Coolsculpting results on love handles are excellent. The photo alone is insufficient to determine if you are a candidate. However, it appears to be a reasonable recommendation from your surgeon.
Looking at your pictures, CoolSculpting would be a great way to minimize the flank area. Your anterior abdomen and internal muscle wall is nice and tight after the tummy tuck and treatment to the flanks should give you nice contours and an hour glass shape to your stomach and hip area. To give you an idea of how much effect it will have on your flanks, CoolSculpting should reduce the fat approximately 20-40% in a given area. Hope that this helps you in your decision making!

You look like an excellent candidate for CoolSculpting on the flanks. You may need more than one session but I would wait two months between each treatment to assess the results.
You can get this area treated but I would stack the treatment so that it is repeated right after the first one or wait 2-3 months between treatments.In Austin we have two Cool Sculpting machines two make this process more efficient.
