Cryolipolysis or CoolSculpting® is a body contouring treatment that reduces subcutaneous fat in targeted areas without surgery. As this treatment became very popular many individuals reported positive results, but more and more negative results are emerging.
For individuals that have experienced adverse reactions to the treatment, solutions exist to make it better such as VASER® liposuction that can help with botched CoolSculpting and paradoxical adipose hyperplasia.
CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved procedure that helps eliminate excess fat without surgery. Most patients require multiple treatments to see the desired results. The procedure targets fat in the superficial layer and is ideal for people with mild to moderate excess fat.
An MD or plastic surgeon does not need to perform the treatment, which makes this treatment rapidly and widely available in many spas.
The CoolSculpting treatment consists in cooling the fat to the point where the fat cells are destroyed, but the process can only leave you with unevenness, or trigger Paradoxical adipose hyperplasia.
CoolSculpting Side Effects:
- Botched CoolSculpting Results
CoolSculpting can produce uneven results. It means that instead of having smooth results, you can find spots where the fat was not treated creating indentations, lumps, shark bites, and other defects. CoolSculpting can also create scar tissue internally making the area treated bumpy when touched and uneven.
Patients who have experienced CoolSculpting botched results have had to live with a bulge for several months. Often time patients must undergo a different procedure to correct the unevenness and CoolSculpting botched results such as Vaser Liposuction.
- Paradoxical Adipose Hyperplasia (PAH)
Paradoxical adipose hyperplasia is an adverse effect of the CoolSculpting procedure. The condition causes an enlargement of the area that was previously treated. It happens gradually as the fat cell freezing causes a reaction in the fatty tissue.
The tissue expands and thickens instead of breaking down to allow processing and removal from the body. PAH can occur months after the initial procedure, with patients getting an enlargement in the shape of the applicator.
A famous top model, Linda Evangelista is suffering from PAH due to CoolSculpting. She stated that the CoolSculpting procedure left her “permanently deformed” and “brutally disfigured.”. In September, she filed a $50 million lawsuit against CoolSculpting.
VASER Liposuction can help correct Botched CoolSculpting Results and PAH
- VASER Liposuction
Minimally Invasive Vaser Liposuction performed at JustGoLipo remains the best way to eliminate unwanted fat without invasive surgery and general anesthesia. Vaser Liposuction can help produce the desired results and correct botched CoolSculpting Results when performed by a skilled surgeon.
Vaser Liposuction is different from traditional liposuction because the ultrasound technology helps remove the fat deposits by breaking apart the fat cells before removing them.
This type of liposuction is extremely precise, allowing it to target specific areas. It can help create a natural contour. The procedure results in less pain, bleeding, and bruising.
- Benefits Of VASER Liposuction For Botched CoolSculpting Results
The Vaser ultrasound technology is ideal for patients experiencing indentations, lumps, shark bites, and other defects from CoolSculpting. The CoolSculpting corrective treatment helps improve the uneven results by disrupting and melting the leftover fat cell offering a smooth surface and results.
Vaser Liposuction also targets scar tissue created by CoolSculpting. The scar tissue is broken down and then removed via a liposuction cannula. In some cases, even with Vaser Liposuction, the scar tissue can be hard to remove, and patients will have better but not perfect results.
Patients with PAH can benefit from VASER lipo. Paradoxical adipose hyperplasia is not a dangerous condition, but it can be physically unappealing. It does not go away without treatment. Fortunately, VASER liposuction treats it safely and effectively.
