FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT CAUSES BRA FAT?
Bra fat can sometimes be caused by poor eating habits or muscle underdevelopment. Some research suggests that eating carbohydrates and refined sugars, especially when a person isn't hungry, can lead to an increase in abdominal fat. But, the majority of patients who have unwanted bra fat simply develop pockets of fat in this area of the body as a result of natural aging. Changes in metabolism and estrogen levels can influence how your body stores fat, and even patients who follow a healthy diet and exercise routine are quite often frustrated by excess fat in the bra area.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS ASSOCIATED WITH COOLSCULPTING FOR ARMS AND BRA?
In rare cases, patients may experience side effects such as lingering pain or paradoxical adipose hyperplasia, in which the fat cells can re-congregate. However, these side effects are very unlikely when you choose to have your treatment with an experienced CoolSculpting specialist. When it comes to safe and successful CoolSculpting treatments, you can trust that StudioMD only works with expert, board-certified plastic surgeons and dermatologists who always put your health first.
HOW MUCH DOES COOLSCULPTING FOR BACK FAT COST?

At StudioMD regular Coolsculpting sessions cost around $900 per cycle. Package discounts are also available.

WHAT OTHER AREAS CAN BE TREATED WITH COOLSCULPTING?
CoolSculpting can be used to shape numerous different parts of the body. Overall, It is a great treatment for reducing any focal fat bulges and stubborn areas that are resistant to diet and exercise, including:
- Neck fat or double chin
- Love handles or flanks
- Abdominal region
- Arm flab
- Thighs & knee fat
- Banana rolls
HOW DOES AN ARM LIFT SURGERY COMPARE TO COOLSCULPTING?
Brachioplasty, or arm lift surgery, is a surgical procedure that removes fat and loose skin from the arms. Because surgery removes excess skin tissue, this procedure is best for patients with significant underarm fat and severe skin laxity.
A plastic surgeon will perform this procedure under general anesthesia and the recovery process is typically 4-8 weeks.
Coolsculpting, on the other hand, utilizes a noninvasive cooling and sucking device that acts as a form of non-surgical liposuction by killing fat cells permanently and naturally. It has no recovery time and can be performed in less than an hour, with only minor discomfort associated with it.
