Where Does Fat Go After CoolSculpting?

Fat Cells Don’t Stand a Chance Against CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting, if you are not familiar, is a non-invasive treatment designed to remove areas of stubborn fat on the body permanently. During a CoolSculpting procedure, fatty tissue is suctioned into an applicator that cools the fat cells. The cold temperatures numb the area being treated and freeze the cells for good. This all sounds great, but many people wonder where the fat cells go after they’re frozen. Keep on reading to find out more!

Where Does the Fat Go After a CoolSculpting Treatment?

This is one of the most frequently asked questions we get from patients. CoolSculpting involves no medications, needles, or cannulas, apposed to other fat removal procedures, such as Liposuction. However, one of the similarities CoolSculpting and Liposuction have in common is that the fat leaves the body for good. Because there is no incision and the whole process of CoolSculpting is done outside of the body, many individuals wonder where the fat goes.

CoolSculpting uses a freezing process called Cryoliplysis (freezing fat), which targets and kills the treated fat cells. The process of CoolSculpting targets fat without harming or freezing any of the surrounding tissue. Once the cells have died, they are processed and removed through your lymphatic system. This happens over 3-4 months, so your body is not overwhelmed with dead fat cells. 

Will the Fat Come Back?

It’s important to note that the fat cells cannot return after CoolSculpting. We are born with a finite number of fat cells. The total number of fat cells in the body remains the same from birth until adulthood. When we lose weight, the fat cells shrink, and when we gain weight, the fat cells expand; however, they do not multiply. CoolSculpting will eliminate a portion of fat cells within a targetted area, and the fat cells are permanently reduced.

CoolSculpting vs. Liposuction

CoolSculpting vs. Liposuction

Which One is Right For You?

You spend countless hours in the gym and are eating clean, yet you still can’t seem to fit into your clothes. Does this sound familiar? If you answered yes, you’re not alone! As we age, our metabolism starts to slow down (5% every decade after we hit 40), and despite our best efforts, sometimes it seems impossible to slim down. Many individuals look into a surgical or (now) nonsurgical fat reduction procedures to reach their aesthetic goals. There are two prominent fat reduction procedures people consider, CoolSculpting and liposuction. Both remove fat, yet they’re very different experiences.

Non-Invasive vs. Invasive

CoolSculpting and liposuction essential accomplish the same goal (to remove fat), but the journey is much different. The most significant difference being that CoolSculpting is non-invasive, while liposuction is invasive. When determining which option is best, many people consider this to be the most crucial factor.

CoolSculpting is a completely non-invasive procedure that requires no downtime. CoolSculpting utilizes freezing temperatures to eliminate unwanted pockets of fat for good. Due to the treatment being non-invasive means there is no surgery involved, so no need to worry about needles, incisions, or blood.

Liposuction, on the other hand, is invasive and requires surgery. A liposuction procedure requires a cannula (hollow tube) and aspirator (suctioning device) to suction out stubborn fat. Going under the knife means you will need several days to rest and recover.

Fat Removal

When it comes to the amount of fat that can be removed from these two procedures, they differ. CoolSculpting is best for individuals who are within 30 pounds of their ideal weight and are looking to remove stubborn pockets of fat on the body. Because CoolSculpting gets rid of less fat per treatment, patients may need more than one session to get to their ideal body.

Liposuction, on the other hand, is the more aggressive treatment out of the two; thus, a larger volume of fat can be removed in a single session. This procedure is ideal for individuals who have an excessive amount of fat on their bodies.

Risk

It may be evident that because liposuction involves surgery that it is riskier. Yes, this is true; however, that does not mean there are no risks associated with CoolSculpting. Although very little (because CoolSculpting is non-invasive and nonsurgical), some patients may experience minimal side effects, such as some bruising or stinging on the treatment area.

Comparatively, liposuction has many more risks associated with it. Liposuction requires going under anesthesia, and with this comes potential health risks. Like any other surgery, there is always a risk of bleeding and infection. After the surgery, patients may experience severe bruising and inflammation (that can sometimes take months to settle).

Ditch the Stress this Holiday Season

It’s Time to Stress Less!

The Holiday season is here, and as Andy Williams would say, “It’s the most wonderful time of the year.” However, for many of us, it can also be the most stressful time of the year. With family obligations, travel plans, holiday parties, and a million other things, there’s no surprise that stress will find its way to you. We put together a list of ways for you to ditch the stress this holiday season. 

Plan, Plan, Plan

    • Planning can take as little as 5-10 minutes out of your day but has the power to make your entire day less stressful and much more productive
    • Make sure to write your to-do’s on paper – this way, you can visually see what’s realistic and what’s not.
    • Plan out your meals – when you have a million things to do, healthy eating is usually not your number one priority. Planning out your meals will take out the stress of unhealthy eating help you stay on track. 
    • Make sure to line up help for party prep and cleanup ahead of time so you can enjoy the celebrations without worrying too much (we all know things can get pretty hectic before a party). 
    • Try to plan before the stress can creep in; this will make your life a little bit easier. 

Surround Yourself With the People You Love

    • What better way to destress than with spending quality time with the ones you love most? 
    • The best thing about the holidays is that family and friends are always around, and research shows that being in the mere presence of friends and family can physically reduce stress.
    • Surrounding yourself with others offers the opportunity for social interaction, which can help take your mind off other holiday stressors. 
    • Spending time with the ones who mean the most to you is always rewarding and can help you fully decompress after a stressful day of holiday planning. 

Be ‘Realistic’

    • It’s important to set realistic expectations, do your best and let the rest go.
    • The holidays do not have to be perfect, we often put too much pressure on ourselves to be the absolute best, but that’s not what the holidays are about. 
    • Let others help you – instead of trying to do all the cooking by yourself, let others help; this will allow for a pleasant, long stress-free visit with guests. 
    • So, stop exhausting yourself to prepare the perfect holiday spread. Instead, buy that 99-cent pack of rolls if that means being able to enjoy the day.

 

Invest in YOU

    • The holiday season can be a lot for many of us and can feel like a never-ending marathon. But like any good runner, it’s important to plan your pitstops along the way to refresh and refuel. 
    • Find something that will reduce your stress, whether that be with friends and family or by yourself. Schedule a massage, take a nap, go for a run, or spend time to chill and watch tv. 
    • An easy and effective way of getting back to your pre-holiday body, is with CoolSculpting and CoolTone at BodySquad. CoolSculpting will help remove unwanted fat (for good!) and CoolTone will tone and tighten your body.

Five Tips To Help You Stay in Shape This Season

Staying in Shape During the Holidays!

The holiday season is upon us, and we know life can start to get pretty busy with family gatherings, traveling, festive outings, and much more. With all this going on, exercise and healthy eating habits can get pushed to the back burner, and many of us see our waistlines expand (even the most disciplined people). We’ve come up with a list of 5 things you can do to stay on track this holiday season. 

Stay Active

    • It can be hard to find time to go to the gym during the holiday season. However, we all know that to keep the weight off, we have to burn more calories than we consume. It’s essential to keep moving whenever you can find the time. 
    • Here are a few tips to help you stay active during the holiday season:
      1. Traveling for the holidays? If so, take advantage of the ample space in the airport; take a brisk walk through the terminal.
      2. Ditch the elevator! Whenever you have the chance, take the stairs.
      3. When you’re watching TV march or jog in place, and every time there’s a commercial break, make yourself do situps or pushups.
      4. Dance, dance, dance! Dancing is a fantastic way to get your steps in, while also having fun! 

Find a Workout Buddy

    • Motivating yourself to exercise can be tough, but when you have a buddy by your side, it can make working out a lot easier and much more fun!
    • When someone is counting on you to meet up, you’ll find that it is a lot harder to skip the gym. Having the accountability of a friend always keeps you going. 
    • Having someone to work out with makes a big difference in the quality and frequency of your exercise. Ask a friend to join you; you’ll both benefit from it!

Plan ahead

    • Start each day with a game plan; this will help you keep on track and will ease the amount of stress you may be feeling. 
    • If you can, try and work out in the morning, this will jump-start your day and make sure that you don’t get distracted later in the day by holiday parties or other fun festivities. 
    • Avoid skipping meals! Maybe you had too many sweets the night before (we’ve all been there) and want to skip breakfast. However, this is detrimental to your health and may cause overeating later on in the day. Try to plan out your meals evenly throughout the day.

Stay Hydrated

    • From crazy busy schedules to holiday cocktails, it’s essential to make sure you’re drinking enough water during the holiday season. 
    • The holiday season entails friends, family, and booze (lots and lots of booze). To combat these next-day hangovers, make sure you’re drinking enough water. For every drink you have, make sure to pair it with a glass of water. 
    • Food is also a big part of the holiday season, and no one should feel the need to restrict during this time. However, instead of reaching for your second serving of goodies, drink water first. You’ll feel fuller and be hydrated!
    • Bring your reusable water bottle to holiday functions. By doing this, you will always be hydrated! This way you’ll also know how much water you’re consuming in a day – eight glasses a day is recommended.

CoolSculpting

    • Can’t seem to lose those extra inches? It can be frustrating, but CoolSculpting can help with that!
    • CoolSculpting utilizes cooling technology to freeze fat cells while leaving the skin and surrounding tissue unharmed. 
    • For most of us, this is the busiest time of year, and it can be hard to find time to get a full workout in. One of the best things about CoolSculpting is that it’s non-invasive and requires zero downtime, so you are free to get right back to your holiday planning. 
    • If this sounds like something, you’d be interested in, you can come in to BodySquad for a free body assessment and consultation. Provide your information below and we’ll schedule your free assessment.
