Plastic Surgeon Dr. Dean Kane of Baltimore Answers Question Regarding CoolSculpting
Q. I am very bothered by this pooch I have! I have dropped 25 pounds and kept it off for a year, but no matter what I do, this stupid pooch won’t go away! This is my biggest insecurity and I’m looking to see if CoolSculpting is an option or if I’m stuck with this darn thing… One of my other concerns is how long does it take for your stomach to look normal again? Am I going to have to stay covered for weeks?
A. Congrats on losing your weight.
Many of us carry such a “pooch”. This is a wonderful place for CoolSculpting to work and while it is not guaranteed may even shrink some skin too. You will be able to enjoy the summer as this is a non-invasive and non-surgical option.
If you are left with some wiggle or jiggle after CoolSculpting and wish no surgery, consider the minimally invasive ThermiTIGHT procedure to tighten skin. You will have swelling and be required to wear a compression garment for the tummy, so consider this at a time when you are covered.
With each procedure, it will take about 3 months to obtain your optimal appearance.
