BrianHG:
     The theory is that fat cell freezing works, HOWEVER, I believe the temperature needs to be perfectly regulated to a specific temperature within less than half a degree Celcius just under skin.  In other words, a sophisticated real-time thermal scan and regulation using TEC coolers.  The idea was to freeze the top layer of fat cells to death, let the body heal over a month to clear them out, then repeat again and again until you got rid of a small amount of fat.  It is useless for obesity and I have not seen definitive proof that it actually works.

See a picture of the machine and results here: https://ca.coolsculpting.com/home

:( Sad to say I believe this was invented in my home town.  And I am sure it costs big $ per visit as you need many.

If you exercise on a normal occasion for fitness, I bet if you wear a little over-tight 3/5mm wetsuit/shortie, I bet the effect would be similar as you compress and added sweat away the loose fat.

At my nearest Walmart in Oberlin (yes, where the music college is) is usually where one see these abs:[attachimg=1]

The coolsculpting thing apparently works for quite a few.  But there are some highly publicized cases of extreme failures.  I suspect it is like the collagen injections and all the other things that vanity drives people to do.  Works amazing sometimes.  Works ok most of the time.  And has way too frequent massive failures.  And almost never solves the underlying psychological problems that drive people to spend time and money this way.

Former supermodel Linda Evangelista is one of the better-known cases where it failed pretty severely.
