Embrace Your Beauty
I have struggled with losing my love handles since childhood and also with that last few inches of belly fat. This didn't get any easier with age or increasing family and job commitments! I had the solution in my practice for my patients in VASER liposuction, but I just couldn't figure out how to do it on myself!
CoolSculpting is a technology that has been around for a few years and I have observed many colleagues using it across the country. I have always had a healthy dose of skepticism when it comes to non-invasive fat reduction, and many of them do not permanently remove fat cells; they reduce the fat within the cells at best or nothing at all.
So, I took the leap and had the reps do CoolSculpting on my love handles. I had no pain during the procedure, which lasted around 30 minutes per side. The massaging afterwards to warm the area was a little uncomfortable, but tolerable, especially when you understand that this will increase the number of fat cells destroyed permanently. Afterwards, I went to the gym daily without any pain. The area was a little sensitive to touch, but I didn't curtail my daily work or exercise routine.
My second treatment one month later included what we call dual sculpting. I did the abdominal fat and the love handles. No problems again with pain during the procedure, but the massage was a little uncomfortable. The tenderness to touch and some numbness lasted about 10 days this time, but again didn't stop me from my normal exercise routine.
It's now been two weeks and my pictures are unbelievable! The abdomen is significantly reduced and so are the love handles. I actually am 2 pounds heavier now and still can see the change! The changes will continue for the next few months and the skin will tighten. I cannot wait to see the final results and am really excited to share CoolSculpting with all of you.
