When you lose weight, you will be able to remove most of the fat on your body. However, there are some areas where you will still have stubborn fat that simply won't go away. You might need to take extra measures to remove fat in these areas.
The Nature of Stubborn Fat
The type of fat that is the most stubborn is subcutaneous fat. Men have the hardest time losing fat around their love handles. Women have the hardest time losing fat around their thighs, hips, and butt. Diet and exercise can cause you to lose weight but can also make stubborn fat even more stubborn. You might find yourself losing weight in areas where you don't want to.
Removing Stubborn Fat
Fortunately, there are technologies that can be used to remove stubborn fat such as CoolSculpting. With CoolSculpting, the area where you would like to have fat reduced is frozen. This destroys the fat cells and causes the body to expel them.
What to Expect
When you go in for a CoolSculping treatment, the specialist will examine your body. He or she will also ask you about your goals and your budget. The CoolSculping plan will be tailored toward your situation.
After the Procedure
The appeal of CoolSculpting is that it does not require you to remain in the hospital after the procedure and it is non-invasive. You can leave right after the procedure and you will not have any scars. During the procedure, many patients take naps or read a book.
The procedure does not produce results right away. Instead, your body will process the fat and remove it. Once the fat has been removed, you can choose to return and have another procedure performed if you would like to further remove stubborn fat missed by the last time.
Areas Most Often Treated
There are various areas that can be treated through CoolSculping based on your gender. Women typically receive CoolSculping under the chin, near the stomach and abdomen, and on the thighs. The buttocks is another common region for CoolSculpting. Men receive CoolSculping in all of these areas and also the chest area.
CoolSculping Doesn't Have the Side Effects of Other Treatments
The great thing about CoolSculpting is that it does not have side effects like with other methods of targeted fat reduction. For example, you may suffer side effects from hormonal treatments that are meant to help your body burn fat.
