Thread: Coolsculpting anyone?

  1. #1

    Default Coolsculpting anyone?

    I am considering this - not for weightloss, but to take a little off my thighs which are always larger and not in proportion regardless of my weight. Has anyone had it done?
    They say it's permanent - but say you put on weight, where does it go if it can't go where the fat cells have been removed from, do you get fat in other areas?

    It's non invasive liposuction - no surgery. It uses a machine that basically freezes the fat cells. The results aren't instant like lipo - it takes a few months for the body to absorb the dead fat cells.

    Here's what i know about dead fat cells: fat necrosis is sometimes an unwanted result of surgery (especially reconstruction). The area becomes hot & red & hard - sometimes it shrinks but sometimes you can also end up with a hard scar or lump in that spot (which might or might not go away). If its caused by loss of circulation, the tissue death can progress to gangrene.

    I would be pretty cautious because of the potential for scarring. Also, how do they make sure they don't accidentally "freeze" the wrong tissue - like skin or blood vessels? How is it regulated?

    Look up reviews online. There's a site with lots of reviews, mainly from America and they're really mixed.
