A SAFE AND EFFECTIVE SOLUTION TO BACK FAT

Back fat in general is uncomfortable, especially when it gets in the way of us wearing our favorite spaghetti straps or showing off the lats we’ve been working so hard for at the gym.

Anyone who wears a bra can attest that a bra that does its job, never sits loosely. Instead, the straps sit snug and cause a common frustration going hand in hand with back and armpit fat: bra bulge.

Even worse, is that a lot of this back fat can be resistant and difficult to reduce through diet and exercise alone. Stubborn back fat is a physical and aesthetic issue that can affect anyone, however, due to innovations of cosmetic medicine, it can be reduced using fat freezing technology requiring no surgery and zero downtime.

With the discovery that fat cells die off at much higher temperatures than any nerves or tissues in the body, researchers developed cryolipolysis, a non-invasive treatment that uses targeted application of cold temperatures to kill resistant fat, allowing the body to naturally metabolize and eliminate the dead fat cells through the lymphatic system, leaving patients with less pudge and a more contoured body. You can rest assured that your CoolSculpting before and after results for back fat treatment will amaze you. CoolSculpting is an FDA approved treatment for non-surgical back fat elimination that will leave you with effective and permanent results.

WHAT CAUSES BRA BULGE?

Fat cells tend to congregate in specific areas of the body. One of the most common areas susceptible to fat accumulation is the trunk of the body, which includes the abdomen, waistline, and back. The visible fat in these areas is classified as subcutaneous fat, which is the fat that lies directly beneath the skin.

Bra bulges and other fatty deposits in the trunk are caused by various factors such as a sedentary lifestyle, unhealthy eating habits or muscle underdevelopment. Studies show that carbohydrates and refined sugars may lead to an increase in abdominal fat.  In addition, hormonal fluctuations and changes in estrogen levels can affect the way that your body stores fat, regardless of how active you are. The bottom line is that back fat can affect anyone at any age, and can’t always be fully controlled by natural means.

HOW DO I GET RID OF THE FAT UNDER MY BRA LINE WITH COOLSCULPTING?

CoolSculpting NYC is a non-invasive treatment utilizing fat freezing technology to target-reduce unwanted pockets of fat around the back and bra line. The technical name for fat freezing is cryolipolysis and works through the use of a handheld vacuum applicator which is placed on the area of concern to suction in the fat and lower its temperature to -11° Celcius. This allows the subcutaneous back fat cells to be frozen while leaving healthy tissues free from damage.

Once the fat cells are frozen and crystallized, they shrink, break down, and die, and are then naturally dispelled by the body’s metabolic processes. The fat freezing process itself takes only 35 minutes, while the body works for up to 4 months to metabolize the now-dead fat cells. Permanent body contouring results can be observed from just a single treatment.

HOW DOES COOLSCULPTING WORK ON ARMPIT FAT?

Using tailored CoolSculpting applicators, your armpit fat will be brought to its freezing temperature, causing the fat cells to freeze and self-destruct. They are then metabolized by the body within a few weeks to several months and you will be able to enjoy your newly sculpted back.

When it comes to shaping your body through natural means, some areas may react faster than others, leaving you with unwanted pouches of fat. CoolSculpting has grown to become a popular topic of discussion on social media and amongst the beauty community due to its efficacy and its major selling point: no surgery, no downtime, and permanent results. Before CoolSculpting, getting rid of stubborn back fat was a matter of either intense exercising and diet planning, or surgical procedures for fat elimination, such as liposuction.

While liposuction is effective in its ability to permanently get rid of bra bulge and armpit fat, it is very invasive and comes with a long list of possible risks and side effects, and requires 2 – 4 weeks of surgical downtime.

The amazing thing about fat freezing is that it removes excess fat permanently without the risks or downtime associated with plastic surgery. This procedure has become the gold standard for non-invasive fat reduction from New York to Los Angeles, allowing patients to consider a non-surgical method to eliminate their fat when traditional ways of losing fat have failed.

Is CoolSculpting underarm fat worth it?
CoolSculpting underarm fat is non-invasive, quick (it can be done on a lunch break), painless, and permanent, which is why it is deemed the gold standard of non-surgical fat reduction. For most people, the results and simple nature of fat cooling are absolutely worth it.

WHO CAN HAVE COOLSCULPTING TREATMENTS FOR BACK FAT?

CoolSculpting works best on patients who lead a healthy lifestyle but are frustrated with resistant fat collections around the bra strap and back. For the best results, a patient should be within 30 pounds of their ideal weight. If you are pregnant or have a condition such as cryoglobulinemia, cold agglutinin disease, or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria, that makes you more sensitive to cold temperatures, you are not a candidate for CoolSculpting back fat.

WHAT IS A BACK FAT FREEZING PROCEDURE LIKE?

Before your actual armpit fat freezing journey can begin, you will first have a consultation with Dr. Schwarzburg with whom you will work together to create a detailed treatment plan based on your overall goals. During this time you will be discussing what you want out of your CoolSculpting fat treatment as well as your medical history to confirm that you are a candidate, as Dr. Schwarzburg gives you an honest assessment of your body.

When it is time to proceed with the treatment, Dr. Schwarzburg will place a protective gel pad on your skin and apply a CoolSculpting applicator tailored to your area of concern, that is the appropriate size and shape to produce the best possible outcome for your sculpted back. The region is then cooled down to its fat freezing temperature to destroy subcutaneous fat in your back, under your arms, and around your bra straps.

This process takes 35 – 45 minutes per applicator, meaning that depending on how many applicators you will need to cover the entirety of your treatment area, your controlled cooling session may last up to 2 or 3 hours. As your fat freezes, you may experience minor discomfort, which turns into numbness within minutes.

After the session is complete, the treated areas are massaged to break down the crystallized fat cells. You will then be able to resume normal activities immediately.

How long is the CoolSculpting for the back procedure?

The entire procedure for back fat reduction will last 35 minutes to several hours depending on how many applicators are used during your session.

DOES COOLSCULPTING FOR THE BACK HURT?

At the beginning of the freezing process and during the post-treatment massaging, you may feel some discomfort and tugging. This will pass as the area becomes numb. Once complete, you may experience some mild pain as your skin “thaws”.

WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME AND AFTERCARE FOR COOLSCULPTING FOR BACK FAT?

One of the major benefits of CoolSculpting back fat treatment is that it involves zero downtime. You can continue with your daily routine without any limitations right after your treatment.

ARE THERE ANY RISKS AND SIDE EFFECTS FOR COOLSCULPTING ARMPIT FAT?

Armpit fat freezing comes with virtually no risks though some patients experience mild pain, stinging, and swelling after their treatment. These side effects typically subside within hours to a few days. In extremely rare cases, fat cells can re-appear resulting in more volume in your back. This phenomenon is called paradoxical adipose hyperplasia and is very uncommon. In order to avoid risks and complications, it is important to schedule your appointment with a board-certified cosmetic physician like Dr. Schwarzburg, who understands the ins and outs of the treatment and has extensive knowledge of human anatomy.

HOW LONG DOES COOLSCULPTING BACK TAKE TO WORK?

You should start seeing results within 1 – 3 months after your procedure, though your body continues to flush out the dead fat cells for 4 months after your initial treatment.

WHAT ARE THE BEFORE AND AFTER COOLSCULPTING RESULTS FOR ARMPITS, BACK FAT, AND BRA FAT?

Before your cryolipolysis, you will have stubborn pockets of fat in various regions of your back, including bra bulges and axillary fat. Once your fat freezing results have settled, these unwanted fat deposits will be gone, leaving you with a sculpted body that doesn’t get in the way of your self-confidence. You can rest assured that your back fat before and after treatment will be permanently reduced.

  • How long do CoolSculpting back results last?
    The fat cells that were eliminated using tailored CoolSculpting applicators will be permanently gone. However, fat freezing is not a tool for weight loss, meaning that if a patient goes through a substantial amount of weight gain post-treatment, new fat cells can develop and return to the same areas on your back.
  • Does fat return after CoolSculpting back flanks?
    The fat eliminated after CoolSculpting on the flanks will be permanently gone without any CoolSculpting fat redistribution. However, it will not stop you from regaining weight afterward.
  • Does axillary fat come back after CoolSculpting?
    Once axillary fat cells are metabolized and eliminated after cryolipolysis, they will not grow back. Additional weight gain can cause new fat cells to grow in the same areas that were treated, as this treatment is not designed for overall weight loss.
  • How to optimize CoolSculpting results
    It is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle after your fat cooling to ensure that you don’t gain more fat in the treated area.

HOW MUCH BACK FAT CAN COOLSCULPTING REMOVE?

This back fat freezing procedure is designed to target-eliminate fat cells throughout 1 – 4 sessions. During each session, 25% – 28% of treated fat is permanently eliminated. The results also depend on maintaining a healthy lifestyle. You may not see a great reduction in fat if you gain weight after your initial treatment.

IS THE RUSSIAN LIP FILLER PERMANENT?

On average, the cost of cryolipolysis on the back ranges from $500 – $1000 per applicator. For most patients, a minimum of 2 applicators are needed during 1 session, with up to a total of 4 sessions to achieve their desired result. This can bring the total price to $1000 to $8000.

The total cost of your back CoolSculpting depends on the following:

  • The size of the treatment area is different for everyone, meaning that a patient may require anywhere from 1 – 6 applicators for a single session.
  • The number of applicators is based on the size of the treatment area.
  • The type of applicator used can affect the cost. CoolMini applicators, for example, are typically higher in price than CoolAdvantage applicators.
  • The level of expertise of your provider matters, as a board-certified physician with extensive knowledge and experience, will provide you with the best possible outcomes.
  • The geographical location may affect the cost, in that larger cities are often more expensive than rural areas.
  • Package deals may be offered to patients who are looking to purchase multiple sessions to effectively achieve their desired results.

WHAT ARE THE BRA FAT COOLSCULPTING PROS AND CONS?

The thing that people love about cryolipolysis for bra fat is that it is non-surgical, non-invasive, and quick to perform with zero recovery time. The procedure is also painless and permanent, provided that you stick to a health-conscious lifestyle. Fat cooling is not meant for everyone and is mostly designed for healthy patients who are within 30 pounds of their ideal weight. Results are also not instantaneous and are typically visible within 1 – 4 months.

CAN I COMBINE COOLSCULPTING BACK WITH OTHER TREATMENTS?

This cooling technology can be combined with a number of other treatments depending on the result you are looking to achieve. Many patients combine this treatment with Kybella, which is an injectable deoxycholic acid solution that destroys fat cells upon injection. Kybella is used on patients who have a small amount of fat that cannot be reached by a CoolAdvantage applicator. In addition, some patients may also opt for Secret RF or Fraxel, which are great options to tighten surrounding skin for the best results.

Non-invasive fat reduction vs. Liposuction
Liposuction is one of the most common ways to eliminate fat cosmetically. Unfortunately, it does come with the many risks and side effects associated with surgical procedures. In addition, the instant fat reduction can cause skin laxity, leaving patients feeling dissatisfied. However, results are instant, which is a plus for many. Non-invasive fat reduction is pain-free and comes with limited risks and side effects. While results are not instant, many patients prefer taking the non-surgical route to eliminate their axillary fat.

IS BACK FAT REMOVAL WITH COOLING SAFE?

CoolSculpting lower back is FDA approved and a safe and effective method for fat reduction. It comes with limited risks and side effects and zero downtime provided it is performed by a board-certified physician or another experienced medical professional with an understanding of how fat cooling works.

WHAT SHOULD I KEEP IN MIND FOR BRA BULGE FREEZING?

Many patients wonder, does bra fat sculpting work? Bra bulge freezing is a treatment ideal for patients who are healthy and in overall good shape with resistant pockets of unwanted fat around their bra line and backs. For optimal results, 1 – 4 sessions may be needed and each session may require 2 – 4 appropriately fitting applicators. Results are not instant and will be seen within 1 – 4 months post-treatment. This procedure should only be carried out by a skilled and experienced medical professional to ensure safe and effective execution.

TAKEAWAY

Back fat reduction using CoolSculpting technology is a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment FDA approved for its safety and efficacy. Each patient is different, meaning that there is no “one size fits all” approach to the number of applicators or the number of sessions needed to accomplish the desired result. There is no downtime and results can be observed within 1 – 4 months after the initial appointment.
