10 Sep Avoid Flabby Skin with CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is considered a non-surgical liposuction alternative because both treatments permanently* remove small areas of unwanted fat. Spectrum Dermatology offers only the safest, most effective procedures—which is part of the reason both Drs. Thosani and Kim were voted Top Doc 2018. However, there are big differences when it comes to the lasting effects of these procedures, and one of the most contrasting is the risk of flabby skin.
When skin is stretched out, from weight gain, pregnancy, or natural maturation to adulthood, stretch marks are common. However, flabby skin that looks crepe-like is also common when that weight is lost. This is a big risk for those who lose fat quickly. Crash diets, weight loss surgeries like gastric bypass, and even liposuction can lead to unwanted flabby skin. The only way to “fix” flabby skin is by regaining the weight or surgery to remove the skin. Surgeries mean lasting scars.
However, when fat is permanently removed, such as through liposuction or CoolSculpting, there is no gaining it back. The only way weight can be regained in that area is if a person gains so much weight nearby, fat “spreads” to that area. Every person is born with a certain number of fat cells and distribution.
Liposuction works by immediately removing fat from key areas. This can “shock” the body and lead to flabby skin. However, CoolSculpting works by freezing away the fat. It is slowly dissolved into the body and safely eliminated over weeks and months. A slow, permanent removal of fat eases the skin into the new shape which drastically reduces the odds of flabby skin.

Every person also has different amounts of collagen and elastin in the body. These are what keep skin looking young, and what prevents flabby skin. However, collagen and elastin dwindle with age. Some people also simply have less of these elements than others.
