Fat Reduction vs Weight Loss


It may be confusing to hear that reducing fat is not the same as losing weight. It’s all about what happens to fat CELLS. The number of fat cells in our bodies typically becomes a fixed number sometime in our teenage years. Losing or gaining weight generally does not increase or decrease the number of fat cells. Instead, it changes the size of fat cells.

Those stubborn fat bulges start to disappear, leaving a more sculpted you.
After your CoolSculpting treatment, you may not weigh less, but you’ll look thinner. And, your clothes will fit better, feel better, and look better!

How Your Body Processes Fat From Food

The fat you eat in food…

…travels through your digestive system…

…and then to the liver. Processed fat is the energy source for your body. Excess fat is stored in fat cells.

How Your Body Processes Fat Cells After CoolSculpting Treatment

Your body has a fixed number of fat cells that get bigger or smaller as you gain or lose weight.

When you have the CoolSculpting treatment, fat cells freeze and start to die off.

During the process of cell death, fat cells begin to collapse.

Over the weeks following your procedure, other cells consume the dead fat cells, which are naturally processed and eliminated from the body.

The Fat Cells Are Gone

The CoolSculpting procedure will NOT help you lose weight. However, if you want to lose unwanted fat and look slimmer in your clothes, then CoolSculpting may be right for you.
