Can you use Vanquish on other parts of your body other than your stomach? How effective is it?

Vanquish on other parts of the body

The answer is to wait a few months for the results to catch up. We encountered the same type of questions when CoolSculpting first came available around three years ago. The initial FDA clearance didn’t refer to fat so there were not conclusive answers about efficacy. When we were just getting started treating love handles, our patients wanted to use the treatment to treat bra fat. What I can answer is that there have been published results about fat loss in the abdomen, which means full sides and front, with an average reduction of close to 2 inches, with four one half hour treatment, a week apart.

Vanquish fat reduction

Vanquish can be used on several areas of the body for fat reduction, including abdomen and flanks,upper back,  buttocks, and thighs. Newer applications will allow treatment of arms, calves, etc.

Vanquish Use Beyond the Abdomen


Vanquish has been clinically tested in the abdominal area, which also simultaneously treats the flanks or love handles.

Other areas are very amenable to treatment with Vanquish for fat reduction. Because Vanquish has a large treatment footprint, other large areas of fat deposition can also be treated.

The muffin top, back fat, flanks/love handles, and outer thighs can be treated currently with Vanquish. In the near future, it is likely that there will be a smaller Vanquish applicator to address the inner thighs, upper arms, and even the calves.

According to the clinical study in humans, the average waist circumference was decreased by 2 1/4 inches following 4 weekly Vanquish treatments to the abdomen and flanks. Individual patients outcomes will vary, with some more and some less in terms of inches lost.
