CoolSculpting: Try Something New This Year and Live in the Body You Desire

Leading a healthy lifestyle that includes a balanced diet and plenty of exercise doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ll have the body you want. Many people have exercise-resistant fat. No matter how much they jog and lift weights, they can’t lose fat in problem areas. This year, try CoolSculpting at Marion OB/GYN to get the body you desire.

How CoolSculpting Works

Scientists at Harvard long ago learned that cold temperatures could freeze and eliminate fat cells. Oddly enough, they learned this by feeding popsicles to children. CoolSculpting applies a similar concept to eliminating unwanted fat cells from exercise-resistant parts of the body.

When you come to Marion OB/GYN for a CoolSculpting treatment, Dr. Foulk uses a device to freeze your fat cells. The device also uses suction to bring fat closer to the surface of your skin.

Since fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than your skin or organs, you don’t have to worry about getting hurt during the process. Instead, CoolSculpting targets fat cells so you can remove fat and look more toned.

Parts of the body commonly treated with CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting isn’t a weight-loss procedure. It’s intended to remove stubborn fat from problem areas. Some of the most commonly treated parts of the body in our office include:

Really, any part of the body that doesn’t respond to exercise can be treated. Dr. Foulk has a great deal of experience treating various body parts. During your consultation, he’ll talk to you about your options.

What to expect from CoolSculpting at Marion OB/GYN

When you come to Marion OB/GYN for CoolSculpting, you can expect your session to last 30 to 45 minutes. During that time, you can read a book, watch television, or play with your phone. Some people even take naps during their sessions.

Dr. Foulk will attach a small device to the treatment area. You may experience some discomfort from the cold, but the feeling usually passes within 5 to 10 minutes.

After CoolSculpting, it takes some time for your body to eliminate the frozen fat. The time frame varies from person to person. Many of our patients say they notice results within a month. You should see the full results within 3 months.

If you get the results you want, then you may not need another round of CoolSculpting. A lot of our patients, however, get several CoolSculpting treatments. The number of sessions you get depends on your goal and how your body responds to CoolSculpting.

Maintaining the results of CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting can eliminate fat, but you have to maintain a healthy lifestyle to keep the results. After your treatment, make sure you follow a balanced diet and exercise often. If you consume more calories than you burn, then your body will store the extra energy as fat.

Unfortunately, the fat may appear in the problem area that you had treated with CoolSculpting.

If your exercise-resistant fat comes back, then you can get another CoolSculpting session at Marion OB/GYN.

Dr. Foulk likes to wait three months between sessions. Taking some time between sessions helps ensure that CoolSculpting can do its job well and lets your body recover from any stress that it might experience during your first session.
