Where does the fat go after Coolsculpting?

How does your body get rid of it?

Coolsculpting freezes the fat quickly, but the process of eliminating the fat takes a few months: typically three to four months. The process of cryolipolysis (fat freezing) sets off a natural process called “apoptosis” which causes the fat cells and the fat to be broken down and eaten by cells of the immune system. The fat is then excreted in the breath, sweat, urine and faeces over the next few months. Because your body does not make new fat cells, the fat is gone for good. Coolsculpting is the definitive fat freezing and non-invasive body-contouring technique available, as well as the safest and most reliable with the largest body of scientific evidence demonstrating real results.
