FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS A BRA BULGE?
Bra bulge is a very common problem, especially in older women. It’s defined as the band of fatty tissue that sits over your back muscles and can create a fold of skin above the waist. Bra bulge can be caused by a variety of factors, but it's classified as subcutaneous fat, which means it's a normal accumulation of fat that just happens to congregate around the upper back, armpit, and bra area.
DOES IT HURT TO GET BRA AND ARMS COOLSCULPTING?
You may feel minor discomfort at the beginning, as the treatment area "freezes," but this usually goes away after a few minutes. And since CoolSculpting requires no recovery time, you can resume your normal daily activities immediately following treatment. As the skin "thaws," you may experience mild swelling or bruising on the treated area, but these effects should subside within the first week.
CAN COOLSCULPTING BE COMBINED WITH KYBELLA FOR THE UNDERARMS?
Absolutely. When patients are interested in body contouring that focuses on smaller treatment areas, such as the armpits and bra bulges, CoolSculpting can be combined with Kybella, which is an injectable cosmetic treatment that uses a naturally-occurring active ingredient, deoxycholic acid, to break down and absorb dietary fat. In fact, the combination of Kybella and Coolsculpting is generally the best approach. This allows patients to achieve optimal results that will leave them feeling completely comfortable in their own skin.
HOW EFFECTIVE ARE THE RESULTS?
The effectiveness of CoolSculpting varies from person to person, but the best results of bra and arms treatments are more commonly seen on people who are generally within 30 pounds of their ideal weight but have areas of excess fat. Overall, CoolSculpting delivers approximately 20% of permanent fat reduction per treatment in any given area. For the bra and underarm areas, multiple sessions will likely be required.
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY COOLSCULPTING SESSION?
To begin with, you must come in for a consultation in order for us to properly assess the areas we are treating and formulate a comprehensive treatment strategy. During the treatment, plan to wear loose, comfortable clothing and bring a book or headphones to enjoy your time. You might feel a little sore the next day. Although there is no downtime with CoolSculpting, it is best not to plan a major event right after your treatment to ensure that nothing interferes with your plans.
