Fat reduction is a popular procedure that can help people achieve their desired body shape. However, it is important to be aware of the potential side effects that may occur. Common side effects are usually mild and may include pain or decreased sensation in the target area. Some people may feel faint, nauseous, or dizzy during the procedure, or may develop a rash, swelling, or other discoloration afterward.
CoolSculpting, a type of fat reduction procedure, may cause minor side effects such as irritation and pain. In rare cases, fat cells may grow more in response to the procedure rather than shrinking. During the process, you may experience a tug or pull on your skin and a severe cold. Afterward, you may feel pain, as if you were exercising. It can also cause some swelling.
Patients may also notice other side effects from CoolSculpting such as swelling, redness, or bruising which are normal and usually go away within a few days. The risk of complications increases if the surgeon works on larger body surfaces or performs several procedures during the same operation.
