CoolSculpting is a non-surgical procedure that uses a controlled device to freeze and destroy fat. Fatty areas are gently pinched between the CoolSculpting applicator, which cools the area to a temperature that causes fat cells to crystallize and die. This treatment isn't intended for massive weight loss, but for treating problem areas like loves handles, stomach rolls, and arm fat.

I did an extensive amount of research on the procedure before I had it done. All but one review said the procedure wasn't painful, and there was no down time and next to no recovery time. The nurses and consultant told me I could even work out the day after the procedure. My experience was... READ MORE

After months of careful and fastidious research, I decided to take the leap and get Coolsculpting done on my abdomen (sides and a large applicator on pouch). I was really pleased with Carla at Marina Plastic Surgery, and I ensured that I took the following precautions: 1. Go to a real doctor.... READ MORE

I have really researched this procedure before taking the plunge. I expected the worst. I was pleasantly surprised. I add upper abdomen done, lower abdomen, and flanks. From what I read upper and lower abdomen would hurt the worst I was fine and pain free with abdomen area. I looked forward to... READ MORE

I went in for coolsculpting procedure 9 days ago. I have been researching all the different options to get a smaller tummy, and for the price this was the most doable for me. The initial treatment (I had one on my lower abdomen) was uncomfortable for the first few minutes. Three days after my... READ MORE

I have been working out for years and even at my smallest never been able to get rid of my belly, even when I lost weight everywhere else. I went into Aestheticare of Leawood on 5/16 and was very happy with the level of care. I had an hour with the large applicator on my lower belly and one of... READ MORE

So I'm going to update this every day with progress notes. The procedure itself is no big deal, I had 2 large areas done, 60 Minutes each, so my butt was hurting more than anything else. They gave not more but a sheet of paper about after-care, things to expect. Of course, there is no mention of... READ MORE

Just left my consultation at Ideal Image and I feel excited. I'm about 6 weeks away from my procedure. In the consultation, Emily went over everything in full detail and explained how things work. She suggested that I get upper and lower abs along with flanks (bra line fat). I want to break up... READ MORE

I have a fairly athletic body and do all the right things--eat a healthy, low-calorie diet, exercise five days a week, etc. But ever since high school, I've had saddle bags, and they never responded to diet or exercise. It seemed like I would lose weight everywhere BUT my thighs, which then made... READ MORE

Sooooo, I had coolsculpting done two days ago. and I'm going to try to keep an ongoing update here for everybody to check out. The area's I had treated were the chin, back of the arms, lower abdomen and inner thighs. I'll update with pictures and progress soon. I am still sore and have some... READ MORE

My motivation is the same as everyone's I m assuming. To regain a bit of my waistline. I don't know that I have 214 characters worth of a review. I have had this done once before on my flanks. The difference is subtle. I understand now that for stubborn more than and inch fat will require more... READ MORE

Got 8 Applications around the midsection, two at a time. Total of 4 hours in a row. All the explenation on the sucktion and cooling down are as described by most people. The massage is horrifying and the afterpain is terrible. Like a million bee stings and tummy feels so numb and you can't touch... READ MORE

I'm 23 years old. I'm active and work out minimum 3x a week. I've always had issuses with my stomach. I've tried changing eating habits from clean to cleaner. I've used different metabolic enhancers. Seriously everything. When I realized that if it was this hard to loose my midsection in my 20s... READ MORE

I exercise regularly and no matter how much I've tried, I could not get rid of my belly fat (it would get smaller but I would always have a muffin top and love handles). I had a tummy tuck in 2003 after my last child. I believe tummy tuck gives help with my permanent muffin top (fat pulled to... READ MORE

I'm 47 an hope this helps u gals an guys looking to have flanks done. It seems at my age over nite I wAs blessed with a muffin top lol. I had not gained any wt in 5 years but it shifts. I went in to have flanks done only 2-29-16. I jus had my 5 week pix taken at office. I was shocked. Love it so... READ MORE

I have two kids 5 and 8 and with the two c sections my abs (upper and lower) have made me cry. I've gained and lost weight and I'm currently at 130 (very happy with the number.) I've always had this weird fat pad on my stomach even before my kids that just won't go away. Now I also have a fold... READ MORE

I work out and watch my diet but just can't get rid of stubborn fat. After months of research and even consulting with a plastic surgeon, I've decided on coolsculpting. Upper abdomen done today. So far no real discomfort. Stomach is distended but that was expected after reading 100s of... READ MORE

I got coolsculping done on my stomach and love handels. I was in the office for 4 hrs and had no issues with the abdomen procedure. When it came to doing my hips the machine was sitting parcially on my hip bone and rib bone. This made it uncomfortable! It was only an hour each side so I... READ MORE

I had it done on my flanks yesterday. I read a lot of reviews so I kinda know what to expect but it still feels weird though. I didn't feel any pain, though the second time on each side, I felt the suction is harder than the first ones. She used cool curve, twice each side that took an hour each... READ MORE

Amazing procedure! I had my love handles treated at McLean Medical in Yonkers NY. I didn't have very much fat but had a little bit of love handles. The actual treatment was a little uncomfortable. I felt the machine was heavy and awkward on my body. The actual treatment didn't hurt. The... READ MORE
