Can CoolSculpting be done on the groin area?
I think it's important for you to understand that in 2010 Zeltiq obtained FDA approval of CoolSculpting for the abdomen and hips/flank area. Many other area's can be cool sculpted they are just considered to be off-label.
I personally do many other area's including: the back,arms,man-boobs, and inner/outer thighs. In fact, Coolsculpting just released a new applicator to treat the thighs called "Cool Smooth" - and so far I am impressed.
I would need to see you and examine you to let you know whether or not I think CoolSculpting would work in your area of concern. I think it's really important you see a surgeon with all the available applicators to accurately access weather or not you would be a good candidate.
It's unusual for you to have had liposuction of your groin area and not to have experienced a result. It can take a good 4-6 months for swelling to subside, so if you are within this time frame I would encourage patience. If you are outside of this time frame I would encourage you to see your surgeon and express your concerns.
