CoolSculpting for body and jaw reduction (non surgery by Ultrasound USRF), chin surgery (non surgery or recommend)?
Doctor Answers 4
It is difficult to evaluate which treatments would be ideal for you with out pictures or in person evaluation. Coolsculpting is an excellent form of non-invasive fat reduction for the right patient. Some applicators take 1 or 2 hours but the new advantage applicators take only 35 minutes and have significantly less risk for delayed onset pain (especially in the abdomen). Results are seen at 2 months and typically 1-3 treatments will be necessary on each area to achieve ideal results. The number of treatments depends on the amount of fat there and the patient's goals. There is not downtime and the results can be impressive in the right patient. We also use the Zimmer Z-wave for improved patient comfort and added results. The best candidates are those who are in pretty good shape with areas of stubborn fat that won't go away no matter what.

Getting Great Results With the Right Combination--VASER Hi Def, Botox, Fillers
These are really tough to answer without pictures. I do recommend Botox for masseter reduction, because I believe it will give you the best results. You can get great results with fillers, implants or fat for chin augmentation. As to coolsculpting, you actually might be a candidate (and get better results) with a tummy tuck and contouring procedure like VASER liposuction. VASER liposuction can sculpt and contour the body, giving you contours and definition and results can be seen immediately. 4D HI DEFINITION in combination with ultrasound/RF treatments and fat grafting will help with fat removal, contouring, skin tightening and toning. I suggest you see an expert for a formal consultation. Best, Dr. Emer
Cool-mini and Coolsculpting
A formal in patient consultation is needed but it sounds like you would benefit from a combination of Coolsculpting, Cool-mini for the neck and possible Kybella, and Thermage for skin tightening. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
