Question: Does fat return to other areas of the body after a CoolSculpting® treatment?

Answer: Fat gain after CoolSculpting® can occur but not to treated area. The fat cells that get “crystallized” with Coolsculpting® die and get flushed out of your body and are permanently eliminated. If you gain weight, other fat cells around your body can expand. This expansion is not from the fat cells that were treated. It has been documented that 20 -25% of the fat cells in a treated area are permanently eliminated during a CoolSculpting® treatment. Coolsculpting® is excellent for reducing a bulge (like a bra line bulge or muffin top) that is diet/exercise resistant. It does not replace diet and exercise but it has helped many men and women achieve their desired shape.
