Now, it’s important to know that Coolsculpting is not a weight loss procedure. Many say that having a smoother belly makes them feel more confident. Coolsculpting eliminates some of those stubborn fat cells covering the belly, and helps lower the bulge that’s kept your favorite pants stored in the back of your closet.

Who’s a Candidate For Coolsculpting for Belly?

for every FDA-cleared body area. However, not everyone is a good candidate for the procedure. This is the real reason we solicit potential clients to make an appointment. You may not know they are a good candidate until the doctor sees you to discuss your goals.

A good candidate qualified for a Coolsculpting for belly procedure is someone close to their ideal body weight, and strives to get rid of resisting fat. Candidates must have lived a healthy lifestyle complete with adequate exercise and a reasonable diet. They shouldn’t just consider the act as a temporary solution to lose weight but as an aid to an ongoing lifestyle.

Belly Fat Removal Without Surgery

Each treatment area offers different criteria for specific areas. We anticipate “squeezable” fat in the abdominal region from the Coolsculpting belly candidate. — like when a personal coach or fitness consultant quantifies their clients with calipers to check the overall body fat percentage.

If you can physically pinch fat between your fingers Coolsculpting may be effect at reducing the type of fat on your belly. If the fat on your belly is harder, stronger and less mobile, you may not be a good candidate for the abdominal treatment area.

The major types of fat in the body:

  • Visceral
  • Subcutaneous

Visceral Fat

Visceral fat resides deep in the body and connects around the internal organs. Seen as the most harmful type of fat for a person,particularly abdominal region, it drives high risk for strokes, heart diseases, diabetes, and dementia. This type of fat is stronger, harder and commonly forms (at least in part) the famous “beer gut”.

Subcutaneous Fat

The subcutaneous fat builds below the surface of the skin. The Coolsculpting procedure is most effective at reducing this soft and “squeezable” type of fat.

Other Factors in Coolsculpting for the Belly

One of the main factors is the dilemma of diastasis recti for women, or the gap between the abdominal muscles in the middle of the belly. This commonly occurs after pregnancy and results in a belly “pooch.”

Coolsculpting does not typically curb diastasis recti, as it is considered a muscle rather than a fat problem.

This doesn’t mean that women with diastasis recti can never experience Coolsculpting for belly, but they’re really awesome candidates for a tummy tuck because the muscles need to be mend before the “pooch” can go away.

Another possible post-pregnancy issue that makes an individual unsuitable candidate for Coolsculpting for belly is more skin laxity. Sometimes, the muscles go back into the reallocation and exercise helps tone them back up, but loose skin remains. Again, a tummy tuck is approved for this condition.

And finally, if the squeezable fat region is measured at more than three inches, Coolsculpting won’t produce the required results. In this case, we’d typically approve weight loss or liposuction.

Why Excess Belly Fat is Considered More Harmful

Excess abdominal fat is one of the unhealthiest fat reasons due to the associated high risks.. Waistlines greater than 35 inches for women, and 40 inches for men are factors that increase the risk for heart disease, diabetes, and stroke.

Medical reports vary on whether or not  subcutaneous (frozen by Coolsculpting) is considered less harmful than visceral fat.

Furthermore, Director of the Boston Nutrition and Obesity Research Center at Boston University and lecturer, Dr. Susan Fried revealed, “emerging evidence” that subcutaneous fat cells on the abdomen create as much risk/danger as visceral fat cells.

Coolsculpting freezes and destroys the subcutaneous fat cells on your abdomen, but it won’t prevent the remaining cells from increasing, nor does it stop the visceral fat underneath from expanding. Unfortunately, Coolsculpting does not destroy all subcutaneous fat cells as there will always be some left.

In other words, it’s necessary for all Coolsculpting candidates to maintain a healthy lifestyle. This is why we support and advise a low-calorie diet and continuous exercise to maintain the procedure. This enables clients to continuously see the results of their Coolsculpting procedure.

Consultation on Coolsculpting the Belly

Coolsculpting Belly Cost/Price

The cost of Coolsculpting for belly is the biggest question on our potential clients’ minds and we undoubtedly understand why. Choosing to undergo the Coolsculpting procedure isn’t as easy as wanting a flatter belly, and for many, the cost is a major factor in their decision-making process. Clients’ different sets of challenges require physical assessment to see the treatment area and discuss how much of the fat you intend to freeze. This makes it impossible to give an accurate estimate for Coolsculpting the belly over the phone.
