Can Coolsculpt be safely performed after a Caesarean section?

Aesthetic Medicine Pregnancy

I delivered my baby 2 years ago by Caesarean. I am worried about side effects because of the Caesarean wound.

DOCTOR’S ANSWER (3)

Yes, Coolsculpt can be performed after a Caesarean section. 2 years is an adequate time for the Caesarean scar to heal and mature. The freezing effect penetrates into the fat layer beneath the skin only, and does not affect the deeper muscle layers.

For postpartum mums who also tend to have loose abdominal skin, radiofrequency treatments such as Vanquish and Exilis are a good choice.

Apart from breaking down fat cells, the treatment also stimulates collagen regeneration and remodelling, resulting in firmer, tighter skin. Similarly, the depth of penetration of radiofrequency waves is controlled, and is safe after Caesarean section.

You can consult a doctor to discuss your concerns before undergoing any treatments.

If your caesarean wound had no complications during initial healing, 2 years should be an adequate duration for the scar to mature and ready for Coolsculpting treatments in the surrounding areas.

It would however be best to assess your wound and the areas of treatment you require in person!

Yes. Coolsculpting can be safely performed after a Caesarean section if the Caesarean section surgery was done at least 6-12 months before. Generally it takes at least 3 months for the Caesarean section wound to heal completely.

Also, during abdominal coolsculpting or fat freeze treatment, the handpiece is not placed over the Caesarean section scar if your Caesarean scar is the low transverse(most common) type.

Hence, if your Caesearean section was uncomplicated and has fully healed, abdominal coolsculpting/fat freeze treatments can be safely done. However, you should go to an experienced doctor for this and have an assessment by him or her prior to any treatment.
