Where does the fat go after cryolipolysis treatment ?
After the procedure, you will be the same size, as it takes a few weeks to shrink. Your fat is actually held inside of cells, which are more or less little tiny packages that enlarge and shrink as you gain and lose weight. During the cryolipolysis procedure, about 20% of these fat cells are killed, and they release the fat which is slowly absorbed over several weeks. The fat that is released from the fat cells is no different than any fat that you eat. Fat is storage form of energy. This fat can be burned off as calories to keep you warm, propel you while walking, make your lungs work to breathe, etc. That is what will happen if you are at a stable weight or losing weight. If you are gaining weight, then the fat will just mix in with the fat you are eating and get deposited somewhere else. It is important to know that this is not a weight loss procedure. Cryolipolysis refers to “sculpting” or shrinking down stubborn areas.If you are not able to get the weight off, this is not going to help. Your weight will not change as a result of the cryo fat freezing procedure, you have to eat right and exercise to accomplish that.
