I Have a Waist Again! - New York, NY

As I've gotten older, I got thick around the middle. It made me sad. Even when I lost weight, I still had this fat on my tummy and lower back that sort of filled in my waist. I hated not being able to wear the clothes I like, to always have to choose clothing that would hide this area.

I came across Coolsculpting first, and was ready to do it, but the person I was going to see canceled on me at the last minute, so I did some more research and decided to try Vanquish instead. I'm so glad I did. I'm having my 10th treatment this week. That will make 5 on my back fat and 5 on my lower tummy.

I swear, fat has melted away! I was lying in bed last night pinching my stomach. Where I used to pinch an inch and a half of fat I now pinch a half inch at most. Last Saturday, my boyfriend, who I hadn't seen in a few weeks, was hugging me and then I felt him run his hands up and down the sides of my new waist, as if thinking "Hm... this wasn't there before!" (He doesn't know about the treatments because it's none of his business!)

I'm wearing pants I couldn't button before, and I'm down two sizes. I'm looking for tops that will show off my waist. I walk around feeling my waist in disbelief. This is all completely true and no one is paying me to say this. When I get my latest "after" pictures, I'll post my before and afters.

I want to add that at first I had my doubts. I'd look at other people's before and after pictures and not see much of any difference. But it's weird-- your circumference can get smaller yet be hard to detect in a photo. But I think when I post my photos you will see the difference. Hazel says I've had really good results. I agree. This was money well spent.

If anyone has questions, please comment and I will answer as best I can.

Embarrassing... but great for me!

I'm 63 and carred 3 babies so cut me some slack. What I want you to notice is the change! I have gone down at least 2 full inches around my waist. I'm wearing size 6 in Banana Republic tight pants. I can FEEL the difference when I pinch what used to be the fat around my middle. My BMI is down from 30 to 26.9. This treatment has really worked for me and I'm so happy to be wearing the clothes I like.

I've had my treatments at Yael Halaas, MD, in midtown Manhattan where the technician who does my treatments is Hazel. Hazel is a registered nurse and very competent and professional, and also friendly. The treatments take 45 minutes and I've enjoyed spending time with her. The office is nice and clean and modern, and the women who work there are very friendly and accommodating.
