CoolSculpting has FDA approval for fat reduction since 2010. CoolSculpting freezes the fat cells. Fat cells are more susceptible to damage by freezing than the other cells, (nerve, vessel, bone, etc.), around them. The fat cells die via a process called apoptosis, (programmed cell death). The number of fat cells are therefore reduced. This happens over a period of time, so the body is not overwhelmed with dead fat cells. The body will take these cells up, process them and excrete them, just as any other cell. The remnants are filtered through the liver, and then excreted eventually via stool. Knees can be a challenge with any modality. CoolSculpting has a specific applicator that has been used in this area with good results. We have had good experience with the skin snapping back. Each individual is different. See an experienced CoolSculpting practice, they will determine if you are a candidate. Moreover, would also consider seeing a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, who can give advice on both CoolSculpting and Liposuction.
What is the best procedure for fat on the inner knee?
Doctor Answers 10
Fat on the Inner Knee
An in person consultation is needed to determine if this can be treated non-surgically through Ultrashape or one of the new applicators coming out from Coolsculpting or surgically though liposuction.
You would be better off with liposuction of this area
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.
best of luck!

Liposculpture is a marketing term for small-cannula, small amount fat removal, which is certainly the case for precision improvements in this area. Liposuction/liposculpture can often be performed under local anesthesia, reducing procedure cost.
Either way, it's more about the surgeon and less about the machine. Best regards! Dr. Tholen

Best technique for fat sculpting the inner knee
It is difficult to offer you an idea of what is best without examining your thigh and inner knee appearance. Therefore it is best to consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who does all procedures for body contouring so you may receive your best assessment and recommendations.
- CoolSculpting for very small amounts of fat reduction in a small area.
- Liposuction for a greater amount of fat with contouring over a larger area to include just below the knee and upward to the inner thigh and front thigh.
- I have found any of the laser, ultrasound and radio-frequency devices to promise more than they can deliver and recommend against it.
I hope this is helpful. All the best!
