Q: I am 80 lbs overweight, currently dieting and very active. I am 53 and seeing slow results. Can Zeltiq be used for faster results while I am in the process of losing weight?

A: In general if you want to maximize the results of any procedure, it is best to be close to your desired weight. Zeltiq is a more conservative fat contouring technique than standard liposuction and at this time is best used for patients who have good core body contour with the exception of belly fat and love handle fat. If you have the procedure now, the twenty five percent reduction will be less dramatic than if you have lost more weight. It won't interfere with your weight loss, but the results will be less dramatic.
