Venus Freeze After Cancer Surgery
Hi and thank you for sharing your question here! The penetration of radiofrequency is limited to the skin and the underlying fat and It is not expected to reach the abdominal cavity and organs there and hence, it is very unlikely to directly affect them. The main contraindication for Venus Freeze is in patients who have pace-maker or metal implants and it is generally considered to be a safe procedure in other patients, but to be on the safe side, you can also share your concern with your oncologist as well. Venus Freeze works beautifully in abdomen as it tightens the skin in addition to reducing the fat. I hope it helps and good luck!
