I had heard about coolsculpting a few months ago and had decided to ramp up my workouts and clean up my diet before making the decision to try it. At my age and with hormonal issues, my belly fat (which I never had till I was over 50) would not budge, so I bit the bullet and went to have three areas treated (upper abs and love handles). It was funny for me to learn in the consult that the squishier the fat is, the more likely there will be a better outcome.
The only pain during the procedure was when they put the applicator on. It was a huge pinch, but it passed in under a minute, and once the cooling started, the procedure was quite comfortable. I do have to say I had swelling which is almost gone as of today (day 5). The bruising was also minor and is almost gone.
I'll keep updating here as I see results, but the technician and nurse practitioner said they expect an excellent outcome.

My first follow up with the doc is on 9/10, and at that point I will have them give me copies of my before and 2 month photos and will post them. I hope that will give some hope to the 'not so skinny with just a little bulge' crowd to consider trying this.
Last Friday was my 4 week mark since I had my...

When I go for my first follow up in Sept I'm gonna have the lower abs done that same day since I am so thrilled with the results so far!

I went ahead and had lower abs done today, and am prepared for the discomfort I might have from the first experience. I can deal with 10 days of owies....
Pics coming, and hopefully they will encourage more like me who thought only skinny people with a little extra bump could benefit from this.
I finally have a couple pictures to post. Compared...

Despite the discomfort I had with the first coolsculpting session, when I started seeing results, I figured I could deal with a couple of weeks of discomfort/pain, but I have to say that the lower abs have not been a problem except some bruising and mild soreness and this is day 8.
I don't want people to think I'm a lazy fat ass...I was in great shape was far as body shape until my hormones changed. I play competition level racquetball 4x a week and lift weights, and if anything undereat and still got here. Being old and fat sure is an advantage when playing racquetball since I am underestimated :)
I have been reading others' updates and wanted to...

When I was in for my 3 month follow and was so excited at the 3" loss, I asked if they could treat my lower abs the same day, which they did. While I was having the treatment, the nurse practitioner told me the Zeltique rep initially referred to the treatment as 'one and done' then months later told them it often had to be repeated...
Incidentally, I still maintain a very active lifestyle, eat healthy, lift weights, play racquetball often, and have not gained weight...yet that roll came back and the lower abs never left. Pooh!
I felt these practitioners were very professional, very pleasant to be around, and encouraged me to get back in touch with them if I have any questions or concerns. They are the only provider of this service near me, but I was lucky to find a good group.
