I have had Coolsculpting on my flanks and abs with great results! My final two areas, inner thighs and lower back fat, were not conducive to the existing applicators until the Coolfit head was introduced earlier this year. This head is long and rectangular with large cooling plates so it can grab large areas of fat. Since my existing doctor did not have one yet, I called around and found a clinic that had one. Before I get into my experience with the procedure, let me just say, this new clinic was awesome. The Tech was fantastic and the treatment room had a bed as opposed to the chair that the other clinic had....much more comfy! On to the procedure, I had all four areas done on one day. Started with the inner thighs. The Tech placed the applicator lengthwise (from crotch to knee). A little pinching when the device sucked in the fat, but not bad. Snoozed for most of the hour. There was a BIG stick of 'butter' when the applicator was removed, massaging didn't hurt, the defrosting part was a tad uncomfortable. Same with the other leg. The lower back area had the same applicator attached, angled from hip to bra line. Again BIG stick of butter (which is a sign that I should have great results)! The post massage defrost was much more intense than the thighs, but subsided in about 10 mins. After procedure ran a bunch of errands without issues. Plan on going to spin today (day following procedure).
week 1 update

1 week down! Virtually no pain or swelling, just numbness and some burning, stinging. Even that was mild and periodic. I was able to do all my normal activities, wear normal clothes without any issues. The only thing was sitting on a hard surface (ie toilet seat) felt strange since the back of my thighs were sort of numb. I know 'TMI', but it brought to mind those clear seats with the barbed wire embedded in them that you used to see...just kidding! I will post photos at the 1 month mark or before, if the results are noticeable.

Well, the slight burning, stinging is completely gone and the numbness has diminished a lot. So now it's a waiting game to see some results. I'll probably wait a couple weeks to post again unless I see something meaningful. Oh, BTW, I had had my upper/lower abs done earlier in June and while I had seen some shrinkage over the following months, the fourth month (oct) was amazing. So for all those people worrying about not seeing results, be patient!

I'm posting my 1 month update. I wanted to be consistent in location that the photos were taken, so they are still in poor lighting, etc. Oh well. Anyway. I think I see a little change in the back fat grab and possibly inner thigh, but nothing earth shattering, yet. Weird thing is that I 'feel' slimmer in the lower part of the inner thigh (remember, the applicator was put on crotch to knee) and my jeans are much looser on the waist, so that is a positive. Actual weight hasn't changed.

I can't verify this via pictures or measurements, but I swear the lower part of my inner thighs (I'd say mid thigh to knee) is thinner than before my treatment! I'm still a couple months away from final results and I am planning on having a second treatment on my inner thighs, but it's encouraging to perceive some change!

I hope to get new pics up soon, but I had to leave a quick update. I just measured my thighs and both thighs have lost a 1/2 inch!!! This is two months in, so I am hoping that not only will I loose some more with treatment one, but then when I do treatment two, it will enhance the loss.
The clinic had awesome facilities and the Tech was fantastic. She had had the procedure done on the same areas I was doing, so that made it even better.
