Can I Get CoolSculpting After Tummy Tuck?

Q: Can I Get Coolsculpting After Tummy Tuck?

I recently had a tummy tuck (7 weeks ago) but I have been left with an overhang in the front portion of my lower abdodomen that bulges past my incision. Obviously there is still swelling, but there appears to be excess fat and perhaps remaining loose skin as well. Before doing any revisions I would like to get Coolsculpting of the area to see what happens with the reduction of fat. When can I get this?

A: Coolsculpting is a fantastic way to help remove a small bulge after liposuction. However, if you have recently had surgery such as a Tummy Tuck I would consult with your surgeon as to the length of time that you should wait before doing Coolsculpting. You need to give your body time to heal from the surgery that you had.
