CoolScultping with lymphedema?

Coolsculpting of abdomen with edema and lymphedema?
In the setting of tissues that are already edematous or swollen with lymphedema, the first question I would ask is why are these tissues swollen? Post-operative and not yet healed completely? Or some sort of medical condition? This will answer the question "Temporary or chronic?"
Freezing to reduce swelling that should naturally heal and reduce on its own is not advisable, as skin could die, creating quite a mess that time and patience could have avoided. This is NOT a good idea, even with more information. Best wishes! Dr. Tholen
Coolsculpting and Lymphedema
The only way to determine if your lymphedema would be a contraindication for Coolsculpting is via an in person consultation. Best, Dr. Green
