This is one of the most commonly asked questions from our patients. Does the fat removed by CoolSculpting come back?
Fat cells from CoolSculpting are crystallized and removed as waste matter from your body’s lymphatic system. So, those fat cells never return. You can also improve the number of fat cells that are eliminated by massaging the area(s) treated right after your treatment for a few minutes, as advised by your practitioner.
However, the remaining fat cells in your body can continue to increase in size if you don’t follow a healthy lifestyle. That means you can still gain weight. Fortunately, because there are less fat cells in the areas treated, there are less fat cells to expand in that area so the visible effects may still be better. Therefore, after your treatment, you’ll not be as large in that area as if you hadn’t had a treatment performed.
Some people believe that fat returns after CoolSculpting, but that’s only because they didn’t follow a healthy diet and exercise regimen, or are prone to weight gain. For that reason, it’s important that you speak with us when you’re considering CoolSculpting. We want to make sure that you’ll be able to get the results you want, and maintain them for as long as possible!
