What is the best approach to achieve a fuller look while minimizing the chance of developing keloids?
Options do exist
Mar 17, 2023
Unfortunately, keloids are a risk with any surgical procedure, especially in those that are already prone to developing them. There are several options that exist to help minimize the risk of this and your surgeon can discuss those with you. In regards to achieving a fuller looking result, you have two options. One would be using your own tissue and adding volume to the breast with fat grafting which is completed through minimal incisions. The other option would be a breast augmentation with...
Can I have CoolSculpting after a heart attack, stents and while I am on blood thinners?
CoolSculpting after Heart Procedure
Aug 5, 2020
Generally speaking coolsculpting was studied on healthy well patients with no recent medical issues. With that being said your cardiologist would have to clear you prior to any treatment. Secondly, in rare cases people sometimes get light headed during treatment or faint and although not common at all this may not be a good situation to be in with your heart history. I would personally have you wait at least a year or longer. Of course being on coumadin as well could give you bruising or...
Can I get CoolSculpting if I have had a shingles before?
Shingles after CoolSculpting
Aug 2, 2020
We have been doing CoolSculpting over 6 years and we have not had this issue nor do I think it will happen again. However you can always do a round of antivirals beforehand just to be sure. It is not a contraindication for treatment although if you're in a current outbreak I would wait until it's calmed down and resolved.

PAH after CoolSculpting
Aug 2, 2020
This rare side effect from coolsculpting can occur on any part of the body. I have not personally seen it occur on the arms but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist. We have seen it on the abdomen, bra line, love handles.

Ultherapy in the neck area
Aug 2, 2020
ULtherapy is approved for treatment on the face, neck and chest. An experienced provider will advise you on the areas they can not treat (around some nerve areas and over the trachea) but rest assured the neck is an area of ultherapy we treat all the time. Best of luck.
