I'm really not trying to be a tease ….
I promise you The Nipple Story tomorrow.
I'm all discombobulated without my computer and I'm not even kidding – I can't think in a straight line without it.
I've got the shakes.
It's been over 24 hours now. I'm never going to make it two weeks without my laptop.
I can't work on our desktop computer because it would involve raising my right arm up to desk level to type. I can't lift my arm to do that except very briefly because … um, I have a bum arm. Instead, I've currently stolen borrowed PR's laptop for a few minutes. He probably needs it for Facebook homework this very minute.
Nonetheless, I had to tell you about Fat Freezing because I predict it's going to be the new rage in Orange County. In fact, it's already here, but on a very limited basis.
All of my readers, in places like North Dakota and Minnesota, are thinking, "What the hell? We freeze our fat all winter long!"
Not that I'm saying you're fat. I'm sure you're not. I wasn't trying to imply in any way whatsoever, that you are fat. I just meant, if you happened to have even one ounce of body fat anywhere on your body …..
It's called Zeltiq.
Some of my readers in Asia and Europe may already be familiar with it?
By the way, I'm in no way endorsing Zeltiq because I haven't tried it. All I've done is read their website along with several articles about it.
The concept is something I think the OC women, and men, will jump on. It's kind of like liposuction, except entirely different. (Meaning: It's designed to decrease fat in my thighs targeted areas and not a method of overall weight loss.)
There are no needles, no need for anesthesia, no incisions … it's not surgery. Basically, it's a machine which cools fat to around 41F/5C during a one hour session. The fat pretty much freezes (actually crystallizes) , killing the fat cells. A person's body will then naturally dispose of the dead fat cells over the course of the next several weeks.
Now, what's the cost of getting rid of your tummy bulge? It depends, I guess, on how many one hour sessions it takes to freeze your fat off. In reading online reviews, it looks like $2-3,000 per body area is average. (One session runs around $800, but most areas require more than one session.)
I'm not sure how this compares to the cost of liposuction?
The big advantage, it seems, is the fact that freezing your fat off is not a painful process, whereas liposuction is. (One of my friends had liposuction on her thighs, hips and butt and told me she felt like she had been run over by a truck for a few weeks after.)
I wish someone would lipo the fat off my thighs, hips and butt too ….
However, I've already been run over by a truck car and it still hurts years later – so, no thank you.
What do you think about this new procedure? Would you pay to have your fat frozen off?
