If you've ever struggled with stubborn fat that won't seem to go away no matter how hard you work at it, you're not alone. Whether you have "bra fat," "banana rolls," or "love handles," you're one of many men and women who may benefit from CoolSculpting Elite, a fat freezing treatment offered at Fontaine MD Aesthetics and Anti-Aging Medicine for San Diego, CA patients looking for a nonsurgical body contouring solution.

As anyone who has ever lost weight knows, getting rid of the fat is only the first step. However, with just a few lifestyle tweaks, you can enjoy a sleeker, more sculpted look for years to come. Here are a few tips for keeping fat away after CoolSculpting Elite treatments, courtesy of Dr. James D. Fontaine and the team at Fontaine MD Aesthetics and Anti-Aging Medicine.

Is it possible for fat to come back after CoolSculpting?

While CoolSculpting Elite can deliver significant results in nonsurgical fat removal (up to 25% fat reduction in a single session), fat cells in other parts of the body can expand and spread if you regain weight. In other words, while CoolSculpting Elite destroys fat cells, they can be replaced over time. By keeping up a regular exercise regimen and sticking to a nutritious diet, you can ensure that your body sculpting results last.

How lifestyle changes can enhance your body sculpting results

Regular exercise is a great way to maintain your newly contoured physique while improving your overall health and wellness. You can do this with a mix of cardiovascular exercises, including walking, swimming, or cycling, along with strength training. As you enhance your muscle tone and kick your metabolism into higher gear, you're essentially laying the groundwork to maintain that sculpted look you love. Choosing activities that you actually enjoy ensures that you'll stick with them, making it easier to keep those CoolSculpting results in the long run.

How can diet affect your results after fat freezing?

When it comes to maintaining a lean, sculpted figure, mindful eating is key. Focus on filling your plate with whole foods like fresh fruits, crunchy vegetables, lean meats like chicken or fish, and hearty whole grains. These foods are not only packed with the vitamins and minerals your body craves but also help keep you fuller for longer, reducing the temptation to snack on processed, fatty foods. A diet centered around these nutrient-rich options can naturally help control your appetite and reduce cravings, making it easier to keep off the fat post-CoolSculpting.

The importance of hydration

In addition to being a good health tip, staying hydrated is a crucial part of maintaining your body contouring results. Water serves many functions: it helps break down and flush away fat, clears out toxins, and keeps your natural processes running smoothly. Plus, filling up on water can help you feel full, making it easier to say no to snacks and cravings. Keep a water bottle handy and sip your way through the day. It's a simple, effective way to support your metabolism, manage your appetite, and maintain those sculpted contours.

Commit to yourself

CoolSculpting Elite offers a powerful solution for nonsurgical fat removal when diet and exercise just aren't getting the results you want. By committing to a healthy lifestyle, you aren't just maintaining your CoolSculpting results — you're giving your body the care and attention it deserves.
