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 me, asked me what I wanted fixed and fit me with a handpiece. The PA suggested a smaller one but I wanted the BIG one (more bang for the buck) and it was settled.
He applied the gel barrier to my abdomen, was pretty cold. Then he hooked the handpiece up to my belly, and MAN did that suck up all that fat. He was surprised to see how much of the area it actually sucked up in there. Then after 5 minutes my belly became extremely COLD, then it started to burn. I think with very extreme cases of temperature your body is not able to distinguish heat from cold, but I was very uncomfotable. Then after 15 minutes everything went numb and I was fine.
An hour later the nurse came in and unhooked the machine and it looked like this big piece of lard under my skin where my belly fat was. Pretty cool, huh? she then massaged it all flat and I left the facility. I know its only been a few days, but I do think my belly is already shrinking, if that is possible?
Im just a tad bit sore on the belly, not having sharp shooting pains or cramps like I read about on here. Its kinda like a numb feeling. I will keep everyone posted on the progress! :))
