Coolsculpting underneath the butt?

Is it possible to get coolsculpting underneath your butt to make your butt look bigger? And can you get it on your lower legs and waist?

Coolsculpting treatment areas

Coolsculpting can be done in the area below the buttocks, otherwise known as the “banana roll”, however there needs to be pinchable fat in this area and an in person consult should be performed to make sure you are a candidate. Treating the waist and thigh areas are also options for a Coolsculpting treatment. Treating the lower leg is not something that we have done in our office, however please make sure you have a consult with a certified Coolsculpting site and discuss all options for treatment.

Cool Sculpting Under the Butt

Dear Luckyladybug, We have done the banana roll for many clients and it has marginal results. It truly depends on the how the tissue presents, a good practice will tell you if it's a good option for you. It's designed to reduce the bulge but I doubt you will feel like it makes your bottom look "bigger" to be honest. Outer thighs are an approved area for cool sculpt and the abdomen and love handles as well. Best of Luck.

Thank you for your question. The banana roll is a common area treated with Coolsculpting. The abdomen and flanks can also be contoured with Coolsculpting. An in person consultation to determine candidacy is best. Good luck!

Coolsculpting areas of treatment

The banana roll is a great place to treat with Coolsculpting. Also, with the new CoolMini applicator, areas of the lower leg can be treated.

CoolSculpting Underneath The Butt

CoolSculpting can be performed under the butt in the "banana roll" area in suitable candidates. The fat has to be pliable enough to be pulled into the applicator. The waist and flanks can also be treated. There really isn't a suitable applicator for the lower legs. Please find an experienced provider for an in-person consultation and evaluation to see if the treatment is appropriate for you. Best wishes.

CS under buttocks, waist and thighs is possible

Hi luckyladybug. The amount and orientation of pinchable fat is key to selecting the correct applicators and number of treatments necessary, so an exam is necessary.  There are CS applicators that are indicated for the fat deposit under the buttocks, waist and thighs.  I have never placed CS applicators below the knee.  Be sure to consult with a CS provider with experience and advanced training through Coolsculpting University to get your optimal results. Good luck,
