CoolSculpting® has been around for six years, and in that time, it has improved thousands of people’s lives.If you haven’t heard of it before, it’s a non-invasive fat reduction treatment created by Zeltiq, and it’s wonderful.
In this FDA-cleared treatment, a troublesome pockets of fat are sucked into a specially-designed tool that precisely cools it to the point where the fat cells freeze and die. In the weeks following the procedure, the body gets rid of the cells and you can enjoy the results. Usually, one treatment will give you the results you need, but there’s nothing wrong with needing another.
CoolSculpting is often used on the abdomen. Clients who come to us for treatment usually wonder if the treatment will affect their inner organs. More specifically, some women wonder if the cold temperatures will affect their fertility. Today, we are going to answer that important question!
Will CoolSculpting Affect My Fertility?
- The short answer is “no.” CoolSculpting is designed to affect only the fat cells in the skin. The CoolSculpting tool is full of sensors that closely monitor temperature and make sure the skin itself isn’t permanently damaged. It sucks the skin and fat away from the body, which protects everything beneath. If you are pregnant, lactating, or trying to become pregnant, check with your doctor and our Board Certified plastic surgeon just to make sure you’re set to go.
