1.Are you a good candidate? There are 2 types of fat, visceral and subcutaneous. Visceral fat is body fat stored around organs within the abdominal cavity, like the liver, intestines, pancreas, and kidneys. Visceral fat cannot be treated by liposuction or CoolSculpting, only diet, and exercise. Subcutaneous fat lies directly under the skin and can be removed by liposuction or CoolSculpting. Patient selection is key and best determined by a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
2. When looking for a CoolSculpting provider, look at CoolSculpting’s website for a licensed practice. Be aware that CoolSculpting machines can be purchased on eBay for people who haven’t had proper training.
3. Confirm that your CoolSculpting specialist was trained by CoolSculpting University (also known as Cool U)and awarded certification at completion, and is supervised by the physician.
4. Check that the facility you choose has the attachments for the CoolSculpting machine for the areas you wish to have treated; there are many applicators available that are designed for specific body areas.
5. Lastly, be aware that most providers offer discounts when more than one area is to be treated. Additionally, Dr. Miguel Delgado, M.D. has stated he will match quotes by other physician’s offices in Marin County.
