Coolsculpting

Hi,

Coolsculpting is not indicated for this area. I recommend talking to a board certified plastic surgeon regarding other treatments available .

Coolsculpting for peri areolar reduction

Thanks for your question. I would not recommend using coolsculpting as a method of breast reduction on or around the nipple. This is off label use of the product and there are many other good methods of breast/areola reduction out there.  Talk to a board certified plastic surgeon in your area to see what would be best for you.  Good luck!

Can cool sculpting be used as peri-areolar reduction?

Thank you for the question. The applicators designed by Zeltiq are for localized spot reduction and are not intended for breast reduction. My recommendation would be to consult a board certified plastic surgeon with experience in breast reduction surgery. Best of luck.

Can cool sculpting be used as peri-areolar reduction?

Thank you for your question. CoolSculpting can only treat target areas and cannot be used for peri-areolar reduction. If you are looking into procedures, I would recommend visiting a board certified plastic surgeon for a consultation. This way, you can explain your concerns and find an option that fits you best.
