5 Impressive CoolSculpting Results to Learn From - With Before and After Photos
Reviewing before-and-after photos is a good starting point to help narrow down if CoolSculpting is what you need. It also makes sense if you review stories and photographs of patients that have the same (or as close as possible) age, gender, ethnicity, and body measurements.
We hope that these stories from actual patients at our practice in San Francisco will help make CoolSculpting less confusing and help inspire the results you've envisioned for yourself!
Case Study #1: Mr. E's Lower Abdomen CoolSculpting
I have never been able to lose my lower belly, until now!
- Patient Age: 53
- Gender: Male
- Ethnicity: Hispanic
- Height: 5'8"
- Weight: 155 lbs
Mr. E had heard from a friend during a night out about a "magic" procedure that would flatten your belly without any surgery. This sounded too good to be true but Mr. E had been struggling to lose his belly pooch for years and was willing to look into CoolSculpting more. The very next day, he researched for the best plastic surgeon in the city and scheduled a consultation with us at 77 Plastic Surgery.
After careful assessment of his existing body frame and evaluating his goals, a customized treatment plan was made specifically to fit his needs. After just one treatment of his lower abdomen, Mr. E saw a significant difference in how much fat didn't come out over the top of his jeans. He was so thrilled with his results, he opted to do treatments in different areas for a total body transformation.
Case Study # 2: Miss S's Upper Abdomen CoolSculpting
I lost 30 pounds prior to my procedure but couldn't lose any more weight. I decided to get CoolSculpting to help look even slimmer. I'm very happy with my decision. I may not look perfect, but I look and feel great!
- Patient Age: 34
- Gender: Female
- Ethnicity: Caucasian
- Height: 5'4"
- Weight: 125 lbs
Miss S came to us after having lost 30 pounds on her own with diet and exercise. She was happy with her new body and new found confidence, but still had bulges of fat on her upper abdomen that made her feel unattractive in fitted clothing. Miss S consulted with us about CoolSculpting in hopes of smoothing out these bulges.
After careful assessment, a treatment plan for her upper abdomen was recommended. Because Miss S had lost a good deal of weight and possibly also because of genetics, her upper abdomen skin was slightly loose. It was explained to Miss S that CoolSculpting in no way works on skin and will not tighten skin in any area. In fact, if there is enough fat removed, the skin may seem looser in the treated area. Miss S understood the possibilities and chose to move forward with the treatment, which yielded amazing results.
From this case study, it is worth noting that CoolSculpting is not a treatment for obesity, excess body weight, or loose skin after weight loss.
Case Study # 3: Miss L's Love Handles CoolSculpting
I love to enjoy food, but sometimes I indulge a little too much and it can show. CoolSculpting helps me have my cake and eat it too! In moderation, of course!
- Patient Age: 28
- Gender: Female
- Ethnicity: Indian
- Height: 5'6"
- Weight: 160 lbs
Miss L had just moved to San Francisco and was trying to adjust to city life, which included enjoying all the wonderful restaurants and gaining some weight. She decided to get back on track with a healthy lifestyle and started eating right and going to the gym. She heard about CoolSculpting while talking to a friend in the gym locker room and thought the treatment would be the perfect 'jumpstart' to her dream body.
At the consultation, Miss L explained that she wanted to focus on accentuating her waist and getting rid of her 'not so lovely love handles." Her treatment plan was created for her body shape and for the look she wanted to achieve. Miss L was so pleased with the results from the first round, that she decided to undergo another session in the same area.
A few months after her second treatment, we were pleased to find out that Miss L kept up with her healthy lifestyle change and went on to lose 25 pounds. She attributes CoolSculpting to be the starting point of her success!
Case Study # 4: Mrs. T's Inner Thigh CoolSculpting
I've always had nice legs, but my inner thighs bothered me. No matter how big or small I got, they were always a problem. Now I can wear shorts with confidence!
- Patient Age: 50
- Gender: Female
- Ethnicity: Asian
- Height: 5'7"
- Weight: 150 lbs
Mrs. T did everything right - she was active and had a healthy diet but she felt like her legs didn't show off all her hard work. She would not wear shorts, swimsuits and even tight jeans in order to avoid accentuating her inner thigh bulge. Mrs. T was completely happy with her body as a whole but felt that she could really be the best version of herself if she could address her one insecurity. That is when she decided to reach out to us and explore the option of CoolSculpting.
Her treatment plan consisted of one or two treatments of her inner thighs. After she saw the results of her first treatment, Mrs. T was so thrilled she immediately bought new pairs of shorts for her upcoming cruise vacation.
Case Study # 5: Mrs. B's Arm CoolSculpting
The day my 5 year old son said my arms were ginormous, was the day I researched and found CoolSculpting. What a miracle procedure!
- Patient Age: 44
- Gender: Female
- Ethnicity: Caucasian
- Height: 5'5"
- Weight: 140 lbs
Ever since she was young, Mrs. B always felt her arms were bigger and not proportionate with the rest of her body. Wearing tank tops were out of the question, yet normal long sleeve that fit were hard to find. Mrs. B spent her days in loose tops with gigantic, wide open sleeves, not something she felt particularly fashionable in. When CoolSculpting came out with an arm applicator, she jumped right on it.
At the consultation, Mrs. B's arms were carefully assessed to ensure that her concern was not due to muscle or loose skin. It was confirmed that her arm had a good amount of fat tissue that could be treated with the appropriate applicator. In just one treatment, Mrs. B saw the results she had hoped for and has been enjoying the world of tank tops!
How to Get the Same Stellar CoolSculpting Results
To attain stunning and natural results from CoolSculpting, it's important to pin down the specific issues that you want to address. A face-to-face consultation, complemented with research on your end, is an excellent starting point.
Also, you have to understand that the best CoolSculpting results are accomplished when your fat deposits are localized, you are within normal body weight, and have good skin elasticity in your areas of concern. Often, poor skin elasticity will result in unsatisfactory outcomes.
You should also make an effort to stick to a healthy diet and an exercise regimen before and after your procedure. This will boost the aesthetics and longevity of your CoolSculpting results.
