The CoolSculpting® Elite revolution doesn’t show signs of stopping! Ever since its phenomenal hit on the shelves in March, this device has been setting a standard in nonsurgical body contouring that other devices and procedures might not rival for a long time. The non-surgical body contouring market calls for more CoolSculpting® Elite, and the Vinyard Institute of Plastic Surgery is adequately equipped to deliver.

At our office in Port St. Lucie, FL, Dr. William J. Vinyard, MD, FACS, understood the potential of improved body contouring with CoolSculpting® Elite, enough of an incentive to add the new device to his technological armory. And the anticipated results were not far behind, as Dr. Vinyard’s patients quickly discovered how easy nonsurgical body contouring could be!

However, even after months of unrelenting use and delighted customers, CoolSculpting® Elite still manages to find an ace up its sleeve. Compared to other nonsurgical body-contouring technology, CoolSculpting® Elite boasts the largest number of potential treatment areas. With CoolSculpting® Elite, you can eliminate fatty tissue and improve your body contour in areas you never thought possible! And because we want you to be thoroughly informed before committing to any procedure, we are taking today’s blog to discuss the top body areas for CoolSculpting® Elite and the fantastic improvements that this device brings!

#1: “Love Handles”

You can say goodbye to the annoying fatty tissue sitting on each side of your waist, commonly known as “love handles,” with CoolSculpting® Elite. As such, you will be able to wear that special bathing suit you’ve been saving for the summer season without worrying about excess fatty tissue hanging around your waist. Furthermore, a better-contoured waistline will allow you to experiment with slimmer clothes such as skirts, dresses, and tight jeans. CoolSculpting® Elite will not only improve your body contour but also cause a revolution in your wardrobe!

#2: Back

CoolSculpting® Elite is an efficient tool for removing fatty tissue in extensive back areas. As a rule of thumb, most patients will undergo CoolSculpting® Elite in the lower back (the area that extends from the love handles), the mid-back, and the fatty tissue stored under the bra line called a “bra bulge.”

#3: Abdomen

There’s no secret that excess fatty tissue enjoys storing up in the abdomen area and that removing it calls for a lot of patience, exercise, and proper diet. For that reason, most patients will opt for CoolSculpting® Elite in the abdominal area, where the device has proven its efficiency. 

Since practitioners always tailor body-contouring procedures to the patient’s needs, you can undergo a CoolSculpting® Elite procedure in different abdominal areas, such as the lower, middle, and upper abdomen.

#4: Thighs

Another one of our patient’s favorites, the fatty tissue stored in the thighs is always a hard nut to crack. Furthermore, skin looseness is another issue that plagues this body area, which is why you need a treatment comprehensive enough to tackle several cosmetic issues simultaneously. Fortunately, CoolSculpting® Elite’s C-shaped applicator design covers up to 18% more skin surface area than its predecessor, CoolSculpting® Legacy, which makes fatty tissue stored in thighs an easy prey to CoolSculpting® Elite.  


#5: “Banana Rolls”

The fatty tissue stored underneath the buttocks, commonly known as “banana rolls,” is another CoolSculpting® Elite’s favorite. The procedure will render this body area slimmer, smoother, and better contoured. We recommend that you bring together the banana rolls and the leg area underneath the buttocks into the same treatment for consistent results.

The banana roll treatment can prove challenging since skin looseness can develop after body-contouring procedures such as liposuction. However, CoolSculpting® Elite avoids this issue altogether by a gradual fatty tissue removal, preserving the connective tissue within the targeted area. 


#6: Double Chin

Excess weight, loose skin, gravity, and genetics play a significant part in forming submental fat pockets that we call a “double chin.” Since you might feel uncomfortable with the sight of your double chin in the mirror, why don’t you give CoolSculpting® Elite and see how fast you can ditch that double chin and redefine your jawline with this device? After the procedure, you will be looking in the mirror at a better-defined submental area and a younger version of yourself!


#7: Upper Arms

The upper arms are a typical victim of excess fatty tissue and sagging skin. With the help of its fat-freezing technology, CoolSculpting® Elite will assist in fat layer reduction in your upper arms, boosting their aesthetic look.


#8: “Armpit Puffs”

The fatty tissue stored in the axillary area causes the armpit to bulge, creating small pockets of fat between the armpit and the bra strap. With the help of CoolSculpting® Elite, the axillary fatty tissue or “armpit puffs” will become a thing of the past. Make sure that you discuss with your practitioner the appropriate number of CoolSculpting® Elite treatments for complete removal of axillary fatty tissue.
