I Had Zeltiq Done 2 Wks Ago and I Am Uneven on One Side. What Should I Do?
- Asked by josephinamina in Montreal, QC
- 3 years ago
The fold of the skin is gone from my stomach, on one side, but on the other side, the fat fold still remains.
Zeltiq Coolsculpting works great for the tummy
Don't worry Josephinamina two weeks after treatment you probably haven't started to really see the results of your treatment yet. One of the great things about Zeltiq Coolsculpting that we've seen is the smooth and even end results. It's really not uncommon for you not to see results for 4-8 weeks and remember also that your treatment only effected about 20-25% of the fat cells in that area. It's good to plan on having 2-3 treatments in an area.
Hang in there!

CoolSculpting uneven after 2 weeks
CoolSculpting can cause some initial swelling post treatment and the swelling can be unequal on each side. Swelling can take a few weeks to resolve Results from CoolSculpting normally are not apparent for 4-6 weeks post treatment. The unevenness should resolve over the next few months, and if it does not, you should consult your provider.
The effects of Zeltiq take two to four months
It is too soon after Zeltiq to be concerned since the results take several months. You may have done swelling from the procedure or edema that is causing you to look uneven. I would go back to the dermatologist who performed the procedure to ci firm this.

Uneven skin after Coolsculpting
You may want to return to the plastic surgeon who did your treatment for possible massage techniques. However, the results take 1-3 months to take effect and the area will most likely even out over time.

Two weeks too early after CoolSculpting to see the results
It takes time to develope the results after Zeltiq. At least four months to see 20% reduction. Initially there is swelling so it can take much time to see the improvement. Please schedule a followup appointment with your doctor to discuss.

Swelling can be uneven
at two weeks, you may still have some swelling which may be uneven. don't fret. it is still quite early and you probably will not see final results until 2-3 months after your procedure.
Zeltiq - wait a few months before judging results
Relax. It is still too early to tell what your result will be. Patients typically see noticeable results at 2 months and may experience continued improvement through 4 months. Your quick response on one side is quite unusual, but wait for several months before making any judgments about symmetry.
If, after several months, you notice that one side is noticeably larger, you may elect to repeat coolscupting on that side. Alternatively, you could elect to have a more customizable treatment with liposuction/laser lipo.
Zeltiq treatmetns take 2-3 months to show their result.
Based on the fact that you only had the treatment 2 weeks ago and that the process of fat crystallization and fat resorption takes 3-6 weeks, it is hard to understand how the treatment from 2 weeks ago can create unevenness. I would suggest you consult with the physician who supervised the treatment and share your concerns and review your pretreatment photographs. After two months together you can decide what the best next steps should be.

Cool sculpting Results?
It is too early to see the effects of cool sculpting 2 weeks after the procedure: you will likely see improvement an improvement in the area 2 months from now.
Zeltiq Coolsculpting 2 weeks post treatment
It is still early to see your final outcome. It may take several more weeks before you see your final result. If your stomach was the only region treated (and not the sides) this may result in a less than ideal outcome however. The "love handle" region should be treated as well if you look "out of proportion."
This si the same philosophy as with standard liposuction.
