Anyone who has had to shop for a new bra knows the irritation of turning in front of a dressing room mirror and seeing a bundle of fat pinched beneath a bra. Not only is this sensation uncomfortable, but it can also feel unflattering and frustrating.

Bra fat is a common complaint, and it seems to only get worse with age for many of us. Even though we try to combat stubborn fat bulges with weekly jogging, weight-lifting, and a healthy diet, certain regions are nearly impossible to target with such efforts alone.

Everybody should be able to feel confident in a bra, swimsuit, or tight dress. To help you get there, CoolSculpting for bra fat is a great, non-invasive option to help trim away the fat pouches around bra straps and bikini tops. No surgery or long recovery period necessary –– Coolsculpting, or cryolipolysis, freezes pesky fat cells in those extra-stubborn areas. This fat freezing process allows your body to metabolize and, within the next 1 to 2 months, eventually eliminate unwanted fat cells.

This leaves you with a smoother, slimmer back that you can really enjoy! Dr. Schwarzburg who practices in New York City is a board-certified cosmetic surgeon with plenty of experience carrying out CoolSculpting bra fat procedures. He can help you start your journey to reducing your bra fat.

CoolSculpting for Bra Fat reduction


No matter your gender, age, or background, fat in the back and bra area can take a massive toll on our self-esteem. While many are uncomfortable with their amount of bra fat, few are willing to actually go under the knife to have it removed. Instead, New Yorkers seek out non-invasive, non-surgical approaches to address the fatty pouches on their backs, such as CoolSculpting.

CoolSculpting is one of the most popular non-surgical methods for body contouring. The FDA has approved the use of CoolSculpting in NYC for the upper arms, submental area, thighs, lower buttocks, back, bra flank, and abdomen.

CoolSculpting as a bra fat treatment has gained traction on social media amongst various platforms including Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok. Celebrities such as Kim Kardashian have openly spoken about the procedure, and raved about the results. Over 8,000,000 CoolSculpting treatments for bra fat were administered in 2019, and these numbers only continue to increase, especially in large cities like New York.

Studies have shown 73% patient satisfaction after using cryolipolysis to diminish excess bra fat. People who would rather avoid both the risks and downtime associated with surgeries like liposuction flock to CoolSculpting as a convenient posterior fat removal solution instead. Unless you gain new weight in the future, the underarm fat removed with CoolSculpting is permanently gone. 


Dealing with bulges of fat around the trunk can be frustrating. Fat tends to accumulate around the trunk, which includes the waist, back, and bra region. Various lifestyle factors can contribute to more or less fat in this area – sedentary habits, lack of muscular strength training in the back, and a diet that’s heavy in carbohydrates and excessive calories can all cause more fat to build up. Other factors can be harder to control, such as hormonal fluctuations, natural aging, and underlying medical conditions such as diabetes. All these things cause those bothersome fatty deposits gathering around the bra and armpit area.

Unfortunately, even the healthiest and most active individuals can struggle with irksome bra fat in this area. Posterior fat bulges can show up when you’re wearing a swimsuit, or even just a tight T-shirt. Despite it being a natural part of aging, many of us would much rather do without it.


Cold-based treatments have a long history of both therapeutic and cosmetic uses, even before its use in CoolSculpting for bra fat. Cryolipolysis, or fat freezing, was developed when two doctors from Harvard noticed that eating popsicles caused cheeks to dimple. The conclusion was that fat cells are much more sensitive to cold than other tissues or nerves in the body.

This realization led doctors to develop controlled low temperature application as a fat removal method. Once the fat cells in subcutaneous layers of skin are frozen, they die off and are naturally digested by the lymphatic system of the body.

With these scientific developments came the emergence of CoolSculpting for bra and back fat. Pockets of fat along your bra line can be eliminated using cryolipolysis; fat cells are targeted by temperatures as cold as -11° Celcius, after which they are destroyed and disposed of by the body’s metabolic process over the course of 1 to 2 months. At the end of this period, you are left with fabulous and permanent results! 


Most of us would much rather get on with our lives than spend time pinching our bra fat in the mirror. The good news is: CoolSculpting for bra fat is simpler than you think. As one of the premier medical spas in New York, Skinly Aesthetics will help you embark upon your fat reduction journey.

When you first meet with Dr. Schwarzburg at his private practice in NYC, you will be able to discuss your ideal vision for your torso. With over a decade of experience and expertise, he can help pinpoint a personal treatment plan to address your specific concerns, taking into account your background and medical history. Otherwise healthy individuals who are within 25 pound of their goal weight are the most suitable candidates for CoolSculpting; as it is not as drastic of a fat elimination method as liposuction, remember that CoolSculpting is best aimed at small but persistent bunches of fat.

Once you have covered the basics, you can go ahead and book your CoolSculpting session to get rid of relentless bra fat roll. To ensure an excellent outcome, Dr. Schwarzburg will first mark up the area of concern. The best-fitting applicator will then be applied for 35 to 60 minutes. Using vacuum suction, pockets of fat are pulled into the applicator and met with controlled cold temperatures.

Many people also opt for CoolSculpting to avoid the pain and complexity of surgical intervention. If you’re one of those, you might be worrying about pain during the procedure. Luckily for you, non-invasive treatments exist to circumvent the stress and strain of other types of fat removal. As such, CoolSculpting is not known to be painful. There aren’t any incisions of any kind involved. Apart from some mild discomfort or temporary numbness around the treatment area, you should feel fine during and after the treatment.

One major feature of cryolipolysis for bra fat roll elimination is its subtle and gradual nature. Rather than an instantaneous loss of fat, you will notice these fatty deposits slowly decreasing within the next 1 to 3 months post-procedure. While the changes will become noticeable during this time, it doesn’t stop there; as your body goes on to digest and flush out dead fat cells, you won’t see the ultimate improvements until 4 to 6 months after your CoolSculpting session.

At this time, patients are very likely to be satisfied with their smoother, firmer, and tighter bra area. If you would like to see a greater change in your appearance, you can visit the office again and reassess how many CoolSculpting sessions can get you there.


While you might be eager to jump into cryolipolysis to remove that stubborn fat, take a moment to think about your own medical history. The best way to determine if you are eligible for CoolSculpting for your bra bulges is to talk to Dr. Schwarzburg at his New York City medical cosmetic practice. However, some contraindications may rule you out as a candidate. Patients with neuropathic disorders that make you hypersensitive to cold and cryoglobulinemia, which is a condition in which an abnormal level of cryoglobulins (proteins which thicken in cold temperatures) are present in the blood are not the best candidates for CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting is also not an option if you are pregnant or have a hernia sac in the region of the treatment.

If you live in NYC you know how hard it is to get time off when you have a busy lifestyle without any time to spend recovering from something as drastic as liposuction. But you will be happy to know that CoolSculpting doesn’t require any downtime at all. A long lunch break or extra hour before heading home is all you need to melt away that persistent bra fat. For men and women on the go, this comes as a welcome alternative to hours at the gym or going under the knife.

As for side effects, there are little to none associated with CoolSculpting for bra fat. If you notice a bit of swelling or bruising, remember that this is a normal occurrence – it will go away on its own within a few days. There are some less frequent side effects related to cryolipolysis; paradoxical adipose hyperplasia, for example, results in an increase, rather than decrease of fat cells. If you have concerns, you can always reach out to Dr. Schwarzburg; as a board-certified and experienced physician in New York, he is well trained to prevent adverse effects.

Bra bulge freezing is a non-invasive alternative to surgical fat reduction. People who have opted for CoolSculpting as a bra fat removal method have found substantial improvements in this area, with some studies pointing to mean skinfold thickness decreases of up to 40%.

There is a range of different CoolSculpting applicators in many shapes and sizes, tailored to various specific needs. The one used on you will be determined by the targeted area and amount of fat being dealt with, but some are best suited for the tiny bulges of armpit, back, and bra fat.

CoolMini applicator is typically employed for bra fat because of its modest size and curved design. CoolPetite is commonly used for armpit fat, though some patients may require CoolAdvantage or other mid-sized applicators to achieve their desired result.

Before your cryolipolysis procedure, you will have stubborn pockets of fat in various regions of your back, including bra chub and axillary fat. You will start noticing a difference in the amount of fat present along your back within 1 to 2 months, and continue to see a reduction over the following 4 to 6 months before seeing your final result. Once your fat freezing results have fully settled, these unwanted fat deposits will be gone, leaving you with a sculpted backside that doesn’t get in the way of your self-confidence.

If you wish to see more dramatic results, you can get rid of more fat through additional sessions a few months after your first treatment. 1 to 4 sessions may be necessary to cover the entirety of your bra area, depending on the amount of fat present and your individual response to the treatment. 


The armpits are within the zone that the FDA has approved for the use of CoolSculpting. Armpit fat, also called axillary fat, is something many people feel apprehensive about. Some even go so far as to avoid tank tops or short sleeved shirts so as not to expose this part of their body. You can reinvigorate your sense of self and flatter your body by trying out a CoolSculpting treatment for armpit fat removal. As with any other area where CoolSculpting is used, fat cells by the armpit and bra area can be frozen, killed off, and metabolized.

Patients in studies on the efficacy of axillary fat reported improvements ranging from 1-25% during a 6 month window. Most of them experienced a hefty reduction in the circumference of the arms, ranging from 0.41cm to 0.72cm.


CoolSculpting is an impressive method of bringing about the apoptosis of adipocytes – in plain English, that refers to the death of fat cells. Just like you can use it to tighten up other areas of your body, such as the abdomen, arms, and thighs through cryolipolysis, you can receive a potent treatment against pockets of bra fat just the same way. While liposuction has an immediate effect, CoolSculpting is more subtle than such an extreme surgical method. Nevertheless, it has proven to be an efficient way to get rid of unwanted fat rolls under your bra. Also keep in mind that once the fat has been removed it will not reappear or regrow if you keep a well-balanced lifestyle by staying active and eating right. 

When you go to your favorite medspa in New York for CoolSculpting to treat those relentless bits of pudge, you can expect to see as much as 28% of that fat saying goodbye forever. These fat cells are stored in the subcutaneous part of the body – that means the layer just below the skin, which is notoriously hard to affect using only exercise. For a lot of us, taking care of this fat once and for all can make a substantial difference in our silhouette and body image.

If you’re not quite convinced by word of mouth, rest assured that there have been plenty of studies and surveys portraying the efficacy of CoolSculpting on axillary and posterior fat. In fact, 86% of patients have experienced improvements in their body fat after this treatment and their before and after results speak for themselves. The kind of turnaround you see from cryolipolysis can depend on how many sessions you undergo.  While most patients only need 1 session, you may need up to 4 sessions for optimal results if you are looking to cover a broad section of the back.

If you’ve been struggling with bra fat for a long time, you may be searching for more dramatic improvements. In this case, you can talk to your NYC provider about not just CoolSculpting, but different methods of fat removal. Kybella, for example, is an additional treatment that is often used in smaller, hard to reach areas. These include minimal axillary fat (aka armpit chub), which may not be significant enough to fit a CoolSculpting applicator. Kybella is an FDA-approved injection of sodium deoxycholic acid; this acid gets into your subcutaneous layer and breaks down the fat cells there, much like cryolipolysis does.

The torso that you’ve always dreamed of can be easy to achieve with a little help. CoolSculpting, sometimes in conjunction with other technology, can help sculpt the back and body, so that you can finally see what you pictures look before with the bra roll and after it is gone. The best part is –– it’s permanent! Once bra fat cells are metabolized and eliminated after cryolipolysis, they will not grow back. The only exception to this is additional weight that you may gain after your procedure; new fat cells can still grow in the same areas that were treated. Still, CoolSculpting has helped many finally reach their body goals.


Cosmetic procedures have a reputation for being pretty pricey. However, cryolipolysis can absolutely be worth it to save you the headache of fruitless gym sessions, or the embarrassment of visible fat along your bra line. The cost of CoolSculpting won’t be the same for everyone. First of all, you have to factor in what kind of applicators are used; these range from $500 to $1000 dollars and are chosen based on the area treated and how much fat is to be removed.

Your initial amount of fat vs. what your ultimate target goal is also plays a role in the price. Most patients end up needing a minimum of 2 applicators when going after bra fat; you may also need as many as 4 sessions for your body ambitions to be fulfilled. If you live in NYC, this can add up to a price that is as little as $1000, or as much as $8000. If you have a strong desire to get the perfectly tailored back, this is a small price to pay to get there as the results are permanent and that bra pudge will never come back.


If you’re interested in CoolSculpting for bra fat, you have come to the right place. Cryolipolysis is a safe, and, above all, easy way to ensure a smooth backside and beautifully silhouetted torso. You won’t have to worry about pinching or prodding in the bra area again; over a couple of months, the dead frozen fat cells will be metabolized for good.

To ensure the best effects and safest procedure, this treatment should always be carried out by a board certified cosmetic physician or a medical professional qualified to perform bra fat sculpting.
