Very Easy and Pain Free - Newport Beach, CA

I had a baby less than a year ago and was left with a hard to loose tummy bulge. I saw results in about 2 weeks and there was not much discomfort during or after the procedure as I anticipated. I can't wait to do the procedure again!


I had my tummy done 4 days ago. The only uncomfortable part during the procedure was the initial suction. I was in no pain and other than having to sit still for so long, it was fine. I had no pain when the area was massaged. It felt like after having children and your tummy is massaged. It's been 4 days and so far I'm fine. I was back at work the next day (professional office attire) and the only thing I feel is numb and tingly to the touch. I did wear a compression garment for 2 days because I was scared after reading some of these reviews. I am 55, 5'2" and weight 135. Everyone else I know that had it was so much younger than me so I got worried that it would be harder on me but it wasn't.

I am now on day 8 and yesterday the stinging feeling increased. It is better standing or walking and I've found that putting an icepack on for a few minutes really helps. It is not unbearable, but mostly annoying, especially since I am at work.

I think this person must be a plant - for one, the procedure IS painful, everyone has experienced some discomfort from it. Also, you can't see results for 2-4 months, that is how long it takes for your lymphatic system to discharge of the dead fat cells.

If you want to know how it really feels to have Zeltiq/Coolsculpting done you might want to do some more reading. I captured the whole painful experience in my blog.
