I first saw a Groupon for this Cool Sculpting procedure, and I was immediately intrigued. I am a 30 year old woman who works out 4-5 days a week, eat relatively health, but have always seemed to have my stomach as my trouble area, no matter how thin I am. I am 5'7" 145 LBS, and excited to see what the months ahead have in store for me! I went in yesterday 6.4.12, and went in with little expectations, as i have a high tolerance for pain for the most part. I sat down in the chair and the doctor drew on my stomach here he would be applying the suction cup. I had three areas of my stomach treated. The staff was VERY friendly and made me feel comfortable, and even let two of my girlfriends come in and sit with me. When the cool pack was applied the doctor explained the weird suctioning I would experience. Yes, I must say it was a little awkward but not unbearable....I would say getting waxed is more painful, as the pain subsides and the area is numb, you barely notice it is doing anything. When your hour is up, the doctor's assistant then rubbed my stomach, and massaged it. This felt a little strange, but because it was numb you barely feel anything...honestly it's kind of funny to see your fat frozen coming out of the cup. After my two lower stomach areas we treated I felt fine, and continued my day as normal. I slept fine, and worked out this morning with no uncomfortable feeling that would restrain my efforts. I then went in after lunch to have my upper stomach done, just one area treated. This area was a little more pinching when I got suctioned in, but subsided like yesterday's. Today my lower area was a little numb but doesn't feel strange at all. No bruises or swelling. I feel great and can't wait to report my progress along the way. I would say some of these reviews are very un detailed and don't really give me an idea of the complete after math and updates with pictures, I will do my best to change that. :-)
So it's been a week now, and yesterday I started...

The doctor is not there for most of the procedure, just to start the procedure, and leaves the room, there is really no need for him to be there!
