Dealing With Side Effects from CoolSculpting®
After CoolSculpting®, it is fairly common for patients to experience temporary side effects such as swelling, redness, bruising, tingling, or numbness. These side effects will subside quickly and should not affect your results. However, in some unusual cases, CoolSculpting® can lead to skin damage or other complications, or it may produce poor results. One example of this is when the handpiece is inappropriately placed during treatment, leading to contour irregularities. Another example is the reduction of too much fat. In both of these cases, Dr. Verebelyi can perform revision CoolSculpting® to improve your body contours and refine your results.
Patients should recognize that complications and adverse reactions are rare, and CoolSculpting® is FDA approved for the safe removal of fat. However, in the unlikely event that you experience one of these unexpected complications or poor results, Dr. Verebelyi can help to resolve the issue. At our practice, we treat many skin conditions and can perform alternative fat removal or fat transfer procedures to help individuals achieve their aesthetic goals. If CoolSculpting® is not right for you, Dr. Verebelyi may be able to perform another procedure instead to create the smooth and slim body contours you desire.
