I had coolsculpting done on Feb 27. The 8 applicator on the lower abdomen. I have always had a pooch of varying size even at my thinnest. My mother has it as well so exercise and diet do not remove it. After 2 children my skin was quite a bit looser and the pooch was just something I lived with. I dress in such a way that it is not apparent and at my consultation the Dr. and PA. were not sure I was a canidate until I did the full reveal ;). Intially I was scheduled for lower abdomen and both love handles but after reading all the reviews I reduced it to just lower abdomen as I was concerned about the pain. I have a pretty high pain threshold and I have to agree with others here. While this is not unbearable birth or terrible migrane pain it is definately way above a bad period pain. The procedure was quite uncomfortable but bearable, about day 3 the stabbing nerve pain began and is still going strong. I am functional but feel the stabbing pins and needles pain all day. If the result are good to great it will be worth it but I am hoping for a significant change. I had photos taken at the office. I will have them email them so I can post them.
My Doctor: Leyda Elizabeth Bowes, MD
My consultation was with both the Dr and the PA Maylen. Maylen performed the procedure.
