Firmness after CS
Firmness and swelling is not uncommon. Massage and warm compress helps this subside faster. Spanx is a good idea as well.
Swelling post cool sculpting is expected this is simply because of the technique that is used to achieve results. The applicator uses a vacuum suction to pull as much fat as it can into the cups and therefore be able to freeze more = greater results. Some clients will agree that it is usually twice the size as you were before, and can experuience it feeling firm. The swelling will subside after a week and then you may experience tingling sensation.

Some patients get very swollen from coolsculpting and if you are concerned I suggest speaking to your physician for an immediate evaluation. Best, Dr. Emer.
Extreme Swelling After CoolSculpting
Hi Jane. Did they do a manual massage on you after they removed the applicator? Some degree of swelling is to be expected after the treatment, but the manual massage can help reduce the severity of it. Either way the swelling should resolve in a week or two. If there is any concern I would contact your treatment provider immediately. Best of luck.
- Hello, again thank you for your question. It is not uncommon to have swelling following this procedure however most patients do not feel it is severe. I would recommend a followup visit with your treating physician. Best of luck with your continued recovery.
