How to Get Rid of Back Fat with CoolSculpting


Excessive back fat is a physical and aesthetic issue that can affect anyone. The traditional method to get rid of it involves intensive exercise, a calorie-controlled diet or liposuction surgery. But thanks to cosmetic innovations, it can now be reduced with a fat freezing treatment requiring zero surgery, downtime or workouts. Enter CoolSculpting®, an FDA-approved treatment for non-surgical back fat reduction that generates permanent results.

What causes back fat and how do we remove it?

Back fat is a visible problem that can affect anyone of any age. It can result from the natural ageing process when our back muscles lose strength and structure. This can lead to saggy pockets of skin forming on our upper and lower back.

Lifestyle factors also play a vital role in back fat formation. Individuals with sedentary lifestyles, who sit at a desk all day or perform limited physical activities, are most at risk. A lack of exercise slows the body’s ability to burn calories, and when combined with excess calorie consumption, back fat can form.

Back fat removal can be hard to tackle with lifestyle changes alone. Instead, patients must adopt a vigorous weight loss program to minimise the appearance of back fat. This can be a time-consuming process, requiring lots of self-sacrifice and hard physical effort. But CoolSculpting targets back fat cells in a quick, controlled and precise way.

How does CoolSculpting back fat work?

The CoolSculpting procedure removes subcutaneous back fat by medically freezing fat cells so they crystallise, shrink, break down and die. The body naturally dispels them through standard metabolic processes.

This unique process, also known as cryolipolysis, freezes only the fatty cells that sit just below the skin’s surface. These fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than the tissue that surrounds them. This enables our advanced CoolSculpting practitioners to safely isolate and treat the fat cells alone while leaving healthy tissues free from damage. 

The Coolsculpting treatment is clinically proven to remove fat. It is an FDA-approved patented technology developed at Harvard University. 

Recent studies have shown that it can generate up to a 27% loss of fat after just one session.

Treating back fat with CoolSculpting

What happens in a CoolSculpting back fat removal treatment?

During the CoolSculpting back fat treatment, the CoolSculpting device delivers a controlled cooling action to break down back fat cells. The device is applied on top of a gel pad which is laid across the fat bulges as a protective lubricant while the treatment takes place. 

It takes as little as 35 minutes and patients can return to their normal activities with no downtime.

CoolSculpting for Back Fat – How long does it take to work? 

The visible results of CoolSculpting on the back are usually noticeable after 6-8 weeks. It takes this amount of time for the body to successfully flush out the fat cells. Patients will notice a marked reduction in back-fat bulges and will be able to see a more smoothly contoured shape across their flanks and upper back. 

The best results are tangible after 14-16 weeks when most of the fat cells will have been dispelled.

CoolSculpting Reviews

5 stars – “Non surgical at its very best consistently delivered by knowledgeable world class practitioners

Dr Mountford was the founder of the Devonshire Place clinic as well as Stoke Poges, the staff there are still in the main chosen and mentored by her and wow what a team she developed…. From the moment I met Magda I felt comfortable, confident and privileged to be under her care for Cool Sculpting, where I had fat pockets post surgery. I am discerning and knowledgeable and need to know I’m in the hands of the very best…. I did! If you’re considering EMsculpt or Coolsculpt I would not hesitate to say go to this clinic. It’s 100 percent worth the time, effort and cost if you’re going to have these procedures!! ” – OJ, August 2022

5 stars – “Cool Sculpting

I recently had Cool Sculpting at the Stoke Poges clinic on my chin area as part of my treatment plan. In the initial consultation, Ria gave me realistic expectations of what results could be achieved and answered all my questions regarding the treatment process, leaving me very reassured. Although I had read that the treatment can be quite uncomfortable, I was pleasantly surprised that I found it absolutely fine and the only slightly uncomfortable part is the massage at the end which is over very quickly! Again, Ria couldn’t have been more reassuring throughout the treatment and I felt that I was in safe hands. I have had two follow up appointments in which we compared the before and after photographs and I am extremely pleased with the results of the treatment. I would definitely recommend both Cool Sculpting and Ria and wouldn’t hesitate to use her services again.” – TJ, January 2022

Are the targeted fat loss results permanent?

One of the great benefits of the CoolSculpting back fat treatment is that the targeted fat cells are permanently destroyed without the need of back fat surgery. As long as you stick to a healthy and active lifestyle after this point, the fat will not return and you will be able to enjoy the visible benefits of fat loss on a long-term basis.
