CoolSculpting in Small Frame

I don't believe the frame has a big influence on the CoolSculpting Cryoliposis.  The most important factor that we have found over the 3 years of using the technology is the relation of the fat and skin.  If the skin and fat easily distracts from the inner core, then more of the tissue will come in contact with the cooling process and usually a better result ensues.  Make sure to find a certified center with good before and after photos of CoolSculpting.  Kent V.

CoolSculpting can reduce fat and cause fat loss in healthy patients

If there is a localized fat accumulation that can be pinched between the skin, then coolsculpting is probably a good treatment alternative provided the applicator will fit on the area.

The best way to assess Coolsculpting Candidates

I believe the best way to assess candidates for Coolsculpting is to pinch their fat. That really does the best job at finding non visceral fat that will respond. In correctly assessed patients, Coolsculpting works consistently.

Part of the CoolSculpting consultation would include an evaluation of the area to be treated to be sure you are a good candidate for the procedure. A healthy person with stubborn areas fat is generally a good candidate, but only a consultation would allow you to know for certain.

It is hard to say without seeing you.  Please make an appointment with a provider who has a CoolSculpting machine for an appropriate analysis and consultation.
