28 Dec What Happens if I Gain Weight After CoolSculpting?
When fat is removed, either through CoolSculpting or liposuction, it’s gone forever. CoolSculpting is a non-invasive option that targets and freezes away fat for good and is one of the most requested procedures at Spectrum Dermatology. Clients are excited about the idea of permanently banishing fat, but what happens if you gain weight after CoolSculpting?
Currently, CoolSculpting and liposuction are the only ways to remove fat permanently. Dieting, exercising, and even fat-loss procedures such as gastric bypass surgery only allow you to shrink fat cells, meaning these cells are still there. Fat cells can shrink or grow, but when they are permanently removed there is never a risk of them returning. However, that doesn’t mean a person can’t gain weight.
If a person gains weight after CoolSculpting, they will likely never have the same shape or volume in the CoolSculpted area again. The fat simply isn’t there. However, extreme weight gain can cause nearby fat cells to “spread” into the vacant areas left by CoolSculpting. If you get CoolSculpting on your stomach, for example, fat cells in the surrounding areas may spread to the stomach with weight gain.
In most instances, this won’t result in a strange or misshapen look. However, there is a slight risk. After all, when you permanently alter the distribution of fat, there are always some associated risks. The best way to minimize these risks is to trust a reputable CoolSculpting clinic. Skilled experts can help ensure patients have not only a safe and comfortable CoolSculpting experience but can offer a natural shape no matter what future shifts a body may undergo.
