I had CoolSculpting 4 weeks ago. I have a ridge across my upper abs about 3 inches long. It is a bump I can feel, but is not visible. What could it possibly be?
1 Month After CoolSculpting I can Feel a Ridge Across my Upper Abs, is this Normal?

Ridge after CoolSculpting
Palpable ridge after Coolsculpting.....
This is probably still due to swelling from the procedure. This procedure kills some of your fat cells. Your body's inflammatory process then removes them. I would recommend massage of this area as the process continues. By 3-4 months it will likely be gone. Discuss this with your treating physician.
CoolSculpting of the abdomen
A ridge you feel indicates there is a firmness that is not visible. This may be an inflammatory reaction to the dead fat cells. It may take time, many months, for this to go away. You should be seen by your physician for an examination and clarification / reassurance. Your physician may recommend some treatment to make the firmness feel softer, sooner.
