Coolsculpting for abdomen

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

CoolSculpting is a great treatment to reduce fat in problematic areas. CoolSculpting is a non-surgical fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate fat cells. If your abdomen is the place of concern, as long as you do not have a history of abdominal hernia(s), then this treatment would be safe for you despite your c-section history.

CoolSculpting post C-Section

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
CoolSculpting is fine for those who have had a C-Section as long as there are no hernia's in the area to be treated. I would recommended speaking to a certified plastic surgeon to see if this would be the best fit for you and what desired outcome you are looking to achieve.

CoolSculpting Should Be Fine After Caesarian Section

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
Unless you have hernias or another condition that may be a contraindication to CoolSculpting, having a received a Caesarian in the past should not prevent you from benefiting from CoolSculpting, as long as the treatment is not being done immediately over the scar.  CoolSculpting uses a patented technique called cryolipolysis(TM) to freeze and kill fat cells, which are then eliminated permanently from the body. It is a noninvasive treatment that can be performed in about an hour with no downtime. Please see a board-certified dermatologist so he or she can thoroughly evaluate the area you wish to have treated.

Coolsculpting post old c-sxn

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
Coolsculpting should not be a problem on an old c-sxn scar as long as there are no hernias.  However, you should meet with a plastic surgeon to discuss if Coolsculpting or a tummy tuck is best for you.

Thank you for your question. I would recommend visiting a board certified plastic surgeon for a consultation. This way, you can explain your concerns, learn more about the procedure, and determine if you are a candidate. You will also be able to learn more about other procedures. All the best.

CoolSculpting following C Section

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
CoolSculpting can be performed on patients who have had C Sections. Upon consultation and evaluation, your board certified plastic surgeon will discuss the risks and benefits of potential treatment options. Together you will make a decision on which options would be best for you.  Best of luck!

Coolsculpting C-Section Scar

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Coolsculpting is a great option to treat the areas around scarring.  It can help smooth out the tissue where a subcutaneous fat pocket my have formed around a scar creating a ledge.  One of the greatest benefits of coolsculpting is reducing that subcutaneous fat giving your skin a smoother appearance.

Coolsculpting is great

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
Coolsculpting can reduce a very significant amount of fat from the abdomen. For those that don't want a surgical procedure it is a great option. You may require multiple treatment areas and a couple treatment sessions to give you the result that you desire, but patient satisfaction is extremely high when performed by an experienced center.

Coolsculpting and Results versus Hi Definiton Liposuction

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
Coolsculpting only does a small improvement in the treatment area and cannot give you defining and contouring.  It takes 90 days to see the 15-20% improvement from a single treatment.  Liposuction can do a significant improvement much more quickly.  Best, Dr. Emer

Is coolsculpting a good treatment for abdomen after a c-section?

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
Coolsculpting is a great option to reduce extra fat on lower abdomen that may form a "ledge" over an old c-section scar without having to go through surgery.  As long as you are able to pinch the fat and squeeze it, the CoolScuplting can freeze it.
