CoolSculpting and your kidney

Can CoolSculpting applied directly over the kidney area cause damage to the kidney?

The Coolsculpting process draws skin and fat into the applicators, but not the deeper structures. The kidneys are a much deeper structure, protected by muscles. In someone with normal anatomy, there is no reason to think that the kidneys could be damaged, and there is no evidence to suggest that this is the case.
