I have a kidney transplant 5 years ago. The kidney functions normally and I am in good health with a BMI of 18.8. I would love to get rid of stubborn lower abdominal fat. Can I have this even though I have a transplanted kidney in my abdominal cavity?

CoolSculpting for fat reduction after kidney transplant
The skin and fat are drawn into the CoolSculpting device, not the internal organs. It is best to have the doctor performing or supervising the treatment discuss it with your transplant surgeon.
