A suitable candidate for CoolSculpting would be someone who is generally healthy and within 30 pounds of their ideal body weight, but has stubborn pockets of fat that have not responded to diet and exercise. CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss procedure, so it is best suited for those who are close to their goal weight but need help targeting specific areas.

Will having a pregnancy after CoolSculpting affect the results?
There is no evidence to suggest that having a pregnancy after CoolSculpting would affect the results. However, it is important to note that CoolSculpting is not recommended for pregnant women.
What causes excess skin to appear after CoolSculpting?
Excess skin after CoolSculpting is typically due to a number of factors, such as the patient’s age, skin elasticity, and the amount of fat removed during the procedure. As the skin loses elasticity with age, it may not be able to “snap back” into place after the fat has been removed. Additionally, if too much fat is removed during the procedure, the skin may not be able to contract enough to fit the new contours of the body. In some cases, excess skin can also be caused by improper technique during the procedure, such as not keeping the applicator in place long enough or not cooling the area adequately.
