I appreciate your question.
Has your weight been stable?
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
best of luck!
Evaluating Results from Coolsculpting
Coolsculpting is a fabulous procedure for reducing a bulge by 25% without any down time at all. To properly evaluate your results you should return to your treating physician for before and after photos. In addition, you should get weighed on the same scale to determine if you are the same weight as before your treatment. Let us know your results.
Sometimes Results Are Hard to See
It is possible that the results are
present but you won't really appreciate them until you compare your current
state with the pre-treatment state. Make sure your weight has not increased as
well, because this will compromise your result. The fat cells that have been
destroyed from the treatment will not come back, but the remaining cells will
increase in size with weight gain. Best wishes.
It has been exactly 3 months since my 2nd CoolSculpting procedure and I'm seeing no measurable results. Is it too soon to worry?
At 3 months you should see a change. You should go in and review before and after photos at times people don;t realize the change until they see it through pictures.
No results after Coolsculpting
Although it is possible, if you have maintained your original weight, I would go in for "after" pictures to compare them to your before pictures. I have done this for many patients who thought they saw no results and then signed up for more treatments after seeing what they looked like before.
I have had many patients concerned about results after treatment only to find after they compare their before photos to their after photos do they realize that they actually did have a nice results. Before making any conclusions as to the final results, please return to your physician and see the pretreatment photos. If, at that time, there are no results, then you can discuss this with your treating physician immediately and come up with a solution or new treatment regimen.
Hello, if you had "before" pictures taken, I recommend that you go back to your practitioner to take "after" pictures so that you can compare your results side by side. I would suggest also consulting with a plastic surgeon to see whether liposuction or some other treatment will give you the results you seek. Best of luck.
CoolSculpting and Results
I see patients everyday that do not get improvement or where the improvement is not as substantial or contoured as they would like. I would suggest seeing a body contouring specialist to determine if other non invasive options are for you or if hi definition liposuction would be better. Best, Dr. Emer.
It typically takes up to 4 months to see the full result from Coolsculpting. If at that time you are not seeing the results you seek you may consider another treatment such as liposuction. Go back to the treating physician and review your photos to see where you are.
