Can Ice Packs Reduce Belly Fat?

Many of us only feel our best if we look our best. Excess body fat may cause us to feel self-conscious about our physical appearance. If diet and exercise don’t seem to be producing the results that you want, you may grasp at straws trying to find a solution that produces results.

Debunking Methods That Don’t Work

Freezing off your fat is a method that has gained popularity over recent years. The idea is that the colder your body is, the harder it is working internally to heat itself up, burning excess calories along the way. However, strapping an ice pack to your stomach or to the targeted area won’t yield the results that you want. Additionally, this can be dangerous, because applying an ice pack to bare skin can, and will, cause frostbite, which can lead to a multitude of issues that require further medical evaluation and treatment. Cryolipolysis, which is the fancy name for fat-freezing, only works if the fat layer itself is specifically targeted. Again, an ice pack applied directly to bare skin for an extended period of time can cause serious medical issues to both the skin layer and the underlying muscle. Only specific modalities, like CoolSculpting, should be used in an effort to reduce pockets of fat via freezing. The CoolSculpting technology specifically targets the fat layer in the human body, while effectively protecting the dermal and muscle layers.

Plus, in order for fat-freezing methods to become effective, they typically need to be completed a few times.

Turn to Liposuction Instead

Instead of relying on a potentially promising fat-loss method, why not turn to a tried-and-true method to minimize fat? Liposuction in Schaumburg has long been used as an effective tool to reduce body fat. Liposuction is a great way to target specific areas of your body that are stubborn against weight loss. This procedure is ideal for those who have just experienced significant weight loss and want to improve their body’s natural contours. It’s mainly utilized to improve physical appearance and targets the following areas of the body:

  • Back
  • Abdomen
  • Chest
  • Buttocks
  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Upper arms
  • Neckline
  • Flanks

Many patients turn to our expertise at the Liposuction & Cosmetic Surgery Institute for this procedure. Don’t wait to see how liposuction in Schaumburg can benefit you, contact our team today to schedule a consultation.
