Belly fat can be incredibly hard to target, especially once you get to a certain age. No matter how hard you work out or how many calories you cut from your diet, you may still struggle with a little pooch above your waistline. Even if you are losing weight and fat from the rest of your body, you may not be able to lose it from your belly. If you are already at or close to your goal body weight, we have a solution that can help you target stubborn fat that has been resistant to diet and exercise alone. In our office, we may choose CoolSculpting® to target this resistant fat to get rid of it permanently.
CoolSculpting® is a safe, non-invasive treatment approved by the FDA for treating stubborn fat that sits below the surface of the skin. It uses very cold temperatures to freeze the fat cells and crystallize them, causing them to die and be removed from the body naturally. This process is called cryolipolysis and has actually been researched since the 1970s when Harvard researchers first started looking into the possibility of using low temperatures to target fat cells. Today, cryolipolysis is used for CoolSculpting® around the world on many areas of the body, although the belly is one of the most popular treatment areas.
When you come in for your initial consultation, we will help you determine exactly what area of your body you will need to target. In many cases, one or two simple treatments will be all that you need to look slimmer in that area and to decrease your waist circumference. Your treatment will be customized based on your wants and needs.
After your belly treatment is over, you will immediately be able to return to your regular activities. In time, you’ll start to notice the results of the treatment. The gradual nature of the results helps them to look natural.
It is possible to slim down even if your belly fat has proven to be resistant to diet and exercise.
