Many people want to lose abdominal fat, but are hesitant about undergoing liposuction. Whether you want to reduce only minor areas of excess fat, such as the love handles, or don’t have the time needed for recovery, liposuction might not be the right option. If you are healthy, close to your ideal weight, and have unwanted fat on the abdomen, back, or flanks, CoolSculpting by ZELTIQ may be the ideal solution. CoolSculpting is a non-surgical liposuction alternative that can reduce the fat layer by an average of 20%.1
This non-invasive procedure requires no needles, incisions, anesthesia, or downtime. The CoolSculpting procedure typically lasts 1 to 3 hours. Most patients relax during their treatment, reading, listening to music, or even sleeping. In general, patients can resume their regularly routine – even returning to work or exercising – on the same day as the procedure. If this option resembles what you’re seeking, you may be a candidate for CoolSculpting.
