The short answer to your question is yes. but a physical exam is needed to make any formal recommendations. Coolsculpting is quite effective particularly in fit patients with focal trouble spots. You will first begin to see results as early as 3-4 weeks and then continually out 3-4 months after treatment. The process takes time due to the nature in which CoolSculpting works. Once your fat cells are frozen (dead) they are excreted through your lymphatic system. This is a natural process and your body is already fully equipped to handle the destroyed fat cells and remove them.
Coolsculpting and upper back
Coolsculpting is approved and very effective for
treatment of the upper back, or “bra fat.” Any place where the applicator can be
safely applied the fat will be reduced from pre-treatment levels.
The short answer is that as long as you are a candidate (based on initial consultation and examination) then it's certainly an option. The upper back or "bra fat" area is one that we routinely treat with CoolSculpting and with good success.
This is a great area for Coolsculpting. It works very nicely provided you don't have any skin laxity. Good luck, Dr. M
Cool sculpting works great on the back
Cool sculpting works really well on the back with typically less pain than the abdomen. The skin on the back is thicker and also tends to retract really well. Please see a coolsculpting expert for a consultation.
Back Fat and Coolsculpting
Back fat is a very popular area to perform Coolsculpting. It works extremely well and my patients love it since there is nothing else that works as well with only one hour! Best, Dr. Green
If you can squeeze it we can freeze it!
We can treat any of area of the body that has enough fat to be "sucked" into the hand piece. Make sure to visit a board certified plastic surgeon or someone who has experience doing off label areas of the body. In a lot of cases coolsculpting will work better than lipo in those areas. Good luck!
CoolSculpting For The Upper Back
CoolSculpting is FDA approved for use on the abdomen, love handles and thighs. However, we can use it off label anywhere that there is treatable fat. This includes the arms, back, and bra fat area. If you have enough fat that can be pulled into the suction based applicator, or if it is a large enough area to where the non-suction based applicator can be used then the area can be treated. Make sure you have an in-person consultation and evaluation by an experienced CoolSculpting physician in your area who can determine whether the treatment is appropriate for you. Hope this helps answer your question.

CoolSculpting for fat removal of the upper in our NYC practice
Yes. Some patients of mine have received treatment for upper back fat. In women, the infrabra fat, or the bulge immediately below the bra, is commonly requested to be treated. Our NYC practice has all the applicators that can be used with the CoolSculpting device from Zeltiq. As long as there is a localized bulge, that fits into one of the applicators, then CoolSculpting can be effectively used for most patients.
