It is possible to get hypertrophy of fat after Coolsculpting which can be resolved with liposuction but this is very rare. Check with your doctor.
This looks like paradoxical hyperplasia. This has been well described and is in the consent that you signed. I would go back and show your doctor and let them examine. My understanding is that the company will take care of this for you and they will recommend liposuction. Talk to your doctor.
You may have paradoxical hyperplasia and should get a formal evaluation to see if liposuction is needed to fix this issue. Best, Dr. Emer.
It's impossible to give any meaningful advice without seeing a full set of before and after pictures and performing an in-person examination. The best thing for you to do is to follow up with your treatment provider and voice your concerns. Best wishes.
I would recommend contacting your treating office for follow up care. I tell my patients that a follow up appointment within a 3-4 month period after Cool Sculpting is necessary to evaluate the treatment result.
Hi, I would strongly recommend you consult with your treating physician with an in person evaluation. It is not possible to diagnose you on just photographs alone but I would be concerned about paradoxical adipose hyperplasia, a extremely rare side effect where the fat layer thickens after Coolsculpting. This is one of the reasons I feel this procedure is best performed in the office of a dermatologist or plastic surgeon because this is something I discuss as part of the informed consent procedure to make sure my patients are fully informed, and are also going to be treated in a setting where we are knowledgeable in the biology and treatment of fat.
It appears that you may have the rare side effect called paradoxical adipose hyperplasia. This is where the fat grows in areas previously treated with cryolipolysis. You may need liposuction to correct it.
I would encourage you to follow up with your CoolSculpting doctor for an evaluation in person. He or she will be able to guide you through the next steps.
All the best,
Elizabeth Geddes, MD
It is possible that you have paradoxical hyperplasia from the procedure. I would definitely return to your board certified physician for the best advice. Best, Dr. Green
