I love my children, but they definitely did a number on my body. After 2 pregnancies (and 2 C-sections) when I looked in the mirror I barely recognized myself anymore.
Despite eating healthily and working out regularly, it seemed like Mission Impossible to get rid of my new, after-baby poochy belly, and I hated it.
When I heard about TruSculpt, I was hesitantly excited. A treatment that simultaneously melted my stubborn, remaining baby-weight and tightened my skin sounded like exactly what I dreamed of, but surely this had to be too good to be true?
After an immediate consultation, I liked what I heard and scheduled a TruSculpt treatment to see if the results could possibly match up to the hype.
In regards to the treatment itself, it was much more comfortable than I expected. (This actually made me a little nervous though, because I felt like if it doesn't hurt-- can it possibly be able to get the results I wanted?) The treatment device had a large hand-piece that was held against all areas of my tummy. The hand-piece heated-up, and if it at any time it grew too hot, it was quickly turned down to a manageable temperature. It took a little over an hour to treat my whole stomach, and by the time it was finished I swear I could already see a difference. However, instead of letting my expectations and excitement run wild, I was reminded that full results would take up to 6-weeks to materialize and it was possible that I might even need another treatment in order to get maximum results.
I excitedly agreed that it was probably too soon to see drastic results, but secretly I could not wait to go home and see how my clothes fit, both now and over the course of the upcoming weeks. (After my babies were born, I didn't want a scale in the house, so my only real way to gauge my weight is how my clothes fit, and how I think I look in the mirror.) The night of the treatment, I was shocked that I could already feel that my pants were a little looser around the waist! This incredible shrinking process continued for the following few weeks, and it was amazing that fixing just one area of my body could have such a huge impact on the confidence I felt. Suddenly, I could wear tight fitting Lulu Lemon yoga pants again without being self-conscious of the tummy-bulge protuding over the top. When I sit down in jeans in now, I don't have to subtly tuck my belly-fat inside the waist-band of my pants. During my Pilates classes, I can look in the classroom mirror and no longer feel embarrassed about my thick middle in comparison to the sea of svelte bodies surrounding me. For the first time since I initially got pregnant, I felt sexy being in just my underwear again?!
But, the extent of my results was really hammered home when I went back six-weeks later for my 2nd TruSculpt treatment, and a new set of pictures were taken of me. My results were definitely incredible. I was weighed again at this point, and the remarkable thing is that even though my diet and work-out routine stayed the same, I had lost 5-pounds. This really solidified the efficacy of the TruSculpt treatment, because obviously every ounce of weight I lost came specifically from the treated stomach area.
When the subject of sharing my "Before and After" pictures was brought-up, I initially didn't want to-- the thought of admitting to the world that I had a fat-melting treatment performed on me seemed like an embarrassment I'd prefer to avoid if possible. The more I thought about it though, the more comfortable with the idea I became. This was a treatment process that totally changed the way I looked and felt about myself, if sharing my pictures could help other people going through similar situations to myself, of course I would want them to know there were truly great options available to them!
Thanks to TruSculpt fat-melting, skin tightening and body contouring, I feel proud to be in my body again.
