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

Amazing Shares

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.

November 2012



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?

  1. I also tried to freeze sculpturing did two sessions laid out $2400 and got nothing oh they said they could see a little difference but I had been on a major weight loss and workout routine for the 12 weeks according to my doctor I did more than that stuff even thought of doing.Total ripoff.

  2. Thank You so much for your reviews and saving me the money. I am sorry that they lied to you though! I hope you can get your money back.

  3. I spent a lot on coolscuplting and some areas 3 treatmemts. It’s joke and waste of money and time.

    • I had my arms done 6 weeks ago. I had two treatments. After the first treatment and one week I didn’t yet see results but lost an inch. Now 6 weeks in my boyfriend sees it and says it feels smaller. My arms fit much easier in some tops now. I was told her massaging it right away which HURTS is key. I’m very happy

  4. Wake up people:
    Oprah said, “There is NO easy way for weight loss, no magic pill, no machine. If there was, I would have it”.

  5. Did not work for me either. How sad that people have to lie in order to make money . What a waste of time and money!

  6. When I went to all the free seminars the said you would loose 20% each treatment. I did it an nothing. I’m not happy and wanting my money back or give me something that works. Very unhappy, they lied to all of us.
    they never said that it is a possibility the it would not work, If that was said I would have never ever had it done.

  7. The only thing I lost was money. The only thing that got flatter was my wallet. Big bucks for NO results. Don’t waste your time or well earned money.

  8. I had it done 19 months ago, and I am sadly very disappointed. After waiting the customary 3 months for ”visible results”…I am STILL waiting 16 months later. When I returned for my follow-up visit, and after being measured post procedure, I honestly did not think there was much of a difference, if any. I have always had minor love handles and a small pot belly..even before three pregnancies… despite my not being overweight. I was truly hoping to lose the fat with this procedure, but that did not happen. I know that perhaps more treatments may be necessary, but I would NOT shell out another dime, until and unless, I am guaranteed in writing that if they did not work..again.. they would be redone at the expense of the place doing them. I, like others, are tired of paying $$thousands$$ and not getting results!!

    • It’s a scam, I will get my $7000.00 back. I had to take out a loan for this. I was told oh yes it will work. NOTHING
      I’ve had it done 3 times. The 3rd time was at the their cost. The 2nd & 3rd time it hurt so bad during the procedures that I thought I would scream. I started in Oct 2013, no change nothing. My husband is so ticked when he found out I took out a loan for nothing. $7000.00 is a lot, we are far from rich. We both work hard . They took advantage of a lot of people. I’m think I’m going to contact a lawyer. They weighed me each time. total 2 lbs lost. WOW. I walk 3 times a week, I’m very busy up & down at work etc…
      I don’t like being lied to. I had my abs & side areas done 3 times. NOTHING.

  10. I too had cool sculpting done about a yr ago. NO results.
    Just blew 3000! I had 1 large ab with 2 side flanks.
    I have the 2 csection hang over.
    It did hurt. I was so bruised I looked like I was in a car accident.
    To this day my crazy symptom is my belly is so hard that I have
    Trouble bending….as if I was prego. Wish there was more info out there on what a scam this is.

    • I also was ripped off at a laser clinic in melbourne-I feel like I lost all my ab muscles and now my abdomen is alway distended and bloated feeling, as if there is no muscle tone left. My love handles are still there too. It is a big waste of money! Thousands of dollars in there pocket and no satisfaction at all.

        I agree. I spent 3,900 with no results. Even with counting carbs,fat,calories etc. There was no result with cool sculpting. Only a big loss of money.

      • I agree with you. I spent $7000.00 Anderson, Indiana
