Operation Fat Freeze #6 – Four Weeks Post Treatment

Today it’s been almost one month since Dr. Mahoney performed the Zeltiq CoolSculpting treatment on my lower abdominal region.  I’ve regained full feeling in my lower abdomen and the mild sensation of pins and needles is gone.  I’ve not taken any more pictures or measurements since July 1st, but my husband says he can see some subtle changes.  When I went for my treatment, he yelled out “Good luck sweetie! Come back smaller.”  I reminded him that this was not like Honey I Shrunk the Kids, but a process that takes time because it uses the body’s natural processes to clear the fat cells.  There are still no problems with my diabetes in response to the treatment, for which I’m thankful.  So many times I have to choose my health over aesthetics, so Zeltiq is a great option for diabetes patients.  Since July 1st I’ve kept my normal exercise regimen and my diet is the same, so there’s been no need to amp up the workouts or eat crazy cleanse-type foods.  I’ll keep you posted on my progress.  Thanks again, Dr. Mahoney and West Houston Dermatology!
