How long does CoolSculpting last? What happens if I gain weight following treatment?
Mature adults have a fixed number of fat cells. They can expand as you put on weight, but once they are destroyed, they can’t return. After seeing the results of their body contouring treatment, many clients actually take better care of themselves.
If you gain weight, your fat cells will grow as usual, but the treated area will just be smaller than it was originally. The best results are had by our clients who have relatively stable body weight and just want to remove the stubborn fat that naturally accumulates as we age.
This photo shows a patient who had CoolSculpting to only one side of his body (he worked for the makers of CoolSculpting). He then gained ten pounds over a period of several years. You can see how he gained weight over his total body area but the treated area remained smaller since the fat cells were permanently eliminated.
