If you’re currently in the “holiday-gluttony” mood and not quite ready to transition into the “new year, new you” state, you can tuck this doctor-tested treatment suggestion away for a few more weeks.
But, when you are ready to leave sugar-cookie mode behind, take note of what New York dermatologist Heidi A. Waldorf, MD, has to say about one of her personal favorite fat-loss options.

“I’ve done a bunch of CoolSculpting. Patients ask me if I’ve lost weight, but I’m actually at my higher-end weight. It hasn’t made clothes that are a size too small fit again, but my shape is better. However, it does make my clothes that do fit, fit even better without pulling or bunching. My shape is sleeker—like Spanx but without Spanx!”
“In fact, I use the ‘Go Spanx-less’ line with patients all the time!”
Dr. Waldorf does stress that CoolSculpting—the nonsurgical, fat-freezing procedure uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn bulges and, post-treatment in the weeks that follow, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates the dead cells—shouldn’t be looked at as a way to “lose inches” and is more measured by “sculpting and shaping.”
“I tell patients that even when they gain weight, they will weight gain more evenly and keep a better shape post-treatment.”
