Has anyone had this procedure and would be willing to share their experience? I am interested in finding a good clinic and get an idea of cost before I schedule a consultation. Feel free to respond via DM. Thanks in advance!!

I have not had the coolsculping procedure, but had considered it. I think it's really important to have this procedure under the direction of a dermatology office. I wouldn't have it done elsewhere. In viewing a before and after photos at the office, I saw significant bruising of the areas. The results didn't seem to be that noticable. The procedure is supposed to slowly disolve fat cells over the course of several months, so the results could take months to see. They could have made improvements from several years ago, so it's worth another look see. It was around 1500.00 per area when I looked.

Here's one reporter's experience from Shape magazine. CoolSculpting for Belly Fat | Shape Magazine

It was very popular for awhile in Scottsdale (which has the second highest demand for plastic surgery in the country. Los Angeles is #1). No one I knew who had it felt it was worth the expensive price tag. Many people who had liposuction were much more satisfied customers.

Thanks to all about your thoughts. I am still exploring the idea of getting this done so please keep sharing! After doing some more research, it would have been better for me to write Coolsculpting in the title since is it one word not two.

I had a friend do it without a lot of improvement to justify the cost.

I've had two friends do it, one at a plastic surgeon's office and the other at one of those med-spa places. Both are fit women who just wanted to get rid of some trouble spots, and both were told that they were perfect candidates for the procedure. Neither of them had any noticeable success, even after several treatments.
