Every person has a specific number of fat cells in each area of their body. The size of these fat cells depends on your weight. The heavier you are, the larger these fat cells will be. While you can lose weight to become smaller, the fat cells themselves never actually go away – until now.
The CoolSculpting® fat-freezing procedure eliminates fat cells in different areas around your body, enabling you to achieve the contours you have always wanted to you look and feel fantastic.
