It's 7 days since coolsculpting my belly and there's a large hard lump circling my belly button. Is this normal?

I went back fri and they tried to break it up with massage but when I got home it recoagulated into a big hard mass again. I'm worried I'll need lipo. I can feel the edges and it's very tender. I have a large lump on my flank too. What do I do?

Thank you for your question. It is difficult to tell without assessing you, however, I do not think it is anything to worry about as it has only been 7 days after the treatment. If you are concerned, I would recommend speaking to your treating physician. Regards,

Hi and sorry to hear about your recovery. Since you are only 7 days post treatment I don't think it's really something to worry about. Try NSAID's if it's ok with your doctor and continue the ice and massages. Good luck.
