I had CoolScuplting a week ago and have gained about 5 lbs... is this normal? The swelling is just starting to go down.
Is Weight Gain Typical After Coolscuplting?

Weight loss or weight gain with fat loss from coolsculpting zeltiq's technology
Most patients do not gain weight but there is swelling that always occurs and it might provide extra pounds from fluid weight. Coolsculpting rarely produces a paradoxical weight enlargement from larger production of fat cells. The reason for this is not understood. Less than 15 worldwide cases have been reported to-date and none of these cases have occurred until a few months after the procedure; it would be too soon to develop new fat mass in one week from the CoolSculpting.
Coolsculpting and weight
It is not typical to gain weight following a CooolSculpting procedure, It is important to remember that maintaining a healthly diet and doing moderate exercise is important for an ideal result from CoolSculpting
Weight gain and Coolsculpting
I have heard of a few patients have a short term weight gain after the procedure though I have not seen it in my practice. I always inform patients this is not a weight loss procedure...but is a shaping procedure.
