Anyone tried this? The before and after shots of coolsculpting/body contouring look amazing. I don’t deal well with anathesia and surgery and I’m wondering if this could be a good option?

I was thinking of just trying it on my arms to see if it helped. I suspect my stomach needs a Tummy Tuck.

I have not tried it, but there is one near me and I am interested as well for my hips. Have gained 4 kilo back and am not happy!!!

It does sound pretty good. It can remove fat cells but it take like 4 months to work and you need to be dieting and exercising to really see the benefits. I want to get a quote for my arms.

Are you getting as healthy as the Sculptor's bank account? Things that sound too good or too easy,to be true usually are.

Lol!!! So true! When your loose arm wings could flap you over an ocean, a fraction of an inch won’t help much!

I had a consult today. They took one look at my belly and said I need plastics! They said it might help my arms a little. They have different machines that do different things but the results wouldn’t be dramatic. Sigh!!!

They asked me if I was interested in any of their cellulite reducing technologies. I feel like no one is gonna notice the cellulite with my belly hanging between my knees!!

I’m in australia so I don’t know how helpful the pricing is. I didn’t really get a chance to discuss it anyway because I’m such a poor candidate.

So it’s either plastics or learning to live with my skin!

      Getting a little nervous about post surgery life adaptation. I really want to succeed, but habits are so hard to break.

      Good news and Meh news...
      Meh: so I think I experienced/am experiencing my first stall-ish since surgery and now I get how frustrating it can be!  So annoying to wake up every morning to watch the scale report a gain or loss of the same 1.5 pounds for over 2 weeks.  *sigh*.  Some say put the scale away, but I log my weight every morning to get a daily moving average of my weight.  So long as this moving average is not heading upwards (which it isn’t and hasn’t since post-op) then I am good with my curent “minimalist” weekly weight loss rate, however small I think it is 🙄.
      However.
      The Good news:
      To allow for some self back patting, and to remind myself of the bigger picture, I set a bunch of interim goals/milestones... a few of which are 10lbs increment weight loss goals:
      So this morning, after hovering within 1.5 pounds of an interim goal for over 2 weeks, I weighed in at 164.8, and officially lost 70 lbs!  In 4 months.  That is 30% of my starting body weight.  Or the equivalent of my 10 year old neice. How crazy is that.
      Next Goal: weigh in at 162lbs to be merely overweight (and not obese!)

      I am in the Pre-Op stage.  I have 4 more nutrition classes to go to.  I've had my endoscopy with favorable results although I was told I had an abnormal z-line.  Everything looks good so far.  Had my team appointment with the psychologist and have my pulmonologist  this week.  I chose the sleeve
