Fat Freeze: Side Effects & Risks

The Fat Freeze procedure is not for everyone.  You should not have the Fat Freeze procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia, paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria or cold agglutinin disease.  Tell your doctor if you have any medical conditions including recent surgery, pre-existing hernia and any known sensitivities or allergies.

During the procedure you may experience sensations of mild pinching, intense cold, pulling, tugging, aching, tingling, stinging and cramping at the treatment site.  These sensations subside as the area becomes numb.  Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary swelling, blanching, bruising, redness, firmness, tingling, stinging, tenderness, cramping, aching, itching, or skin sensitivity and sensation of fullness in the back of the throat after submental or submandibular area treatment.  Rare side effects may also occur.  Fat Freeze may cause a visible enlargement in the treated area which may develop two to five months after treatment and requires surgical intervention for correction.

Results and individual experience may vary.
