As late afternoon approaches, I am a little apprehensive, after all, it is judgment day. Am I ready for the CoolSculpting by Zeltiq® consultation appointment? 4:15pm is around the corner and I am about to open the door to the building where Dr. Born practices. Ready or not, I entered into Dr. Born’s waiting room, once again greeted by the friendly staff, Virginia and Lucy.
It has been about twenty-five years (OMG, a quarter of a century, yikes!), since my flat stomach. I am not a big person, five feet and just shy of that one elusive inch. During my teenage years, I could eat like a horse and not gain an ounce, (ahhh, the days of a fast metabolism), I used to hover around 110 – 115 lbs, fit and trim. As the years went on, my metabolism started to slow down and then pregnancy, not one, but two - bye bye washboard, hello mommy tummy.
So, here I am, awaiting my consultation appointment to see if I would be a good candidate for this non-invasive procedure, “CoolSculpting by Zeltiq®”, freezing my tummy fat whereby the fat cells are destroyed and eventually eliminated from my body.
I am escorted to the consultation room where Dr. Born appears a few minutes later. He, in his stylish grey suit, looked more like a celebrity, ready to walk the red carpet at TIFF than a doctor for my consultation. We went through some questions and answers and the verdict? Drumroll please. Dr. Born feels that CoolSculpting by Zeltiq®” would work for me. It won’t take me back to my washboard days, but it will be a 20% improvement on my mommy tummy.
Alright then, lets schedule my return visit for the CoolSculpting by Zeltiq® procedure.
