Coolsculpting Inner Thighs to Treat “Pear Shape”

Coolsculpting induces cryolipoylsis of the fat cells treated and induces apoptosis of the cells which leads to cell death of 20% of the cells treated. This may remove the fat cells but does not tighten the skin. Complete evaluation of the area to be treated may consider other non surgical treatments as well such as […]


PAH!! What to do?

Paradoxical Adipose Hyperplasia is a vexing and unusual sequela following Coolsculpting. While the incidence of this is very rare, with the treatments of Coolsculpting getting into the millions it is understandable why more cases are being reported. I have heard of cases from other physicians and even had a patient myself who was well documented […]


Medial thighs are tough

The skin overlying the medial thighs is very thin. When we perform medial thighplasty procedures the scars are an issue and often lead us to seek out other treatments which may result in sub optimal results. In the case of Coolsculpting consider combination treatments with other heat based therapies as an adjunct or even a replacement. Post […]


PAH & Coolsculpting

Fat cells which are treated with cryolipolysis are induced to a state of cell death called apoptosis. This usually takes about 3 months to be fully realized. In a very small number of patients it is almost as if the reverse occurs. In practices that do many procedures this is more likely to be seen. […]

One of the modifications involves placing quilting sutures. While this is a widely used technique it too has some shortcomings. First, it […]

What is PAH after Coolsculpting!!

As Coolsculpting treatments reach into the millions, more stories of PAH (paradoxical Adipose Hypertrophy) seem to be circulating. The process of crylipolysis is effective and reliable at inducing programed cell death. If the reports of adipose hyperplasia continue this may represent an opportunity for further investigation. However, in cases where there is excess skin involved […]

Don’t Freeze Your Eyeballs

Many patients have asked, “Well, if Coolsculpting gets rid of fat, why can’t I just put ice on the area I want to melt away the fat?” Nope. It will not work like that. And we would not recommend putting ice on your eyelids to melt away upper eyelid fat. Without adequate supervision you could […]
