Coolsculpting Before Kids?

+2

Hi,

Coolsculpting doesn't affect your ability to have children.  It's just not recommended during pregnancy.  We have treated many women who have never been pregnant and also those who wanted to get rid of post pregnancy "mommy fat" with great results.  If you gain a lot of weight with your pregnancy, then you may require more than one treatment to get your body back to where you are happy with it.

 

Best,

Coolsculpting is fine before and after pregnancy

+2
It is safe to have Coolsculpting both before and after pregnancy.  Zeltiq is only contraindicated during pregnancy. We all have lots of fat cells and freezing some off in a given area should have no effect on pregnancy.

Coolsculpting and Pregnancy

+2

It's okay to have Coolsculpting prior to and after pregnancy. Coolscuplting has no affect on your ability to have children in the future. Therefore you can do it before or after having kids. However, if you are pregnant, I would recommend waiting. Coolsculpting is designed to reduce unwanted fat and has no known long term effect on have kids.

Good luck

CoolSculpting is not contraindicated for women who have not yet had children

Unless you're pregnant now, being a woman who has not yet had children does not prevent you from having CoolSculpting to decrease focal body fat stores by freezing and killing those fat cells.

CoolSculpting and Pregnancy......

+2

CoolSculpting has no affect on your ability to have kids, Therefore you can do it before or after having kids.  Having kids should have little no affect on your coolsculpting results as long as you return to your pre-pregnancy weight
CoolSculpting kills some of the fat cells in the treatment area.  Your body then reabsorbs them and that area shrinks, making that area of your body smaller.

Coolscultping

Coolscullpting is a great procedure to reduce persistent localized fat bulges. I would recommend waiting until after pregnancy. There is no evidence that Coolsculpting has any effect on child bearing potential.
