Did NOT work, created a hard bulging pouch below my belly button !!

I did this about a year an a half ago. It did not work and now I have a bulging pouch below my belly button which makes pants awkward to wear without having your shirt hanging out to hide the BULGE !! Tried to get this handled with the company, the Doctor who did the process but all are giving me the run around, also with their insurance company. The Doctor told me their was a problem with it after the process. It works with some people and others it leaves you " Disfigured." !!!! Can anyone help?????????????????? R

Bad quality

Look out...

After having Coolsculpting treatments, my upper thighs have large breast like masses on them. My abdomen has an ugly look too since having Coolscupting treatments. Now, 6 months after the treatments, a plastic surgeon has said either liposuction or reconstructive surgery will be the only way to get back to my original appearance! He will know which recommendation to make after some testing is done. What a waste of $4000.00 for the Coolsculpting treatments, and now I will have a new bigger expense to have corrections made to both areas. I'm not sure how I will afford the needed corrective procedures.

Cool Sculpting is a scam

What more can I say....I went in for a consultation that turned out to be a high pressure sales pitch along with promises that this procedure is so amazing and designed specifically for people like myself (a few extra pounds). I was already dieting and exercising on my own before having this procedure done and I was told to stop that it would mess up the process. I was promised results within a few weeks, but every time I came back for measurements I was continuing to gain weight. At this point the whole thing fell apart it got to the point where they dreaded me coming back but I did comeback for every follow up. So finally after 120 days of which ever time during this period when they would see that I was gaining not loosing they would extend the result period....oh it takes 6 weeks.....oh it takes 60 days.....oh it takes 90 days....and then finally.....i gave up realizing that I had just wasted my time and money and also gained even more weight due to the instructions to stop exercising.....If you have money to waste then go ahead and get this procedure.....Oh and this procedure is non-refundable even when they themselves document that cool sculpting had absolutely no effect on you what so ever.....Stay away from the wall center in shreveport

I fell for a supposedly half off price on cool sculpting at Sun Valley Skin Care in Boise, Idaho. They did 16 so called treatments on my stomach and back.

At the 6 month mark I had not lost a pount or an inch. Then I got the flue and had a bad tooth and lost weight on my own. I went back for a 6 month checkback though it was really 8 months and told them it had not worked. I got nothing, not even a sorry, no offer for products for skin, nothing.

Cost of this total failure-$8000.

Do not be seduced. Cool-sculpting does not work.

I had a cool sculpting procedure done on my stomach, both arms and back of my bra area....in Marina del Rey, CA.. I wasn't pleased with the results and went back for another visit...

The problem here is you sign your life away prior to a procedure so that the doctor is protected. You guys, it has been two years now...and I have lost all feelings and sensation of both my hands.. It has been a nightmare... It seriously damaged my nerves in both arms...

and I'm devastated.. I had surgery 6 months ago at Cedars Sinai with Dr. Stuart Kushner which has not given me any relief whatsoever... Anyone who is reading this....

PLEASE DON'T EVER DO THIS...

IT IS ALL ***...It does absolutely nothing and is extremely painful of a procedure... I only wish I could turn back time and not have done this and still have both my hands...

I thought the procedure was amazing. You still need to watch what you eat and exercise.

CoolSculpting is not a magic weight loss fix.

What it is intended to do is "sculpt" areas that aren't responding to exercise, which it did completely for me. Read my unbiased and more importantly, unpaid review on it right here: http://beyouonlybetter.com/?p=7544

I had the cool sculpting done December 2012 & I gain more weight than I have ever had in my entire life!! It was a waste of time & money!

The Doctor compared my before & after pictures & he admitted that my back & sides was hard & bigger than what it was before the cool sculpting procedure!! I started having problems with my body every since!!

I had cool sculpting done in Park CIty, UT. No results - have not gained weight but the area they worked on actually looks larger than before!

Was of time, lots of pain. Don't do ti!

I know thus blot is somewhat old but I'm going to put my opinion here. Did cool sculpting 2x on love handles and lower abdomen.

I'm close to 4 months out and have zero results. In fact I have gained weight even though I work out and eat fairly reasonable. I'm very upset as I spent close to 4k :( for people thinking about this procedure save your money. I thought I could trust my plastic surgeon as he is a double board certified but this whole procedure was one big lie.

Additionally it was not painless as they stated it would be. My lower abdomen felt like I was being stabbed over and over again for two weeks.

It was so had I couldn't even bear to wear pants. Again TOTAL SCAM

6'7" 230lbs age 48. Had it done in November 2012 and not only is there no positive difference it seems worse.

The area is more condensed and feels firmer. My concern it that the procedure made a change that will now be bad for me down the road. And I don't mean just visually.

If the process is legit why would it fail for some and does the reason for that failure mean longer term issues? The company that did it has refunded my $.

I have never heard that anyone is supposed to stop exercising after coolsculpting. I have had my love handles done, upper belly, lower belly twice.

Lost inches every time as measured by a measuring tape and how my clothes fit. It is dependent on who is doing the procedure---and that you get a good "suck".
