In theory, fat loss seems easy. Just work out, eat clean, and avoid sugary foods, right? Not exactly. If you’ve been spending long hours in the gym, meal-prepping every last bite to eat, and fighting the urge to eat the pint of ice cream buried in your freezer, only to hit a weight-loss plateau—-it can be frustrating. If any of the above methods seem familiar, we’d guess you know exactly how hard it can be to lose those last few pesky pounds of fat.  

Luckily, with CoolSculpting® at Birmingham Minimally Invasive Surgery (BMI), you can finally shed your exercise- & diet-resistant fat. While CoolSculpting isn’t a solution for weight loss, it can reduce up to 25% of fat in the targeted area! Learn everything you need to know about CoolSculpting, and how you can tone up just in time for summer.

What Is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting, also called cryolipolysis, is a non-surgical treatment for fat reduction that assists in a more toned, sculpted, and confident body in just a few sessions. FDA-cleared for numerous areas on the body, CoolSculpting can help you lose fat on your love handles, inner thighs, back, arms, abdomen, chin, and more. 

A popular alternative to liposuction, cryolipolysis can deliver outstanding results without invasive techniques. Before your CoolSculpting treatment, your provider will develop a treatment plan based on your weight, medical history, and desired results so that you can get the most out of this innovative, powerful treatment. 

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

CoolSculpting freezes fat cells at sub-40-degree temperatures. After CoolSculpting works its magic, the body naturally disposes of the frozen fat cells through the lymphatic system. For best results, most CoolSculpting sessions are anywhere from 35 minutes to three hours, depending on the treatment area and your desired results. 

Our team may also recommend multiple CoolSculpting sessions for certain areas of resistant, hard-to-treat areas of fat. Typically, most patients need two to three sessions to achieve a toned, sculpted physique. However, everybody is different, so you may need more or fewer sessions to achieve your optimal results.

What Is Coolsculpting?

*Results may vary

It doesn’t matter how strict your diet or how intense your exercise regime is, you just can’t seem to shift stubborn fat from certain areas. We all have those troublesome areas where fat can build up. Common culprits include the thighs, tops of the arms, hips, and stomach, and no matter how hard you try, you just can’t target these areas enough.

The good news is that a new procedure could hold the key to eliminating fat from these areas. Cleared by the FDA and developed by renowned specialists at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard University, CoolSculpting® uses a patented technique that “freezes” fat cells without any downtime and, most importantly, without any surgery. What’s more, the results are noticeable and they last.

How CoolSculpting® Works

Is it really possible to freeze away fat? Well, and here comes the science bit, when fat cells freeze they can be targeted precisely by the CoolSculpting® process. Freezing fat cells triggers them into a natural cell death and the procedure is so precise that no damage will occur to surrounding nerves, skin, or tissue.

Once frozen, the fat cells will start to wither and die. The body then naturally eliminates them and leaves behind the perfectly sculpted areas you always dreamed of. From sleeker hips to more svelte thighs, CoolSculpting® can give you the body you want without resorting to drastic diets or injuring yourself through harsh exercise.

Benefits of CoolSculpting®

One of the most notable benefits of CoolSculpting® is that it is non-invasive. That means you can rid yourself of stubborn fat cells without injections or incisions. The procedure is also painless and many people have been known to even fall asleep during their treatment. You can also return to your normal activities right after your treatment — that means no downtime, no time off work, and no long wait to see the results.

If you are looking for a procedure that eliminates fat cells permanently, CoolSculpting® is the answer. While exercise and diet can reduce the size of fat cells, these methods can’t remove them from the body completely. CoolSculpting® can, and that is perhaps the biggest benefit of all.
