Fat Freezing/CoolSculpting for belly fat and possible side effects

Over eight million Fat Freezing treatments have been performed worldwide. Unlike other surigical options such as liposuction, which may include anesthesia and the risk of bleeding or severe infection, Fat Freezing is a relatively safe procedure in the office, with minimal pain and no downtime. Treatment lasts 35 minutes per application and may require multiple applications to cover an area. For example, four or more applications may be needed to ensure the best result of fat cell elimination from the entire abdominal area.

Common side effects of treatment include redness, bruising, swelling, tingling, numbness, or darkening of the treated area. Most of these side effects, if any, resolve within a few months of treatment. Although relatively rare, the side effect of cryolipolysis is, paradoxically, increasing fat growth in the treatment space. The exact frequency of this side effect is unknown; however, it occurs less than 1% of the time.

The results are already visible after four weeks, with the maximum gain visible almost two months later. The average fat reduction for each round of treatment is 20 %, and there is no evidence of side effects throughout the body. The second round of treatment may be 4-6 weeks later, depending on the desired outcome.
