CoolSculpting New Tissue Growth

Some people who received the non-surgical fat-reduction treatment CoolSculpting have experienced a severe side effect known as Paradoxical Adipose Hyperplasia (PAH) or Paradoxical Hyperplasia (PH). PAH causes new growth of fat cells or other tissue in the treatment area, resulting in bumps, bulges, and hard knots. These growths may develop in a square or rectangular shape similar to a “stick of butter”.

This disfigurement may be permanent or require one or more surgeries or treatments such as liposuction to correct. This may result in significant costs for the victim in addition to the cost of the original CoolSculpting procedure.

Notwithstanding claims relating to this product, the drug/medical device remains approved by the U.S. FDA.

CoolSculpting Promoted in Pop Culture

CoolSculpting has been promoted by celebrities and on popular television shows including “Keeping up with the Kardashians” and “The Dr. Oz Show” along with Gwyneth Paltrow’s wellness site. More recently though, Supermodel, Linda Evangelista came forward with her story in People magazine outlining disastrous results including development of PAH after she received CoolSculpting treatments.

Some people who received CoolSculpting and developed PAH or PH may now be considering lawsuits against Allergan and AbbVie.

  • Who am I talking to when I call Seeger Weiss?

    Almost of our calls are initially handled by our talented reception team. Depending on the nature of the call, they may connect you to one of Seeger Weiss’s intake specialists (for prospective clients) or to one of our case management paralegals (for current clients). These teams are here to answer your questions, provide context, and help guide you through process of becoming a client or of pursuing your case in court.

  • Do I have to pay?

    The vast majority of the work Seeger Weiss does is on a contingency basis. That means we are paid only once we have secured financial compensation via trial or settlement—usually a percentage of the total award. Individual retainer agreements, which prospective clients must review and sign to retain Seeger Weiss as their legal representation, will share information on how your contingency fee works.

  • I just signed a retainer, what happens next?

    Once you’ve signed a retainer agreement with Seeger Weiss, the firm becomes your legal representation. For the firm, our next step is to gather as much information about your case as possible. Typically, that means you’ll sign authorization forms that allow us to speak on your behalf to or obtain information from other organizations and institutions, such as a primary care physician’s office or a hospital.
