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

Q. Help! I had my last liposuction procedure Oct 25, 2015 which is my 4th time having it done over the years with the same doctor. Well, I wasn’t satisfied this last time. I was told he wasn’t able to do his best due to the scar tissue I had that he couldn’t break up. Will CoolSculpting work for me although I have scar tissue? And is there anything I can do to get rid of the scar tissue? I’m seeking an hour glass look.

A. Sorry for your troubles. Options include:

  1. Deep scar massage with or without “subcision” and fat grafting
  2. CoolSculpting may or may not help depending on the residual fat you have surrounding the scar
  3. Endermologie may or may not help

Consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon with all these tools to make a more non-biased recommendation. All the best!
