Like any other procedure, there are a lot of questions that patients normally need to have answered about cool sculpting before and after they can get the procedure done. All this is important so that they do get to know what they are getting into. It is wise to allow them a chance to really understand the nature of the procedure, and how the results will turn out. This is usually advisable because when the patients are well in the know, they will find it easier to appreciate the results. It is a good way to manage their expectations and keep things real too.
The following are some of the common questions that patients worry about, especially when it comes to the prospect of coolsculpting before and after the process is finished. By getting a good understanding of these questions, they are in a better position to appreciate the work they are about to have done on them.
Can I get frostbite?
The fact that this procedure is done under intense cold will, of course, elicit the question of whether or not there will be frostbite. Interestingly enough, millions of this procedure have been carried out the world over, and so far, the case of frostbite has been rare. In a well-documented case where frostbite was experienced, it was as a result of a practitioner error, and luckily enough, the frostbite eventually healed on its own, without causing any pigmentation or damage to the skin of the patient.
What we are trying to highlight here is the fact that in as far as cool sculpting before and after is concerned, you do not need to worry about things like frostbite. It is a completely safe procedure, so you have very little to worry about.
Do I get bumps or dimples?
When we think about surgical procedures like liposuction, there is too much fat that gets removed in one go. As a result of this, there is always a risk that you could end up with bumps where the fat has been removed. On the other hand, coolsculpting does provide an even and steady reduction in the layer of fat in your body. Because of this reason, you should not experience any dimples or bumps.
Assuming that the doctor uses the coolsculpting applicator efficiently, you will not need to worry about any divots in your body as a result of this process.
Does the process increase cholesterol in my body?
There is the obvious concern among a lot of patients that having frozen fat in the body will lead to an increase in fat cells in the body, hence a relative increase in cholesterol. This is not true. As a matter of fact, after coolsculpting, the fat that is frozen will be eliminated from the body, through the lymphatic system. As a matter of fact, a number of studies have been carried out into the same, taking a look at the blood samples after the treatment, and there is no proof that there could be changes in the blood cholesterol levels or the blood lipid levels. Therefore, this is a safe procedure, and you can proceed without any worries whatsoever, of having high cholesterol in your blood.
