Top Three Ways to Lose Belly Fat and Keep it Off With

Coolsculpting belly fat removal


Age, genetics and lifestyle are major contributing factors to developing unwanted fat bulges around the body. As we get older our metabolism slows down and it gets harder to burn the excess pounds that we accumulate. Genetics plays a major role in how we look and how adipose tissue gets distributed. A lot of people are genetically predisposed to have unsightly fat pouches in all the wrong places – under the chin, around the bra or arms or in the back. Research has also demonstrated that our lifestyle plays a definitive role in the way that we look. If we stay active and engaged throughout our lives it helps with burning extra calories that would otherwise get deposited in all the wrong places. 

Back fat distribution is especially treacherous and can be hard to handle despite your full commitment to a healthy and active lifestyle and maintaining excellent physical shape. It tends to gather under the armpits, along the bra area, where it’s informally known as “bra bulge”, and lower back where it’s casually called “love handles”. 

If you feel that you have to endure unattractive back fat and feel insecure in how your clothes fit you, then non-surgical back fat reduction with CoolSculpting can be an excellent, clinically proven solution that has earned accolades in the world of aesthetic medicine. Dr. Schwarzburg is one of the few doctors in New York who is both board-certified and can perform this revolutionary technology to permanently eliminate unwanted back fat. 

CoolSculpting back fat has made it possible for doctors to target-reduce resistant fat collections along the posterior side of the body. This revolutionary technology allows to razor focus on isolated body and facial areas via non-invasive controlled cryolipolysis. The advantages over invasive surgical procedures are numerous including no downtime, gradual and permanent results, and no side effects. 

If your frustration with the back fat has reached a level where professional help and intervention are needed then CoolSculpting back fat freezing treatment is an option that you may strongly consider. Once you proceed with CoolSculpting contouring of the back it’s critical to see a fat reduction specialist with an understanding of nitty-gritty details involved and has perfected the procedure for you to achieve the best outcomes. Dr. Schwarzburg successfully treats patients in New York who suffer from resistant back fat and has been doing so for over a decade, world-known for his expertise in body and facial restoration and rejuvenation. 

How does CoolSculpting work on back fat?

You may have noticed that it’s nearly impossible to lose fat in hard-to-reach places like submental region (double chin), inferior anterior abdomen (belly pooch) and back fat despite having an elaborate diet and exercise routine. It is not uncommon that as you adjust your lifestyle habits and lose overall body weight the pockets of fat where it matters most to you stay unfazed. Classic regions of stubborn fat accumulation include mommy’s belly, back fat love handles secondary to the post-pregnancy state in women, and the beer belly secondary to a sedentary lifestyle in men. Similarly, the upper and lower back are notorious for retaining clusters if fatty tissue post-multi-pound weight loss. 

CoolSculpting back fat procedure is ideal for men and women seeking to spot reduce resistant fat deposits despite adjusting their diet and lifestyle. CoolSculpting for the back utilizes innovative fat-freezing technology that allows to selectively spot-reduce adipocytes while leaving surrounding tissues intact. After adipose tissue gets subjected to very low subzero temperatures, it undergoes a process known as aseptic apoptosis which induces fat cells to involute without spilling their contents into the intercellular matrix. This entire biochemical process is also known as cryolipolysis and CoolSculpting cryolipolysis technology has been approved for over a decade to treat back fat. This scientific approach to fat reduction was invented by Harvard researchers who observed that when children suck on the popsicles the children’s cheeks get characteristic cheek dimples, secondary to the freezing of fat in the area. This led to the realization that it is possible to selectively target fat all over the body and face, and back fat is one of the most sought after places to target freeze fat application. 

CoolSculpting applicators kill off fatty tissue in the back through a controlled freezing process and are then metabolized and flushed out through the lymphatic system over a period of 2-4 months. Dr. Schwarzburg likes to remind his patients from New York that the body contouring process involving back fat is gradual, taking up to a few months to finalize, resulting in permanent elimination of the treated fat without any need to undergo liposuction or other surgeries to see optimal results. This is the primary benefit of this revolutionary technology that allows you to melt fat like “banana rolls” and other fat bulges on the back for good without any risks associated with invasive surgery. 


The CoolSculpting process for back fat is seamless when performed by highly recognized experts in the medical field. While consulting with Dr. Schwarzburg you will review your overall goals for body contouring and discuss with him all advantages and pitfalls to get your desired body proportions with CoolSculpting back fat procedure. Dr. Schwarzburg will perform a thorough physical examination at his private medical practice in NYC to establish the optimal plan for your body with targeted CoolSculpting back fat treatment, and assess which regions of your back need cryolipolysis the most. 

The actual CoolScupting back fat procedure consists of an applicator placed on the previously demarcated skin and applying strong negative pressure to suck in the skin and underlying subcutaneous back fat. The metal plates then cool the adipose tissue to the point where the fat cells get crystallized and then destroyed by the body’s own immune system. This entire process usually takes 35-60 minutes depending on the size and shape of applicators used. 

Since CoolSculpting application for back fat is completely non-invasive, with no stitches, cuts or surgery of any kind, patients can immediately return to normal life in New York without any restrictions. Some may experience some tenderness in the area secondary to strong suction, but this feeling is transient and resolves in 1-2 days and may be alleviated with over the counter pain killers. 


Adipocyte removal after CoolSculpting back treatment is gradual and can vary based on factors including your intrinsic metabolic rate, activity level and treatment area. Regions with more vascular supply tend to respond faster versus areas that receive less of the blood supply. CoolSculpting back fat treatment results typically become evident in approximately 1-2 months, but may take up to 4-6 months to fully settle and for the dead adipocytes to be flushed away. Since the results are permanent, the pockets of fat in the back won’t come back as long as you adhere to a healthy diet and workout routine. If you live in New York keeping an active lifestyle is fairly easy to maintain and to keep the fat off your body.


You are a good candidate in NYC for fat freezing of your posterior backside if you have well-delineated fat bulges that don’t budge regardless of your hard work in the gym and good eating habits. In some instances the culprit for having the unsightly and unattractive backside is purely genetics, which dictates how your fat gets distributed. And because it is nearly impossible to spot reduce fat through weight loss the only viable options that remain are liposuction or CoolSculpting, which both allow targeted back fat removal. 


Unline invasive plastic surgery which involves general anesthesia, prolonged recovery time, skin sagging and many other unpleasant and dangerous complications, CoolSculpting back fat is completely non-surgical and is associated with minor sequela such as redness, tenderness, and minor swelling for a few days after the procedure. During the CoolSculpting procedure you will experience mild tugging and pulling sensation in the area where the applicator is attached, followed by mild numbness of the skin up to 7 days. 


One of the major appealing factors for CoolSculpting fat freezing process is that fat melting process is gradual meaning that you will not have to go through drastic body transformation and a possiblitiy of having saggy skin in the treated area, which is common with surgical procedures. Instead the skin will adapt to the underlying fat being removed by shrinking and contracting, so that you never have to deal with unattractive skin laxity.


For small pockets of bothersome adipose tissue such as under the chin, the bra area and around arms cryolipolysis can be complemented with Kybella injections. Deoxycholic acid that is the main component of Kybella targets fat cells by causing them to burst and rupture. CoolSculpting is usually used to debulk larger areas of fat accumulation be it in the back fat, chin fat, or stomach fat and then Kybella is used to clean up any remaining fat cells. Per Dr. Schwarzburg who practices cosmetic surgery in NYC this dual treatment approach has significantly changed the fat elmination paradigms by allowing doctors to utilize both modalities that each have successful clinical applications.  

It’s important to recognize that after CooSculpting induced fat cell apoptosis is complete you may develop minimal skin laxity over the treated areas of your back. There are various treatments that can be employed to tighten and lift the sagging skin. PDO thread lift is one of the popular procedures and addresses skin ptosis by inserting collagen generating sutures under the skin. Over time threads dissolve and the newly generated collagen continues to maintain skin tightness. Another effective treatment to address loose skin is Secret RF microneedling which stimulates collagen production via radiofrequency energy deposition in the dermal layers of the skin. 


Prior to advent of CoolSculpting fat freezing technology liposuction was the only way to address unwanted excess body fat. Surgical fat removal still remains effective especially when patients desire immediate results with large amount of fat removed. However, it has gradually fallen out of favor because of the numerous and serious side-effects. Liposuction is associated with significant downtime, bruising, fluid retention and scarring. Because large amount of fat is instantaneously removed it leads to skin drooping and laxity in the treatment area, which can be permanent. All of these nuisances cause patient frustration and dissatisfaction. On the other hand, CoolSculpting back fat results are equivocal to invasive liposuction with the added benefits of no downtime or side-effects. 


If you live in NYC and search “how much is CoolSculpting for back fat?” you will see that the results show a range of prices. To properly assess the total cost of CoolSculpting for back fat removal it is necessary to accurately assess patients’ body contouring and cosmetic goals. 

A variety of different factors play the role in determining the final price including the number applicators and sessions needed to achieve satisfactory outcomes which are measured in the volume of melted back fat.

Typically, the upper back and bra areas fit nicely into CoolMini or CoolPetite applicators and range $600-1000 per single cycle. For back fat deposits around the waist or flank area, CoolAdvantage applicators can be deployed which cover two to three times the surface area compared to CoolMini and CoolPetite. Hence, CoolAdvantage applicator can cost anywhere from $600 to $1600 per single session. The seamless and effortless process of CoolScupting procedure with immediate resumption to normal life is well worth the cost for all patients in New York and surrounding suburbs who are considering this gold standard in non-invasive back fat reduction.


Clinical studies and research conclusively demonstrate that just a single CoolSculpting back fat treatment effectively removes up to 30% of fat in the targeted area over a period of 90-120 days. Since fat freezing is intended to target hard to get rid of fat bulges, a single cycle of CoolSculpting is often all that is needed for some patients with a little pouch of back fat. However, to maximize and enhance CoolSculpting results patients also opt to continue with cryolipolysis treatments and frequently get anywhere from 2-4 total treatments for best body contouring outcomes. 

In the end, the revolutionary CoolSculpting technology effectively eradicates fat for life without the risks associated with invasive plastic surgery allowing patients to regain their confidence and self-esteem about how they look and feel.


Since CoolSculpting is a completely non-surgical procedure there are no risks involved without any need for downtime so that you can continue your life uninterrupted. A major difference when compared to invasive liposuction surgery is that the process of removing crystallized cells after fat freezing involves body’s own machinery such as kidney, liver and lymphatics. Immune system’s macrophages absorb dead fat cells and carry them through the blood vessels and lymphatics to liver and kidney to be further excreted from the body. This entirely natural process takes anywhere from 1-3 months to finalize and allows your body and skin to adapt to these gradual changes. Unlike liposuction, CoolSculpting’s gradual fat reduction ensures that the skin has enough time to adjust to new body contours, so that patients don’t have to worry about developing loose and hanging skin around the back. 


The transformative power of CoolSculpting has long been acknowledged by all plastic and cosmetic surgery societies both in the United States and on the local level in New York. Universally, CoolSculpting results for back fat treatment bring about satisfaction in your physical appearance as well as psychological effects of boosted self-esteem and confidence. Not only do you get your body to go through a visible transformation you also serve as inspiration for friends and family members who may be struggling from same body image issues. 

Choosing your CoolSculpting provider is important once you realize that not all treatments are created equally. When you start working with Dr. Schwarzburg you will have a CoolSculpting expert who has undergone rigorous training to become one of the top CoolSculpting providers in NYC. It is critical that you have realistic expectations about your fat freezing treatment and what it can and can’t achieve. Dr. Schwarzburg consistently gets rave feedback from his patients for the excellent body contouring results. 


Numerous clinical trials and research have convincingly demonstrated that CoolSculpting’s innovative fat freezing technology eliminates diet and exercise resistant fat including armpit fat, lower and upper back fat, underarm and axillary fat as well as mid back fat and love handles. After Dr. Schwarzburg decides which applicator to use to shave off unnecessary fat bulges in the back you will have up to 30% of fat eliminated after single session. The effect is cumulative and builds up with each successive treatment. If there’s asymmetric distribution of fat tissue on one side versus other, Dr. Schwarzburg will recommend multiple sessions and addition of other interventions such as Kybella injections. 


Fat destruction takes place through applying controlled cooling to subcutaneous back fat, which is the fat immediately under the skin. Because the temperature at which fat is destroyed is higher than the temperature of other surrounding tissues, including blood vessels and nerves, they are not affected at all. The frozen and crystallized fat cells are then slowly metabolized and excreted from the body through different mechanisms, including the lymphatic system. The time that it takes the body to recycle dead fat cells is usually around 3-4 months, and hence your final results will take up to 4 months to fully show. 


There is a common concern that back fat may come back after CoolSculpting. When talking about fat melting treatments many patients ask a valid questions whether back fat can come back after CoolSculpting or does CoolSculpting fat come back? Many patients also forget that CoolSculpting is not a tool for overall weight loss, it was specifically developed for spot fat reduction that is no longer responding to diet and exercise. 

As such the best candidates are those within 30 pounds of their ideal weight. Once fat cells are frozen they are physically removed from the body and can’t reappear if you stick to reasonably healthy and active lifestyle. If patients return to unhealthy habits that lead to significant weight gain fat can return to the areas previously treated by CoolSculpting. In the end you can rest assured that if you stick to reasonable eating habits and other healthy activities that back fat that is removed with CoolScupting is permanently gone. Hence, if you are suffering from the presence of back fat, which is unresponsive to classic weight loss routine, CoolSclpting with Dr. Schwarzburg in NYC could be your way to achieve best body contouring results.
