Question about Coolsculpting for lower abdomen. Am I a good candidate?
Thanks for your question. Coolsculpting works well on stubborn pockets of fat and there is no downtime following this procedure. However, not everyone is an ideal candidate. To determine if you are an ideal candidate an in person consultation is needed. Please see a board certified plastic surgeon.
CoolSculpting for your lower abdomen
An examination would have to be done in person, but judging by your photo you seem to be a good candidate for CoolSculpting. We have treated many patients with athletic builds with great success! While you may not be able to achieve the traditional "pinch" of CoolSculpting's original Legacy applicators, there are new and improved methods we use to treat athletic builds. Texas is a little ways away from Michigan, so be sure to find a certified CoolSculpting technician near you that uses CoolSmooth Pro or CoolAdvantage. Best of luck to you!
Coolsculpting is an excellent way to eliminate unwanted fat. It generally works very well on athletic individuals. By the looks of your photos you look like you would be an excellent candidate, however I would recommend a consultation first and foremost to discuss medical history.

Coolsculpting works well when there is enough laxity of skin and underlying fat to be able to be treated with the applicators. You can easily expect 25% fat reduction with initial treatment, but it will take 1 to 3 months to see the result. With limited photo it is hard to tell but you seem to be a good candidate.
Sitting on the fence.. Coolsculpting vs Sculpsure
OK, if you want overall reduction with minimal downtime, SculpSure... this takes 25 minutes to do, and no limits on gym.
The best treatment for you will depend on your body shape, lifestyle and expectations.
All the best

CoolSculpting for lower abdomen
From the photo you have provided, it seems as though you would be a good candidate for CooSculpting of the lower abdomen. What you have described is actually what an ideal candidate is. Someone who is close to their ideal body weight, works out but has stubborn areas that do not seem to improve with lifestyle choices. As far as being out of the gym for too long, you need not worry. Most patients resume their regular activities immediately following the procedure (even going to the gym - depending on what you do at the gym). For the best advice, I recommend consulting a physician who offers this procedure.
