CoolScultpting 56 year old Male Lower Abdomen

So I'm going to update this every day with...

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 people have tremendous pain people have been reporting on this site 4 days after the procedure. (https://www.realself.com/forum/discuss-the-pain).
So as a precaution I got my doctor to prescribe Gabapentin 300mg and Lidocaine Patches (love my GP).
I also ordered Bromelain for bruising and Young Living Pan Away Essential Oil that apparently some folks got relief from.
On a side-note, I had 3 failed back surgeries and was on very high doses of Opiates for a very long time and I finally decided last year enough and stopped cold turkey. It was as pleasant as one can imagine -NOT, but I made it and there is no way I ever go back in Opiates unless absolutely necessary. The reason I bring this up is I was a nice 190 pounds, going to the gym and was pretty buff before the work accident in 2008. Now I have ballooned to over 255 pounds and I'm disgusted to even look in the mirror

Update day 2 CoolsSulpting

No bruising, maybe a little tender but not even worth mentioning at this point. I did sleep all night with Ice packs, which is nothing new I sleep with then every night on by lower back where I had the fusion surgery.

Update day 3 CoolsSulpting

So far so good. no pain, no swelling (maybe due to the Ice Packs), it's like nothing happened. I'm not celebrating quite yet since most people started reporting nerve pain on the 4th day. So I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed.

Update day 4 CoolsSulpting

Not much to report, I got a couple of tiny bruises on the very bottom of the treatment, unfortunately,the Pineapple extract only arrived yesterday so I'm taking it now. Still sleeping every night with Ice Packs on it and massage it twice a day. One thing I have noticed while the skin/fat was quite movable before the treatment it feels almost liquefied now. It this a good thing, I don't know, time will tell. Until tomorrow.

Update day 5 CoolsSulpting Lower Abdomen

I sound like a broken record, no pain just a little tenderness. I did forget to mention this is the very lower abdomen which according to the Technician is the least painful. The mid-section is second and the worst is the chest (for men only obviously). The ugly scar you see has nothing to do with the procedure, that was part of my back surgeries (two from the back one from the front). I still believe it's the all-night ice-packs that really do the trick, although I don't ice it during the day still no pain. Maybe tomorrow, I'm known to react strangely. Good luck to you all.

Update day 6 CoolsSulpting

Nothing to report...no pain!

Update day 6 CoolsSulpting

pdate day 12 CoolSulpting Lower Abdomen

no news, not even a picture

Update day 13 CoolSulpting Lower Abdomen

I'm not sure that the skin folds are ever going to go away, but it is supposed to take a long time. At least no pain, still sleep with ice on it. Lost about 15 pounds but I'm also drinking more and follow the 4-hour? body diet (although not as strict as I should).

The pounds are coming off very quickly - alas not quick enough to see real results. I started at 255 pounds and this morning I was at 239.

Update day 18 CoolSulpting Lower Abdomen

No exciting new, still no pain even when massaging it. Numbness seems to have dissipated?.

Worry about pain is way past, however, those skin folds are not going to go away without further intervention.

Update day 57 CoolSulpting Lower Abdomen 56 year old Male

It's getting there, that scar either stays or I will have to have it removed, is really worth it, I'm not 20 anymore.

Just the scar and the surrounding tissue.

Update day 61 CoolSulpting Lower Abdomen 56 year old Male

Update day 67 CoolSulpting Lower Abdomen 56 year old Male

I think it's definitely going better and even the skin flaps slowly are going away. It's not the body of a 20/30 year old but that is unrealistic to begin with.

Update day 70 CoolSulpting Lower Abdomen 56 year old Male

Now some Liposculpting and it will be perfect LOL... not going to do that.
