I am a 49 year woman. I 5'7" 1/2 and have always weight between 128 - 136. I had maintained a flat stomach all of my life until I hit my early 40's. It was driving me nuts to suddenly have this belly appear.
On June 21 I had cool sculpting performed at my Dermatologist office on my belly area. As others have mentioned it is shocking how much it sucks you in to the machine but certainly not painful or anything. I did feel as though I had to whisper and not inhale/exhale to deeply for fear it would pop off. In about 8 minutes I was totally comfortable. I had brought my Ipad and sat and read a book. Truly, I thought it was a piece of cake. When my time was up, I was dreading them taking me off of the suction because I had heard that it hurts when they massage the area.
My belly looked like a giant stick of frozen butter - the nurse said she had never seen one as frozen as mine. She started to massage and yes, it is definitely uncomfortable but not screaming agony or anything. I then got up, got dressed and went shopping and resumed my day. By the end of the day my belly was very tender and very swollen. Again though, completely manageable. For 2 or so weeks my belly was still fatter than my original size and sore. Not only is it tender but ITCHY! I just put it out of my mind and kept telling myself that it is only temporary and it will be worth it. Some people have said how horrible it is, I would not say that at all, simply uncomfortable at times.
I am now a little over 3 weeks since I had it done. I can see that definitely my belly is going down in size and I only have a very slight itching, no pain. I am confident that I am going to have good results. In fact, I have scheduled to have my love handles done too! I wish I had photos to share but unfortunately I didn't think to take before pix. I am going to ask when I go back in (at the 3 month mark) to see if they will email me my before picture that they took.

It has been one month since I had my procedure. I can definitely see a difference. Even my husband said just yesterday that he could tell that my belly was getting flatter. I am hoping that when I go in for a 3mth checkup that they will let me have a copy of my "before" picture, then I can post my before and after. :) I am really excited now that I am seeing some results and only expect that it will get even better in the next month or so.

Just had my love handles done on the 8th of October. Piece of cake! Again, the suction is really strong. Truly felt no pain, I sat and read a book for the whole 2 hours. Afterward the areas were a little painful and bruised but certainly managable. I grocery shopped when I was thru with the procedure. It is now Oct. 12, very little pain, still bruised and not a big deal. Can't wait to see the results in a few weeks.
My lower ab (first procedure) looks GREAT!, my upper ab (second procedure) which was done a few weeks ago is starting to show some difference too.
My opinion so far - Little discomfort and TOTALLY worth it!!!
I am going to submit before and after pics when I am all done.

I am so so happy with this. It has now been 6 months since I started with the cool sculpting. First did my belly, then my upper ab, then my love handles. No down time, minimal discomfort. I would highly recommend this. The staff at Dr. Mann's office was awesome to boot!

Flash forward - 3 years later, Cool Sculpting again

I loved my cool sculpting and the results from 3 years ago. About a year ago I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis and had lost about 15 pounds - I was quite skinny. I took medicine which pushed it into remission but after that I gained my weight back plus another 7-8 pounds. Also, in my early 50's I am peri-menopausal. I have kept the extra pounds on and as a result have my pooch and side flab back. I have since moved from Montana to Illinois and went to someone different for Cool Sculpting. Had it done today on my belly and each side. They have a couple machines so I was able to do it all in one day. Same as before, a piece of cake! minimal soreness right after we got done but now its numb. I know I can expect more soreness tomorrow and at some point the intense itchy-ness will start. It was totally manageable before and I'm sure it will be this time as well. I am hoping for the same great results as last time. My cost for all of this today was $2300. As soon as I have pictures I will post them.
Bozeman Dermatologist

I see this doctor for regular yearly skin checks as my fam has a history of skin cancer, so I've seen her for quite some time.
