Losing fat and losing weight are NOT the same thing. It comes down to what actually happens to the fat cells in each process.

Your body naturally retains about the same amount of fat cells throughout your adult life. This number typically solidifies around your teenage years. When you lose weight, you maintain the same number of fat cells–they just get smaller, slimming down your appearance. When you gain weight, fat cells get bigger–and so do you. Weight loss does not mean you are losing actual fat cells–just that you are changing the size of them. This makes it easy to regain the weight. While it is possible to gain weight after a body sculpting procedure, many of our patients are even more motivated to take care of themselves after seeing such spectacular results!

With both the SculpSure and CoolSculpting procedures, the number of fat cells in the treated area is actually reduced. Both use thermo-treatment methods to kill fat cells (using extreme heat or cold). The cells are then naturally processed and eliminated from the body over a period of time. This is a great way to get rid of stubborn fat in unwanted areas! Both procedures can get rid of 20-25% of the fat cells in the treated area, leaving you looking lean and ready for anything. These procedures are excellent for those who are within about 30 pounds (13.6 kilos) of their ideal weight, but who have stubborn bulges in their abdomen, flanks (love handles), or even chin areas.
