Help! I had my last liposuction procedure Oct 25 2015 which is my 4th time having it done over the years with the same dr. Well I wasn't satisfied this last time. I was told he wasn't able to do his best due I had scar tissue he couldn't break up. Will cool sculpting work for me although I have scar tissue and is it anything I can do to get rid of the scar tissue? I'm seeking a hour glass look. Thanks in advance!

Coolsculpting is an excellent form of non-invasive fat reduction for the right patient. Some applicators take 1 or 2 hours but the new advantage applicators take only 35 minutes and have significantly less risk for delayed onset pain (especially in the abdomen). Results are seen at 2 months and typically 1-3 treatments will be necessary on each area to achieve ideal results. The number of treatments depends on the amount of fat there and the patient's goals. There is not downtime and the results can be impressive in the right patient. We also use the Zimmer Z-wave for improved patient comfort and added results. The best candidates are those who are in pretty good shape with areas of stubborn fat that won't go away no matter what. I recommend in office evaluation by a physician to make sure you are the right candidate for this procedure.
