If you follow celebrity news, you may have seen the recent episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians that aired May 22nd where Kris Jenner and her daughter, Kendall, were in a doctor’s office for CoolSculpting®. While it wasn’t Kendall who was being treated, it did appear that her mother/manager, Kris, was being treated along with a friend.
If you are unfamiliar with CoolSculpting®, it’s an FDA-cleared procedure designed to reduce body fat by using the cold to target and kill the stubborn fat cells that cause belly fat or love handles. While it’s no substitute for liposuction and was never designed for major weight loss, it’s great for people who are already maintaining a steady weight but want to target the areas that are resistant to diet and exercise. It is appealing to many because it is non-invasive and requires no needles or downtime. And while, thanks to the Kardashians, CoolSculpting® is being newly discovered by many people, the treatment is far from new!
Many Hollywood celebrities have undergone CoolSculpting® over the last several years including Super Model, Molly Sims. For Molly, CoolSculpting® was a solution to help her loose stubborn fat after having her baby. Kim Kardashian, like Molly Sims made headlines back in December when, in an attempt to lose weight after having her second baby, she visited a cosmetic surgeon. While Kim knew her husband would never have tolerated her undergoing liposuction, she sought CoolSculpting® as a great, non-invasive alternative. Anyone who knows anything about liposuction understands that it’s not a gentle procedure. During liposuction, the surgeon uses a suction tube to quite literally suck the fat out from under your skin through small incisions. Some surgeons also will insert a metal rod that delivers an ultrasound in order to break up the fat and make removal easier. Not only is the procedure incredibly invasive, the post-procedure pain, swelling, bruising and numbness can last for weeks. Liposuction is also risky. Not only because of the need for anesthesia, which always carries a risk, but also because the surgeon could potentially damage an organ. There’s also the risk of infection and bleeding. And if that isn’t enough, you have to be careful and choose your surgeon wisely since liposuction can actually make the area look worse. Kim and Kris aren’t the only CoolSculpting® fans either. Khloe, who has been very adamant that she hasn’t had any plastic surgery, openly admits that she has had CoolSculpting® treatments. That said… you don’t have to be a celebrity to benefit from CoolSculpting®! At affordable prices, CoolSculpting® is perfect for anyone looking to slim down!
Good candidates are those who are at or close to their ideal body weight but have stubborn fat cells on the abdomen, flank (fat we commonly refer to as "love handles"), thighs or chin. While liposuction is a more complete fat reduction treatment that can offer immediate results, it’s also far more invasive… and not everyone wants to undergo a surgical procedure! CoolSculpting®, on the other hand, provides great results with zero downtime. And while the results aren’t immediate, this amazing treatment has been proven to work!
