Im asking for a”friend” who just happens to sleep in close proximity to me....:girl

She has lost about 30, and is close to where she wants to be, but has a few stubborn spots that this procedure might help with.

Heard both good and bad. Like other cosmetic surgery the artistic, medical, and technical expertise of the practitioner are of the utmost importance. Like other artists and medical practitioners, some are great, some are bad, and some are competent. There are some chains like Sonobello that do this.

Changes in lifestyle, diet, etc. must preceed/accompany/continue after coolsculpting for best results. Also consult with both regular doc and the coolsculpt surgeon about medical conditions, otc and prescription drugs, supplements, food/beverages, exercise, activities, etc. that can help/hinder

Thanks, for now, its just an option she is considering. She would never do any cosmetic surgery, but this is different, and one that might help her in her athletic, good diet lifestyle.

Cool sculpting is classified as cosmetic surgery, although it's not invasive :smile
Some places classify it otherwise.

Important: See how it needs to be classified/coded/specified so her insurance covers it. Wording/classification/numbers are everything. There might also need to be a specific diagnosis, condition, percent/number, and/or doc recommendation (sometimes as part of a treatment plan). Etc. If insurance absolutely won't cover it, some places have coupons and/or payment plans. There might also be a clinical trial (free or they pay her). An alternative medicine practitioner or weight loss clinic/program might be able to prescribe to get it covered, too.

I doubt our insurance would cover it, but will be deducted from the Bank of Connie.... :nod and Im not sure how it can be referred to as “surgery”.

Anything cosmetic seems to be labeled as such. Even collagen and botox injections, permanent make-up, laser skin resurfacing, etc. :eek
*Fat freezing cosmetic surgery* :rolleyes

Other places call it *non-surgical body sculpting* (along with heat and ultrasound methods of body sculpting, etc.)

Maybe it makes a difference on license/insurance/practice requirements, or maybe it makes a difference in how much they can charge or maybe it's for third party billing . . .
