Cool Sculpting? - Brookfield, WI

I just completed by first cool sculpting procedure on my bra fat and upper arms. The procedure wasn't too painful. I'm bruised, so try not to take any blood thinners beforehand. I'm currently regretting my Advil dose last night. I'll post pictures tonight and do updates on my progress. Overall I'm hoping for sleeker arms and a more toned, less fat rolled, back! Wish me luck! I had cool...

36 Years Old, 2 C-sections, Much Needed Tummy Tuck! - Brookfield, WI

After meeting with a few doctors, I've decided to have a TT done with Dr. Bonness. After many years of being unhappy with my body, and my youngest being 14, it's time to do something for me! My surgery date is only 32 days away, I'm excited, kind of afraid, and hopeful for amazing results!! So far, Dr. Bonness seems great. I've met with a few doctors, she seemed the most interested in my...

32 Years Old & 2 C-sections Later - Milwaukee, WI

I am nervous, anxious and excited all at once for my tummy tuck in one week. I have had two C-sections and ACL surgery so I can't imagine the pain being much worse than any of those?? Although Dr. Bonness was more expensive than some of the other quotes I got, I believe her level of experience will provide much better results. In the pre-op visit she went to great lengths to explain exactly...

The Best Cosmetic Treatment I've Ever Experienced! Milwaukee, WI

I'm in my early 50s and still had acne scarring from my teen and young adult years. I also started having patchiness, skin discoloration, small wrinkles, and skin that was starting to sag. I had GREAT results from a series of five ematrix treatments at an excellent facility with a more medical rather than spa emphasis. After the treatments, I could go out without makeup FOR THE FIRST TIME...
