Eliminate ‘Holiday Fat’ with CoolSculpting

Posted by March 13th, 2020 in News

The holiday season usually means endless parties, reunions, and get-togethers, which translates to practically non-stop eating and drinking. If you’re worried about holiday weight gain, you should know that technological advancements in cosmetics have given patients more non-invasive options for fat removal, like CoolSculpting.

Briefly, CoolSculpting is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that eliminates stubborn fats around the belly area as well as the flanks. The ideal candidate is someone who is within one to 20 pounds of their ideal weight; has an active lifestyle, and generally has good eating habits. It is not a weight-loss treatment.

The truth about holiday weight gain

First off, there’s no truth to the ‘rumors’ that have been making the rounds for decades about holiday weight gain; that is, you gain a minimum of five pounds during the holidays. On average, people gain about a pound over six months, which means that if you watch your weight between September and March (which covers the holiday season), you’ll notice a difference of at least one pound.

The problem isn’t the weight gained over the holidays (even if it’s only one pound), it’s keeping that extra pound that’s the problem. That extra pound could double in another six months, and if the cycle is repeated over time, that’s when becoming overweight or obese becomes the real issue.

CoolSculpting for removing holiday fat

With that said, you shouldn’t wait long to get rid of that extra pound you gained over the holidays because the longer you delay it, the higher the risk that you won’t ever deal with it at all – at least not in the near future, which could be the start of the ‘weight gain cycle.’

How does CoolSculpting work?

Briefly, CoolSculpting eliminates stubborn fats in the midsection by freezing the fat cells in the target area and allowing the body to naturally eliminate this over time. A lot of people wonder if the eliminated fats will ever return and the answer is ‘no’ because one these have been expelled by the body, they are gone for good.

However, there is still that risk of gaining fats around the area again if the patient is not active, has a poor diet, and is not exerting any conscious effort to maintain their ideal weight. These are new fats and not the same ones that were removed through CoolSculpting.
