39 Years Old, 170lb - Pelham NY

I went for a consultation and the Dr. Told me I would need 3 sections in order to see results.
I never had any kids and I was very active until I decided to quit smoking. I gained 20lb in 2 years and most of it went to my stomach. I'm 5.8 170lb. So technically I was the perfect candidate to have coolsculpting done.
I just got it done 2 days ago.
Like everyone said, the first 5 minutes were a little painful but nothing too crazy, then the are gets numb and you just relax. I decided to have the sessions done at the same day so I could see the results evenly.
On my upper ab, the Dr. Didn't use the suction device since I didn't have too much skin, we went with another attachment - as a plate- that didn't sucked the skin which was much better.
I will be updating this post as long as I can with my results and so far I recommend to anyone thinking about getting liposuction to try coolsculpting before!
Yes my stomach is bruised, itching and sore but nothing like it's the end of the world. It feels like I went to the gym and had a hardcore workout. I can't wait to see the final results in 6 weeks.

The cool smooth plate

this is the new attachment I was talking about. Much less painful the the suction one.

Day 5

it itches from inside out! so annoying! lol. Ab is numb still and a little sensitive to touches. Nothing abnormal like some people described.

Day 13 days evolution

Ok, after 13 days, no pain, no itching, stomach a little numb still but all bruises are gone.

20 days after

Itching here and there but other than that, nothing else. I went back to the gym today. And I had no pain what so ever when doing my workout.

5 weeks today

My stomach feels less bloated and more firm but in regards size, it feels the same as my last picture I guess.

*** important ***

I forgot to mention you will pee a lot, I never had to wake up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom to pee but after coolsculpting I constantly see myself doing it. Maybe because I'm also on a low carb diet or something... I just didn't want to forget to mention it since someone might be experiencing the same thing!

8 weeks since my procedure

Now I guess this is basically how my stomach will look like, considering I will begin exercising and go back to my low carb/sugar diet I hope to tone it a little more... update soon!

The girls were lovely, Erica, the technician was very nice and professional. she was always checking on me during the procedure to make sure I wasn't uncomfortable or feeling any kind of pain. Dr. Jandali Marked down my stomach to make sure the equipment would go in the right places. And took some before pictures. Very professional

Nice results! Treating multiple areas gives the best results. CoolSculpting is a wonderful treatment for reduction of those fat bulges that are resistant to diet exercise. Particularly the abdomen and the love handles. Our physicians apply the applicators. Our patients love the treatment. Good luck and be well. Best, Michael Persky, MD Encino,CA

Thank you!!! I wish you luck. I hope your Dr. was as nice as mine. And I hope he really told you the very truth I said before on my post: it wil only reduce 20-25% of your fat and it wont work if you are overweight and most importantly, the fat will came back if you gain weight! If you are legible for the procedure, do it! Have no fear!! xo

He did,i went in for smart-lipo&he stated because of my dark skin,i will not like th elipo scars,yes they will eventually fade but there will be a lot. He recommended cool sculpting and i must say i was not happy or 100% sold,He said i know you are picky&a perfectionist. If you try it&don't like it i will discount the smart-ipo. He stated 20% fat cells,he has also done this procedure&he likes it. I am NOT FAT Or overweight. This is why he said i would be a great candidate!! :). I am torn by the reviews where they said they had zero results &then others had great results such as yourself. No in between. Either yes or no. I don't think that's fair or true. It had to have made a tiny difference just not enough where people may have liked it especially when they spend a lot of $$$$$. I understand that. I just feel,it did it's work &now we have to exercise&eat better. Thanks Cindyny2

Are you absolutely sure this was a Zeltiq Coolsculpting machine?
  • Reply
IMO, I would not say you are the perfect candidate. This machine is NOT for weight loss! It is for people who have dieted & exercised down to their perfect weight, yet still have stubborn pockets of fat.

Right, Im not concern about weight loss .... if i were Id have gone for a Tummy tuck.

I'm just saying, you may not be happy with the results. I hope you are though!
