Am I a Good Candidate for Coolsculpting?
CoolSculpting is effective on both men and women. If you are an adult above 18 years of age and have a body weight that is within 30 lbs of your ideal body weight, you are a good candidate. If you meet these conditions and have excess fat around your abdomen, flank, thighs, and/or arms, CoolSculpting is an ideal choice for getting rid of that bulge!
To achieve best results from your CoolSculpting in Long Island, your body weight should have ideally been stable for at least six months before the procedure.
Which is better: Liposuction or CoolSculpting?
Liposuction used to be the only choice to get rid of unwanted extra fat in different areas of the body. The procedure usually involves local sedation and sometimes general anesthesia that might require a longer stay at the facility. In this procedure, a cannula is inserted into the area from where the fat has to be removed and heat or energy is applied through ultrasound, laser, or manual pressure to break up fat. The broken or liquefied fat is suctioned out through the cannula. Swelling or bruising in the areas treated could take a longer time to heal. As with any invasive technique, the risks can include blood clot formation, bleeding, infection, fluid build-up, and/or skin darkening.
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure that does not involve needles or anesthesia. There is no risk of bleeding or clot formation and there is no downtime! There is no tissue damage or skin discoloration in the area treated.
Is CoolSculpting Better than Diet and Excercise?
Exercise and a healthy diet are absolutely essential no matter what procedure you choose! CoolSculpting is not a replacement for a balanced diet and exercise but rather complements it perfectly. Sometimes, even with rigorous exercise and healthy eating, some stubborn pockets of fat refuse to budge. Dieting or exercising are useful in shrinking the fat cells by size but do not reduce the number of fat cells. The excess fat percentage in the body is known to be an independent risk factor for many chronic illnesses!
CoolSculpting helps you fast-track the removal of extra fat and aids in your overall efforts to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Because CoolSculpting destroys fat cells, there is a reduction in the number of fat cells, which means a healthier body composition along with a shapely contour!
