After CoolSculpting, what happens to the abdominal apron skin?

Thank you for your question. CoolSculpting is a non-surgical treatment that permanently destroys 25% of fat cells in a treatment area. It can take 9-12 weeks to see the full results.If you have good skin elasticity, your skin will shrink as the cells are removed by your body. If you already have loose skin, it will stay just as loose or get worse. I would recommend seeing a board certified plastic surgeon for a consultation. This way, you can explain your concerns and find an option that works for you. In-person assessments are always best. Regards,

Coolsculptng treats the fat, not the skin

It depends on the wuality of the skin. If the skin tone is good, it wil shrink to fit.  If the skin is already loose, it could be made worse.  Cool sculpting is a treatment for the fat, not the skin.
