Coolsculpting with Orbera balloon

There is no problem with having Coolsculpting while having an Orbera Balloon in place.  Coolsculpting only effects the tissue (fat) in immediate contact with the device.

CoolSculpting will have no effect on an orbera gastric balloon. I suggest consulting with an expert for any pre- treatment concerns. Best, Dr. Emer

Coolsculpting should be safe to do with a gastric balloon. One will not effect the other.

Thank you for your question. CoolSculpting should be safe to do with a gastric balloon. However, I would mention this to your provider regardless. Ensure that you see a board certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist with experience in CoolSculpting.
