Can I Coolsculpt the same area more than three times?

I’ve already done Coolsculpting twice (treatment to transform). My doctor wants me to do another 2 treatments in the same area. Is it safe or do I risk Paradoxical hyperplasia of fat?

There is no reason why you cannot have multiple Coolsculpting treatments to the same area. As long as there is a pocket of fat which you are able to pinch, you are able to treat the area. It may be worth waiting three months between treatments to see what kind of results you are able to obtain before investing in another round of cycles. Paradoxical adipose hyperplasia is a rare, poorly understood side-effect, but the number of treatment cycles doesn’t seem to affect the likelihood of developing it. As far as we know, you will either develop PAH, or you won’t: the number of cycles is not a factor.
