Background: Cryolipolysis is a noninvasive method for the selective reduction of subcutaneous fat. The abdomen and flank area are most commonly treated sites and now the treatment efficacy became the important issue. Objectives: To evaluate the effectiveness and safety of double stacking cryolipolysis treatment with the novel contoured applicator for abdominal fat reduction. Materials and methods: 12 healthy Korean were treated using cryolipolysis contact device. The device was applied on participant's left lower abdomen. Performance was held for 35 minutes and immediately repeated the second performance. The right abdomen was left untreated. Participants were examined with high resolution ultrasound and the depth of subcutaneous fat layer was measured initially and 8 weeks after the sessions. Any adverse events were assessed during the entire study period. Results: The subjective reduction of abdominal fat was noted in most participants. No serious adverse events was reported. Reduction of subcutaneous fat layer depth was confirmed in high resolution ultrasound after 8 weeks of treatment. Conclusion: The results of this study indicate that abdominal fat can be reduced effectively by the novel cryolipolysis applicator. With subjective satisfaction of participants our study shows that double stacking treatment appears safe and well tolerated with enhanced treatment outcomes.
