What CoolSculpting areas would I be a candidate for? (Photo)

Based upon your pictures and the information that you have provided you are an excellent candidate for CoolSculpting of all of the areas that you mentioned. Since you have just recently treated your flanks it would make sense to wait 2-3 months to see how much they improve and then decide if they would benefit from a second treatment. You may also want to consider SculpSure to treat the saddle bags and other areas of non-pinchable fat, if that is a treatment that is available to you. As always, it pays to be treated by an experienced Plastic Surgeon, and one who has the interest and the ability to offer you all of the available treatment options.
Coolsculpting is ideal for small fat deposits on the thighs, arms and love handles. As long as those areas do not have a lot of loose skin, Coolsculpting will work for you.
Thank you for posting your question. Based on your pictures, I would say you are a great candidate for CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting is great for individuals who are looking to get rid of problematic areas, which you have pointed out within your pictures. Expect to see ~20-25% permanent reduction of fat to each area treated. Best, -Justin Harper, MD.

Candidate for CoolSculpting?
Dear CSF108,Thank you for sharing your question and photos. You have correctly identified many of the areas in which CoolSculpting is effective as a non-invasive means for permanent fat removal. Other areas effectively treated with CoolSculpting if needed, would be the inner thigh, abdomen and under the chin. Please remember that with each cycle of CoolSculpting there will only be roughly 25% reduction of the fat deposits in the treated area thus some areas may require two treatments to achieve your desired goals. As the number of cycles goes up and second or third treating of specific areas cost should be given consideration as a comparison to liposuction which can be far more aggressive and remove much more fat at a single session than CoolSculpting. Obviously down time, a surgical procedure vs. non-surgical, discomfort etc. all have to be figured into the equation hence a face to face open and honest discussion with a professional skilled at both liposuction and CoolSculpting will help you to find the best solution for you.
