Questions about Coolsculpting, the biggest being cost. I have found 20% off on real self. Ball park estimate of the cost?(photo)

I've had one child, which actually isn't the problem, I have bounced back to my normal belly. I've been stuck with a gut my entire life. No exercise or diet has ever helped. I have no stretch marks or sagging skin. I'm 29, in your opinion would this be an ideal route to go? Assuming lipo would cost much more. Is it wise to do it now at this age when I could potentially have children in the future?

CoolSculpting Cost

The price for the CoolSculpting procedure varies depending on the area treated, the size of the applicators used, the number of applicators or sessions needed, and your ultimate goals. CoolSculpting prices also depend on your geographic location.

You will need an in-person consultation and evaluation to determine whether you are a suitable candidate for the treatment and how many applicators/sessions you would need for optimal results. Hope this helps.

Coolsculpting might be a possibility for you but it is difficult to say without an exam.  See an experienced plastic surgeon in your area and get some expert input on all of your options.  Then you can make a plan to improve your abdomen or decide to wait, if that is what fits better.

Zeltiq usually sets the base price, however, prices range from clinic to clinic. You can visit zeltiq website to see which doctor is near you. It is important to have the procedure done with a doctor who is experienced in cool sculpting.

The cost of Coolsculpting depends on how many areas you are having treated. Each area can vary from $600 to $750 dollars. You should speak to your practitioner about how many sessions you will need on each area as well so that you have realistic financial and aesthetic expectations.

Coolsculpting is an excellent form of non-invasive  fat reduction for the right patient. Some applicators take 1 or 2 hours but the new advantage applicators take only 35 minutes and have significantly less risk for delayed onset pain (especially in the abdomen). Results are seen at 2 months and typically 1-3 treatments will be necessary on each area to achieve ideal results. The number of treatments depends on the amount of fat there and the patient's goals.  There is not downtime and the results can be impressive in the right patient.  We also use the Zimmer Z-wave for improved patient comfort and added results. The best candidates are those who are in pretty good shape with areas of stubborn fat that won't go away no matter what.

My best,
