I had two areas treated - hips and belly. After 30 days, my hips DO seem to have shrunk, but I see no appreciable difference in the belly. However, I DO note that my rear end is bigger!
There is a reason why CoolSculpting salespeople, techs, and staff say specifically that the procedure does not cause weight loss (which, you would think would be the case if fat cells were being burned off, right?).
Nope, white fat cells in the TREATED areas (in my case only one of the two) do diminish, the fat cells in other areas are still there, and they take on the extra fat that the old area no longer can.
This makes common sense, and if I had thought it through, may have come to the realization by myself, but $3k later, and one (relatively unpleasant) treatment to go, it finally dawned on me.
If you want to shrink a particular area, go for it, but expect some other area to take on that bulge.
Expensive lesson to learn - "sounds too good to be true" - this sure was.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
