Feb. 9 ---Like many others on here, I had a little area of fat under my belly button. I am 47, 5'8" and have a slim, tight build at 129 lbs. However, that little area always stayed jelly belly for some reason. (no children).

While I did notice the belly area flatter, on the right side of my belly button I was left with a half a golf ball size lump.
I thought another treatment might help. I did another one where the technician concentrated on that area but still the same.
Am planning to go back and show Dr. and ask advice.
OK--did 2 additional Cool Sculpt sessions on lump...

So what seemed like a good idea and initially cost $750, has now cost me $2500 and if I want lipo $3500 for a grand total of 6 thousand dollars! Quite frankly I am afraid to get lipo, afraid I will end up with even more issues.
