Should You Postpone Your CoolSculpting Appointment Until After Losing Weight? 

Posted on October 25, 2021 by Dr Elenora Fedoneko

CoolSculpting is a safe and effective non-invasive way to selectively remove fat deposits near the surface of the skin. CoolSculpting is primarily a way to improve one’s cosmetic appearance – it is not an effective way to actually lose weight. So, if one is actively trying to lose weight, the question arises: should you wait until after you’ve reached your target weight before considering CoolSculpting, or should you go ahead without waiting?

Diet and Exercise vs CoolSculpting

Losing weight through diet and/or exercise is undoubtedly the most effective way to improve one’s health and general appearance. Still, for all but the most focused bodybuilder, it’s not a practical way to achieve weight loss on specific parts of the body. Conversely, while CoolSculpting is not an effective way to lose weight, it is an extremely efficient way to change the appearance of specific body parts.

Dieting and CoolSculpting are not really in competition with each other – each has its place, and each can help you improve your appearance and self-image in different ways.


A significant problem when attempting weight loss by diet or exercise is the long period of time that the diet and exercise need to be maintained to achieve significant results. The main problem with keeping to a diet is maintaining one’s motivation. CoolSculpting can, by bringing you fast results, also boost your motivation and a general feeling of well-being. This, in turn, can allow you better to stick with your longer-term diet and exercise programs.


Our experience is that there are clear benefits to NOT delaying CoolSculpting treatments until after one has lost weight. The benefits of CoolSculpting will increase your chances of successfully maintaining long-term changes to your diet and daily exercise, and you will be able to enjoy the benefits of your CoolSculpting treatment straight away.
