The results are in–Cool Sculpting works! I took this pic the last week in June at Stillwater Plastic Surgery, about 18 weeks from my first treatment. I can definitely tell my belly is flatter and tighter!
HOW THE COOLSCULPTING PROCEDURE FREEZES FAT CELLS
- Many of us have stubborn fat despite diet and exercise.
- CoolSculpting technology uses controlled cooling (Cryolipolysis) to target and kill only these fat cells.
- In the weeks to follow, these fat cells are naturally eliminated from the body.
- CoolSculpting results are long-term, as treated fat cells are gone for good.

I have to admit that I was a little skeptical about the whole process. Really? You just freeze the fat and then sweat and pee it out? Sounds too good to be true. Plus, it seemed like I had to wait so long to see the optimal results. But the pictures do not lie.
I knew I wasn’t going to get rid of the extra skin from my massive weight gains with my pregnancies, and I do not plan on being a bikini model anytime soon. So, please don’t post nasty comments about that I still have stretch marks, and I still have saggy skin. I know that people. (I really don’t want to post these pictures, but I am doing it because I said I would.)
The little pouches of fat above and below my belly button are gone. The results really look best in fitted tees and dresses, but what fun is that to show you? I am hoping Dr. Capizzi will want to give me a tummy tuck now to remove that extra skin. (which would also remove a lot of my stretch marks!) I really think plastic surgeons should do 5-10 pro bono mommy makeovers a year.

Again–I know I fully earned those crazy tiger stripes and that saggy skin and have these two beautiful, brilliant, healthy children because of it. There are many women who would give anything to be able to carry their own child. Please know that I am not body bashing here. This is something that was offered to me, and I jumped at the chance to see what it was all about.
