CoolSculpting for back fat

CoolSculpting can definitely be effective for back fat. It may require 2-4 applicators depending on the area and amount of fat, but as long as the fat can be suctioned into the applicator in order to be treated properly, then you should be a good candidate. Each applicator usually reduces about 20-25% of the fat in the area. It is best to get a consultation in order to assess if CoolSculpting is the right choice for you.

Cool sculpting treatments lead to permanent fat loss of the back fat!

Body reshaping can be performed with a cannula that removes fat via liposuction or with noninvasive technology like Cool Sculpting. With Cool Sculpting there is no cannula inserted into your body. All treatments are performed on the surface from the outside in using technology that freezes the fat. Don’t hesitate to give us a call in Austin regarding a Body Reshaping Consult at the Upper Room. On our Facebook Page there is an Interview I recently did with KVUE, a local news station in Austin, that was picked by affiliates around the United States, including Miami. During the Interview we discussed the technology of Cool Sculpting as well as it application process.


Coolsculpting is effective for back fat

Coolsculpting can be used effectively for fat on certain areas of the back.  The most commonly treated areas are the areas of the lower back that extend from the love handles, and the mid back fat bellow the braline.  Typically, the smaller applicators are used to treat these localized areas.  These are also great locations to have Dual Coolsculpting done, wherein treatment centers that have two machines can treat 2 areas at the same time, reducing treatment time by half.

Yes it works on the back!

Coolsculpting can be done for abdomen, flanks, back and thighs. As long as you can pinch an inch and a half of fat we can attach an applicator. The back of the bra area or the love handles are perfect examples of stubborn areas of fat that respond great to the treatment. Patients lose about 20-25% of fat after each treatment and for the best results you should retreat the area in 2-3 months.

Dependent on Area of Back to Be Treated

Hi Staunton87, CoolSculpting® is FDA-cleared for non-surgical fat reduction of the hips, abdomen, and flanks.  Depending on which area of the back to which you’re referring and how much excess fat you have, CoolSculpting® may be a good option.  Most CoolSculpting® patients report a 20% fat reduction of the treatment area with one session.

CoolSculpting for Back Fat

Thank you for your question. If you have stubborn bulges of back fat, CoolSculpting is an excellent option for reducing this. Typically, each CoolSculpting treatment results in a noticeable reduction of fat in the treated area. After the initial treatment is complete, you can attain further reductions with additional treatments, resulting in even more fat loss. Some patients find that just one treatment fully addresses their goals. You and your doctor will discuss and design a plan that suits you best.

CoolSculpting and Back Fat

Provided that the back fat is not too fibrous with increased collagen bands within the fat pockets, and that an applicator can fit well with good suction, then the fat may respond well to this off-label procedure.
