Can I fly on an international flight the day after CoolSculpting and is the procedure safe for the back fat area?

Coolsculpting and flying
In capable hands the procedure you are describing and flying is quite fine. However, due to the current side effects you are expereuncing from Vanquish I would not encourage you to do the procedure. Please consult a board certified dermatologist who has expertise with coolsculpting when you return home. Best, Dr. Green

You are fine to fly after coolsculpting.
But if concerned, just wait until after you return.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
best of luck!
Flying after CoolSculpting
Is "wellness resort" code for surgical tourism?
You already have had (too much) RF energy delivered to the skin to create hard lumps (scar and/or edema), as well as enough to the skin to create a first degree burn.
Freezing the tissues without first allowing everything to heal is a bit like using boiling water to treat frostbite--wrong and harmful, just in the opposite direction, as in freezing after "microwaving" the skin.
This has nothing to do with "referral back" to the treating doctor; this is simply bad advice. Just what kind of "doctor" is advocating this?
BTW, alone (without the previous problems), Coolsculpting would be fine for both travel and treating this area of fat. But why would you consider following the recommendation of a practitioner whose "first choice" caused you the problems you describe, and then accept "second choice?"
Just say no, and wait till you're back home where you can see a real plastic surgeon. Best wishes! Dr. Tholen
