What is good for back fat and arm fat removal? CoolSculpting or Vaser hi def? Any other treatments? Non invasive?
Dr. Dean Kane Q & A
Q. I posted a question about CoolSculpting for arms, abdomen and a bra roll. I realize that I may want something for the upper back fat, not just the bra roll. A doctor replied and told me I would be happy with Vaser hi def. I’m wondering if the scars are minimal or hidden. Or if there is something like CoolSculpting that treats the fat but doesn’t cause scars. Or what my treatment options would be? I’m 19 years old. Thank you!
A. Thanks for sharing your photo.
Any incision to the skin will create a scar, whether it is Vaser or traditional liposuction. Vaser is a combination approach of powered fat destruction and liposuction and maybe too much for primary lipocontouring in a 19 year old.
Consider traditional lipocontouring on multiple areas of the body. CoolSculpting, while “tried and true”, is very limited and may not be cost effective and only provide a limited area of improvement with each applicator placement.
It is best to consult with a well versed, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for what is recommended for YOU.
All the best!
