How To Know If Cryolipolysis Is the Best Weight Loss Solution for You

cryolipolysisCryolipolysis treatments are some of the most popular body contouring procedures on the market today, and because of this revolutionary fat freezing technology, countless people have been able to feel comfortable and confident without relying on expensive diet plans or invasive cellulite removal treatments.

With that being said, it’s important to realize that cryolipolysis body contouring procedures aren’t perfect for everyone, and it’s essential that you find a weight loss solution that works well with your body — regardless of what everyone else is doing. So what makes a good cryolipolysis candidate? Here are a few things that factor into the equation:

  1. Weight: Fat freezing treatments weren’t designed to help people lose a substantial amount of extra weight; instead, experts recommend that people consider cryolipolysis if they’re looking to lose about 10 lbs. in very specific areas. One recent study found that 86% of patients who receiving cryolipolysis treatments noticed a positive difference in their bodies (usually around 20% to 25% fat reduction with a couple treatments), but this difference was limited to the specific areas where the cold treatment was administered. Patients looking to lose a lot of weight, or lose weight in multiple regions, are often directed toward an alternative cellulite removal treatment.
  2. Lifestyle: Another important factor to consider is how healthy your lifestyle already is, and whether you’ve been trying to lose that extra weight (unsuccessfully) for a long time. The body naturally holds onto fat in certain areas, seemingly without reason, so it’s very possible to live a healthy life but still have extra fat in certain places. Cryolipolysis is minimally invasive so it isn’t necessarily a “last resort” type of weight loss treatment, but it’s also not great to keep straining your body (and bank account) by using this treatment as an alternative to exercising. Maintaining a healthy body should always be the top priority, and ultimate goal, of any weight loss plan.
  3. Patience: Cryolipolysis treatments are convenient because they have very minimal side effects and virtually no downtime needed for recovery, making this a great alternative to other invasive fat removal procedures. However, it’s important to know that it takes anywhere from two to four months for fat freezing results to appear, so the best candidates for these treatments are people who don’t mind waiting a few weeks.

As always, the best thing to do before making any decisions about weight loss is to consult your doctor, and it never hurts to consult a nutritionist or personal trainer to find out which weight loss treatment would be best for you.
