Fat Reduction vs. Weight Loss

Fat Reduction vs. Weight LossA well-balanced diet and active lifestyle form the basis of looking and feeling good. Exercise can achieve useful and profound results, and the surgeon will always motivate patients to exercise regularly. However, there may be at least one area of “stubborn fat” that exercise cannot address.

CoolSculpting can help with such areas where food and exercise alone cannot achieve optimal outcomes, and it is a singularly effective way to lose fat in stubborn areas. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides CoolSculpting to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.

Losing Fat is Harder

Exercise and a healthy diet often cannot improve contours in the areas in which your body stores fat. In a majority of cases, stubborn fat tends to occur in one specific area. It is always there, it can lead to depression and anxiety which many people know about it. A century from now no one will be overweight unless they choose to be since there will be methods anyone could lose the fat or never allow it to appear on their bodies but this is another topic.

The number of fat cells in the body cannot be reduced by diet or exercise. The loss or gain of weight does not impact this aspect as fat cells cannot disappear with weight loss, but only their size or volume can increase or decrease. On weight gain, the fat cells become larger, while weight loss makes them shrink.

Effectively, an individual can exercise regularly and lose weight. However, this cannot change the number of fat cells in areas such as love handles (flanks), thighs, abdomen, or upper arms.

CoolSculpting Focuses on Fat Loss (Not Weight Loss)

The cryolipolysis technology forms the basis of CoolSculpting. This technology enables the treatment provider to freeze the fat cells in a particular area without harming the surrounding healthy tissue. The fat cells freeze permanently and are eliminated over a period of time, which reduces their overall number. This leads to permanent fat loss resulting in a sleeker and sculpted body.

The patient can still gain weight after a CoolSculpting procedure. The ability to maintain outcomes is dependent on the patient’s diet, health, and lifestyle. The difference with a CoolSculpting treatment is that it enables an equitable distribution of weight throughout the body, and not just the treated region.

Permanent Fat Removal

In a majority of the cases, patients can experience a total fat reduction of around 20 percent from this treatment. The outcomes will establish in approximately 3 to 4 months after a CoolSculpting procedure.

CoolSculpting device can selectively target fat cells, which eventually die out. The body permanently re-absorbs the dead fat cells. Permanent fat removal is one of the highlights of the CoolSculpting treatment. Once the fat cells are eliminated, they cannot regenerate in an adult.

However, it is essential for patients to understand that CoolSculpting is not a substitute for diet and exercise. A well-balanced diet and a good fitness regimen are vital to maintaining a slim and contoured body.

Lose Fat to Become Healthy

Weight loss can make an individual appear as a relatively smaller version of their original self. This can happen because there may be no muscle tone beneath the skin. Therefore, fat loss and gaining muscles is essential to look and feel healthy and fit. Dr. Gary Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other cities and towns in this part of The Golden State for CoolSculpting.
