Fat Reduction vs. Weight Loss

Dr. Justin Hogan

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LOSING WEIGHT VS LOSING FAT

It may be confusing to hear that reducing fat is not the same as losing weight. It’s all about what happens to fat CELLS.

  • LOSING WEIGHT MAKES FAT CELLS SMALLER

  • LOSING WEIGHT DOES NOT MAKE FAT CELLS GO AWAY

The number of fat cells in our bodies typically becomes a fixed number sometime in our teenage years. Losing or gaining weight generally does not increase or decrease the number of fat cells. Instead, it changes the size of fat cells.

HOW YOUR BODY PROCESSES FAT FROM FOOD:

The fat you eat in food…
…travels through your digestive system…
…and then to the liver. Processed fat is the energy source for your body. Excess fat is stored in fat cells.

HOW YOUR BODY PROCESSES FAT CELLS AFTER COOLSCULPTING TREATMENT:

Your body has a fixed number of fat cells that get bigger or smaller as you gain or lose weight.
When you have the CoolSculpting treatment, fat cells freeze and start to die off.
During the process of cell death, fat cells begin to collapse.
Over the weeks following your procedure, other cells consume the dead fat cells, which are naturally processed and eliminated from the body.

THE RESULT? TREATED FAT CELLS ARE GONE FOR GOOD.

Those stubborn fat bulges start to disappear, leaving a more sculpted you. After your CoolSculpting treatment, you may not weigh less, but you’ll look thinner. And, your clothes will fit better and look better just in time for Summer.

Not only do we want you to feel more confident after your CoolSculpting treatment, but we want you to feel healthier. As you eliminate those fat cells, we want to encourage you to take a healthier approach in the way you eat, work-out, sleep and live your day to day life.
