I just had Cool Sculpting done on my abdoment. Would wearing a girldle help reduce the swelling? Would massage help move out the frozen fat cells?
Girdle and Massage After Cool Sculpting To Reduce Swelling?

Girdle and massage after CoolSculpting
Compression garment and massage after coolsculpting for fat loss
We routinely recommend compression garments for liposuction as there is a group of tunnels in the fat that need to compress but this is not the case with CoolSculpting so we don't routinely recommend them, but there is nothing wrong for a patient to try to see if they can obtain comfort. Some patients do develop exquisite sensitivity after coolsculpting not allowing them to wear clothing that applies even just moderate pressure so they certainly wouldn't consider wearing a compression garment.

Compression Garment Following CoolSculpting - CoolSculpting Complete
In my practice, we do provide each patient with a compression garment as part of the Coolsculpting Complete experience. We do believe that compression can make patients feel more comfortable and secure. Additionally, we offer vibrational therapy to help increase lympahtic drainage which could possibly enhance the results of Coolsculpting

Girdle and/or Massage after Coolsculpting?
Thank you for your question.
Wearing a compression garment and/or massaging the area after Coolsculpting may help with the swelling - although it hasn't been scientifically shown to do so.
I do not think it will hurt.
Treating swelling after Coolsculpting
Gentle massage should help the swelling go down a little faster. You may also want to avoid sitting a lot and walk around to help as well.
