If someone has numbness in a region outside the treated area after CoolSculpting, this may be a temporary situation from nerve irritation. The distant area will not lose fat however. The skin may be numb distant to the area as the nerve that's irritated provides sensation to a wider area, but in order to lose fat, the exact area must be treated so the fat is frozen during the CoolSculpting. You need to discuss your symptoms with your doctor.
