You may not be struggling to lose weight, but still may have issues with fat loss in certain areas of your back. If this sounds like you, then a body contouring treatment that focuses on fat removal and non-surgical fat reduction may be the solution you’re looking for.
CoolSculpting Procedure for Back Fat
When it comes to firming up and toning, some areas of the body seem to react faster than others towards diet and exercise. Even when weight loss has occurred, what is commonly found is that individual pockets of fat can remain. This is typical on areas that known to retain fat deposits, such as the love handles and belly fat on the waist, but also areas such as the back. Both the upper back and lower back can retain fat in these areas.
One of our preferred non-invasive treatments for back fat and other body fat issues is CoolSculpting. This treatment works for men and women, via using a fat-freezing technique to help remove fat cells from the body. The technical name for fat freezing is cryolipolysis. This is an FDA approved treatment and a safe method for reducing fat on the body.
The way CoolSculpting works is that an applicator is placed on the body in the area where the treatment is required. The skin is then cooled down to the point where the fat cells are destroyed. When you freeze fat in this way the body’s own natural process removes these dead fat cells from the body over time.
After a few weeks to a month you should see visible results from the treatment and the good news is that CoolSculpting can continue to work for up to six months afterwards. Once the fat has been removed from the body, it won’t return automatically, but you will need to maintain a healthy lifestyle if you wish to keep the results, as you would need to if you had been on a traditional diet.
One of the main benefits of CoolSculpting is that you don’t need liposuction or plastic surgery to see improvements. CoolSculpting is a non-surgical fat reduction treatment that can work well where there are instances of stubborn fat. For those individuals with banana rolls and fat bulges on the back, CoolSculpting can be used to quickly treat these areas.
Who Can Have CoolSculpting treatments for back fat?
A good candidate for CoolSculpting is someone who does not have too much fat located in the treatment area. Since CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure that requires no down time, individuals are free to resume their normal activity straight after the treatment. Typically side effects from the procedure are fairly limited.
When undergoing the treatment you may feel a little pain or stinging and straight after there may be some minor swelling and redness in the area where the applicator has been placed. In these instances recovery time should still be quick, but each individual case can differ. In all cases it is best to discuss with Dr. Green what your potential options may be and what will work best for you.
