Body Contouring Q & A

Why Do I Have Stubborn Pockets of Fat?

You followed your Dr. G’s weight-loss program to the letter, and you’ve dropped the weight — only to be left with stubborn pockets of fat that hold on despite your best efforts. While frustrating, this result isn’t at all uncommon because of the way the human body is wired to carry fat.

For example, women are biologically tuned to hold onto fat around their reproductive organs, which accounts for the fatty deposits around your abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and hips. Men, on the other hand, are wired to carry extra weight in their midsections alone.

Unfortunately, you can’t target this fat through diet and exercise, as your body chooses where it loses the weight. But you can fight back through targeted fat reduction.

How Do CoolSculpting and truSculpt 3D Work?

CoolSculpting and truSculpt 3D work in exactly the same way, but from opposite angles. Both systems target your fat using laser energy, but one relies on heat while the other turns to cold. With CoolSculpting, your fat cells are effectively frozen, causing them to die off. With truSculpt, the system delivers energy that heats up your fat cells, with the same results — your fat cells are destroyed.

Both systems are noninvasive, which means the laser energy passes harmlessly through your skin to tackle the fatty deposits in your tissue below. Both systems can destroy up to 24% of the fat cells in your target area, helping you eliminate those stubborn pockets of fat on your:

  • Thighs
  • Belly
  • Love handles
  • Buttocks
  • Back
  • Upper arms

In fact, both of these technologies can also tackle the fat under your chin.

When Will I See Results?

Most patients undergo three to five fat reduction sessions for optimal results, though this number may vary depending upon the size of the area you want to target. Your results show up gradually as your body processes the destroyed fat cells and flushes them out through your lymphatic system.

About 6-12 weeks after your final treatment, you’re ready for your big reveal as your body recontours itself over your slimmer profile.

If you want that final push to your ideal body shape, call Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness or use the online scheduling tool to book an appointment.
