CoolSculpting, Vaser, traditional Liposuction and other body contouring alternatives
Thanks for sharing your photo.
Any incision to the skin will create a scar, whether it is Vaser or traditional liposuction. Vaser is a combination approach of powered fat destruction and liposuction and maybe too much for primary lipocontouring in a 19 year old.
Consider lipocontouring on multiple areas of the body. CoolSculpting, while "tried and true", is very limited and may not be cost effective and only provide a limited area of improvement with each applicator placement.
It is best to consult with a well versed, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for what is recommended for YOU.
All the best!
CoolSculpting causes permanent fat loss
Lipo or CoolSculpting for back fat?
I think your age is an important consideration. Both CoolSculpting in overlapping treatments and carefully performed liposuction could give you the results you seek, but I think at your age I might recommend the safer, non scarring, and effective CoolSculpting. If you do decide to pursue liposuction because it will give immediate results in one or possibly two treatments, I would recommend you find a plastic surgeon or dermatologist who is skilled in multiple modalities including Vaser which uses ultrasound and would be helpful if the fat on your back is fibrous.
All the best,

coolsculpting would be great for bra area but lipo will give you a larger area at one time
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!
Back Fat and Coolsculpting
Coolsculping is a fabulous machine for upper back fat. It is a great non-surgical way to get rid of this area without scars. Please consult an experienced board certified dermatologist for an in office consultation.
Coolsculpting versus Vaser
I was the first plastic surgeon in Houston to bring on Coolsculpting into their practice to offer patients a choice. I have noticed that my Vaser/Slimlipo patients obtain better results due to the skin tightening and continuous fat reduction in the treatment areas versus Coolsculpting. I have, however, noticed that if patients are open to doing multiple treatments in a region with Coolsculpting with some overlapping of the treatment areas, I can achieve some impressive results.
I would recommend that you visit a place that offers both so you can truly have an informed consultation and help you make a decision.
