Do I have to wait 3 weeks if it was clear the pads were not placed in the designated area?

It can be done in the same areas next to each other to treat larger areas.
However, it would be best to discuss with the doctor
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
best of luck!
Re-treating overlap area with coolsculpting for bra fat
Coolsculpting is a great procedure for bra fat. If you are going to overlap a previously treated area I would recommend waiting 4 months to assess the area before re-treament.
Many patients require multiple treatments if they have larger areas to treat or of a heavier BMI. A slight overlap is permitted on the same day, but treatments on top of one another require that wait period. Often patients come back 2 or 3 months later to get additional reduction.
Picking the right applicator also matters. There are currently 5 different CoolSculpting applicators (pads) that are designed to treat different body areas.
Back and bra fat are treated by a number of practices but are technically off label.
Some other body areas have nerves too close to the skin, so until we see new studies and applicators, the under chin and under arm area are not candidate areas for CoolSculpting.
