A woman in her mid 50’s who has lost 148 lbs after a gastric bypass more than 15 years before through an open upper abdominal midline incision. She had had Coolsculpting treatment of the abdomen 3 months before coming to see me, but didn’t report any improvement. Of course cryolipolysis is s treatment for fat, and her problem is excess skin, so the lack of improvement is not a surprise. It is always important to make the diagnosis before selecting a treatment.
Our patient is now seen 18 months after her abdominoplasty. The scars have continued to fade.
