How to Get Rid of Your Muffin Top: the CoolSculpting Approach

You zip up your jeans and they fit, just a little tight. But then you look in the mirror and see it: the muffin top. That little bit of extra pudge sitting on top of the waistband of your jeans. You could always buy new jeans – either high-waisted or a bigger size. You could also cover it with a sweater; but wouldn’t you want to get rid of it for good?

CoolSculpting is a fairly new, non-invasive procedure that will help you get rid of your muffin top.

What Is CoolSculpting?

Do you have that annoying midsection fat that creates a muffin top when you wear pants that are even slightly too small? Even if you eat healthy and exercise daily, you may still have this problem which is where CoolSculpting comes in.

CoolSculpting is a technology that is used to kill fat cells by freezing them, leaving them to “fall off.” However, unlike other procedures, healthy cells will not be harmed, as well there is no downtime! Many people even use their lunch break to get it done.

The procedure isn’t painful like others can be, and there is no use of needles or blades – you won’t have any scarring.

The Procedure

When you book your CoolSculpting appointment, you will first have a consultation with the CoolSculpting expert on what areas you would like to treat. They will come up with a plan on how to treat this area, and how many sessions you will need to come to the best results.

On the day of your treatment, there will be before photos taken so that you will be able to see your differences. After this, you will be able to get yourself comfortable on the bed before the applicator is placed. The applicator used is a bit like a vacuum as it will suck the tissue of the treatment area into a cup which is when you will feel the cold sensation come. This is where some patients will be slightly uncomfortable for about 5 minutes before the area goes numb and you can relax fully.

After the treatment is done, the expert will take off the applicator and massage the area so that the dead fat cells can be broken up and more easily disposed of through the body’s liver.

The CoolSculpting Benefits

CoolSculpting comes with many benefits, the most important being that it is a non-invasive procedure. This means you will have no scarring, and you don’t need any downtime or recovery time. The procedure was developed by Dr. Rox Anderson and Dr. Dieter Manstein, scientists associated with the Harvard Medical School-affiliated Wellman Center of Photomedicine, and has been cleared by the FDA – so you know that you will see results, and it is healthy.

Along with being developed by scientists, many other studies have been done which show that it is a clinically proven way to lose fat. In one single treatment, you could see a fat loss of up to 20%!


CoolSculpting sessions aren’t long! Some treatments can take as little as 35 minutes to complete, meaning you have a full day to do whatever you please. As well, you’re able to relax and watch tv, go on your phone, or read a book while the procedure is being done.

It’s virtually painless! You can liken the feeling of having to ice an injury, but after the first couple minutes, the area goes numb and you no longer can feel it. This is the same with CoolSculpting, you may feel some tingling, to begin with, but it quickly goes away and the rest of the treatment is painless.

Another great benefit is that during a CoolSculpting session, you can get multiple areas done at once. This is great because it will cut your session time in half, and also means you won’t need as many treatments.

A benefit that helps everyone who chooses to do CoolSculpting is that it helps you love the way you look again. You may have just lost a lot of weight and can’t shed those last areas of fat, CoolSculpting will help you feel happy with what you see in the mirror.

How To Get Rid Of Your Muffin Top With CoolSculpting

The “muffin top” may be the most annoying area of fat that people deal with, because it seems that everything you may do, it is still there. So, can CoolSculpting really help?

The answer: yes!

The use of CoolSculpting can reduce your layer of fat in that area by up to 25%. But it not only reduces it, but it also gets rid of it forever. CoolSculpting will kill those unwanted extra fat cells, and the body then flushes them out – so they are gone from your body.

Since the fat has been removed from your body, this means that the results of CoolSculpting can last for as long as possible! However, this doesn’t mean that new fat cells can take over if you gain weight in the future – this is why it’s important to exercise and stick with a healthy diet.

CoolSculpting is not a substitute to diet and exercise, and it is not a procedure for people who are obese. This is something to pursue when you have lost the weight you want, but have those stubborn remaining bulges.

Other Areas That CoolSculpting Can Help

CoolSculpting can help more than just your muffin top! If you have more areas that you are self-conscious about, CoolSculpting can most likely help you with them.

Some other areas that you can CoolSculpt include:

  • The under chin
  • The bulge you get when you wear your bra
  • Your inner and outer thighs
  • Your upper arms
  • Beneath your bum
  • Your back fat

This means there is definitely a CoolSculpting procedure that will help you get rid of unwanted fat in almost any area!
