I couldn't get lipo because my iron levels are really low. I received coolsculpting on my lower and upper abs. the 1st 3 days was fine. on the 4th day i was experiencing extreme pains. for 2 weeks straight i could not have anything touch my stomach. I tried norco's and I had to take 3 just to go to sleep. I finally came up with a plan, where i used cold compresses on my stomach during the day,... more
I'm a 41 yo female with no kids. I work out vigorously 3-4x/week. I'm 5'6" and weigh 139 lbs. I'm good with my diet and stopped all dairy and chicken over the past two years. I decided on CoolSculpt because after a traumatic care accident where I broke my femur and had surgery for that, a fractured foot, and facial plastics, I promised no more painful surgeries.
I had my lower abdomen done... more
I'm so excited about the results of my coolsculpting treatments! I had the larger application on my lower stomach and I had my love handles done twice last year. I think I'm going to get my stomach done again. I see a difference but I want more. My esthitician told me that she thought I would need more than one treatment anyway. Not too overweight but I've been trying to lose weight and I have... more
So a little bit about me, I am a 29 year old female. I have struggled with my weight for my entire life, I am 5'4 I have always been over weight coming in at around 155-170. It got really bad about 4 years ago when I hit my all time high at 237lbs. I decided enough was enough and with the support of my husband I did something about it. I did the P90x workout, in 90 days I lost... more
While I feel the procedure was done correctly, it just did not work for me. There was MINIMAL change and for $1500 I expected more. The technician told me that my tummy would be flat (I was trim to begin with). I think she lost my original photos because we could only compare month 4 photos to month 3 photos. I saved money for a year to have this doen and you can imagine my disapointment. Now... more
Hello I had cool sculpting done on 3/30/12 at my Primary Doctor's office. He had a demonstration and a rep from Zeltiq the week prior. They were offering 20% off if you signed up that night, and it came in at $960 with the discount. I had the largest one available for my ab (belly bottom area).
The below is my experience (I had my partner with me, for support, who will also be getting... more
I had the procedure done today and like many I too was concerned about anything painful ( I am a sucker when it comes to pain). The cold pad definitely alerted me prior to the suction device and boy did it grab a chunk of my belly!
It was a little painful at first until the freezing and numbness kicked in and then it was downhill from there while counting down the time. I will admit it... more
I had Coolsculpting done to my belly (ABS area) 2 days ago. I am a mid sized male, weight 174 lbs, work out 3 times weekly or more, but was unable to get rid of that belly fat thanks to family genetics. I've had liposuction to my neck, but just wasnt ready to do it to the ol belly. I scheduled an appt with the doctor and went the next day.
I arrived to the facility and they interviewed... more
I've had problems with my belly area for as long as I can remember. My pants always accentuated the lovely "muffin top" I had. I did Cool Sculpting on my lower stomach and was very pleased. There was hardly any pain involved and I was numb for the first 2 weeks after being treated. That didn't stop me from my busy schedule, which was very important.
Overall, I'm very... more
