Is there an effective non-invasive treatment for the appalling side effect paradoxical hyperplasia?

I wish we know who was at risk for this but we don't. I do let my patients know that if hyperplasia occurs (which it never has), I will perform liposuction on them for free... that is how rare it is.
Best of luck,
Paradoxical Hyerplasia following CoolSculpting
I recommend time and deep scar massage initially. Patients who lose weight during the time of focused fat reduction from CoolSculpting do better.
It may take a year or longer until the changes have settled as any procedure that creates heat or traumatic injury such as ultrasound or radiofrequency procedures, liposuction or tummy tuck during the healing process may also add to the lumpy scarring. At that time you may consider these other procedures but only with the evaluation and recommendations of a Board Certified and well experienced Plastic Surgeon.
I hope this has helped. All the best!
