journey.
Belly fat is a common problem area for a lot of people. No matter how diligent they are in exercising and dieting, the fat cells in the stomach don’t go away easily. For this reason, CoolSculpting is an excellent treatment that can safely get rid of excess fat cells and contour your lower abdomen.

"The treatment itself was not uncomfortable. Afterwords, I felt great. I didn't really notice anything for about 30 days. After day 30 until about a month later, I started noticing that my favorite jeans were not as tight anymore. I wasn't having to suck in to get them buttoned. And by that two month period after my CoolSculpting
"It's subtle at first, and then a month later you look and go, "Wow - It really did something!" It really moved the bar for me, and I'm feeling better about myself already. It feels so good to put on anything and know I look as good as I've ever looked. And I didn't say that or feel that when I was in my 20's, 30's, and 40's."
