Coolsculpting Tummy...ouch - Newport Beach, CA

At 47, I am not really overweight, I am 5'8" and weigh 133. (I could benefit from losing about 8 pounds I think). But I've gotten soft and pudgy around the abdomen, love handles and some back fat. I decided to try coolsculpting in Newport Beach, Ca with a plan to do the abdomen (large applicator $600) and each love handle ($400 each) all in one day. I have a very high tolerance for pain. ...

Crescent Lift and Silicone Implants Boosted Post Baby Boobs (With Photos of Stitches)

Hi Rhondadancer, So how many treatments total are you doing and to what areas? I believe it is a bit more expensive overall. I wish they made the vanquish device larger...seriously I'd have it from under my breastline to my lower... READ COMMENT

Since it has been a month or so for you, you probably already feel much better. I know I do. I wore a compression garment (like spanx) for about a week or so. I had pain from the inside out, itching, numbness, but 4 weeks later it is... READ COMMENT

I am going to do vanquish I think. I spoke to them about transferring the rest of my payment to vanquish instead, since I prepaid for the 2 love handles. But they said to wait for 2 months for all results from coolsculpting first. READ COMMENT
