Swelling after Zeltiq CoolSculpting is normal
Although it is considered to have minimal down time, Zeltiq CoolSculpting chills the fat and causes the fat cells to die. This creates inflammation which helps the body get rid of fat cells. Swelling and bruising can occur. It may last for a few weeks and improves on its own.
Yes, Swelling Is Normal for the First 2 Weeks
there is no downtime, swelling is a common side effect of CoolSculpting
treatments, particularly when treating the midsection. Inflammation of the
treatment areas can endure for up to 2 weeks as the body works to break down
the fat that was destroyed by the Cryolipolysis. An itchy sensation is also
normal. If your swelling persists beyond the 2-week mark, or if the discomfort
becomes severe, please reach out to your provider for a follow-up examination.
I hope this is helpful.

Abdominal swelling after CoolSculpting
Belly swelling can happen after CoolSculpting. Although this is a non surgical procedure, freezing and killing fat does initiate an inflammatory cascade which eventually breaks down the fat. The suction also can create some swelling. This will not create downtime. A little bruising can also occur. This will gradually disappear over the course of the next few weeks and by 4 to 6 weeks you will begin to notice a slimmer waistline.

Swelling is very normal after Coolsculpting
Hi, what you are experiencing is entirely normal after the Coolsculpting procedure, especially in the abdomen. The process of fat cells dying is actually an inflammation process so it is normal to feel the effects of that inflammation. I expect your swelling will resolve itself in around a week or two. Best of luck.
