8 Areas of Your Body That Respond Well to Coolsculpting
With no downtime and no surgery required, CoolSculpting® has grown in popularity as a way for women and men to slim down their contours. Here are eight areas where CoolSculpting could help you.

Every year in the United States, about 400,000 women and men turn to noninvasive fat reduction techniques to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat. For many of these people, the method they turn to is CoolSculpting®.

While not a weight loss treatment, CoolSculpting can get rid of areas of fat that don't respond to diet and exercise. CoolSculpting uses cold energy to isolate and “freeze” fat, breaking down fat cell walls and essentially “liquefying” fat so your body can dispose of it.

Even more, CoolSculpting can be used on multiple areas of the body, so you can achieve the specific results you’re looking for — without surgery, anesthesia, incisions, or downtime.

At Vein Specialists Institute in Palm Desert and La Quinta, California, Ken Jesser, MD, offers innovative CoolSculpting treatments for women and men. In this post, Dr. Jesser goes over eight areas where CoolSculpting can help you finally say goodbye to stubborn fat.

1. Belly

Belly fat is a common problem for both women and men, becoming a lot more common during and after middle age. While crunches and situps can help strengthen the underlying muscles, they often don’t do much to eliminate the fat that covers these muscles.

CoolSculpting targets stubborn belly fat, isolating it from surrounding tissues and permanently eliminating it. CoolSculpting works on all areas of belly fat, including the lower-belly “pooch” and stubborn “muffin top” fat.

2. Flanks

Also called love handles, your flanks are located along your sides between your lower ribs and hip bones. This area can be difficult to slim down because it doesn't always respond well to traditional dieting and exercise. 

By targeting flank fat, CoolSculpting can help define your waist area and create a smoother, sexier waistline.

3. Buttocks

While a luscious booty can certainly be attractive, the jiggly fat that collects beneath the buttocks typically isn’t. Sometimes called “banana rolls,” under-buttock fat can detract from the natural roundness of the buttocks and make the bottom look flatter and droopier instead of firm and full.

CoolSculpting features special applicators that can target specific areas more effectively, including the area under the buttocks. As a result, we can focus on the fat you want to get rid of and leave the firmer, fuller buttock area unaffected.

4. Inner thighs

Like the flanks, the inner thigh areas can be especially troublesome and resistant to diet and exercise. But even this fat is no match for CoolSculpting’s patented technology. 

CoolSculpting applicators combine freezing energy with gentle suction designed to bring fatty tissue closer to the device’s surface for better results. After your treatment, you can enjoy slimmer thighs and better overall contours.

5. Outer thighs

Also known as saddlebags, the outer thighs can be problematic for both women and men. CoolSculpting uses a variety of applicators to focus on broad or narrow areas of fatty tissue, enabling us to tailor your treatment specifically to you.

With CoolSculpting, we can get rid of jiggly fat on your outer thighs for smoother contours and a better body balance overall. Plus, you can have both your inner thighs and outer thighs treated in one session.

6. Upper back

Upper back fat is a common problem for both men and women, causing lumps and bulges under shirts and other clothing. If you wear a bra, you may be all too familiar with the problems back fat can cause. By removing back fat, CoolSculpting can create smoother contours to help you feel more confident no matter what you’re wearing.

7. Upper arms

The upper arms are notorious for harboring stubborn fat. The good news is these areas often respond beautifully to CoolSculpting. Without incisions or scars, CoolSculpting can help eliminate unsightly “bat wings” to reveal sexier, slimmer arms.

8. Double chin

CoolSculpting isn’t just for large areas of stubborn fat. Thanks to a special applicator designed for smaller areas, it’s a great treatment for submental fat under your chin and jawline, too. With CoolSculpting, you can finally get rid of your double chin and enjoy a more defined profile without surgery.

As noted earlier, CoolSculpting is not a weight loss treatment. Instead, it’s designed to refine your contours by targeting small pockets of stubborn fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise. So this treatment is ideal for people who are at or near their ideal weight and want to slim down in one or more areas.
