What To Do After CoolSculpting® for Your Best Results

If you’ve chosen CoolSculpting to remove your stubborn fat, you probably want to make the most of your results. The first step in achieving the best, long-lasting results is choosing an experienced and skilled provider to perform the procedure. You have a role to play here, too, and there are steps you can take to optimize your CoolSculpting results.

In this post, we explain what you can do to get the most from your treatment to achieve and maintain your best results.

Maintain a Healthy Diet and Exercise Consistently

Although CoolSculpting permanently eliminates stubborn fat cells, there is the potential for remaining fat cells in the area to grow larger and impact your contours. The best way to prevent this is to consume a diet low in fat and high in protein so your body can stay lean. A consistent workout of cardio and strength training exercises also helps.

While gaining or losing a little body fat is a normal process, it’s best to avoid large weight fluctuations to preserve your CoolSculpting results. Eating healthfully and consistently working out can help you stay within your ideal weight range.

Plan Your CoolSculpting Procedure After You Have Children

It’s completely safe to get pregnant after your CoolSculpting treatment, but it may affect your results. During pregnancy, your body will gain new fat deposits, which may compromise the benefits of CoolSculpting. If you do get pregnant after CoolSculpting, plan to have a repeat procedure after giving birth.

The best time for CoolSculpting is when you are done having your children, and you have the time and energy to maintain your results.

Combine CoolSculpting With a Skin Tightening Procedure

CoolSculpting effectively reduces stubborn fat, but it can’t tighten the surface skin once the fat is removed. If you have some skin laxity, you can enhance your CoolSculpting results with a skin tightening procedure such as SkinTyte. SkinTyte’s infrared energy stimulates the body’s healing process to produce more collagen. Collagen is important because it strengthens skin and increases suppleness and elasticity.

Have Realistic Expectations About Your CoolSculpting Procedure

Having a realistic and positive mindset is half the battle, preparing yourself for the work ahead. CoolSculpting is not a weight loss procedure, and it’s possible to enlarge remaining fat cells if you don’t maintain your results. Remember that CoolSculpting is just a tool to contour your body; you still need to follow a healthy lifestyle.

At our Fort Worth practice, we help many men and women contour their bodies with CoolSculpting Elite, as you can see in these before and after photos. To discover how CoolSculpting can help you eliminate frustrating pockets of fat, request a consultation or call us at (817) 228-4315 to schedule an appointment.
