It is not uncommon to have delayed onset pain after a Coolsculpting procedure. This pain is more commonly experienced with abdominal Coolsculpting. It starts 3-5 days after the procedure and can last 10 days or so. This pain is nerve based and is best treated with Neurontin. Ask your physician to prescribe you some.
Best of luck,

I am one of the 1% so I can relate with you. However, the pain is easily managed and will fade quickly. The results are definitely worth the discomfort.
Consult with your physician so he or she can advise you accordingly.
Coolsculpting is a great procedure for the abdomen
Coolsculpting is a great procedure, especially in the abdomen. Some patients have some pain and numbness after the procedure, especially in the abdominal area. These side effects should subside soon. Our patients in NYC have loved this procedure and have come in for a second or third area after treatment because they have been so happy with the results. For the best results please consult a board certified physician with experience in coolsculpting.
