Coolsculpting, My Review and Does (did) it work?

Back in November, as a mom blogger test subject, I had a procedure called “CoolSculpting” done. I am one of the ideal candidates for the process. Someone that isn’t really overweight, has the right amount of body fat percentage, and cannot seem to lose this baby fat around my midsection post C section.

About CoolSculpting

Procedures that use laser, sonic waves and even surgery to remove fat can actually destroy other tissue in the process by burning, shattering or extracting non-fat cells. This requires downtime for your body to heal. Totally uncool. Fortunately, CoolSculpting doesn’t burn, shatter or extract any cells. Developed by Harvard scientists, our unique, FDA-cleared, patented procedure uses a targeted cooling process that kills the fat cells underneath the skin, literally freezing them to the point of elimination. Only fat cells are frozen. Your healthy skin cells remain, well, healthy. No knives. No suction hoses. No needles. No scars. Once crystallized, the fat cells die and are naturally eliminated from your body. In a few months, boom: say hello to a new you.

To kick start your memory, you can kick here for my CoolSculpting Consultation  and here for my Coolsculpting Procedure. 

Here is also a video of the actual process if you are wondering (and more on that above link).

Now comes the BIG question.

Did Coolsculpting WORK?

Am I slimmer without going under the knife, thinner in certain areas, did I lose body fat and would it be worth the cost? I will let you decide.

And today, just over 4 months later after 1 treatment of CoolSculpting:


(That is my C section scar below that pocket of fat shelf if you are wondering)

Here is a side by side


My thoughts? I don’t see any huge difference in the treatment areas..or really much difference at all. When looking at a picture my husband said that he can see some slight softening of my body and some lifting of the C section area.  For your notes, I have not lost any weight or inches.

I can’t tell you if it just didn’t “work” for me or if I am the type of body that needs more than one treatment or if someone else would have a stronger result. All human bodies are very different. While I would attempt the procedure again to see if my results were better, I don’t believe it made any real difference in my shape or how I fit my clothing (which was what I was more hopeful for).

Do you think CoolSculpting made any difference that you can see?

Would you get it done or if you did, have you seen different results?


Update: I am testing out SLIQUE right now!



Hi, y'all! If you got this far, awesome . I am assuming you want to know more about me. I am a *cough* 36 year old mom of 2 great kids, 6 rescue animals and proud wife of my high school sweetheart. This blog is my outlet and allows me to pretend I am a kid at heart. I get to play with glitter and glue, eat lots of sweets (its for the blog, I swear!) and connect with readers and friends. As a blogger I love to share with you- so the rundown is that I am currently reading this, using these for calmer bedtimes, giving away this, and suggesting here if you ever wanted to be a blogger yourself.

  1. I am just past the three week mark and had six areas treated. I took it upon myself to exercise, tailor my diet to metabolize fat and used various proven ways to circulate my lymphatic system.

    I am happy so far, my lifestyle change led to a 14lb loss and the exercise helped better the appearance of my “frame” and my trouble spots are smoothing/blending at the same time.

    What it does and what you expect will vary. Talk to a nutritionist, a personal trainer and research things you can do to support this procedure.

    After the procedure, you see a lump of frozen fat that is somewhere between the size of a stick of butter or link of sausage. That’s about what you loose. I’ll loose about 8 sticks of butter – combine that with exercise and muscle gain? It is a significant aid.

    Beware – whatever weight a stick of butter weighs can be gained in a couple days of bad eating. I have found that fatty foods (even healthy fats) and more than two drinks a night will hinder any progress from the procedure, exercise or lifestyle change……

  2. I had cool sculpting done to my love handles a year ago. I am already pretty fit, but after two babies I had the usual weight most women have in their sides. I had one treatment on each side and my results are amazing!!! I do not work at a doctors office or anywhere that promotes cool sculpting. My sides are noticeably smaller and the fat I had on my sides is almost nonexistent!! I’d do it again in a second and am hoping to get my belly done this spring. It is not for people looking for weight loss, go to the gym for that. This is for people in good shape who need to spot treat certain areas. I recommend it 110%

    I spent only $2000. The only results I see is because I went on a diet and lost 14 lbs. I looked good, and my belly flattened out. I gained 4 lbs back and can see the bulge coming back. Cool Sculpting is a waste of money.
