3 FACTS ABOUT FREEZING FAT
1 It’s an alternative to liposuction.
The nonsurgical procedure breaks down fat cells by freezing them. Other cells absorb the fat cells and help your body get rid of them.
2 The cost can add up.
Depending on how many areas are treated and the amount of fat, it can cost between $2,000 and $4,000, and insurance probably won’t cover it.
3 Side effects are possible.
Bruising, swelling, pain sensitivity and tingling are common. Although rare, paradoxical adipose hyperplasia—a larger area of hardened fat— occurs more frequently than previously thought.
