Coolsculpting Mini (or other non-surgical solution) for Mons Pubis area?

Are there non-surgical options for reduction of fat in the mons pubis area that have been successful? A technician at my plastic surgeon's office indicated coolscuplting mini may work well.

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 very important to determine if you are the right candidate for this procedure.

CoolMini Reduces Mon Pubis

Since the advent of Zeltiq's CoolMini applicator, we have been able to treat a number of smaller areas successfully with CoolSculpting, including the mons pubis. Up to 20% to 30% of fat can be eliminated per session. It takes between three and four months before you can appreciate your final results. Please consult a board-certified dermatologist to see if you are a good candidate for CoolMini.

Mons pubis fat pad removal

I do think the CoolMini would be a good idea for this area if the fat would be pinchable enough to fit in the applicator handpiece. Other treatments would include Kybella and Thermitight. Make sure you use Zimmer Z Wave for even better results after Coolsulpting.

Coolsculpting is effective for Mons

Hi BWHouston.  In my experience, coolsculpting is effective in the mons pubis.  The selection of which applicator to use is determined during the examination and is based upon the extent of excess fat.  The mons pubis is an area that has significant fibrous tissue that contributes to a full appearance, and unfortunately may not respond to coolsculpting. Be sure to seek treatment with a specialist with advanced training (known as Coolsculpting university training).  Good luck,
