MRI after CoolSculpting

I would not see any reason why you could not have an MRI anytime after a CoolSculpting treatment to the abdomen.  The CoolSculpting treatment should not affect the ability to perform the MRI or your results.

It depends on what you are getting the MRI for.

It depends on what you are getting the MRI for and if it is in the same area as the area that was Coolsculpted. It's best to call your board-certified physician who did the treatment to confirm, and to make sure you tell your radiologist.

Hi and thanks for your question. I don't know of any issues regarding MRI and coolsculpting but would check with your coolsculpting practice to make sure. Good luck.

You should be fine provided the MRI is not evaluating the soft tissue of the abdomen or abdominal wall..  If it is for another area then there should be no issue.

MRI and Coolsculpting

There is absolutely no interaction with the MRI or GliSODin products. I wouldn't worry. BTW, I like the GliSODin products and have been selling in the office for about 7 years, take them myself daily too.
