I recently underwent a Lower Abdominal Resection due to an Ischemic bowel. Could Cool Sculpting have triggered it?

Dr. Dean Kane Q & AScreen Shot 2015-06-02 at 8.19.01 PM Q. I recently underwent a Lower Abdominal Resection due to an Ischemic bowel. Could CoolSculpting have triggered it? A. I am sorry for your misfortune! ​ ​CoolSculpting (CS) uses a suction applicator to draw in a bulge of skin and fat which is cooled to near freezing to perform its fat reduction. The cooling plates and temperature sensors are located on either side of the folded tissue bulge within the applicator and will not allow the equipment to cool through the abdominal muscles and fascia or reach the bowel. ​ The http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/intestinal-ischemia/basics/causes/con-20023818 reference may help you further understand the causes of intestinal ischemia. ​You may wish to meet with your surgeon or primary care physician to discuss the particular cause(s) of your ischemic bowel. I hope you are better! ​ ​All the best!
