Back Fat & CoolSculpting® Elite

Regular exercise and a healthy diet is something that every man and woman should strive to achieve and make a habit in their life. However, for some men and women, even with these great and healthy habits, excessive, stubborn fat is bound to hang around. And one of the most common (and frustrating) areas of the body for this fat is in the back. 


The truth is that fat, whether it be along the bra line or on the lower area of the back (like the dreaded “muffin top” or “spare tire” area) can be so hard to remove. However, the good news is that there is a way to get rid of this subcutaneous fat. CoolSculpting® Elite is a revolutionary non-invasive treatment that can remove that frustrating back fat (and other areas of the body with stubborn fat) with ease. The CoolSculpting® Elite handpiece is strategically placed by the professionals at Sanctuary Medical Aesthetic Center to remove excess, unwanted fat in places that are next to impossible to eliminate.


What Exactly Is CoolSculpting® Elite?

CoolSculpting® Elite is a body-contouring method that removes unwanted fat on various areas of the body with the use of cryolipolysis. During this transformative body contouring process, the fat cells are frozen and then eliminated naturally over time. And what makes CoolSculpting® Elite even more successful is that the fat-freezing device has seven different applicators to choose from, coming in different shapes and sizes to complement your body’s natural curves.


This allows for ultimate patient comfort and effective fat reduction. For this treatment, the CoolSculpting® Elite device pulls the skin between the cooling panels to cool the fat cells to a tempeerature just above freezing. One of the best parts of this treatment is that the surrounding skin, nerves, and vessels are unharmed during the process, while crystals form on the fat cells. Once the fat cells are dead, they are naturally consumed by the body over the course of a few months.  


CoolSculpting® Elite is FDA cleared to treat visible fat bulges in nine areas of the body, including the thigh, abdomen, flank, bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks (banana roll), upper arm, and the submental (under the chin) and submandibular (under the jawline) areas.

How Does CoolSculpting® Elite Work for My Back Fat?

As men and women age, it often becomes harder and harder to lose weight in certain areas of the body. This is due in large part to the breakdown of collagen and elastin in the skin (which are responsible for the skin’s health, strength, and elasticity). Genetics also plays a major part in where fat can accumulate and stay on the body. 


CoolSculpting® Elite is a non-surgical procedure that can rid your body of unwanted back fat in as little as one treatment, in some cases. Because this procedure is non-surgical, it is a great alternative to undergoing surgical liposuction; however, the results of CoolSculpting® Elite take a little bit longer to reveal themselves. If you’re not ready to undergo surgery (and everything that comes with surgery, like anesthesia, incisions, and recovery time) or you don’t have an exorbitant amount of fat that you want to remove, then CoolSculpting® Elite could be the perfect option for you to consider to remove your back fat and sculpt your body, creating a new, noteworthy contour. 

Am I a Candidate for Back Fat CoolSculpting® Elite?

First, you will need to schedule a consultation with the professionals at Sanctuary Medical Aesthetic Center. During this appointment, you will be able to voice your aesthetic concerns and desires. Your physician will examine your back fat to see if you are truly a candidate for this treatment. Your physician will also review pre- and post-op instructions with you. 


It is important to remember that CoolSculpting® Elite is not a weight-loss procedure. This means that patients need to be at or near their ideal weight, so that the newly contoured body shape can be seen and shown off more noticeably.

How Long Does It Take to Remove My Back Fat With CoolSculpting® Elite?

The length of your CoolSculpting® Elite treatment is dependent upon the amount of fat that needs to be removed. Treatments are typically completed in 30, 45, or 75-minute sessions. This gives patients plenty of time to relax, read a book, catch up on their favorite show, or even take a quick nap! 


Because this treatment is non-surgical and doesn’t produce immediately noticeable results like liposuction, it does take some time for the fat to leave the body. Most patients begin to see improvement in their body contour after three weeks, though final results can take one to three months to settle. But, when those results become final, you will have a transformed and rejuvenated appearance that will have you feeling as good as you look. Take a look at some CoolSculpting® Elite back fat before and after photos to see results a few weeks after treatment sessions. 


Would My Back Fat Results Be Permanent After CoolSculpting® Elite?

CoolSculpting® Elite results are permanent; although, you still need to do your part in keeping your body in shape and healthy. While the treated fat that dies off and is eliminated by the body is gone for good, the reality is that new fat cells can form over time. However, with proper self-care, including exercising and eating right, you can enjoy your CoolSculpting® Elite results for a long time.
