Wanting to give your post-pregnancy body a bit of a boost is nothing unusual. After all, it can be a bit of a shock to see yourself in the mirror once the bump no longer houses a baby! Of course, the baby is a very welcome addition to your family, but the leftover pouches of fat that somehow just won’t go away? Not so much.

If you’d like to tackle stubborn fat that’s refusing to succumb to your best efforts, postpartum CoolSculpting® may be just what you’re looking for. FDA-cleared and non-surgical, CoolSculpting is the only treatment of its kind to use controlled cooling to wipe out fat cells.

Is It Too Soon for Postpartum CoolSculpting?

Generally, it’s best to wait for 6 months postpartum before opting for any kind of cosmetic procedure, and CoolSculpting is no different. Although CoolSculpting is non-surgical, your body’s already been through quite an upheaval, so let yourself fully recover from pregnancy and childbirth before making any more changes.

CoolSculpting is most suitable for those who are already at or near their ideal weight, so you’ll need to factor that into your post-birth, pre-CoolSculpting timeframe.CoolSculpting isn’t going anywhere, and an experienced CoolSculpting specialist will advise you not to rush into it. In the meantime, you can educate yourself about your CoolSculpting options.

What Is CoolSculpting?

It’s recommended to wait around 6 months after pregnancy and childbirth before opting for postpartum CoolSculpting.

CoolSculpting uses controlled cooling technology to remove fat cells. Rather than simply removing the fat, CoolSculpting goes straight to the source, freezing away fat cells from the treated area. CoolSculpting focuses on fat reduction rather than weight lossfor effective and long-lasting results. Results will vary from person to person, but working with an experienced CoolSculpting specialist will help you to ensure you achieve the best possible outcome.

Where Can I Have Postpartum CoolSculpting?

In short, you can have CoolSculpting pretty much anywhere you’ve spotted stubborn fat pockets you’d like to say goodbye to. Some of the most popular treatment areas are the abdomen, waist, love handles, back, banana rolls, upper arms and that pesky bulge that appears under your bra strap. There’s a range of CoolSculpting or DualSculpting applicators available to suit different areas of the body.

If you’re interested in CoolSculpting, your first step should be booking a consultation with an experienced CoolSculpting specialist who can assess your individual requirements and advise how the treatment could help you feel better about your postpartum figure.

Am I Eligible for CoolSculpting?

Most people are good CoolSculpting candidates, as long as you’re in good general health and understand that it’s a complement to a healthy lifestyle, not a replacement for one. While the fat cells frozen during CoolSculpting can’t grow back, any weight fluctuation could affect your results. If you maintain your weight, you will maintain your new shape.

You’ll also need to wait a while after pregnancy and childbirth, both to let your body recover and to allow time for any baby weight to settle by itself. Even if you’ve had a C-section rather than a vaginal birth, you can still be eligible for CoolSculpting. Just add that to your list of questions to ask your CoolSculpting specialist at your initial appointment.
