I am a 20 year old female. I want coolsculpting done.. Can I treat my waist so i can become smaller???
You may be a great candidate for CoolSculpting. Please seek an in person assessment from an experienced clinic.
You need to be evaluated to see if your problem is due to excess fat thickness or intra abdominal fullness. If you have thicker fat around your abdomen, CoolSculpting may provide you with an improvement. Losing weight through diet may provide you the largest change.
Usually you will need about 2-3 inches of 'pinch' for CoolSculpting. Ultrashape may be better for you.
Ultrashape is an alternative to CoolSculpting that allows for a little less fat, yet still does a good job. Your picture didn't show anything but from your description, you don't have a huge amount of fat and not so much laxity so that could mean you are a better candidate for Ultrashape, which works well in those instances. Good luck!
Coolsculpting and Results
Coolsculpting can be used in my areas of the body. I suggest a formal consultation to see what is best -- non invasive versus not. Best, Dr. Emer.
Waist reduction with Coolsculpting?
I don't think it is possible to go from a 28 to a 23 inch waist with Coolsculpting. This procedure only reduces fat, and only about 20-25% each treatment. Liposuction would be a more aggressive treatment. Given the poor photo quality, I'm not sure what or if anything would work.
CoolSculpting To Shrink Waist
Your picture is poor quality and hard to see, but it sounds like you don't have enough fat to be an appropriate candidate for CoolSculpting. There may be other options available for you, though. I would suggest an in-person consultation and evaluation with an experienced provider.
Coolscultping for a small waist
Your picture did not come through, but from your description it sounds as if you may not have enough pinchable fat for a CoolSculpting applicator. You may be able to use the flat applicator for the central tummy. One can also consider using RF technology to 'melt' the fat in a more localized manner. We will often switch to VanquishME or Thermi 250 when there is not enough fat to fill the CoolSculpting cup.
CoolSculpt and waist measurement
The picture is very dark but considering your description of you having a waist of 28, I think it is unrealistic to expect that the CoolSculpt process will get you to 23. However, this is said without seeing good pictures of you. It would be very difficult to lose 5 inches and in fact, I would say it is safe to say just about impossible.
See your plastic surgeon for an evaluation to try to estimate what help you can get from CoolSculpt versus the traditional liposuction etc
It is always important to have realistic expectations for any approach to body contouring.
