Dr. Cynthia Mizgala Shares Her CoolSculpting Experience
In my practice, I find making a connection with the patient is way more important than the technology. I like to sit down with my patients and go over what their expectations are, and to give them a basic, bottom line, from A to Z of all the different technologies. I like to start with the basics. I first learned about CoolSculpting a few years ago, and it sounded way too good to be true. Since I've been a teenager, everyone was looking for a way to lose fat without putting in the effort. As we know, the most important way to keep fat off is by limiting our caloric intake and increasing our exercise or caloric output. Everyone knows that and everyone does try to have a healthy lifestyle, but sometimes we just get in a rut, or sometimes we just have a problem area that doesn't respond. So, here comes CoolSculpting.
You can freeze my fat without me doing an effort, sounds great, couldn't believe it. I went back and actually contacted the company to see if they could set up a demonstration in my office, and I was my first patient. You can see, from my before and after results, that, without dieting, I had a pretty dramatic result that even I couldn't believe. Because it happened so gradually that you don't really notice, on a day-to-day basis, but when you do the three month before and after, my result was quite dramatic.
Seeing is believing. I don't like to offer anything to my patients, no matter what the price, what the cost savings are, unless I know it's effective and it's safe.
