Thank you for the question,. CoolSculpting has an attachment that is appropriate for the area under the chin. It is not approved for use on the face. It is FDA approved and has applications throughout the body, (arms, abdomen, legs, etc.). Best to see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to evaluate what your options, (liposuction, abdominoplasty, face/necklift), might be.
Can cool sculpting be used under chin and on sides of face? Or is it limited to abdomen, back, buttocks and thighs?

Coolsculpting does not have any applicators that can treat the face. There are applicators that can effectively treat areas such as the thighs, abdomen, back, and arms.
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.
