Had hiatel hernia repair as an infant. Can I get Coolsculpting on my stomach?

I had hiatel hernia repair as an infant. Can I get Coolsculpting on my stomach? I am in my 30’s and healthy.

How was your hernia repaired? Hiatus hernias are when a small part of the stomach slides upwards through the diaphragm into the chest. As long as you have no further issues resulting from your hiatus hernia, you should be able to have Coolsculpting with no issues. If you have any ongoing issues from the hernia, or any other hernias from other surgical scars, you may need further review by a surgeon prior to your Coolsculpting treatment.
