My Experience with CoolSculpting at Amavi Medspa Suffolk County, NY
Why I Chose CoolSculpting – Heather W
I love my body, and the fact that I carried 3 babies. I’ve worked really hard (and succeeded in) accepting myself as I am. However, the weight gain from “baby belly” is something I’ve been self-conscious about since the pregnancies. I have always watched what I eat and am very active, but this weight never went away.
I was aware of surgery and liposuction as options for “baby belly”, but I knew these were things I’d never seriously entertain. Surgery, with its pain, downtime, risk and expense were definitely not for me. I saw liposuction on TV, and it seemed so violent. I had no interest in that, either
A few years ago, I heard about CoolSculpting, and it sounded intriguing. However, I wasn’t sure whether it was something that really worked, or was just a fad. I put all this on back burner, since I was busy with work and raising my three children.
About a two years ago, my husband I started to separate, then divorce. In the early phases of the separation, I had a lot of thoughts (and fears) about revealing my body to a new partner. But this really wasn’t the trigger to start the CoolSculpting.
It wasn’t until I gradually healed from the divorce that I really started to think about my body in a different way. During the separation, I realized I was reclaiming myself from the inside-out. The exterior changes I wanted to make became more and more about me – not about a relationship. This was so liberating!!
This is when I really started my diet and exercise changes – sometimes divorce can leave you with some time for healthier habits!
I went back to my CoolSculpting research and liked what I saw. I had been worried that CoolSculpting sounded too good to be true. But by this time, it had been around longer, and the online pictures seemed to show results that lasted a long time. I also liked that it was FDA approved and had no downtime.
I know I still have to take care of myself. Right now, I’m half way to my diet and exercise goal of a 16lb weight loss – it all goes together. My expectations for CoolSculpting at Amavi Medspa in Suffolk County NY aren’t huge – I just want to keep myself in check, and I don’t expect to magically transform anything. Since this is for me and no one else, I feel confident I’ll be happy with the results.
