What happens to the fat and how is it “eliminated” after Coolsculpting?

Q: What exactly happens to the fat and how is it “eliminated” after Coolsculpting?

I understand cells are “destroyed & “eliminated naturally” but that doesn’t answer the question: HOW exactly? Research revealed fat is reabsorbed into the bloodstream, but unless one decreases calories or goes for a run – won’t that fat then be reabsorbed & (horror!) relocated, to let’s say: my thighs, if I don’t burn it off? I’m worried I’ll end up w/ a fat neck! If I now have to run miles to prevent reabsorption of “released fat”… isn’t that what I should have done to begin with?

A: Coolsculpting is an amazing technique where the fat cells are decreased through the science of cooling these fat cells. These cells are then released through the body via the kidneys. The fat does not move or get absorbed by another area of the body. Please consult a board certified dermatologist who has many years of experience with Coolsculpting for the best cosmetic results and to discuss in detail.
