BACKGROUND: Body sculpting, or body contouring, is among the fastest growing areas in cosmetic dermatology. Cryolipolysis, or "fat freezing," was FDA-cleared (CoolSculpting System, ZELTIQ Aesthetics, Pleasanton, CA) initially in 2010 for fat removal of the anks, and subsequently received FDA-clearance for other anatomical locations. Over the past several years, there have been increasing published reports and physician discussion regarding paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH) post-cryolipolysis, previously identified as a "rare" adverse effect...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Cryolipolysis is a safe, effective non-surgical procedure to reduce fat. For most cryolipolysis treatments, tissue is pulled between parallel cooling plates with a treatment duration of 60 minutes. A novel contoured cup, medium-sized applicator was developed to increase tissue contact with reduced skin tension and reduced treatment time. This prototype contoured cup was investigated with a standard cryolipolysis applicator to evaluate safety, efficacy, and patient preference...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Cryolipolysis has previously received FDA clearance for fat reduction in the abdomen, flanks, and thighs. There is also interest in small volume fat reduction for areas such as the chin, knees, and axilla. This article reports the results of a cryolipolysis pivotal IDE study for reduction of submental fullness. STUDY DESIGN/MATERIAL AND METHODS: A prototype small volume vacuum applicator (CoolMini applicator, CoolSculpting System, ZELTIQ Aesthetics) was used to treat 60 subjects in the submental area...

Cryolipolysis has become a popular non-invasive treatment for unwanted fatty collections. The benefits are minimal down time, short recovery time, and decreased pain, although pain is the most frequent complaint. The author recently treated a patient who presented with an enlarging adipose collection on his lower abdomen following cryolipolysis with CoolSculpting(®) (ZELTIQ Aesthetics, Inc., Pleasanton, CA).

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: While cryolipolysis initially received FDA clearance for fat reduction in the abdomen and flanks, there was significant interest in non-surgical fat reduction for other sites, such as the inner and outer thighs. This article reports the results of an inner thigh study which contributed to FDA clearance of cryolipolysis for treatment of thighs. STUDY DESIGN/MATERIAL AND METHODS: A flat cup vacuum applicator (CoolFit applicator, CoolSculpting System) was used to treat 45 subjects bilaterally in the inner thighs...

BACKGROUND: Cryolipolysis has been shown to be a safe and effective noninvasive procedure for the reduction of localized subcutaneous fat. OBJECTIVES: The authors examine the safety, efficacy, and procedural growth of cryolipolysis (via the CoolSculpting device; Zeltiq, Pleasanton, California) in a single plastic surgery practice. METHODS: A retrospective chart review was conducted for 528 consecutive patients who underwent cryolipolysis treatment from January 2010 to December 2012...
