You probably have a lot of questions about how CoolSculpting works and whether it's right for you after having a baby. Below we have compiled some of the most frequently asked questions by new moms considering CoolSculpting.
Read on for answers about safety, results, ideal candidates, what to expect, and more. Our goal is to provide you with all the details you need to determine if CoolSculpting is the solution you’ve been looking for to slim down after pregnancy and get your pre-baby body back.
Yes, it is generally safe to undergo CoolSculpting after pregnancy.
It does not affect any other tissues or organs, so it is considered very safe. But still, it's best to wait at least 3 months after giving birth before considering CoolSculpting. This allows your body to recover and hormones to stabilize after pregnancy.
Coolsculpting can be done after a c-section delivery, but you'll want to wait longer than if you had a vaginal birth.Aim to wait at least 6 months after a c-section to allow complete healing of the incision site before undergoing CoolSculpting.
The cold from the device may irritate or damage the incision if done too soon. Your doctor can evaluate the incision to confirm it is fully healed before clearing you for treatment.
No, CoolSculpting is not recommended while breastfeeding. The procedure may release toxins as the fat cells crystallize and die, so it's best to wait until after you discontinue breastfeeding. These toxins can potentially be passed through breastmilk and harm your baby.
Wait at least 3-6 months after stopping breastfeeding before considering CoolSculpting for the safest results.
There is no evidence that CoolSculpting impacts fertility or future pregnancies. The procedure eliminates fat cells in the treated areas only without affecting any reproductive organs. Many women safely become pregnant and deliver healthy babies after having CoolSculpting treatments in the past.
As always, discuss any pre-existing conditions with your doctor, but CoolSculpting is not expected to cause issues with conception or carrying a pregnancy later on.
Coolsculpting offers many benefits for reshaping the body after pregnancy. It can reduce stubborn fatty deposits that diet and exercise didn't eliminate post-baby. Treatment can help contour the stomach, love handles, back, arms, thighs, bra fat, double chin and more.
Some women see an improvement in stretch marks. There is no surgery or downtime so moms can get back to their routines quickly.
After CoolSculpting the stomach, expect moderate swelling, bruising, numbness and tenderness for about 2 weeks post-treatment. Wear compression garments to help minimize discomfort and promote drainage of excess fluid.
You may look bloated as your body naturally eliminates the dead fat cells over 2-4 months. Results improve gradually and become more noticeable after a couple months.
During CoolSculpting, the cold temperature crystallizes and destroys fat cells in the treated area. Over the next 2-4 months, your body’s macrophages (a type of white blood cell) gradually digests the dead fat cells, metabolizing the contents and eliminating the waste.
The destroyed fat cells cannot grow back, so results are permanent as long as you maintain your weight with proper diet and exercise. Only the treated fat cells are affected, leaving surrounding tissues unharmed.
Coolsculpting is effective at eliminating unwanted fat deposits. However, it does not significantly tighten loose or sagging skin. Skin may appear smoother and firmer as fat loss occurs, but the treatment itself does not stimulate collagen production or skin tightening.
To address loose skin after pregnancy, you may need additional procedures like laser skin resurfacing or skin tightening treatments.
It's important to wear proper post-procedure compression garments after CoolSculpting to get the best results.
Your provider will recommend clinical-grade compression wear for the treated body areas. This helps minimize swelling, prevent bruising, and allow the body to naturally eliminate the disrupted fat cells.
Follow any instructions for how long to wear compression day and night. Avoid overly tight or restrictive clothes that could irritate the treated area. Loose, soft clothing is best for the first 1-2 weeks while you heal.
It's unlikely you'll see noticeable changes from just one CoolSculpting appointment, especially if treating a larger body area. Most patients require 2-4 treatment cycles spaced several weeks apart for optimal fat reduction in each area.
Coolsculpting is not an effective treatment for removing or improving the appearance of stretch marks by itself. The procedure eliminates fat cells but does not address textural changes in the skin from pregnancy stretching.
You've put your body through so much during pregnancy and childbirth. Now it's time to give yourself the gift of getting your pre-baby body back. With CoolSculpting, the body-slimming results are real, lasting, and life-changing.

"The treatment itself was not uncomfortable. Afterwords, I felt great. I didn't really notice anything for about 30 days. After day 30 until about a month later, I started noticing that my favorite jeans were not as tight anymore. I wasn't having to suck in to get them buttoned. And by that two month period after my CoolSculpting
"It's subtle at first, and then a month later you look and go, "Wow - It really did something!" It really moved the bar for me, and I'm feeling better about myself already. It feels so good to put on anything and know I look as good as I've ever looked. And I didn't say that or feel that when I was in my 20's, 30's, and 40's."
