I live in the best city in the world (San Francisco!) where fashion experimentation is highly encouraged and supported. I started this blog as a creative outlet away from my hectic life as a graduate student. The name "Wannabe Fashion Blogger" came to life when I would use it to describe the Instagram pictures I snapped of myself in my latest fashion finds.
THE POST THAT EVERYONE HAS BEEN WAITING FOR! Well, maybe not everyone, but quite a few people have reached out asking when I would sharing my Coolsculpting results with all of you. Well, the wait is over my friends. I present to you, my Coolsculpting results! I know most of you will probably just scan past my words to get to the before and after photos, I mean, that’s really what everyone wants, but I also wanted to share with you how I have personally felt post-treatment now that my results are showing. If you read my first blog post on my introduction to my Coolsculpting experience with the Tri-Valley Plastic Surgery team (they are awesome!), then you know that results can take 3-5 months to fully show. I wanted to wait until the 5 month mark to share my results with you so that we could all see the optimum differences. Coolsculpting is not a weight loss treatment. In fact, my Coolsculpting professionals would recommend this treatment to those that have an active lifestyle and healthy diet because Coolsculpting is really supposed to work as a help to “problem areas.” For me, my problem area has always been my lower abdomen. No matter how often I work out (you guys know me, I work out frequently and HARD), my lower tummy area never seemed to tone in the way that I wanted it to. I was told Coolsculpting could help not only flatten this area but make it tighter overall. I knew that I would still have a tummy as Coolsculpting won’t remove a problem area, but just work toward freezing the fat in that one particular area so that it can flatten and you won’t continue to gain weight in that one area. I was excited to see what Coolsculpting could do for a problem area that I struggle with and here were are. After five months since my second Coolsculpting treatment, I can honestly say that I see an improvement post treatment. Not only do I feel like my lower tummy is flatter in the after photos, but my jeans and pants fit better in that area as well! That was one of the things I noticed first. I found that my pants were less tight in the lower tummy area and that jeans seemed to fit better overall. I was thrilled with this as this has always been an issue for me, especially when sitting down in tight jeans. Coolscultping results are meant to be subtle and that’s exactly how I would describe my results. Even though it’s a subtle change, I really notice and feel it because I have been living in my body for 33 years. Someone on the street may not notice the differences but I really do. Plus, this Coolsculpting journey took place during my struggles coming off of birth control. I had gained weight during that time but honestly, Coolsculpting helped me regain my confidence as my body began to even out again. Now the question that I get quite often, “Is Coolsculpting worth it?” For me, I felt like these results were helpful for me but others might feel like the treatment might not reveal as “drastic” results/changes as they would want. Remember, Coolsculpting is all about the subtle results and will not drastically change your body. However, if you maintain a healthy lifestyle and want to address some problem areas that seem to be out of your control, I would recommend talking to a professional that could assess your body to see if it’s a candidate for Coolsculpting.
