The common goal of many people is to eliminate their excess abdominal fat. It is necessary to maintain optimum body mass because fat storage around the belly is unhealthy. Belly fat is of two kinds – visceral and subcutaneous. The former can increase the risk of diabetes, metabolic syndrome, heart issues, and even cancer. Generally, the high percentage of the latter kind is associated with a high visceral fat level, so it increases health issue risks.
Factors contributing to belly fat development
- Sugary beverages and food
- Trans fat in packaged & baked foods
- Sedentary lifestyle
- Low protein diet
- Wrong gut bacteria
- Stress & cortisol
- Low fiber diet
- Insufficient sleep
- Poor metabolism

What is CoolSculpting?
It is a non-invasive fat removal treatment with zero downtime. The patients feel only a cooling sensation in their sessions. It is a safe alternative for traditional liposuction because it is not just non-surgical but reduces fat consistently. In liposuction, the fat is sucked physically causing uneven, lumpy results but this treatment has broader application, so fat is reduced evenly across the treatment zone.
How does the CoolSculpting treatment work?
You will have to wear loose clothes. The area to be targeted will be marked. CoolSculpting applicators produce a little sucking sensation. The fat cells are frozen and broken down. The freezing temperature numbs the stomach. The other cells will not respond to the coolness like the fat cells. Skin tissues are also not damaged, so you can get to work after an hour of the treatment. The fat cells that broke down will get flushed out from your body within 4 to 6 months. You will notice a 25% fat reduction around your abdomen.
The fat cells are unable to renew or separate, so once destroyed they are gone. The fat reduction treatment result is permanent. The results will be noticed six to eight weeks after the final session. The sessions you will need depend on your goals. If more area needs treatment, then there is lots of fat to reduce. The professionals will help you determine the number of sessions you will need.
CoolSculpting even works for other body parts like –
- Banana roll
- Below the chin
- Upper arms
- Bra fat
- Below the jawline
It is a great treatment option for fat areas that don’t respond to exercise and diet.
How to maintain shape post-treatment?
To maintain the fat reduction results after CoolSculpting treatment, you need to make some lifestyle changes. Change diet and stay away from a sedentary lifestyle. Be active daily to help the body flush the dead fat cells. However, the loose skin that developed will need lifting because the treatment does not tighten loose skin.
