What are the risks associated with CoolSculpting (cryolipolysis)? This medical procedure helps adults shed excess fat cells in desired parts of the body. When people think about weight loss procedures, they think of plastic surgery and liposuction. Another individual might imagine unhealthy pills that are designed to kill fat cells or appetites. CoolSculpting is unlike other weight loss treatments. It is useful and safe.
- The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has certified CoolSculpting as a safe medical treatment.
- This is a noninvasive treatment. At no point during your CoolSculpting session will you be poked, cut, or prodded.
- At no point will you need anesthesia or sedation. This is an out-patient treatment, meaning that you can restart your day directly after your session.
- Although the treatments are safe, there are some reported side effects. Some patients claim they feel a slight stinging, pain, or arching at and around the treatment site. These issues can last up to two weeks from your first treatment.
