Dr. Poulter on CoolSculpting

Well, it happened.  In June 2019, I turned 60 years old. For my birthday, I had pledged to drop weight so I could look better.  I had, in fact, gained several pounds but was still ecstatic about how I fit in my clothes, looked in my swimsuit, and the loss of my love handles and belly fat.  I have done CoolSculpting now for the last year.  I have had five separate treatments and a total of 17 cycles to my stomach, love handles and my neck.  I felt I had a significant response to each of these areas that have been treated, and I cannot tell you how much better I feel about how I look.  I have done every type of diet and exercise plan from Body for Life to a keto diet in a medically supervised weight loss plan.  I have lost the weight and I have gained the weight back. With CoolSculpting, the fat cells are gone.  My clothes fit better with little effort on my part and no pain or downtime.

I’ve been so busy that I have not been able to see my good friend in St. Louis for liposuction. With CoolSculpting, what’s convenient for me is that I can have the treatments done when I have a short break at work. I have two machines, so most treatments take a little over an hour depending on how many areas you want to treat. In fact, when I did my neck with CoolSculpting, it was one treatment over lunch. I went back to work, saw my afternoon patients, and went out for dinner that night. Even in this very visible area, no one knew I had anything done even 20 minutes after the procedure.

CoolSculpting is safe and very effective.  It does require more than one treatment to each area as each treatment can remove up to 25% of the unwanted fat. Because my personal results have made me feel so much better about my appearance, I am very excited to be able to offer this body contouring treatment for men and women in Central Illinois. We all know that as we age, losing weight is much harder. Although maintaining a good exercise regimen and eating healthy is critical to keeping in shape, CoolSculpting has made the difference for me.  I encourage you to call, make an appointment with our CoolSculpting specialists, and find out how CoolSculpting can make you feel better about yourself, fit into your clothes better, and have a permanent removal of the fat that has driven you crazy for years.
