Am I a good candidate for coolsculpting?

You will not lose 10 lbs via Coolsculpting!
If you want fat removal (especially pounds worth, not just a bit of contouring), see one or more ABPS-certified plastic surgeons for some balance and potential other recommendations.
Dr. Kane was right on with Mark Twain's quote (restated here for non-surgical fat removal procedures): "Beware the doctor who says he's got the only and best treatment for your concern."
Consider what ultrasonic liposuction can accomplish with one operation; don't just go with what sounds "easy" and "non-surgical." These options all work, but usually deliver less than their promise. If that's what you want, then by all means--just also save up for the liposuction procedure that really sounds like it would be best for you. Best wishes! Dr. Tholen
Coolsculpting is an excellent way to eliminate unwanted fat. Photos would be helpful. You are close to your ideal weight. It's important to know coolsculpting doesn't necessairly help lose weight on the scale but it will make you look and feel better. I would recommend a consultation first and foremost to discuss medical history.
Best of luck!

The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.

Coolsculpting Versus Liposuction
Are You A Good Candidate For CoolSculpting
Is CoolSculpting (or Liposuction) best for me?
"To a man with a hammer, everything looks like a nail" - Mark Twain
All patients have collections of genetically distributed fat that they cannot exercise or diet off. If your desires are for a very limited amount of fat reduction, CoolSculpting (CS) may be adequate for your needs. While surgical, Liposuction may be necessary to fulfill your expectations for more that a few hundred grams of fat reduction and contouring.
I recommend you obtain a second opinion consultation from a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, well versed in non-, minimally invasive and surgical options so you will obtain your best evaluation and least biased recommendations.
I wish you well.
Coolsculpting and selecting the right candidate
Coolsculpting is a fabulous procedure but the only way to see if you are a candidate is through an in person consultation. From your description and the one of the treatments selected, it sounds like you are on the right track. If you are concerned you should go for a consultation with another physician in a different location for a second opinion. Please let us know how your procedure goes.
