Is CoolSculpting a Good Alternative to Surgery?

You’ve probably heard about CoolSculpting recently, whether in an advertisement on TV or on a local billboard or in a promotional spot on the radio. Yet what exactly is CoolSculpting and is it right for you?

This brief breakdown on one of the newest and hottest procedures around will introduce you to the benefits of CoolSculpting and how it can act to replace the often intrusive and painful alternative of traditional surgical methods of removing unwanted fat.

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a relatively new, FDA-approved non-invasive procedure used to target and eliminate stubborn fat on the body. It is not a “get-thin-quick” gimmick or an easy way to bypass diet and exercise in the search for a perfect body. Instead, it is a way by which medical professionals can help reduce areas of fat on the body that these traditional practices cannot achieve.

Weight loss involves merely reducing the size of fat cells on the body, while CoolSculpting – through the use of temperature-specific therapy applied to targeted areas beneath the skin – aids in the body’s natural eliminating of these cells by freezing and killing them off.

CoolSculpting vs. Surgery

Traditionally, surgery has been the only successful approach for removing fat cells from the body. Losing weight through diet and exercise can decrease the size of the cells on the body, but is ineffective at eliminating them. Because the number of fat calls on the body becomes permanently fixed during puberty, the only way doctors have been able to get rid of them has been invasive operations – until now.

Recently, the clinically proven science of Cryolipolysis has shown the effectiveness of using cold temperature therapies to freeze and kill these specific areas of fat. The fat, once frozen, dies and is eventually processed and removed from the body naturally.

CoolSculpting: The Better Choice

CoolSculpting is quickly becoming a preferred method of removing fat because it is non-invasive, it’s practically pain-free, requires no down time, and works for just about anyone. The procedures are much shorter and much less expensive than traditional operations, yet the results achieved are the same as both eliminate fat cells themselves.

There are no needles, no need for anesthesia, no knives, no down time, and no pain. CoolSculpting also offers an advanced degree of precision, as it can target very specific areas. In addition, it has been cleared as both safe and effective by the FDA, with nearly 5,500 clinical studies and 60 scientific publications supporting its effectiveness.
