How Much Does Freezing Fat Cost?
CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved fat freezing system that specifically targets fat cells without causing damage to surrounding tissues. According to the CoolSculpting website, these treatments cost between $2000 to $4000 per session, depending on how many areas are being treated and the size.
Does Insurance Cover Treatment?
In most cases, insurance companies are not going to cover fat freezing treatments because they are not considered medically necessary. There are payment options that are offered by some providers. CoolSculpting providers will also sometimes offer coupons to reduce the costs for new patients. Inquiring about the cost before seeking treatment is wise so you know what to expect.
Average Cost Per Procedure
Fat freezing can be carried out on multiple areas of the body. Some clinics can even provide treatment for more than one body area at a time. The following offers some information on the national price average per body area.
- Arms typically cost around $650 each. Most people need to have both arms treated so this will result in a cost of around $1,300.
- The estimated cost of treating the stomach area is around $1,500 for each session. Because this area is so large, multiple treatments may be needed.
- The thigh areas can be more expensive to treat because the inner and outer thighs often need to be addressed. The cost can vary, but many providers charge around $750 for the inner thighs and $1,500 for each outer thigh.
While fat freezing treatments are more on the expensive side, they are beneficial. The fat cells that are frozen are eliminated permanently. Eating a healthy diet and maintaining an ideal weight will help to keep the flab away after fat freezing treatments have been carried out.
