You would have to come in for a consultation
It all depends on how thick your fatty layer is. We leave the outer half an inch of fatty tissue untouched when suctioning these areas. If your fatty layer is much thicker than that, yes, you will have improvement. If not, you won't see much change. Your best bet is to come in for a consultation and we can go over all of the options.

Liposuction can remove virtually all layers of fat. Being overly aggressive with liposuction is generally undesirable because results often do not look natural.
The number one dissatisfaction with CoolSculpting is the inability to achieve results.
Best of luck,

Liposuction or Coolsculpting
It"s great to have choices.
- If you want a little improvement with no down-time - Cool Sculpting.
- If you want maximum improvement with some recovery time - small cannula liposuction.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon

Liposuction results are better than cool sculpting results.
