What to Ask During Your CoolSculpting Consultation

CoolSculpting may be a noninvasive procedure, but patients must familiarize themselves about its effects on their body and how much of their aesthetic goals will CoolSculpting be able to achieve. During the complimentary consultation, they must be prepared to ask the questions that matter to their overall fitness plan. We have laid some of them out, so you would have an idea about this procedure.

1) Is CoolSculpting Safe?

Some patients find CoolSculpting too good to be true, so they may also doubt if it's safe. The quick answer is yes, it’s safe, and it's an FDA-cleared treatment. CoolSculpting eliminates fat cells by freezing them up with the CoolSculpting device. It then allows the body's metabolic processes to flush out the frozen fat cells, allowing fat bulges to flatten. 

CoolSculpting is guaranteed to be safe as the cold temperature it uses is only enough for freezing fat cells. The skin and surrounding tissues will be undamaged. It also has minimal downtime, so patients can return to normal activities shortly after the treatment.

2) Am I A Good Candidate?

If you have pinchable fat, then you’re most likely an ideal candidate. You must also be near your goal weight and would only want to remove stubborn fat in your body. Most people mistake CoolSculpting as an extreme weight loss solution. 

CoolSculpting is in fact not a tool for drastic weight loss, and shouldn’t be used as a treatment for obesity. It’s an effective treatment only for eliminating pockets of fat or subcutaneous fat. These are the types of fat layer that lie above the muscle and are difficult to lose.

3) How Many Sessions Do I Need?

Patients must discuss with their plastic surgeon how many treatment sessions they must take. A session of CoolSculpting takes about 30 minutes to an hour. Additional sessions will depend on your health and aesthetic goals.

4) What Can CoolSculpting Do For My Body?

As CoolSculpting freezes your fat cells and removes noticeable bulges, it improves the contours of your body and showcases your figure in turn. Patients may expect about 20% to 25% of reduced fat in the treated site. Here are the areas of body fat that it can resolve:

  • belly fat
  • inner and outer thighs
  • under the chin or the double chin
  • flanks or love handles
  • bra bulges
  • upper arms
  • bat wings
  • back
  • fat under the buttocks or the "banana roll"

Some patients worry about having sagging skin after this cosmetic treatment. What it does is the opposite because it can help tighten loose skin.

5) Are You A Certified Practitioner?

You must choose a highly-trained and trusted practitioner before proceeding with this treatment option. Don't be shy to ask this question. Ask the practitioner if they have already done similar procedures before.

6) Do You Have “Before” and “After” Results?

Highly-experienced CoolSculpting practitioners usually keep a gallery of all the "before" and "after'' pictures of their past clients. They would be more than willing to show these to you. Ask them if you can check out their gallery. This allows you to know what the results of their procedure look like.

7) How Long Will I Notice Results?

Each patient has a different metabolic process. Most of them notice initial effects after 3 weeks and notice the peak results of the procedure 3 months after treatment. Some may notice results sooner, while some may need to wait longer.

8) Is CoolSculpting Permanent?

Yes, the results of CoolSculpting are permanent. The dead cells that are flushed out by the body will no longer return, so you may enjoy a longer-lasting result for your flat tummy. However, you may need to avoid weight gain, because the remaining fat cells may still grow if you didn't continue your healthy diet and regular exercise habits.

9) How Can I Maintain or Improve Results?

Since CoolSculpting isn’t a weight loss procedure, patients must maintain their results. The goal is to avoid weight gain and keep your body looking toned.

Be on a regular diet and consume only healthy food. Create a nutrition plan to know how you will balance your diet by including fruits, vegetables, lean meat, whole grains, and healthy fat. You may indulge yourself once in a while and eat junk food, but it shouldn't be a part of your daily food intake

Patients must also improve their fitness routine and have an exercise program. Combine cardio with weight training to strengthen metabolism and burn unwanted fat.

10) What Are My Other Options for Fat Reduction?

It's important to seek the best fat-reducing procedure that's suitable for your aesthetic goals, current physique, and health. If you're looking for more significant results, you might want to consult your doctor about liposuction.

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."
