CoolSculpting is a body contouring procedure — not a weight loss procedure
Our CoolSculpting in Fort Collins is a body contouring procedure that can remove fat cells from specific parts of your body. It’s not a weight loss procedure. You should be close to your goal weight to qualify for this procedure, and CoolSculpting isn’t deemed to be suitable for patients who are overweight. To understand the difference between fat reduction and weight loss, you must understand how fat cells are distributed in the body and how weight loss and gain occur.
Human adults have a fairly uniform number of fat cells in the body throughout their lives. When you lose or gain weight, you don’t lose or gain new fat cells — the existing fat cells simply expand or contract. Some people may have excessive fat distribution in specific parts of the body, leading to “stubborn fat cells” that don’t respond to dieting and exercise. CoolSculpting removes those fat cells from the body, thus recontouring your body.
