Many of us wonder what makes us fat and how to permanently get rid of it. Fat is made up of cells called adipocytes. The production of adipocytes starts in childhood and extends into early adulthood, after which the production stops. The number as well as the size of the adipocytes primarily determines our body fat content. The general scientific consensus is that we regulate our body fat by increasing or decreasing the size of the fat cells. There is really no regulatory process in the body that destroys fat cells.
One way to lose body fat is through diet and exercise. But what about those people that go through a strict diet regimen, a vigorous exercise routine, and yet they continue to have small pockets of body fat that they just can’t get rid of? One solution is Coolsculpting. By means of controlled freezing, Coolsculpting induces destruction of these fat cells. And once these adipocytes are destroyed, they are gone for good!
