2/28/2018 - For a while now, I've been reluctant to have my photo taken because I didn't like how my double-chin looked in pictures. When my family went to Disney for vacation in December, my husband planned to buy their photo package and asked me to please not hide in the pictures. Ugh!
For the new year, I decided to get a new look without getting plastic surgery. Instead, I had the area under my chin 'cool sculpted'. I went to Cool Body Contouring in Savannah on January 23rd. Dr. Everhard gave me a wonderful consultation so that I understood the process and how and why it works.
Because the body's inflammatory process helps the Cool Body treatment, I had been told not to take any anti-inflammatory medicine for a day or two before the procedure. I followed directions, almost, forgetting that turmeric is an anti-inflammatory and I had taken it that morning. No problem. I went back the next day and got my treatment!
During the process, Dr. Everhard and his nurse commented on how much fat was "sucked-in" by the cooling device. It turns out that that was a good thing, because that fat is now gone!
The process didn't take very long. They used the device for 2 - 45 minute segments, one on each side. The device felt a little awkward at first because it was so close to my throat, but didn't affect my breathing and didn't really hurt. By then end, I was falling asleep! :-) Afterwards, I was able to go back to work.
The swelling and soreness over the next few days were more than I expected, but I think it's because of how much area of fat was treated. It didn't keep me from doing anything.
I will tell you that it was worth it! I am so happy with how I look now that I don't have a double-chin!!! And it's only been 5 weeks. The full process takes up to 4 months, but honestly, I'm not sure there's much more fat under my chin that can disappear because the Cool Body treatment has worked so well for me. I would definitely do it again on a different part of my body! Cool Body Contouring can treat the belly, inside and outside of thighs, under arms and bra fat.
I've posted a series of photos below, including a before-and-after from last week. By the way, I have not changed my diet or exercise. This result is strictly from Cool Body Contouring's cool sculpting treatment.
