Hello - I wanted to see if I would be good candidate for cryolipolisis? (photos)

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive alternative for patients interested in body contouring. The CoolSculpting procedure targets common problem areas of excess fat, including the abdomen, flanks, inner and outer thighs, and underneath the chin. It is not a weight loss solution for patients. Whether the CoolSculpting is right for you depends on your overall aesthetic goal. Pregnancy affects women’s bodies in many ways. Rectus diastasis, the separation of the abdominal muscles, is one of the resulting changes, and it can only be rectified with tummy tuck surgery. Consult a board-certified plastic surgeon regarding which procedure is best for you and your individual goal. Good luck in your research!

Coolsculpting may be the answer
Based on your pictures, you are a candidate for the coolsculpting procedure. You may need 2 to 3 treatments per area to see optimal results. Coolsculpting is one of the best non invasive devices for body contouring. It is safe and predictable and with the right patient selection, satisfaction is high as 80 to 90 percent. It is best to consult with an experienced coolsculpting provider. Coolsculpting does not tighten loose skin, but based on the pictures I feel you are a candidate especially if surgery is off the table

Good candidate for crylolipolysis?
You are clearly a highly motivated person and are diligent about doing your homework before hand. Based on what your photos show and the opinion of the plastic surgeon whom you have seen in consultation, I would be in agreement with the opinion that your optimal option is a tummy tuck. Yes, you are correct to assume that their are some risks with surgery which are larger than risks with Coolsculpting alone. However, achieving aesthetic improvement with Coolsculpting alone in your current state will more likely than not achieve only minor improvements to your appearance in you mid section. Seek another Board Certified Plastic Surgery opinion before starting down a path which might disappoint. Best,Dr. C
Coolsculpting may be a possibility
Coolsculpting is a good alternative to having an invasive procedure. However a tummy tuck is completely different and will provided different results. Coolsculpting will get rid of fat cells from the abdomen area (your desired area of treatment). I haven’t had any patients say they have had any “downtime” where they could not do their normal daily activities. As with any procedure there are risks and side effects, I would suggest that you contact a coolsculpting expert to discuss in detail.
