Scars are a relative contraindication for Coolsculpting. This means that the physician should evaluate the scar in terms of age, size, depth, and contiguity with other structures before making a decision.

It's a difficult question to answer with a simple yes or no since it would depend upon many factors. These would include but not limited to the location, size, maturity of the scar etc. A picture might be helpful in advising you on this matter.
