CoolSculpting is a great treatment that provides fat reduction without an invasive procedure, but with all procedures, there are always some risks involved. The procedure has a very high patient satisfaction rating in our NYC practice and in some patients, the fat loss is as significant as if they had liposuction. Most patients are able to resume their normal daily and physical activities within a day or two after the procedure but most will feel some tenderness to the touch in specific areas. An extreme hypersensitivity to touch is an extremely rarely reported side effect and can be so painful that patients have noted that wearing clothing is painful. Stabbing sensations have been reported but anyone with unusual pain should discuss this with their doctor and possibly be examined to ensure that the post treatment course is normal. Pain tends to occur more after the use of the larger applicators in some cases.and the abdomen is the area where this tends to occur.
