Understanding Fat Reduction

Tag Archives: Understanding

Exercise and healthy eating cannot change the way a person’s body stores fat. The human body commonly stores fat in one specific region which is unresponsive to fat

reduction techniques such as diet and exercise. Unfortunately, in many cases, exercise cannot address the problem of fat cells.

Weight reduction or weight gain does not make an impact as fat cells cannot be eliminated but only increase or decrease in volume. This means that when a person puts on weight, the fat cells become enlarged, and these cells shrink upon weight reduction.

Fat cells do not get eliminated, and as a result, we have what is known as “stubborn fat.” Consequently, an individual can reduce weight but this will not alter the fact that they have more fat cells in their love handles (flanks), thighs, abdomen, and other areas.

This is where CoolSculpting enters as a reliable non-surgical technique that can freeze the fat cells and eliminate them effectively. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides CoolSculpting to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other towns and cities in this region of The Golden State.


CoolSculpting is based on the cryolipolysis technology which can freeze the fat cells in a particular area without damage to the surrounding healthy tissue. Fat cells respond quickly to cold temperatures, and will get frozen with CoolSculpting process, while the healthy surrounding cells remain unaffected.

The frozen fat cells will eventually disintegrate, and the patient will be able to lose fat in the treated sites. This elimination of fat cells leads to a sculpted and slimmer figure.

A person can still gain weight after CoolSculpting, which depends on their diet, lifestyle, and personal health. However, the difference is that the now additional weight gain will be distributed throughout the body in a more even manner instead of accumulating in the treated site.

CoolSculpting removes fat cells in the treatment area by freezing these cells permanently. In the next many weeks, the body will process the frozen fat cells naturally removing them for good.

CoolSculpting means no more stubborn fat! The FDA has cleared the CoolSculpting procedure for fat reduction. The procedure is non-invasive, safe and effective with no requirement for anesthesia.

Permanent Outcomes

CoolSculpting has been clinically proven to create permanent outcomes. When the fat cells in the treatment area are frozen using the cryolipolysis technology, they die. The natural response of the body is to eliminate these dead cells through its own process of removal.

The results are not temporary as the fat cells permanently destroyed and removed from the body. These fat cells are then gone for good. Any site that undergoes treatment will have a permanent decrease in the number of fat cells. However, one question still remains: Will this process help the patient attain a slimmer body?

CoolSculpting removes some fat cells from the body permanently which means that these cells cannot be restored. But the fat cells that remain can still become larger if the patient puts on weight. If the patient is not careful about weight management, the remaining fat cells could grow more voluminous and give them a more bulky body shape.  

Regardless, CoolSculpting treatments do cause a reduction in the number of fat cells. This means that the patient will still be more slender than if they had not received this treatment.
