It's a common misconception that weight loss and fat reduction are the same thing. They're not. When we lose weight, our fat cells become smaller but the number of fat cells remains the same. When we gain weight, those fat cells become larger again. However, CoolSculpting reduces the number of fat cells in the treated areas because the procedure actually kills the fat cells. Obviously, fat cells that are no longer there can't get bigger. With the CoolSculpting procedure, the treated fat cells are eliminated meaning they are gone for good! Whether or not you weigh less, you'll be thinner and your clothes will fit better, feel better and look better.*
Your health - in addition to your appearance - is largely reliant on a healthy diet and regular exercise. CoolSculpting® shouldn't take the place of either of these, but rather act as an aid that can help you accomplish your goals. Diet and exercise can help reduce the appearance of fat cells, but they don't permanently rid your body of them. CoolSculpting® freezes off fat cells for good, enhancing your diet and exercise, and serving as great encouragement for continuing a healthy lifestyle.

After the CoolSculpting procedure, the treated areas actually have fewer fat cells. And unlike what happens with other procedures, there's no change in fat cell distribution in untreated areas.
