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.

Coolsculpting in the groin area
Coolsculpting is approved for the flanks, abdomen areas in particular. It is not approved for the groin area and I would not recommend it. Please make sure you see a board certified dermatologist with a lot of experience in cool sculpting for the best results.
