You experienced a vasovagal response to the procedure. This response can happen in patients who did not eat prior to the procedure or who are extremely anxious about the procedure. I hope that you feel better. Best, Dr. Green
Fainting after CS
This is called a "vasovagal" response, and it is when your blood pressure and heart rate drop in response to some stimulus, usually pain. It happens every so often with coolsculpting. You may experience it next time, or you may not. Some things that you can do to try and limit the chances of it happening are to eat and drink plenty of water prior to the procedure. Sometimes a valium or xanax can help if it is anxiety driven.
Hope it helps and good luck!
