The Difference Between Losing Weight vs Losing Fat

It may be confusing to hear that reducing fat is not the same as losing weight. It’s all about what happens to fat CELLS.

Losing weight makes fat cells smaller

Losing weight does not make fat cells go away

The number of fat cells in our bodies typically becomes a fixed number sometime in our teenage years. Losing or gaining weight generally does not increase or decrease the number of fat cells. Instead, it changes the size of fat cells.

Fat Cells After Typical Weight Loss

After dieting and weight loss, fat cells get smaller but the number of fat cells stays the same.

When weight is gained, fat cells get bigger.

Fat Cells After the CoolSculpting Procedure

The CoolSculpting fat-freezing procedure actually reduces the number of fat cells in treated areas by about 20% to 25%.

These fat cells are naturally processed and eliminated, so they won’t migrate to another area of your body. And there’s no change to fat cells in untreated areas.*
