I thought I would share my experience with you all. If it saves , anyone from what I went through that would be great!
The plastic surgeon did a great job with my reconstruction. For that I am thankful! After that, it was really obvious that he made recommendations that would make him the most money!
Considering cool sculpting, let me just say don’t do it. It is super expensive. In my case, it cost 2000.00 . Cool sculpting is not covered by insurance. My plastic surgeon recommended to me after my reconstruction surgery to remove the excess skin. (I didn’t know it wasn’t approved by the FDA for that area until afterwards.)Well that didn’t work. It was painful. I was told there would not be painful and I wouldn’t feel it. Wrong, I was in worst pain I have had. Even worse than any of my surgeries. I actually had to take pain pills for days afterwards. It left hard scar tissue. Of course the doctor said, it wasn’t from cool sculpting. I didn’t have it before that. I had to get weeks of physical therapy to break up the scar tissue and get my range of motion back in that area.
When I went back for a follow-up appointment with the Doctor, he said I should get cool sculpting for the excess skin. What I already had it, well maybe you should get it again. Uh, no I don’t think so!!! Needless to say I won’t be going back to him.
If you are considering cool sculpting and want to talk about it with me just let me know. This is just my experience and opinions. Others have obviously had a better experience.
