Worth It So Far! - Tampa, FL

So far I have had my love handles (2 small sections in the front & two small sections in the back on both sides- $400 each- total $1600 for love handles) & my inner thighs done (both were small sections at $400 each).

I had the front love handles done first one week ago (2 sections- 2 hrs total) & the back love handles & inner thighs done yesterday (4 sections- 4 hours).

The procedure itself was not painful at all for me. When the Doctor places the applicator on your body, you do feel strong suction & cooling. Felt like a strong pinch of a hand onto my side. After about 3-4 mins, I felt nothing at all. Laying on my side, I slept for about 1/2 hr & then texted & checked my email. After the hour was up the tech came in, she removed the appicator & told me "not to look" at the area. I guess some people are a bit squimmish because it looks funny, but I am not bothered by it. It lloked like a raised rectangular bump. The tech placed a towel on the area & then massasged it out. It flattened & was just very cold to the touch, but totally numb. It stayed numb for the first two days & then it began to tingle/itch a bit. Kind of like a itch from the inside- like it was healing.

After about 5 days I did notice the areas going down & feeling flatter. Yesterday I did the back love handles & my inner thighs. I felt more of a oulling/pinching sensation on my inner thighs, but it is probably because that is where I have the most fat on my body. My inner thighs are a little sore, like they would be from a good workout. My back love handles are numb.

Over all I had a few tiny spots that were reddish & looked like they might bruise, but no real brusing so far. I will update my results & post pics soon. In two days I will have my stomach done (2 large sections- one upper & one lower). Can't wait to see the results!

My Doctor is a lisc Plastic Surgeon. Her office is very nice & the staff are all very friendly & professional. several members of her staff have had the Coolsculpting done & the Dr herself has had two treatments on her stomach & is very pleased with the results. I think that speaks volumes, when the Dr herself has had the procedure done. They offered me water, coffee & snacks during my procedure and did everything they could to make me feel comfortaable & relaxed.
