Thank you for your question. CoolSculpting is not meant to treat over previous hernia repairs due to the strong suction of the applicator. I would recommend speaking to your doctor to have the hernia fixed first. Should you still be interested in CoolSculpting, seek out a certified plastic surgeon to see where exactly you are looking to be treated. If the amount of fat in the area is small and not directly over the repair, Zeltiq has a CoolSmooth Pro applicator that may be sufficient.
Coolsculpting and Hernias
If you have a hernia you cannot have coolsculpting in the same area. I suggest you see an expert for a consultation. Best, Dr. Emer.
#CoolSculpting with hernia
You can have CoolSculpting with a hernia only if it is not administered over the area of the hernia. I hope this is helpful! Dr. Clark
CoolSculpting Over A Hernia
I would not perform CoolSculpting directly over your hernia. I would recommend following your surgeon's orders and getting your hernia fixed first.
Can't do coolsculpting with hernias
Thank you for the great question and photos. Havin a hernia is a contraindication for coolsculpting. Because the machine is using suction to pull the fat into the applicator you don't want your hernia pulled in there as well! Best of luck with you next surgery!~Dr Sieber
