I just had cool sculpting done 3 days ago. The initial 5-10 min were uncomfortable but tolerable. I had my abdomen and inner thighs done. It took about 3 hrs. I had it done on Thursday and went to yoga on Friday. I'm still numb and tender to the touch. It's starting to get a little itchy but aleve has worked well for me. Still to early to tell if it was worth it. I'll keep ya updated... more
Area: lower abs
Procedure was uncomfortable for a few minutes, then you go numb. Not painful.
Day 1-2: no pain, needed no prescripbed meds, nor OTC pain relievers.
Days 3-7: A good amount of swelling. Moments where it felt like multiple bee stings in the area of the procedure. Med-free during the day, but took hydrocodone at night (7.5/500) to ensure rest.
Day 8 - Current: No pain. Swelling... more
Hi Everyone - I am a 51 yo male, 5'9", 162 lbs., BMI 23.8, 32" waist - really quite slim except for this tube of excess fat around my midsection. I could easily drop more weight to lessen the size of my midsection, however, in doing so, I will also lose size elsewhere on my body where I really don't need to lose a bit. I am hoping that Coolsculpting will prove to be the solution to this... more
I was told i was a perfect candidate for this proceedure so I gave it a try. I had my lower belly and side flanks done. Have not seen any change at all after 2,5 months. I will give it another 1,5 months and see if anything....I did not experience any pain after just a little numb.. after reading so many ohter reviews about pain and tingling etc I think maybe machine was not working right more
I had my procedure done on 3 May for lower abs with the medium size applicator. I agree with EVERYTHING about the pain and lack of information. My pain kicked in on Day 4 !! I woke up in the middle of night in pain! Its felt like hot, itchy burning electric twinges. The nurse prescribed Hydrocodon/ Lortab last week for the pain and helped me sleep at night! Ice packs and frozen corn worked... more
Ok, I posted about 2 weeks after my cool sculpt of the lower an bulge. I am. 48 y/o female slim, except for the inherited bulge I got from my Moms side of the family. No kids to blame it on, just have had it all my life really. I got good results, I think great than 22% reduction they advertise. The procedure took an hour, and my bulge was totally frozen, like the consistency of hard sherbet... more
I had the cool sculpting done three days ago. I'm 5'3 about 120lbs. I have a small bulge in my mid section that has always bothered me and decided on the treatment after consultation. The treatment itself was fairly easy. I had both obliques done, lasting 1 our per side, 2 hours total. I was VERY nervous as I have never done any surgical or non surgical cosmetic procedure. I used the... more
I had cool sculpting on my flanks and hip area first as I heard the tummy is painful. It has been 3 days now and I am a little numb and sore but the procedure wasnt too bad at all. If this works, I will have the tummy done next. I will update after about a month to see if I am noticing any changes yet. more
