Coolsculpting and Results
Coolsculpting is a fabulous procedure for freezing a bulge and removing the fat. However, in your case this bulge may be a hernia which can not be treated with Coolsculping. An in patient exam is best to evaluate by an expert. Best, Dr. Green
Lump in abdomen and CoolSculpting
You have an umbilical hernia but you seem to indicate that this is not the area of concern with your statement "2 fingers below my belly button".
There does seem to be a wider area below your belly button and perhaps this is what you are needing help in your evaluation of the CoolSculpt approach.
The CoolSculpting is a nice way to try to decrease fatty tissue in special areas. When there is a more atypical presentation with a bulge etc. that seems to be different than fatty tissue alone, then you need to have this evaluated.
C-Sections do not usually have an associated hernia but it still needs to be checked out with your regular doctors and especially with your ob-gyn doctor.
Just make sure that you are medically cleared and then you can proceed. The umbilical hernia can be quite easily avoided and thus would not need to be repaired if your doctor feels that it is safe and you are not bothered by it.
Hope this helps.
