If you have been following the exciting development of CoolSculpting, then you probably know by now, that the use of cooling technology destroys fat cells. Like many people, maybe you are wondering what happens to the dead fat cells.
The chilling device used for CoolSculpting kills the fat cells by a process is called cryolipolysis, the patented name for the Zeltiq procedure, also known as CoolSculpting. “Cryo” meaning cold and “lipolysis” meaning the breakdown of triglycerides into free fatty acids within the cells.
Other treatments that “melt fat” have some doctors concerned that the lymphatic system can’t process large amounts of fat that are introduced quickly. Since CoolSculpting works at a slow rate, taking up to several weeks, there is no need for concern. The body digests dead fat cells and cleans them through the lymphatic system, and is expelled through the urine.
Results are long lasting, and tests prove there is not an increase in the blood lipids or blood cholesterol.
Dr. Delgado reminds his patients not to look at CoolSculpting as a weight loss solution. CoolSculpting is designed to treat pockets of fat that don’t respond to diet or exercise. The main areas of treatment for men and women would be; the abdomen and love handles. Women like to have the décolleté, and the upper arms treated, and for men with pseudo-gynecomastia have great results with the reduction of fat from their chest. For the removal of large volumes of fat, conventional liposuction would be a better solution.
A consultation with Dr. Delgado, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, practicing in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1988, is highly recommended to help determine what procedure you might consider. For more information or to make an appointment, call (415 898-4161) or email (email@example.com).
