Coolsculpting

I was wondering if anyone knows about this procedure. I am one yr post Kidney and cannot lose the extra belly I obtained through this process. I was thinking about coolsculpting my belly far above the incision line and where the new Kidney is placed. Does anyone know anything about this topic?

  • Hi! I know this is a late reply to your post, but I am actually laying in a chair undergoing seven cycles of cool sculpture. My plastic surgeon asked for my post operative report from my transplant, which was August 2018. I don't have a small scar where my kidney is, I have a Frontline scar from my sternum to my pelvic bone because they had to remove both large kidneys. They used the same opening to insert my new kidney. My plastic surgeon does not see any problems; however, if you would like to know more information or how the procedure went for me, please reach out and send me a message. Thank you and good luck!

  • hi  i am 6 months post liver and kidney transplant. i also have a problem with extra belly fat above my incisions   i dont really know what to do about it...after transplant i weighed 106 lbs was too skinny and looked anorexic  no muscle etc.  now i weigh 130 lbs which is good for me the doc said and i look better but all my pants fit very well in the lower part of my stomach which is flat but right under the breast bone i have 2 bulges on either side from stitches 

     

    • Hi carol! I researched it a bit and everything I read was that it was ok to do as long as it is not over the transplant and incision site - stay tuned and I will let you know what my team says 

  • Not sure if this is adviseable post transplant.

    Have you addressed your diet and exercise?

    • Hi Rise! Yes I tried both diet and exercise so I will research the topic further.  Do you happen to know anything about it or know someone who has done the service? Any info would’ve appreciated!
