CoolSculpting is a popular non-surgical procedure that uses controlled cooling to freeze and eliminate fat cells in targeted areas of the body. If you are considering CoolSculpting, you may wonder if you’re a good candidate for the treatment. CoolSculpting is a safe and effective option for individuals looking to reduce stubborn fat, but it’s not a weight loss solution.

Reduce Stubborn Fat With CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting uses controlled cooling to freeze and eliminate fat cells in targeted areas of the body, such as the abdomen, back, thighs, buttocks, bra line, male chest, and upper arms. CoolSculpting works on the principles of cryolipolysis, which involves exposing targeted pockets of excess fat to cold temperatures to cause their death and eventual expulsion from the body via the lymphatic system. Each session can reduce up to 25% of unwanted fat cells from a region.

You’re A Good Candidate If:

  • You have specific areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise
  • You are in good overall health and have a stable weight
  • You have realistic expectations for the treatment
  • You are committed to maintaining a healthy lifestyle following the procedure

Factors That Affect Your CoolSculpting Candidacy

While CoolSculpting is safe and effective for many individuals, it may not suit everyone. Several factors can influence your candidacy for CoolSculpting, including your goals, body composition, and gender. To ensure you are a good candidate for the procedure, our CoolSculpting experts will assess your goals and run tests to confirm that CoolSculpting is the right choice. Below, we discuss the various factors that can impact your candidacy.


CoolSculpting is suitable for individuals of all genders, but it’s more popular amongst women because of how they store fat in their bodies. Men often have lower levels of subcutaneous fat and faster metabolisms, and their fat cells are distributed across the body. Women often have concentrated pockets of excess fat around the hips and tummy because of an evolutionary design to deliver nutrients to fetuses. Since CoolSculpting targets specific pockets of fat rather than overall weight, it’s often more suitable for women.


CoolSculpting is not a weight loss solution and is not intended for individuals who are significantly overweight or obese. It is best suited for individuals close to their ideal weight and looking to reduce specific pockets of fat resistant to diet and exercise. That’s because CoolSculpting eliminates targeted pockets of fat cells from specific regions of the body rather than reducing overall weight. As such, you should be within 30 pounds of your ideal weight to consider CoolSculpting.


You must have realistic expectations for CoolSculpting and understand it’s not a weight loss solution. CoolSculpting is designed to reduce specific areas of fat resistant to diet and exercise, not to help you lose a large amount of weight. If you have a lot of excess skin in the treatment area, CoolSculpting may not be the best option. Please discuss your goals and health history with our CoolSculpting providers to determine if it’s the right choice.

You Might Not Be The Right Candidate If:

  • You are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • You have an underlying medical condition that affects your ability to heal
  • You have a history of cold injuries or sensitivity to cold temperatures
  • You have a lot of excess skin in the treatment area
  • You are significantly overweight or obese
