Zeltiq CoolSculpting is not indicated for obesity, just localized fat deposits
The fat that is stored in the abdomen, behind the muscle wall, is not treatable by Zeltiq's CoolSculpting, nor liposuction. If fat has accumulated in a generalized distribution around the waist, stomach, flanks, arms, thighs, etc, and there are no focal areas that can be isolated, then Zeltiq would not work well and it would be extremely costly to treat such a surface area. It is unfortunate with many patients who are afflicted with chronic pain and disabilities, that they are no longer able to exercise as they used to. If swimming is possible, it may help provide some exericse while making the body buoyant and there is less pressure on certain body parts. Regardless of exercise, if you're obese, then you should see a nutritionist to help you severely cut your calories each day that you consume, but ensure that you are eating the right types of calories and nutrition. The weight you lose may help lessen the back pain too. Best Wishes.

The Ideal CoolSculpting Candidate
For someone considering CoolSculpting, you should be in good health in fairly normal weight, and simply have areas of fat that have proven hard to get rid of. Many CoolSculpting patients find that their results have given them incentive to begin new habits with diet and exercise that have resulted in further weight loss and enhanced self esteem.

Cool sculpting if Overweight?
Thank you for the question.
No, I would not recommend cool sculpting to treat patients who are overweight. As with any “body contouring” procedure, surgical or nonsurgical, it is best to have these procedures done when patients have achieved a long-term stable weight. Cool sculpting, like liposuction surgery, is indicated for patients with diet and exercise resistant adipose tissue (with acceptable overlying skin elasticity attributes).
Generally speaking, patients who are overweight are better off seeking consultation with medical practitioners expert in weight loss, personal trainers, nutritionists etc.
I hope this helps.
