CoolSculpting for buttocks?
All the best! Dr. Clark
CoolSculpting of Liposuction to sculpt the buttocks area.
Thank you for the question. They are two different modalities. CoolSculpting can get a 25% reduction. We have found it to be very effective for the love handles, and other areas. The buttocks is considered an "off label" area. We have found that treating the area twice usually improves the fat cell kill significantly. Other physicians I have spoken to have found similar findings. Liposuction is a surgical modality that is usually more dramatic, with a greater reduction. Again, the CoolSculpting is non invasive, no surgery, no downtime. As always, the modality should be appropriate to the individual patient. Best to see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, who can evaluate for both modalities.
Coolsculpting is an excellent form of non-invasive fat reduction for the right patient. Some applicators take 1 or 2 hours but the new advantage applicators take only 35 minutes and have significantly less risk for delayed onset pain (especially in the abdomen). Results are seen at 2 months and typically 1-3 treatments will be necessary on each area to achieve ideal results. The number of treatments depends on the amount of fat there and the patient's goals. There is not downtime and the results can be impressive in the right patient. We also use the Zimmer Z-wave for improved patient comfort and added results. The best candidates are those who are in pretty good shape with areas of stubborn fat that won't go away no matter what. In office evaluation is necessary to evaluate what procedure would be best for you.

During the consultation, the health care provider will visually assess the fat in order to determine if the person needs debulking or sculpting. The physician will physically assess the orientation of the fat by pinching and feeling it. There is a 20-25% fat reduction in the treated areas. Patients are usually brought back at the 30 days mark to assess their results. At the point, the patient and physician can communicate and determine if additional treatment might be needed for optimum result.
