I am a 49 year woman. I 5'7" 1/2 and have always weight between 128 - 136. I had maintained a flat stomach all of my life until I hit my early 40's. It was driving me nuts to suddenly have this belly appear.
On June 21 I had cool sculpting performed at my Dermatologist office on my belly area. As others have mentioned it is shocking how much it sucks you in to the machine but certainly not painful or anything. I did feel as though I had to whisper and not inhale/exhale to deeply for fear it would pop off. In about 8 minutes I was totally comfortable. I had brought my Ipad and sat and read a book. Truly, I thought it was a piece of cake. When my time was up, I was dreading them taking me off of the suction because I had heard that it hurts when they massage the area.
My belly looked like a giant stick of frozen butter - the nurse said she had never seen one as frozen as mine. She started to massage and yes, it is definitely uncomfortable but not screaming agony or anything. I then got up, got dressed and went shopping and resumed my day. By the end of the day my belly was very tender and very swollen. Again though, completely manageable. For 2 or so weeks my belly was still fatter than my original size and sore. Not only is it tender but ITCHY! I just put it out of my mind and kept telling myself that it is only temporary and it will be worth it. Some people have said how horrible it is, I would not say that at all, simply uncomfortable at times.
I am now a little over 3 weeks since I had it done. I can see that definitely my belly is going down in size and I only have a very slight itching, no pain. I am confident that I am going to have good results. In fact, I have scheduled to have my love handles done too! I wish I had photos to share but unfortunately I didn't think to take before pix. I am going to ask when I go back in (at the 3 month mark) to see if they will email me my before picture that they took.
It has been one month since I had my procedure. I...

My lower ab (first procedure) looks GREAT!, my upper ab (second procedure) which was done a few weeks ago is starting to show some difference too.
My opinion so far - Little discomfort and TOTALLY worth it!!!
I am going to submit before and after pics when I am all done.
I am so so happy with this. It has now been 6...
