Many different factors can contribute to elevated liver enzymes, (LFT'S), in an otherwise healthy individual. Numerous studies (available on line and through the Zeltiq manufacturer) have shown CoolSculpting to have no effect on LFT's, nor on blood cholesterol levels. I recommend that you follow up with your regular doctor to make sure all is well.
CoolSculpting Swelling and Bruising -- Use Cellutone/Z Wave After and Venus Legacy / Vanqish
Coolsculpting is an excellent form of non-invasive fat reduction for the right patient. Some applicators take 1 or 2 hours but the new advantage applicators take only 35 minutes and have significantly less risk for delayed onset pain (especially in the abdomen). Results are seen at 2 months and typically 1-3 treatments will be necessary on each area to achieve ideal results. The number of treatments depends on the amount of fat there and the patient's goals. There is not downtime and the results can be impressive in the right patient. We also use the Zimmer Z-wave for improved patient comfort and added results. The best candidates are those who are in pretty good shape with areas of stubborn fat that won't go away no matter what. It is best to speak to your primary care physician regarding your bloodwork to investigate the underlying cause. The studies that were done by zeltiq have not shown elevation in LFT.
