CoolSculpting On Your Neck: How Much Fat Can You Lose?

Double chins are one of the most common facial problems addressed by dermatologists and plastic surgeons. According to a study, 2 out of 3 adults in the U.S. are embarrassed about their jowls and chin area. It doesn’t help that having these unflattering fatty deposits in your neck and jaw area, which is also known as submental fullness, is not merely the byproduct of lifestyle choices but influenced by several other factors such as genetics, age, and hormones. Fortunately, there are cosmetic treatments such as CoolSculpting that can improve the appearance of the dreaded double chin.

So how much fat can you lose exactly with CoolSculpting around the neck and chin area? Clinical studies prove that CoolSculpting, which uses the science of Cryolipolysis, in the neck and chin, is a safe and effective way to reduce the appearance of a double chin. A study published in the Journal of Clinical Dermatology found that “there was a statistically significant reduction in submental fat and patients expressed high satisfaction with the treatment.” To make an informed decision on whether to undergo CoolSculpting chin fat or not, it’s important to know about the amount of fat you can lose with the procedure and the results that you can expect from it.

How Much Fat You Can Lose With CoolSculpting

With CoolSculpting, you can expect to lose between 20% and 80% of the fat cells in your problem area. The most significant factor that affects how much fat you can lose is the size of the treatment area. If you are CoolSculpting chin or having fat removed from a small area, like your neck, you can expect to lose around 80% of the localized fat cells. This figure applies to your underarms and knees as well.

But if you are having fat removed from a larger area such as your back, CoolSculpting can destroy roughly a fifth of the fat cells in the targeted area. Another important factor that affects the quality of your results is the volume of fat in the said area. If you have a lot of excess fat, you can expect to see a reduction of roughly 26%.

How Much Fat You Should Lose Before the Procedure

Ideally, you should be within 20-30 pounds of your ideal weight to be considered a good candidate for CoolSculpting. If you are within this range, it is not necessary for you to lose weight before your cryolipolysis fat freezing session. Patients who weigh closer to their goal weight tend to be more satisfied with the results of a single CoolSculpting session. This is because fat loss becomes more dramatic as you get closer to your ideal weight, making the fat reduction change more noticeable.

If you are over 30 pounds from your ideal weight, you need to lose at least enough weight to get within the recommended range. If you have too much fat, the results will not be as noticeable. For the best results with just one session, your doctor may recommend losing weight until you are within 10 pounds of your goal weight.

How Many CoolSculpting Sessions You Will Need

To know how many CoolSculpting sessions you will need to get the results you want, you need to visit your doctor for an initial consultation. Your doctor will review your aesthetic goals and assess your body fat distribution. He will also check your skin laxity, which can affect the results. This allows him to accurately determine how many sessions you will need to achieve your goal. 

Also, you will probably need a fat removal session per targeted area for every 10 pounds away from your goal weight. For example, if you want to remove fat from your upper arms and inner thighs and you are 20 pounds from your ideal weight, you will probably need two sessions for each problem area. This is also the perfect time to know about CoolSculpting cost.

Good Candidates for CoolSculpting

To be considered a good candidate for CoolSculpting, you should be someone who wants to improve the contours and proportions of your body by removing stubborn pockets of excess fat or fat bulge. You should be generally healthy and can set realistic expectations about the treatment and the results. You should also be confident in your ability to maintain a healthy weight after the treatment. 

If you gain over 10 pounds of fat, your skin may sag after losing the weight again. This may affect your satisfaction with the treatment's results. In order to avoid this, your doctor will recommend that you postpone taking treatment until you’re confident you can keep the pounds off in the future.

Procedure for CoolSculpting of the Neck or Chin

Your doctor will perform the treatment using a handheld CoolSculpting applicator, which looks similar to the nozzles of a vacuum cleaner. During the procedure, the doctor will apply a gel pad and applicator to your chin. The Coolmini applicator is designed to deliver controlled cooling to the targeted neck fat and chin fat. The device, which will administer suction and cooling technology to the target area, is moved over your skin.

You may feel some pulling and pinching during the process, but only minimal pain is expected if any at all. Your doctor will massage the treated areas immediately after treatment to break up any frozen deep tissue. This will help your body begin to absorb the destroyed treated fat cells, which will be naturally flushed out of your body. The massage can be uncomfortable for some.

The session can take around 35 minutes, but it's relaxing enough that you can read or listen to music during the procedure.

CoolSculpting Neck and Chin Results

There is little to no recovery time after your CoolSculpting procedure. Most patients can resume their usual activity immediately after the chin CoolSculpting. Some patients may experience minor redness or soreness on the chin, but this will typically subside within a few weeks.

You will notice double chin reduction results in the treated areas within three weeks of the procedure. Typical CoolSculpting results are reached after two or three months since your body needs time to flush out the unwanted fat cells out of your body. The fat-flushing process will continue for up to six months after the initial treatment.

Keep in mind that CoolSculpting is not designed to be a primary weight loss treatment. It will not treat obesity and shouldn’t replace a healthy lifestyle. In order to maintain results, you need to continue to eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly.

How to See the Results of Your CoolSculpting Treatment Sooner

There are several things you can do to make the effects visible sooner than expected. First, you should massage the treated area five times daily, five minutes at a time. Start doing this as soon as your session is over. Do this for about five days. If it's an area you can't reach, ask someone to massage it for you. To make sure that your lymphatic system is operating at its best, limit your intake of dairy products, such as milk, cheese, and yogurt. The lactic acid in dairy can stress out your lymphatic system and slow down its function. You should also avoid processed foods that are high in added sugar and trans fats, as these can also slow down your lymphatic system.

How to Lose and/or Keep Weight Off After Treatment

CoolSculpting is a fat removal cosmetic procedure, not a weight-loss treatment. Your doctor should emphasize this early on. The treatment will not alter the physical structure of your gastrointestinal system and “prevent” you from gaining weight in the future. The treatment merely freezes excess white fat cells in targeted areas which will be then flushed out of your body. 

If you’re already at your goal weight, it is absolutely important that you maintain your weight after treatment. Building body mass as weight gain is absolutely fine so you can eat more without gaining a subcutaneous fat deposit. If you exceed your daily caloric needs after treatment, the remaining fat cells in your body will just expand and render the effects of treatment useless.

Your doctor will also remind you not to lose weight too aggressively after CoolSculpting neck fat. You may be extremely motivated to burn more fat layer after treatment so you see the improvement to your body's contours. However, you must remember that weight loss should be healthy and sustainable. Slow and steady weight loss is ideal, which can be accomplished by maintaining a healthy diet and exercise habits. Once these healthy habits become an enjoyable part of your daily routine, it will be easier to maintain your ideal weight, and keeping your stubborn fat low will be effortless.

What Our Clients Say About Us

  • "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."
