Freezing Your Stomach Fat With CoolSculpting

Stubborn pockets of fat usually evade our best-laid exercise and nutrition plans, and they tend to cling to our bodies despite our healthy habits. Belly fat is possibly the most stubborn of bulges. It notoriously resists even with continuous workouts and a healthy lifestyle. This led to people seeking non-invasive procedures such as CoolSculpting, also known as cryogenic lipolysis, to get rid of the stubborn belly fat.

So how can a CoolSculpting procedure reduce tummy fat? CoolSculpting technology safely delivers controlled cooling to gently freeze stubborn fat cells underneath the skin in a process called cryolipolysis. It works by freezing fat cells at a certain temperature and allowing the body to naturally eliminate them. The treatment eliminates around 20% to 25% of fat around the treatment area in just one session. It’s a non-invasive and non-surgical procedure involving fat freeze, which means that it doesn’t involve any sedation, anesthesia, incisions, or discomfort in the treated area or surrounding tissue.

Can CoolSculpting Freeze Stomach Fat?

Yes. CoolSculpting was originally designed to be used to reduce excess fat, which is why one of the most common areas for treatment is the lower abdomen. While CoolSculpting is primarily used on the stomach for fat loss, it can also be used on various other areas of the body. Some of the common areas to use CoolSculpting as a fat reduction procedure are double chin, arms, inner thigh and outer thighs, abdominal fat, and buttocks.

Cool sculpting treatment uses completely noninvasive cryolipolysis treatment to effectively freeze and destroy fat cells without the need for needles, incisions, or anesthesia. During a CoolSculpting session, which may take about an hour depending on the area being treated, the fat freezing machine pulls the fat deposit toward the treated area surface using gentle suction and cools down the fat cells to an exact, accurate temperature. The treated fat cells ultimately die and are expelled from the body through natural functions.

Why Is Belly Fat Hard to Lose?

Belly fat is one of the most popular reasons for undergoing a CoolSculpting treatment. According to most patients, stubborn belly fat is the hardest body fat to lose with natural activities such as exercise and diet. Therefore, to recognize the best way to lose belly fat, first understand what causes the weight to cling to our abdomen.

Not all fat is the same. Subcutaneous fat is the fat below the skin's surface. There’s also visceral fat which is the fat that deposits within the abdominal cavity and wraps around the organs. Furthermore, not all of the fat cells have the same characteristics. Fat cells that have more Alpha-2 receptors are programmed to store fat in the long term. This is stubborn fat. Fat cells that have more Beta-2 receptors are programmed and set to break down when the body needs energy.

For a lot of people, belly bulges essentially consist of fat cells that have more Alpha-2 receptors. Therefore, the body clings to this fat. It resists diet and exercise. In a situation like this, the best way to lose belly fat may be fat reduction treatments, like liposuction or CoolSculpting.

How Much Fat Can You Lose on Your Stomach With CoolSculpting?

On average, it’s possible to remove 20% to 25% of localized fat cells through a single CoolSculpting session.

When you cool a targeted area of your body, it's possible to trigger cell death in subcutaneous fat, which your body then processes and eliminates as waste. The fat cells that are removed don’t return, but the treatment doesn’t prevent your body from storing new fat cells in the same area. 

Each session will eliminate between 20% and 25% of fat cells in a given area. While the amount of subcutaneous fat in an area affects how much fat can be eliminated, the most significant factor determining how much fat can be eliminated is the size of the area. 

Therefore, if you eliminate 25% of the fat cells in a given area after one session, you can expect a subsequent session to remove approximately 25% of the remaining fat cells.

When talking about the physical results, some inches around the stomach area can be noticeably reduced after a CoolSculpting treatment. A lot of factors affect how many inches you can expect to get rid of with treatment. If you’re trying to eliminate unwanted fat from a small area, you may lose half of an inch at most. If you’re eliminating unwanted fat from a large area, like your chest or stomach, you may lose two or three inches of the fat bulge.

It takes some time for one’s body to start the process of expulsion, and the initial results aren’t visible for around three weeks. Once the process begins, patients can see weight reduction for up to two months or more. The CoolSculpting results are a subtle transformation that improves appearance gradually and without the appearance of radical action.

Freezing Away Fat Permanently

The fat removal results of CoolSculpting are permanent. The way that fat cells work and behave is unique when compared to other cells in the body, such as skin cells, which can replicate. Fat cells aren’t capable of splitting up or being renewed, so when a fat cell is destroyed, it's gone permanently.

This is why the results of CoolSculpting are permanent. After the treatment damages the membrane of the frozen fat cells and destroys the cell beyond repair, the dead fat cells are eventually broken down and metabolized by the body, and then removed after it’s been used for fuel. This means that it will be more difficult for you to retrieve or regain fat since there will be fewer fat cells left for storage.

Your contours will stay improved for as long as you can maintain and keep your weight within about 10 pounds. There are times where medical conditions can cause one’s body to store fat in the abdomen. Where you store excess energy in your body usually comes down to genetics. If you had the fat cells in your thighs demolished or destroyed, you’re likely to store excess energy in the fat cells that stay in your thighs if you gain weight after the treatment.

Ideal Candidates for Stomach CoolSculpting

Many people are potential candidates for this treatment, but the ideal candidates are the ones who have up to 20% to 30% of fat that can be reduced and those who have committed to healthy lifestyle practices. It’s ideal for the patient to have no more than 10 pounds from his or her goal weight. Candidates include all men and women who aren’t currently pregnant or planning to be, as pregnancy will undo the results of your treatment. Additionally, this treatment is approved for most healthy adults. If you’re suffering from an autoimmune disorder that can cause excessive weakness, discomfort, or pain, you won’t be considered a good candidate for this procedure. 

It’s also best to keep in mind a realistic goal before undergoing a CoolSculpting treatment. As it’s a body sculpting treatment, one shouldn’t consider it if they’re trying to lose weight. Rather, you should only consider it if you’re satisfied with your weight but want to improve the look of certain contours.

Is CoolSculpting an Alternative to Losing Overall Weight?

CoolSculpting is not a substitute for a weight loss program. If you’re overweight or obese, your surgeon will advise you to lose the weight before you try the CoolSculpting treatment.

CoolSculpting is more about spot treating than doing a full-body slim down. This treatment has been approved for the particular purpose of reducing body fat, and any reduction in body weight is mainly icing on the cake. Patients shouldn’t go for this treatment for the express purpose of losing weight, especially if they’re not yet committed to living a healthy lifestyle that will help them prevent future fat gain.

After a CoolSculpting, the physical structure of your gastrointestinal system isn’t being changed to prevent you from gaining weight in the future. Rather, excess white fat cells in targeted areas/regions are being frozen to death and eliminated from the body.

If you’re already at your goal weight, it’s absolutely crucial that you maintain your weight after treatment. Any weight gain should be from building muscle mass, so it’s possible to eat more but not gain fat. If you go beyond your daily caloric needs after the treatment, the fat cells that remain in your body will expand and negate the effects of the treatment.

Slow and steady weight loss is from a healthy diet and exercise practices. Once these healthy habits become a fun part of your daily routine, maintaining your ideal weight and level of body fat will come naturally and 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."
