Excessive body fat in the back is an aesthetic issue that can affect everyone. Some people try to eliminate it by switching to a healthy lifestyle, while others undergo cosmetic surgery like liposuction to get rid of their fat bulges.
But if you’re looking for safer fat-reduction procedures that don’t require workouts or surgeries, then CoolSculpting might be your best option.
So how exactly does CoolSculpting eliminate the stubborn pockets of fat in the back? CoolSculpting helps patients reach their aesthetic goals using a process called cryolipolysis.
This involves using a unique fat-freezing applicator fit for the treatment areas of the back and exposing the fat deposits to extreme cold – causing them to be destroyed and flushed out of the body naturally.

Sedentary lifestyles and aging are common factors why people notice unwanted fat accumulation in the upper back, lower back, armpit, and midback. Stubborn fat deposits make people conscious of how they look, so it’s not surprising that about 71.4% of people find different ways to eliminate fat and improve their appearance – whether it’s through an active lifestyle or a cosmetic treatment.
Liposuction is one of the go-to treatments for body contouring and fat removal, but not everyone is ready for plastic surgery yet. If you’re already close to your ideal weight, then you might want to try a non-invasive treatment like CoolSculpting for the back fat instead.
This gold-standard fat reduction technique is an FDA-cleared treatment that freezes pockets of fat and eliminates them through the body’s natural process of flushing out dead cells.
Body contouring and muscle building are tedious processes since some parts of the body react better to diet and exercise than others. Unwanted fat accumulation is usually visible as love handles, bra fat bulges, armpit fat, and fat deposits around the abdomen.
For patients that can’t reduce fat with diet and exercise anymore, then CoolSculpting for back-fat bulges might make their aesthetic journey a whole lot easier.
CoolSculpting is a simple procedure that uses a fat-freezing technique to destroy and eliminate stubborn fat cells in different parts of the body – including the back.
The CoolSculpting applicator suctions the skin above the fatty tissue and controls the temperature there, causing the unwanted fat cell to die without affecting the other healthy cells around the area. The frozen fat cells are then naturally flushed out of the body over the following weeks.
A single session of CoolSculpting requires about 1-3 hours of treatment time, depending on the surface area to be treated. The entire process usually requires multiple treatments, but patients can achieve their body image goals without the need for surgical procedures.
What’s great about this non-invasive treatment is that it can work on different types of back-fat bulges. Here are some of the common treatment areas for back fat CoolSculpting:
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical fat reduction treatment that offers a comfortable process for ideal candidates. Patients experience different fat removal results, but you can enjoy exceptional results after this cosmetic treatment if:
CoolSculpting works best for patients with realistic expectations. Their body type must also have stubborn fat pockets that can’t be simply eliminated with a healthy diet and regular physical activities. According to clinical trials by CoolSculpting’s manufacturer, most patients were pleased with their results – experiencing up to 20% to 25% fat reduction in the treated area.
Since the treatment doesn’t require a long downtime, patients can return to their normal activities on the same day as their appointment. Make sure to ask the provider for before and after photos of their previous CoolSculpting patients during the private consultation, so you have a better idea about how well the treatment might work for you.
Both CoolSculpting and Liposuction are effective treatment options for eliminating unwanted fat cells in the back. Patients have different preferences for treatment, but many of them prefer a minimally invasive fat removal procedure so they choose CoolSculpting.
Liposuction can produce dramatic fat reduction results, but it also leaves patients out of commission for weeks after the treatment session as the treated site heals. CoolSculpting requires a shorter recovery time, but additional treatments might be needed to achieve the ideal body shape that patients want.
The good news is that eliminated fat deposits won’t return to the treated areas after CoolSculpting – as long as patients maintain a stable weight and lead a healthy lifestyle. This fat removal procedure also costs less than liposuction and other surgical fat reduction options, making it the prime choice for most patients.
Although CoolSculpting is safer than liposuction for eliminating fat pockets in the back, some patients may still experience common side effects like temporary bruising, skin sensitivity, redness, pain, and tugging sensations at the treated site. To minimize the risk of different side effects, patients must have good overall health.
One rare side effect of CoolSculpting is paradoxical adipose hyperplasia, in which the fat deposits in the treatment area harden instead of being eliminated. It’s not a life-threatening condition, but patients require liposuction to get rid of the hardened fat if it develops.
Patients diagnosed with conditions like paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria, cryoglobulinemia, and cold agglutinin disease are also asked to skip this treatment because it may trigger serious complications and other adverse effects.
The exact cost of this fat treatment varies per patient because of different factors like the number of treatment sessions, the experience of the aesthetic provider, and the location of the CoolSculpting clinic or medical spa. During the initial consultation, the provider might give patients a cost estimate for their CoolSculpting treatment.
According to the CoolSculpting website, the average cost of treatment is $3200 so expect your CoolSculpting session to be around that price. Since Coolsculpting for upper and lower back fat is a cosmetic treatment, it may not be covered by most insurance providers. In that case, patients must pay the entire treatment cost out of their pocket.
CoolSculpting is an effective treatment plan for patients who want to eliminate their back rolls, bra bulges, and love handles without the need for a cosmetic procedure. Patients require multiple treatment sessions to achieve their desired results, but the eliminated fat won’t return to the treated areas as long as they don’t experience a huge weight gain.

"The treatment itself was not uncomfortable. Afterwords, I felt great. I didn't really notice anything for about 30 days. After day 30 until about a month later, I started noticing that my favorite jeans were not as tight anymore. I wasn't having to suck in to get them buttoned. And by that two month period after my CoolSculpting
"It's subtle at first, and then a month later you look and go, "Wow - It really did something!" It really moved the bar for me, and I'm feeling better about myself already. It feels so good to put on anything and know I look as good as I've ever looked. And I didn't say that or feel that when I was in my 20's, 30's, and 40's."
