Keep It Cool: How to Tell If CoolSculpting is Right For You
- Posted on: Apr 15 2019
April showers bring the thoughts of your body in a swimsuit and that image can either be really good or really bad. If you are like most people, when it comes to bikini season, you aren’t quite ready to flaunt your stuff in front of everyone. Here at Gwinnett Dermatology and Georgia Dermatology Partners, one of the procedures that we offer patients is CoolSculpting. As a non-invasive body contouring procedure, Coolsculpting actually freezes your unwanted fat cells which are then naturally excreted from your body several months later on average. Sounds almost too good to be true, right? But, even though Coolsculpting gives patients real results, it’s not for everyone. So, how can you tell if it’s right for you?
You Can’t Get Rid of Stubborn Fat
Sometimes, no matter how much we diet or exercise, our body holds onto stubborn excess fat— especially around our abdomen, buttocks and upper thighs. Coolsculpting is great because it’s specifically designed to get rid of small pockets of fat that are otherwise unresponsive to diet and exercise.
You Are a Healthy Weight
No, you don’t have to be at your ideal weight to get Coolsculpting, but we typically only perform this procedure on patients who are in a fairly healthy weight range but that just need an extra push. If you have a lot of weight to lose, then Coolsculpting may not be right for you, whereas if you’re in reach of your ideal weight, then it may be the right fit.
The ultimate way for you to decide whether or not Coolsculpting is right for you is to come into our office for a consultation. During your consultation, we will do a brief physical examination, talk to you about Coolsculpting, and answer any questions that you have to help you determine whether or not you think Coolsculpting is the right fit.
