CoolSculpting for fat removal from knees and calves.
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. Calves may be more difficult. See an experienced CoolSculpting practice, they will determine if you are a candidate. Would also consider seeing a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, who can give advice on both CoolSculpting and Liposuction.

Coolsculpting has a new cool fit applicator which is approved for the inner thighs. There is no applicator that has been specifically designed for the knees or calves. The company is working on new adaptors so in the near future there may be one. For the best cosmetic results please consult a board certified dermatologist with experience in coolsculpting.
