I had the coolsculpting procedure done about 5 months ago on my love handles and am still experiencing tingling and pins and needles sensations, which seems to have gotten more noticeable just in the past few days. It's mostly on the left hip (about at the spot where the top of my underwear hit and not extending too much into legs or butt). If I bump or lightly touch just the right spot, it feels like there is an electrical impulse in my hip--kind of like hitting your funny bone.
Should I Be Worried About Permanent Nerve Damage After CoolSculpting? Is It Possible to Get Worse over Time?

Nerve Damage After CoolSculpting
Thank you for your question. CoolSculpting is considered to be safe and an effective treatment. Patients may experience short term pain or discomfort and other side effects such as redness, bruising, swelling, tenderness to the touch, cramping, itching, tingling, and numbness. Numbness can continue for several weeks after the procedure. I recommend having a consultation with your treating physician to determine the real cause of your symptoms. Best of Luck!
I am not aware of permanent nerve sensitivity or pain after CoolSculpting for fat loss
tingling or numbness or pain after coolSculpting should be temporary. However, doctors learn from reported cases and we urge you to follow up with your doctor who can then present his or her findings to the company who can disseminate that knowledge to the rest of the doctors who are doing the treatment with CoolSculpting.
