Why You Should Wait to Schedule Your CoolSculpting® Treatments for Fall

Weight loss is among the most challenging and time-consuming journeys, but the results are equally as satisfying. However, it can be challenging to lose stubborn fat deposits, especially in the abdomen, thighs, flanks, back, chin, and upper arms. People find it easy to lose the first 20 to 50 pounds but difficult to lose the last five or ten pounds. That can be devastating whether you are working towards fitting in a new dress, achieving a summer body, or just getting in shape for the holidays.

Luckily, Dr. Jeffery Sweat from J. Sweat Plastic Surgery is here to help you eliminate those stubborn fat deposits using a safe CoolSculpting® procedure. It is a non-surgical procedure that helps eliminate the fat by freezing it, and it’s the only one of its kind to get FDA approval. Read on to learn more about CoolSculpting and why fall is the best time to receive treatments.

What is CoolSculpting?

Unlike other procedures like liposuction, CoolSculpting is best suited for patients nearing their target weight. Specialists use a cooling device that suctions the skin above the target area. The device then crystallizes or freezes the fat cells, which the body naturally expels.

Since it is a non-invasive procedure, it takes between 35 and 60 minutes, depending on your target area and the amount of fat being eliminated. You might experience intense cold, mild pinching, tugging, stinging, tingling, pulling, and slight cramping at the target site. There is no downtime, meaning you can return to your daily activities after the procedure. It also does not damage your skin or tissues underneath.

Many patients report seeing results one to three months after their first appointment, but you will experience more drastic results after the second appointment. Therefore, you should begin the sessions early to achieve your summer body before the season kicks in. While fat cells are non-regenerative, it is still important to maintain a proper diet and regular exercise so that weight gain in areas surrounding the treatment site do not change the desired appearance of the site.

Undergoing CoolSculpting During the Autumn Months

Experts recommend that you schedule your CoolSculpting appointments for the fall months. This eliminates any worry that the results are not ready by spring. As an added bonus, it gives you time to relax practice healthy living while results fully develop through the colder months. Plus, it gives you time to complete the session without a long waiting period.

Starting your first appointment in October or November gives you enough time to squeeze in another appointment (after the recommended one month waiting period) before the warmer months begin.

While you might notice a smoother, more toned appearance after your first procedure, the results gradually improve over the next six months. For many patients, the frozen cells are mostly eliminated during the first two months after the procedure. Therefore, the cold winter months bundled up at home give your body time to process the results, and you can surprise everyone with your new body before summer. Also, the cold weather reduces the negative effects of sun exposure on the gradual results.
