Discomfort after CoolSculpting procedure
Post procedure discomfort
Abdominal pain following CoolSculpting
Pain and spasm following CoolSculpting to the lower abdomen is uncommon and when it occurs a week or more after the procedure, is usually well tolerated with tylenol and ibuprofen. The duration of this discomfort may be 1 to 3 weeks.
Gabapentin is marketed to reduce nerve pain and may take up to 3 weeks to achieve the desired pain control. You may need a muscle relaxant or stronger pain medication to make you comfortable during the interim.
Local options that may help include:
- Warm compresses or heating pad
- Relaxing massages
- Compression garment such as athletic pants or Spanx
If the pain is getting worse and not better, return to your Physician for re-examination. I wish you the best!

A. Non-pharmacological interventions: Non-pharmacological interventions have been attempted, such as removal of clothing from the treatment area to avoid further irritation, use of cold compresses, and the use of compression garments. However, these interventions do not usually provide substantial relief, and patients typically require pharmacological interventions.
B. Pharmacological interventions: Various pharmacological interventions have provided varying degrees of relief. In general, oral and topical corticosteroids, NSAIDS, antihistamines, and analgesics provide minimal relief, and narcotics and topical anesthetics such as lidocaine creams or patches provide minimal to moderate relief. Sleep aids may be considered to address sleep disturbances. Eight patients were treated with low dose (300mg BID to TID) gabapentin (Neurontin), an anticonvulsant which is also commonly used in the management of postherpetic neuralgia, diabetic neuropathy, and migraine, and showed promising results with moderate to complete relief. Because of the self-limiting and self-resolving nature of the pain, patients typically require no longer than 1 – 2 weeks of pharmacological intervention.
