Who Is a Good Candidate For CoolSculpting?

Who Is a Good Candidate For CoolSculpting?

Let’s have a look at who would be a good candidate for Coolsculpting procedure

1. The ideal candidate for Coolsculpting would be someone who is generally in good shape, but has a few unwanted bulges in rather obtrusive places, and folks, we are talking here about love handles, man boobs and tummy bulges.

2. A good candidate for Coolsculpting treatment, would be someone who had an absolute horror of invasive surgery, like a tummy tuck.

3. The ideal candidate would also not be obese. Obese people would have to consider an extremely invasive procedure, like a gastric bypass, to achieve weight loss. Our ideal candidate would be within three to ten kilograms of their ideal weight.

4. They would also, ideally, be go-getters, who would be very time conscious, and who wouldn’t want to have a procedure with too much downtime.

5. The procedure accomplishes subtle, natural looking results and not drastic alteration, so the procedure would be ideal for someone who is not contemplating surgery, and who is also averse to using drugs.

6. Liposuction just doesn’t “feel” right for our ideal candidate.

This treatment is ideal for someone who has a healthy lifestyle, but nevertheless has pockets of stubborn fat that just won’t go away with diet and exercise. Get rid of the fat cells for good by maintaining your healthy lifestyle after Coolsculpting.

Who is not a good candidate for Coolsculpting

  • If you are expecting the pitter-patter of tiny feet, you definitely will not be a good candidate for Coolsculpting.
  • If you have an implanted medical device like a pacemaker, you would also not be a good candidate.
  • Hepatitis C and Reynaud’s Disease would also rule you out as a good candidate for Coolsculpting.
  • If you have had surgery recently in the area that you would like treated, or, if you suffer from cold sensitivities, it would be better not contemplating this procedure.

As you can see, Coolsculpting is not for everyone. It would depend very much on what kind of physical condition you are in, and exactly what kind of result you are trying to achieve. It is not a shortcut to rapid and drastic weight loss, and cannot be performed on obese people. It’s also not for the ladies who are preparing for an addition to the family. It is, however, for someone who requires a non obtrusive, more natural looking change. It is a relatively quick procedure with little or no recovery time needed, which suits people with an active, on the go lifestyle.
