What Causes Stubborn Belly Fat?

It can be really tough to get rid of lower abdomen and belly fat because that area tends to hold on to fat stubbornly. This is because the fat cells in the abdominal region are more resistant to breaking up and burning for energy in comparison to fat cells in other areas of the body.

One reason belly fat is so hard to lose is because it’s often the last place our bodies want to let go of fat. This is because belly fat is known as “visceral fat,” which surrounds our organs. Our bodies like to hold onto this fat as a safeguard in case we need energy in the future.

Another common factor that can cause lower abdomen and belly fat is poor diet choices. Eating too many unhealthy foods high in sugar and fat can lead to excess fat storage in the belly. Another reason for stubborn tummy fat is lack of exercise. Not getting enough physical activity can cause fat to build up around the belly area.

Stress is another shared element that can contribute to that hard-to-lose lower abdomen fat. When you stress, your body releases cortisol. This is a hormone that can actually increase belly fat. Belly fat can also be tricky to shed because it can be influenced by factors like genetics and hormones. Some people may have a genetic predisposition to store fat in their belly, while others may have imbalanced hormones that make it harder to lose weight in that area. As a result, some individuals are more likely to store fat in their tummy region.

Benefits of CoolSculpting Lower Abs & Belly

Many amazing benefits exist for men and women seeking CoolSculpting to eliminate exercise-resistant fat and improve their lower abdomen and belly area. A considerable advantage of CoolSculpting is that it freezes and permanently kills stubborn fat cells in this common problem area.

Additional benefits include:

Another notable perk of this body contouring treatment is that we can treat numerous areas of your body simultaneously in one treatment session. “DualSculpting” is where two CoolSculpting machines are used simultaneously. We place dual applicators on multiple areas of your belly and deliver targeted cooling to reduce fat cells at once. This is a great way to save time and reach your aesthetic goals faster. The number of applicators needed for the belly area varies from patient to patient. However, if you are a candidate, we may recommend two applicators to maximize the results of your CoolSculpting tummy session.

How Does CoolSculpting Permanently Reduce Belly Fat?

Cryolipolysis uses extremely cold temperatures to freeze and destroy fat cells in your belly. Here’s how it goes down: a special cooling applicator is placed on your skin, targeting the specific area where you want to lose fat. The machine then suctions up the skin and fat, chilling it to a temperature that kills the fat cells without harming the surrounding tissue.

As the fat cells crystallize and die, your body naturally eliminates them over time. Wondering where the fat cells go after they are frozen? Thanks to your body’s lymphatic system, these fat cells process out of the body as waste. This results in a gradual reduction of fat in the treated area, giving you a slimmer and more toned belly.

The best part is once those fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good! Say goodbye to that muffin top or spare tire because cryolipolysis offers a permanent solution to reducing belly fat.

CoolSculpting Tummy – What to Expect

CoolSculpting the lower abdomen and belly is a quick and convenient procedure. In general, CoolSculpting a tummy session takes under 45 minutes to complete. We place a specialized cooling applicator device over your lower abdomen during this fat-freezing treatment session. The applicator slowly cools the temperature of the fat cells in this target area until they freeze. This may feel like a pinching or pulling sensation until the treatment area is completely numb. Once your fat cells are frozen, this destroys them. Meanwhile, no harm is done to your surrounding skin and tissue.  

Following treatment, we massage the belly to break up frozen tissue and start healing. We recommend a series of three CoolSculpting treatments for optimal results. Following each session, you may experience slight redness, numbness, or swelling in the lower abdomen area. There is no need to worry as these symptoms disappear on their own. Additionally, there is minimal downtime following your CoolSculpting tummy sessions. You are free to get back to your daily activities following your treatment.

Lower Abdomen & Belly CoolSculpting Results in San Bernardino

CoolSculpting is a game-changing option if you want to tone up and contour your belly area and destroy stubborn fat once and for all. CoolSculpting provides long-term results that are visible as soon as one month after your first treatment session. 

CoolSculpting clinical studies found that cryolipolysis effectively reduces subcutaneous fat in the treatment area by up to 25%* after one treatment. Additionally, 86% of patients in the clinical study saw “visible reductions” in fat from their abdomen. CoolSculpting results and duration of results vary based on different factors such as lifestyle habits, aging, and potential weight gain. Therefore, it is important to have realistic goals about what a fat reduction treatment can achieve.

Am I A Candidate for Lower Abdomen & Belly Fat Freezing?

A CoolSculpting fat-freezing procedure is not for everyone. The ideal candidate is a healthy adult within 20 pounds of their ideal weight who is struggling with stubborn fat. Additionally, they have good skin elasticity, which is important in order for them to bounce back once we remove the fat. The best CoolSculpting candidate also has a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or less. Perhaps the most important factor determining treatment candidacy is having at least ⅔ an inch of pinchable fat, not just skin. This is crucial for the target areas to fit into the CoolSculpting applicator.
