The Results Can Last If You Put in the Effort

Plastic surgery can help you achieve the looks you want but it is up to you to make the results last. Like any other procedure, if you want to keep the great results, you will have to make a change or maintain your healthy lifestyle. This means you should eat healthy and exercise regularly.

You Will Need To Give Great Results Time

CoolSculpting can give you amazing results but you need to remember it is not one of the cosmetic procedures that give instant gratification. You might need to do several treatment sessions to achieve the perfect look. Most patients see results in a couple weeks to six months.

You Might Need to Get a Lift

CoolSculpting focuses on removing fat from the body but it will not reduce excess skin or improve the elasticity of your skin. If you have loose skin in the treated area, you can consider a tummy tuck, thigh lift, or any other skin tightening procedure to get the look you want.
