What Will Happen to My Skin After CoolSculpting®?

When you talk about fat-removal processes, the inevitable next topic is skin. What is to be done about the folds of skin that were stretched over the fat that is no longer there?

At Loveland Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, we are extremely familiar with this topic, and that is part of why we love CoolSculpting® so much. When you get liposuction, you often end up with folds of skin that we can easily take care of. However, CoolSculpting continues its revolutionary theme by being kinder to the skin than any other treatment.

Worry 1: Won’t I get bumps and dimples?

  • If you are undergoing a surgical procedure, you will definitely want to check in with your surgeon, because it is possible to remove too much fat and cause dips in the skin. However, CoolSculpting is applied evenly and reduces 20-25% of the fat layer each treatment, guaranteeing consistent results. Make sure you have an experienced technician to ensure your safety and results.

Worry 2: What about skin laxity?

  • The folds of loose skin that often occur after liposuction are not a worry for those undergoing CoolSculpting. Because CoolSculpting is a more gradual process, your skin will have time to contract. That being said, if your skin is already severely lax, you may not be a good candidate for CoolSculpting.

We at Loveland Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery consider it a privilege to work with you to restore a body that makes you confident. Call our Loveland office for the services of our Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon!
