Hormones may be affected by fat volume
Some hormones are dependent on the fat stores in the body so if someone is undergoing a work up or treatment for a hormonal imbalance, they might be best off to defer liposuction or CoolSculpting. I am not aware of this having been reported to be an issue with CoolSculpting but it would be wise to try to resolve a hormonal issue first.

It is possible that a hormonal imbalance might make a person hold on to excess fat. You may wish to wait until your hormones are regulated for best result with Coolsculpting
Zeltiq and hormones
I am unaware of Zeltiq having any impact on sex hormones but would suggest you discuss with your surgeon and your physician prescribing the hormones.
