You love your new little bundle of joy – but you don’t exactly love the stubborn fat that accompanied the arrival of the newest member of your family. No matter how often you exercise or how healthy your meals, you just can’t seem to minimize the fat on your stomach, thighs, and other common areas where pregnant women gain weight.

That’s why you may be interested in CoolSculpting, a powerful non-invasive body contouring treatment that can help minimize fat that won’t respond to diet and exercise. CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared to destroy fat cells via freezing energy; this energy penetrates the dermis and crystallizes fat cells. Eventually, the fat cells are destroyed and naturally removed over a period of eight to twelve weeks. CoolSculpting is an excellent option for candidates who may not want to undergo liposuction just yet.

When it comes to post-baby body fat, it’s important to keep in mind that CoolSculpting only destroys fat cells – it cannot tighten sagging skin that may be present after pregnancy. So how do you know if CoolSculpting can help? Easy – take a look at the following signs:

  • You’re within twenty to thirty pounds of your ideal weight
  • You’re not concerned about skin sagging, as your skin is still young and firm
  • You have realistic expectations for the outcomes of CoolSculpting
  • You’re not ready for liposuction, abdominoplasty, or any other solution that involves invasive surgery

If you meet the above criteria, you may see excellent results from CoolSculpting treatments. However, if you’re worried about sagging skin or you have more fat to remove, liposuction or a tummy tuck may be a better treatment option for you.
