Is there a non-surgical solution to paradoxical adipose hyperplasia resulting from Coolsculpting?

Plastic Surgeon Dr. Dean Kane of Baltimore Answers Question Regarding CoolSculpting

Q. Is there a non-surgical solution to paradoxical adipose hyperplasia resulting from Coolsculpting? A. Thanks for this question. PAH or paradoxical adipose hyperplasia following CoolSculpting (CS) is poorly understood. This puzzling opposite response to cooling fat tissues is stated to occur in one of 300,000 patients. Much like the undesirable and reverse response in a ropey, hypertrophic scar rather than the formation of a thin normal scar, PAH is thought to be the genetic stimulation of fat cell hyperplasia rather than the desired and expected apoptotic death of these cells. Other than liposuction removal of these fat cells, there is no known no-surgical option from PAH. I hope this was just a question and not a untoward result for you. If it was, contact your CS Specialist and Zeltiq for assistance. All the best!   This information is not meant as medical advice. It is provided solely for education.
