Coolsculpting in Tijuana

We all have stubborn areas of fat that just won’t respond to exercise and don’t even respond as much as we wish to lose weight. Working out and watching your weight is an important part of staying fit, but you can’t control where exactly on your body your fat is deposited when you gain weight, or from what area of your body it leaves when you lose weight. Crunches or sit-ups don’t necessarily melt off belly fat, nor does running necessarily burn stubborn thigh fat. Exercise does burns calories but your body decides (primarily genetics) where the fat comes from to pay that caloric debt. With arguably the best body sculpting Mexico has to offer, Dr. Verduzco can help you get rid of that stubborn fat.

One way to look at it is: Our fat calls are basically our microscopic safe-deposit boxes where we store fat, which is the body’s reserve source of fuel and energy. Remember, we have evolved over many thousands of years to survive prolonged periods of starvation. So our bodies are brilliantly programmed to convert any excess calories we eat into fat and store it in our fat cells. Unlike the safe-deposit boxes you find at your local bank, which are made of tough steel, fat cells are considerably flexible. They grow bigger and bigger like a balloon when excess fat is deposited into them, such as after a heavy meal. And they shrink down to close to obsolete when we aren’t ingesting enough calories and so our bodies ‘withdrawal’ fat to help refuel our bodies.

We all have several million upon billions of fat cells. the number of fat cells that we have and the distribution of those cells are both pretty much fixed from very early in life (around twelve months in age). The reason that different people have different shapes is that their fat cells are distributed differently. The woman with disproportionately wide outer thighs has more fat cells in that area, and therefore she perceives it as a stubborn disproportion. One man may have a relative ‘hill’ of fat cells under his chin; another in his love handles, and so on.

Conclusively, whether we are gaining or losing weight, it’s always based on our fatty proportions; we always maintain those proportions. That is unless we perform a spot-on reduction procedure. Historically, liposuction was the only option for spot reduction of fatty bulges. Until CoolSculpting came along…

In clinical studies, cryolipolysis procedures such as CoolSculpting have been shown to be highly effective. Patients saw an up to 25% subcutaneous fat reduction in treated areas after only one treatment, with over 85% of subjects seeing some sort of improvement overall. Patient satisfaction was also higher than with other noninvasive lipolysis procedures.

Some benefits of CoolSculpting include:

  • No needles or surgery required
  • No time needed for recovery after treatment
  • 20-25% loss of fat in the treated area
  • Once fat cells are gone, they cannot grow back in the same area!

There is no downtime following your CoolSculpting treatment – you will be able to return to your regular daily activities immediately. However, you may feel numb for a few weeks while the fat is depleted from your body. You may also experience tenderness, redness, or bruising in the treated area. You can expect to see results about 2 weeks following your treatment, with the full results of your CoolSculpting procedure appearing 2-4 months after treatment. Please remember that results vary between individuals.

CoolSculpting FAQs

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a process that utilizes a process called Cryolipolysis®. We simply freeze the fat cells under your skin. Your body will naturally process those cells, allowing a sleek, new you to emerge!

Does it work?

Yes, it does! Fat cells are very sensitive to cold temperatures, and we use a very gentle freezing process. The treatment is non-invasive, and will not affect your nerves, or the skin or muscle tissue.

Who should consider CoolSculpting?

If you are dealing with love handles or a double chin; or if you have fat on your thighs, upper arms or abdomen, you know how difficult it can be to lose it. Even with exercise, fat in those places can be very hard to shed. If this is the case for you, talk to us about CoolSculpting.

What are the advantages of CoolSculpting?
  • CoolSculpting requires no surgery and no needles!
  • You will lose 20 to 25% of the fat cells in the treated area!
  • Once those cells are gone, they will never return!
How long will I have to wait to see the results?

You should begin to notice a difference in about two weeks after your treatment. The full results should be visible in about two to four months. However, every person’s body is different, and results will vary between people.

What kind of recovery time does CoolSculpting require?

No recovery time is needed with CoolSculpting. In fact, you will be able to return to your normal routine immediately!

What can I expect after my treatment? Are there any side effects?

While you will be able to resume your normal activities when the treatment is finished, you may experience some numbness in the treated area for a few weeks, or some initial bruising or redness.
