I see adverts for it constantly, guess they are making money, but I don't know a soul who had it done, I am suspicious, sounds like over- priced mumbo- jumbo to me.. Like the old saying says If it SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE , it usually is!

I was JUST talking to my mom about this last night. Personally, I don't know anyone that has done it, but I've scoured the internet looking for people's before/after pics. Looks like it helps somewhat, but if you have drastic loose skin, I'm not sure how much it'd help. Best thing is a consult at a place that does the procedure. Most places do them free. Lots of celebs use it...Britney Spears, the Kardashians, etc. For pics, I've found a lot on Pinterest, Google searches or on the actual websites of facilities that perform the Cool Sculpting. Here's one Google search I used to find the pics below https://bit.ly/2RDgDVd :

I had a friend who had it done. At best, she said the results were barely noticeable and in no way equal to the high cost. When she questioned the practice they said, "everyone's results are different". Also, you have to remember it is designed to shrink fat, not tighten loose skin.

I am curious if anyone else has tried with a better outcome!

I'm going to research this once I reach my goal weight. There'd be no point in doing it now as I'm just a month post-op sleeve, but I am curious about it down the road.

One of my close friends had it done. She said it was a waste of money. Never saw any results. But that’s not saying it wouldn’t work for someone else.

Our support group had a plastic surgeon that specializes in bariatric patients as guest speaker and he said procedures such as this don't work for bariatric patients and are a waste of money. Our problem when we get to goal is not excess fat but excess skin and these procedures do nothing for that.

Has anyone had one of those mini-lifts the Skin Place advertises on TV, they show you. supposedly 60 year old women that look 40 on a very good day. The doctor they highlight is Dr Fernando Colon, he does look handsome but does he make others look pretty too?

      Thought I'd give an update.  I'm over half way to my goal, which is awesome, and I've lost over 12 inches in my waist!  The weight isn't coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I am also not exercising and still not getting even close to the amount of water I should be drinking, so slow weight loss is not all that surprising.  Sometimes I'm just "over it" and try to eat huge portions like I used to, but, thankfully, I feel the restriction of my smaller stomach and can't go crazy.  In general, I'm quite good, just trying to live my life.
      I now have a motivation to start exercising, though... I booked a plane ticket to Germany for the end of September, so this is a good chance to get strong, get hydrated, and reach my weight goal.

      Wow looking through my own eyes I just don't see 50 lbs done.  I took the side my side picture from 4 months ago to today's and can only see some change.  I hope I can keep loosing.  I just read that the window or the honeymoon stage of weight lost is in the first 4 months after that it will slow down and you have to work even harder to keep it going.  Trying to keep positive even if it is one pound I lost in 2 weeks.

      So I had my surgery on Jan 7th. At this point I haven't eaten anything for 2 weeks am giving myself my injections. I can barely stomach the protein shakes that I am to have twice a day. I have noticed a small weight loss not as much as I thought I would have since I haven't eaten anything. I haven't started working out at the gym yet. I broke in a horrible case of hives from my incisions but have since been cleared up. I didn't really have any nausea from my surgery. I don't even feel like I had surgery. I am sure once I start eating  I will notice. To ask others. I have sleeve surgery so wondering if anyone else out there had this surgery how did you feel after. When did you start eating foods. I am nervous to start eating. I drink my 64oz plus water a day but that's about it that I am taking in other than the occasional sugar free Popsicle.

        In the beginning, I was sure that I would go straight to malnutrition hell if I missed even a dose. Turns out, it takes several weeks to months to get yourself in any substantial trouble. My excellent labwork has proven to me that it's not just okay to skip (out of laziness or accidentally) your supplements, but it probably saves you a couple of bucks here and there. Mellow out is my new mantra. Go the best you can with hydration, protein, and your recommended supplements. Trying to live a stress-free life is infinitely more important than your supplements for any given day. (None of this little blabfest was intended for the lovely and ever-knowledgable GT.)
