5 Signs You’re a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting
Perhaps you’ve heard the recent buzz around CoolSculpting, an incredible breakthrough in non-surgical body contouring. You may be interested in pursuing this groundbreaking technology that helps tone problematic areas that diet and exercise can’t reach, but first you need to decide if it’s right for you.
Here, Dr. Donofrio and our team have outlined a few indications to learn if CoolSculpting is a match for your body goals.
1. You Have Stubborn Fat Bulges
If you have pesky fat in all the wrong places, CoolSculpting may be just what you need to get the body you’ve been dreaming of. It is an advanced treatment for fat in the following trouble spots:
- Back (Bra Roll)
- Upper Arm
2. You Are Near Your Healthy Weight
Don’t mistake CoolSculpting as a weight-loss treatment—it’s not. It provides men and women with targeted fat reduction in specific places where diet and exercise can’t touch. The best results are possible when patients are at or close to their optimal weight.
3. Patience is a Virtue
To be completely satisfied with CoolSculpting, you must understand how the treatment works. Unlike liposuction, results are not immediate. The process includes freezing targeted fat, then allowing the body to dispose of the fat cells naturally. The results take time- about three or four weeks to be exact.
4. You Are in Relatively Good Health
Dr. Donofrio will review your medical history before recommending CoolSculpting as a viable treatment for contouring your body. You should be free from any severe lymphatic system and autoimmune diseases. Recent surgery may also cause a delay in this treatment.
5. Liposuction Doesn’t Interest You
Many of our patients find CoolSculpting as a great alternative to liposuction. It not only provides many of the same benefits, but it is more cost-effective. It is also more convenient, has a shorter recovery period, has no surgical risks, and requires no anesthesia.
