Stubborn pockets of fat are ever present as ‘love handles’ and as fat in the lower abdomen. They resist all exercise and are a sore sight to a fit individual. How can this fat be eliminated? Is there a safe and non-surgical method to remove this fat or do I simply have to live with this? Will there be any side effects if this fat is medically removed by liposuction? Is liposuction necessary at all?
These are some of the common questions confounding any individual chasing ideas to eliminate love handles and fat in ‘difficult’ areas. Flab simply builds up in these trouble areas, irrespective of the exercise regimen or the strict diet plan. To address this has come the miracle of modern technology in the form of a revolutionary procedure called coolsculpting.
Coolsculpting is a revolutionary technology that has been developed by scientists from Harvard working together with doctors from the Boston Medical Hospital. The basic idea is that the application of cooling has an effect on fat cells. With this selective application of cold, at the right temperature, fat cells die and the body naturally eliminates them. The procedure works on the idea that the ‘bulge’ of fat is pulled between 2 cooling pates, where it is cooled under a vacuum. If it is too thick for the machine, then other weight loss methods have to be considered. Hence, coolsculpting is not a treatment for obesity.
The main advantages of this procedure include
Results are visible with basic sessions and a few extra sessions may be needed only to enhance the look! A typical treatment sees results varying between 20 to 25%. In most cases, the skin just shrinks along with the fat. Thus all droopiness is eliminated. Further, the procedure leads to permanent destruction of fat cells.
The fat is eliminated naturally as part of the metabolic process. Fat is a stored form of energy and is burnt off as calories. However, it must be remembered that coolsculpting is not a treatment for obesity or other related ‘weight’ issues.
Coolsculpting only helps to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat. Only a proper diet and exercise regimen can help lose weight and it is best to seek help from weight loss clinics or consult medical professionals for the same.
