Since the FDA approved CoolSculpting and CoolSculpting Elite for unwanted fat removal, a few patients experienced a gradual enlargement of the treated area.
This condition is called Paradoxical Hyperplasia (PAH). If you’re one of the few individuals suffering from PAH, please contact our plastic surgery clinic for treatment options.
What is Paradoxical Hyperplasia?
Paradoxical Adipose Hyperplasia (PAH) is an extremely rare complication affecting only 0.0051% of the 1.5 million+ individuals who have had CoolSculpting procedures.
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive cryolipolysis procedure that uses cooling methods to damage and eliminate subcutaneous fat tissues without damaging the skin. This process removes unwanted fat from targeted areas. However, CoolSculpting sometimes has an adverse effect, expanding rather than eliminating the fat cells. Patients usually report the initial signs of PAH approximately 6 months after the treatment.
