Coolsculpting and Hernias
Coolsculpting will not cause a hernia since the only the fat is drawn into the applicator, not the muscle. If you think you may have a hernia, consult your physician before having a Coolsculpting procedure done as you do not want to cool sculpt over a hernia.
Coolsculpting and Hernias
Coolsculpting does not cause hernias but may unmask a hernia that was not clinically apparent before the procedure. Your physician should evaluate you before the procedure to see if you are a candidate for coolscupting and do a thorough exam.
It wouldn’t cause a hernia as
much as unmask one that was not clinically apparent before treatment as the
defect in the muscular wall would have to already be present for a hernia to
occur. Have your doctor evaluate you for a possible hernia before you have
Can CoolSculpting Cause Hernias?
Thank you for your question. Coolsculpting does not cause hernia. I would recommend consulting with a Board Certified Dermatologist or Plastic Surgeon to give you the best treatment plan and make sure that you're a good candidate physically and medically. I hope this helps!
CoolSculpting should not cause a hernia
should not cause a hernia. I have heard of cases where hernias have manifest
after Coolsculpting, though I have not seen this. In these rare cases I find it
unlikely that Coolsculpting was the cause of the hernia and more likely that
herniation was simply not noticed previously. CoolSculpting should not be done
over a hernia however.
Coolsculpting and hernias
Coolsculpting should not cause a hernia but should not be used over or in the area of a hernia. You should have the hernia fixed, then have the Coolsculpting performed afterwards. Good luck.
CoolSculpting can exacerbate an pre-existing muscle weakness leading to a full manifestation of an abdominal hernia. This is rare according to Zeltique, but I have seen one in my practice. Treating an area with a hernia using CoolSculpting would be dangerous and is not to be done. Fix the hernia first. Good luck
Don't CoolSculpt over a Hernia
Coolsculpting will not create a hernia, since only skin and the fat below the skin is drawn up into the applicator, Coolsculpting should not be done over a pre-existing hernia where the contents of the hernia, extruding past the muscle, may be damage by the Coolsculpting treatment. It is important to check for a pre-existing hernia, such as an umbilical hernia, prior to treatment.
It Is Not Recommended to Treat on or Around a Hernia
A hernia occurs when part of an internal structure bulges through a weakened area of the body cavity. Hernias are caused by a combination of structural weakness (both hereditary or secondary) and increased pressure (such as heavy lifting, straining, etc.) Treatment may cause new hernia formation or exacerbate pre-existing hernia, which may require surgical repair. Physicians should examine the patient for evidence of pre-existing abdominal or femoral hernia prior to use of device.
Can CoolSculpting cause a hernia?
CoolSculpting should not cause a hernia in a normal individual but it should not be used over an area in a patient where there is an existing hernia.
