Let’s Break Down the Top Benefits of CoolSculpting


Everyone wants to have a toned, shapely physique. Achieving that kind of figure isn’t always easy, and in some cases even rigorous diet and nutrition prove insufficient. That’s why more and more patients are turning to CoolSculpting, a breakthrough in body contouring and fat removal.

A few CoolSculpting sessions can help you achieve the trim, healthy body you have been longing for, without the need for any kind of surgical intervention. As you consider whether this treatment is right for you, we welcome you to consider the many different benefits of CoolSculpting.

What are the Benefits of CoolSculpting?

When you meet with us for your initial consultation, we’ll be more than happy to talk with you about the different advantages of this treatment and to help you determine whether CoolSculpting is the best way for you to achieve your desired outcomes.

In the meantime, here’s a summary of some of the key benefits of CoolSculpting.

1) CoolSculpting helps you eliminate stubborn deposits of fat.

Are there places on your body where you just can’t seem to lose weight, even with vigorous exercise and sound nutrition? If so, CoolSculpting may be right for you. CoolSculpting targets unwanted fat cells, freezing and ultimately killing them. These fat cells are then eliminated from your body as natural waste. After a few treatment sessions, CoolSculpting can result in a significant reduction of fat and flab.

2) CoolSculpting doesn’t require any surgical intervention.

One reason why patients gravitate toward CoolSculpting is that it delivers results without the need for surgery. That means no anesthesia and no incisions. It also means that you do not have to worry about any of the risks associated with surgery. Finally, CoolSculpting does not require any kind of downtime. In fact, some patients come in to have CoolSculpting treatments on their lunch break and immediately return to work, school, or their other regular activities.

3) CoolSculpting is a safe way to gain a more contoured physique.

CoolSculpting is approved by the FDA, which means that it’s been carefully assessed for general safety. There are very few risks associated with the procedure, and most patients have no side effects or symptoms whatsoever. If you do have any questions about the safety of CoolSculpting, or about your eligibility for treatment, we welcome you to schedule a consultation with one of our providers.

4) CoolSculpting sessions are quick and easy.

When you join us for CoolSculpting, you’ll find that the sessions are very relaxing. While you’ll definitely experience a “chill” sensation, CoolSculpting does not cause any pain or serious discomfort. In fact, some patients actually nap during their treatment, while others read or scroll through their phones. The length of the session varies depending on the area being treated, but most of the time a CoolSculpting session lasts no more than 15 to 30 minutes.

5) CoolSculpting can be used all over your body.

You can receive CoolSculpting treatment almost anywhere you have stubborn deposits of fat or flab. Some of the most common areas for CoolSculpting treatment include the belly, thighs, flanks, and upper arms. You can also seek CoolSculpting to reduce the appearance of a “double chin.”

6) With CoolSculpting, you can see visible results in mere weeks.

While CoolSculpting doesn’t produce results right away, patients tend to see the outcomes they want relatively quickly. With the right treatment plan, you should start to see the contoured physique you’re hoping for in just two to three months.

7) CoolSculpting can provide long-lasting results.

Patients often ask whether the results of CoolSculpting are permanent. They are in the sense that CoolSculpting permanently destroys fat cells, and those fat cells cannot grow back. It is possible to develop new fat cells, but with some basic nutrition and regular exercise, you can maintain your CoolSculpting results indefinitely.

8) CoolSculpting can be an alternative to other, more invasive body contouring methods.

CoolSculpting can be a good way to achieve body contouring results without the need for liposuction or a tummy tuck. While both of these procedures are highly effective, they also require surgical intervention and an extended recovery time. If you’re reluctant to be out of commission for long, or simply don’t relish the idea of having surgery performed, CoolSculpting may be a great alternative.

Is CoolSculpting Right for Everyone?

While there are clearly a number of benefits to CoolSculpting, it’s important to note that this procedure may not be right for every patient.

We meet with some patients who are looking to lose unwanted fat and flab all over their bodies. While CoolSculpting works well for targeted body contouring, those seeking more comprehensive results may want to consider liposuction instead.

Additionally, we recommend CoolSculpting primarily for patients who have achieved a reasonably healthy, sustainable body weight, and who have overall healthy lifestyles. With any questions about your eligibility for treatment, we welcome you to set up a consultation with Charlotte Plastic Surgery.

What are the Alternatives to CoolSculpting?

There is really nothing quite like CoolSculpting, but, there are some additional treatments that may be considered as alternatives.

  • Liposuction. For those who are seeking more extensive results, liposuction is a surgical technique that involves unwanted fat cells literally being vacuumed from the body.
  • Tummy tuck. A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that involves your abdominal muscles being pulled taut, with excess fat removed. This procedure is often combined with liposuction for best results.
  • CoolTone. CoolTone is a procedure that was developed by the same people who invented CoolSculpting. It’s focused less on body contouring and more on the development of muscle.

With questions about any of these procedures, we’d love to hear from you. Charlotte Plastic Surgery is a proud provider of CoolSculpting, and we are always happy to extol its benefits. With that said, our ultimate goal is to help patients identify the treatments best suited to their needs and goals.
