Which Areas of the Body Can Be Targeted with CoolSculpting®?

It can be frustrating for people who work hard to get fit and close to their goal weight through a healthy diet and exercise routine, but who find that there are still some areas of excess fat that they can never seem to lose. Genetics, hormonal factors, and aging can cause us to be predisposed to storing more fat cells on certain areas of the body. The great thing about CoolSculpting® is that it can remove some of those fat cells that won’t be reduced through any other means—without the need for surgery. Wondering what the best areas are for CoolSculpting® at our Thousand Oaks practice? Read on.

As a fat-reduction procedure, CoolSculpting® is FDA-cleared for the treatment of localized deposits of subcutaneous fat in the submental area (under the chin) and submandibular area (under the jawline), thighs, abdomen, and flanks, along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks (also known as banana roll), and upper arms.

Here are some of the most popular areas for this treatment:

Double Chin 

If you gain weight, fat is distributed evenly throughout the body, and some of it may go to the face, accumulating below the chin or under the jawline. Your bone structure (lack of projection of the chin and jaw) may cause you to appear to have a double chin after even the smallest weight gain. Genetics can also make you more likely to develop this bulge. Just remember that neck fat must be a specific size and shape to fit into the CoolSculpting® applicator. 


Due to hormones, fat is more likely to accumulate on the lower body area for women. Since fat on the thighs is crucial for childbearing and is tied to fertility, it is often the most difficult fat to lose. It takes about 35 minutes to treat each thigh with CoolSculpting®.

Abdomen and Flanks 

Genetics may cause some people to carry more of their fat on the belly area, making it difficult to reduce. In men, the stomach is the default area to store excess fat. CoolSculpting® reduces soft, subcutaneous fat on the stomach and sides for a slimmer waistline.
