Schedule Your Free CoolSculpting Consultation in Richmond


How much fat can I lose after CoolSculpting?Accumulation of unwanted fat deposits in certain areas of the body is a common problem for both women and men. CoolSculpting is a safe, outstanding, and sagacious non-invasive procedure to get rid of excess fat tissue for people who want to avoid plastic surgery.

During the initial consultation, the CoolSculpting expert will explain all about the procedure and inform the patient about how much fat they may expect to lose after the complete course of treatment. They will assess the patient’s current condition of fat pockets and their specific location and size in order to estimate the amount fat loss possible.

The Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin, provides CoolSculpting to patients in Richmond, Virginia, and surrounding communities across the horizon in this part of the northeast.

Amount of Fat Loss

The treatment provider will focus on areas where stubborn fat tissue deposits are present, which are resistant to diet and exercise. The skin in the area should have a reasonable amount of elasticity in order to create desirable aesthetic outcomes.

Each patient will have a different amount of fat loss, depending on factors such as fat deposit location, the patient’s tendency to gain or lose fat, the extent of treatment performed, and the skill of the provider.

Unlike plastic surgery, the fat reduction will occur gradually with CoolSculpting. Most patients will typically achieve a fat loss in the range of 20 to 30 percent in the treated sites. Noticeable fat reduction may occur in a matter of weeks in some patients, but the majority of patients will be able to achieve the desired level of fat loss in about three months. Results are healthier and more natural looking due to gradual fat reduction with CoolSculpting.

Maximizing Fat Loss

The patient should not depend on CoolSculpting alone to achieve maximum fat loss. They should be conscious about maintaining body weight throughout the course of the treatment and afterwards. Body contouring results can be compromised if the patient gains weight while the treatment sessions are in progress.

Patients should know that Coolsculpting is not a weight loss procedure, and they should maintain a healthy weight with a balanced diet and regular exercise. A healthy lifestyle and a good fitness regimen will enable the patient to enjoy the results of CoolSculpting for an extended period of time.

Permanent Removal of Fat Cells

CoolSculpting is designed to freeze the fat cells and cause their permanent destruction. The frozen cells will be processed and removed from the body through the natural metabolic process, leaving behind a sculpted shape in the treated sites. Adults do not produce new fat cells, and the fat cells once eliminated will not come back. In other words, the fat loss with CoolSculpting will be permanent.

However, weight gain can still take place, which will cause the expansion of the remaining fat cells. Therefore, if the body weight increases, it will lead to an increase in the size of the remaining fat cells. Profound and focused plastic surgeons at the Virginia Institute receive patients from Richmond, Virginia, and nearby areas across the region.
