        What causes bra fat & bra bulge?

        Excess fat in the band that overlies the back muscles is a frequent problem for more mature women. It represents a normal variation of fat deposits localised to the upper back, armpit, & bra area. 

        Metabolic, hormonal changes & chronological ageing are key factors that lead to bra fat. This area is usually resistant to exercise & dieting.

        Want to know more about CoolSculpting & bra fat?

        The best way to determine if a person is an ideal candidate for CoolSculpting is to conduct a detailed assessment during an in-person consultation. With a variety of the applicators we have at Cutis Dermatology Brisbane, we’re able to reduce or eliminate fatty tissues around your bra area to achieve a slimmer, more toned contour.

        How do we ensure your treatment will work?

        When you see us for a consultation our therapists will take photographs of the areas which concern you. We measure the treatment areas & arm circumference & will determine which applicator size is best for your arms. This custom plan to ensure the best fit will give you the results you are looking for.

        When will I see results?

        Results are seen as early as 4 weeks after CoolSculpting, however are maximal at 4 months. One treatment gives up to 25 % reduction in localised fat. 


        Improvements in skin laxity can be seen at 6-7 months.

        How Can You Speed Up CoolSculpting Results?

        CoolSculpting compounds the gains you will receive from keeping a healthy lifestyle of regular exercise & a good (not strict) diet. If you combine treatment with these two things, you can be able to achieve optimal results. Drinking water may help improve results because your body will be able to flush out dead cells when it’s properly hydrated.

        Can fat dissolving injections such as Kybella be used?

        Yes, off label Belkyra or Kybella can be used to focally reduce stubborn areas of fat, including bra fat. It is not our preferred method because it’s painful. Results, whilst good in some, are far less predictable than CoolSculpting. Most patients require between 3-6 sessions of Kybella for comparable results. 

        How does SculpSure compare with CoolSculpting Mini in this area?

        No comparison. The CoolMini is made especially for this area (& under chin fat). With its unique contour & applicator, we can specifically target this area. We do have the SculpSure laser but find CoolSculpting far more effective. 


        SculpSure uses diode heating via lasers & sapphire crystal cooling. It is not as effective as cyrolipolysis which freezes fat.

        Stubborn areas such as the bra fat & focal areas of back fat can be targeted with the Coolsculpting Mini.

        What is the CoolMini?

        The CoolMini adapter was developed for treating specific areas of focal fatty deposits such as under the chin, above the knee, or the bra area. It can also be used to treat smaller areas of flanks & abdomens for more finesse. 

        CoolMini is the most advanced non-invasive fat reduction treatment dedicated to treating the double chin, or submental fullness. It is far more effective than heating devices such as SculpSure.


        What other areas does CoolSculpting treat?

        CoolSculpting can body sculpt other areas. This treatment is excellent for reducing focal fat bulges & stubborn areas not amenable to diet & exercise. 

        • Neck fat or double chin
        • Flanks or love handles
        • Abdominal area
        • Arm fat
        • Thighs & knee fat
        • Banana rolls

        How does surgery compare with CoolSculpting?

        Arm lift surgery known as brachioplasty is a surgical procedure that removes fat & loose skin from the arms. This procedure is best for patients with significant under arm fat with severe skin laxity, as surgery removes excess skin tissue. 

        This procedure is performed by a plastic surgeon under GA. This type of arm lift procedure is best for patients who have lost a significant amount of weight & have a large amount of excess skin with significant laxity. The recovery process is typically 4-8 weeks. 

        Why do we combine NuEra & CoolSculpting arms for most patients?

        NuEra is a radiofrequency treatment that is used to tighten the skin. It is indicated for patients with mild to moderate skin laxity of the arms. NuEra is a powerful, yet non-invasive radiofrequency treatment that heats the deeper layers of skin, in turn causing collagen contraction & stimulation. 

        NuEra can be used for skin tightening in many areas of the body along with CoolSculpting, including the arms, abdomen, under chin area, jawline, buttocks, abdomen, & legs. This treatment is typically performed 2-4 weeks after CoolSculpting.
