Take the CoolSculpting® Quiz

The makers of CoolSculpting® have a simple 5-question survey to help you recognize whether you’re a candidate for CoolSculpting®. These five questions can give you a preliminary idea:

Question 1: Are you male or female?

Even though we tend to accumulate fat differently, CoolSculpting® works for both men and women.

Question 2: What areas of the body would you like to sculpt by removing stubborn fat?

CoolSculpting® can remove fat from the following areas:

  • Inner thighs
  • Outer thighs
  • Hips
  • Abdomen
  • Waist
  • “Love handles”  and “muffin tops”
  • Flanks
  • “Bra Fat”
  • Neck
  • Arms
  • Gynecomastia (male breasts)

Question 3: Have you undergone any cosmetic procedures in the past?

CoolSculpting® appeals to many individuals, even to those who have never undergone a cosmetic procedure, because it is non-invasive and requires no downtime.

Question 4: Would you be willing to consider a non-surgical treatment for fat reduction?

As a non-surgical treatment, CoolSculpting® has no downtime, no needles, no anesthesia, and no scarring.

Question 5: Are you within 30 pounds of your goal weight but have stubborn fat deposits?

Although ideal candidates for CoolSculpting® are within 30 pounds of their goal weight, this procedure can help almost anyone with persistent fat reach their body shape goals with proven, lasting results.
