Coolsculpting Treatment Review [Beverly Wilshire Medical Centre]

25 Aug

Hi Everyone!

I know you have been eagerly waiting for this post, and SO AM I!! (You can read about my consultation at Beverly Wilshire Medical Centre HERE). Today I am going to share about my Coolsculpting experience at Beverly Wilshire Medical Centre and reveal to you the whole procedure…

Aren’t you feeling nervous already?

beverly wilshire treatment roomAlthough Dr. Cheah has told me that this Coolsculpting treatment is not painful and has no downtime, I couldn’t help but still felt nervous about it. The nurses comforted me and kept assuring me that it is going to be fine. I was brought to a private treatment room and asked to changed into a surgery robe.

coolsculpting machineThe first step of the procedure is to apply a cool get pad on the treatment area. This is said to prevent frostbite. (Wait a minute, Frostbite?)

Frostbite is the medical condition in which localized damage is caused to skin and other tissues due to freezing.

And how does it relate to the procedure?

The Basic Concept of Coolsculpting

Coolsculpting by Zeltiq uses cold energy to permanently destroy fat cells. The Coolsculpting machine works by pulling your fat bulge into a device that has two cooling plates. The fats is held by a strong vacuum. The cooling plates are activated to a specific temperature where fat cells are vulnerable and die, and your skin, nerves, blood vessels, etc are fine. This process is about an hour for each area of treatment.

During this session, I will be doing the 2 areas, the left and right side of my waist.

OMG~ I was so nervous!

I was instructed to bend my body a little so that the suction head can suck good amount of fats around my waist area.

AND HERE IT COMES!~

coolsculpting applying the suctionIt was a pretty funny feeling, it was like a your waist was being sucked by a giant vacuum cleaner. A bit painful at the beginning, but it eventually became numb after about 3-4 minutes. I didn’t really feel the coldness, mainly just NUMB…

And then we waited for 60 minutes for the Coolsculpting machine to do its miraculous job~

The helpful nurse than gently removed the cool gel pad and massaged the treated area. After a few minutes, it softened and back to its normal form.

This time I decided to take a short nap and rest for while. Sleep deprivation is probably the worst side effect of being a mother…

And because the fats will take several weeks to shrink, I was still the same size immediately after the procedure.

I got my clothes changed, waved goodbye to the nurses and I was ready to go back to work!

How convenient!

Many times, I feel so blessed to live in this era where we have access to all these advanced technologies that helps us to live our lives better. This magnificent Coolsculpting treatment from Beverly Wilshire Medical Centre truly is a blessings to all working mothers like me or whoever that wants to shrink down stubborn fats.

妹妹,你是朝鲜人吗?

13 Aug

美好的星期四,突然间很想发文分享一下关于我们家安娜宝出世的情况。这样的生活记录,可以顺便和身边第一次怀孕的朋友分享一下经验哦!

话说,安娜宝是过了预产期6天才出世的。结果在过了预产期的待产期间,妈妈我整个坐立不安,每天都神经兮兮的很勤劳的到医院检查宝宝的心跳。

IMG_4548

IMG_4547老公也很耐心的一直陪伴。
IMG_4549

IMG_4550这是临盆的前一天,到医院做最后一次产检。医生说如果多两天还是没有宫缩的情况的话,就要打针催产了。我当时就在想啊,这个安娜宝在肚子里就待得这么舒服吗?
IMG_4553我手里握着的是胎动记录器。宝宝一天大约会有10次的胎动左右。
IMG_4554

IMG_4555然后呢,报告显示一切都很正常。照超声波的时候,医生指着电脑屏幕说,看,宝宝的脸很圆很胖!我和老公看了看超声波的画面,什么嘛,这根本就是 Chipmunks (花栗鼠)的脸型!*晕* 记得当下心里真的觉得很好笑,我和老公都是VV脸,怎么宝宝会是个大饼脸呢?

当时,从报告上来看已经有宫缩的情况了,但是我并没有太大的感觉。

离开医院前,医生嘱咐说要我在晚上入院,因为第二胎分娩的时间会相对的较短。所以如果等到羊水破了以后才入院,怕会来不及。所以呢,当天晚上把大宝哄睡了交给妈妈以后,在接近午夜的时候进了产房。

IMG_4556护士很贴心的拿了一些点心和饮料给我,帮我换衣服,然后让我填写入院需要的一些资料。

IMG_4557记得整个气氛还蛮舒适的,肚子真的也不怎么会痛。我还在心里暗暗高兴,大家都说第二胎不会那么痛,而且会比较容易生,看起来是真的~

IMG_4559老公也超放松的(第一次时我们还真的紧张死了),还带了DVD和我一起看~IMG_4560

IMG_4562躺着躺着,开始觉得很睏,而且产房里只有一张床和这样一张超小的沙发,老公根本没有没有地方好好休息。所以我们就问护士说,我们是否能够回到病房内休息。结果护士竟然告诉我们,产妇(就是我啦)的宫口已经有两公分张开了(注:张大到十公分就可以顺产了),所以一定要在产房待产。哎哟,可是这样根本没办法好好睡呀!产房里的床硬邦邦的…

IMG_4565来,自拍一下~ 话说这次入院待产前,也很细心的画了一个简单的妆哦!

就这样睡了又醒,醒了又睡。望一望墙上的钟,四点半了… 我悄悄地叫醒睡在小沙发上的老公:欸,老公,你会饿吗?

老公惺忪地说,有一点。你饿啊?我去买点早餐给你吃。

结果,他就开车去买了麦当劳早餐。(还真是麦当劳的忠实粉丝啊~)

IMG_4566渐渐地,天亮了起来。
IMG_4567阳光看起来好温暖。我轻轻摸着肚子里的宝宝,心想:

宝宝,天亮了。

你准备好了吗?

阵痛开始越来越强烈了。

IMG_4569护士帮我放针准备注射止痛剂。这一次天真的以为第二胎会快一点,所以还是没有选择无痛分娩针~IMG_4572一夜没睡好,加上止痛剂真的让人很嗜睡…

糟了,这下怎么会有力气生孩子呢?IMG_4571阵痛的非常厉害,护士开始让我使用 laughing gas,让我痛的时候才吸。我吸了两口,觉得真的没什么作用,手心一直冒汗。心里开始担心,担心这一次恐怕是挨不过去了。脑中浮现一百种想法,我可以请医生放药催生快点结束这种剧烈的痛楚,又或者我可以现在选择麻醉剖腹生产… 我很睏很累,心里尽是大大小小的矛盾想法。我觉得我连说话的力气也没有了,我虚弱的告诉老公,我很累,想睡一下。结果是几乎昏睡过去的。在一阵忙乱的脚步声中醒来,原来是医生来了。

医生向护士们了解我的状况,戴了手套就检查宫口张开的距离。

她说,很好,很快可以生了。

然后她就告诉我,会把羊水刺穿,然后宫缩/阵痛的情况会越来越激烈,中午之前,就能顺利分娩了。我捏了捏自己的手掌,心里有说不出的害怕。

那个时刻就要到来了。

我压抑着内心的恐惧,轻轻的点了点头说,我知道了,谢谢医生。

结果她伸手用力一戳(具体用什么用具我还真没看清楚),羊水就哗啦哗啦的流出,护士们忙着找来器皿、毛巾等等… 医生按着我的肚子,让羊水流出… 我心里只觉得毛毛的,一句话也说不出来。
IMG_4568接着,阵痛越来越频密,下腹越来越痛,一度让我觉得几乎昏厥过去。我已经没有办法很好的思考,握住老公的手,一直不停的说,我很痛,真的很痛。老公帮我提着laughing gas的管子,让我觉得痛的时候就吸。我就在想,这个东西(laughing gas)根本一点用处也没有,我依然痛的天旋地转的。我们不断的祷告,希望神的保守,让我可以顺利的分娩。间中一直不停的问身旁的护士,可以生了吗?护士们会不时地检查宫口张开的情况,就快了

在这样的剧烈阵痛下过了90分钟。多么煎熬的90分钟啊~护士最后一次检查,宫口张开至9公分了。Mdm. Wong, 宫口张开至9公分了,我现在打电话给医生让她过来。接着便转头向其它的护士安排工作,请她们准备好需要的设备与手术用具。

我已经痛得在昏厥的边缘。怎么办?怎么办?我不停的向神祷告,求祂给我力量和勇气去面对即将发生的事。这时医生快步地走进产房,迅速的换上了一套手术袍并围上了塑料围裙。我看着她,用几乎哀求的语气说,医生,我真的觉得很痛,你能够为我做些什么吗?结果她并没有听见我的诉求,只是忙着交代护士们调整我的姿势,把产台的位置调整好。我顿时觉得这个世界只剩下我一个人。所有的痛苦都只属于我一个人。我用虚弱的手拨开脸上的头发时,才发现自己正在流眼泪。

我静静的在心里告诉自己:Eryn,不要哭,你要冷静。冷静的想想,应该怎样做。步骤应该是这样的,当阵痛开始时就用力的推,阵痛停止时就休息。这么简单的步骤,你一定可以做到的。

我接过老公手里的laughing gas,用力的吸了两口。感觉整个世界正在快速的旋转。我没有听见自己的叫喊声,也没有哭泣,因为我把重点放在呼吸的节奏上,然后不断的告诉自己,没有人可以帮助你,你一定要冷静并坚强的把安娜宝带到这个世界。

神啊,求你保守我们,让我坚强。

然后医生告诉我子宫颈已经完全打开,现在要用力把宝宝推出来。我的两条腿被架在产台的两旁,当阵痛来的时候,就好像身体被撕裂一般。我用尽气力,强忍住不哭不喊。

我可以的。

加油,我已经看见宝宝的头了,医生对我说。

就这样用力推了4至5次左右,安娜宝终于被成功娩出。

IMG_2673护士把她包裹好便直接放我怀里。

Hello Baby~

这是我对她说的第一句话。我们终于见面了。

这是医生正在迅速的进行后续处理。

这边的护士把宝宝放在保温箱,替她做些基本检查;另一边的护士在我大腿上注射止痛剂;而医生正在专注的缝合阴部的伤口。很多人问我,缝合的时候会痛吗?说真的,可能是如果把分娩的疼痛和缝合的疼痛相比,我几乎感觉不到缝合的痛。(这样形容会太夸张吗?)

IMG_2674护士对老公说,是个健康的宝宝,而且真的很大呢。

我当时就听见医生回应说,这个baby真的很大,产房里其他的护士也纷纷说baby很大。当时我心里就想,很大吗?能有多大?不就是个baby嘛!(后来称一称,竟然有4.03公斤!!!)不要问我怎样吃出一个这么大的娃!我自己也差点儿吓死了~

脸很大就是真的,眼睛小小的一条线,我摸了摸baby的手,悄悄地问她:

妹妹,你是朝鲜人吗?

很快的,后续处理完毕。护士为安娜宝套上有妈妈名字的脚环后就把她推去nursery了。大家收拾完毕,就剩下我和老公在产房里。
IMG_4574

现在看回去,还真觉得自己很能撑呢~

漫长的等待终于结束了。

我的确做到了。
IMG_4575

转回病房不一会儿,妈妈就带着Isabelle来看我了。小小孩真开心。她爸爸不断的告诉她,她做姐姐了!
IMG_4576

这时,护士把整理干净的安娜宝推了进来。

这就是我们一家四口的第一张合照。IMG_4578天啊~这脸…IMG_4579那天下午,我睡了很久。全身酸痛,几乎感觉不到我的两条腿,站起来都需要人搀扶。那天晚上,老公留在医院陪我。早上六点,我被下腹的疼痛痛醒,转头望见躺在沙发上正熟睡的老公。可怜陪我折腾了这么一天。

欸,你会冷吗?

要过来一起睡吗?

他微笑,慢慢的起身然后窜进我的被窝里。我们俩就这样在病床上睡着了。

IMG_4580没有孩子在身边,我们仿佛有回到了拍拖时的两人世界。(是苦中作乐的意思吗?)IMG_4583如果说孩子是上帝赐的礼物,那么有一个疼爱自己和孩子的丈夫,就是当你拆开礼物以后发现里面还有一个礼物。
IMG_4584觉得他真的很会照顾我呢~IMG_4582趁等待宝宝来喝奶之前,偷偷的拿出预备好的化妆包画个美妆。(我想应该没有人这样吧?)你一定在笑,这个死爱美的产妇,都什么时候了。但我告诉你,如果情况允许的话,我还会用电卷棒烫头发呢~

在小儿科医生和妇科医生检查后,我们第二天就可以出院回家了~

这个应该就是自然分娩的好处吧,身体恢复得相当快。IMG_4587

大家看,我的小眼睛大脸妹妹~

IMG_4585

IMG_4590

IMG_4589好啦,这次就写到这里(好长一篇哦!),希望没有吓到你们哦!不知不觉,就这样过了三个多月。回想起当时的情景还历历在目。自然分娩的过程的确是残忍而疼痛的,但是所有的痛苦都会过去,留下的都是美丽的回忆。曾经听过某人说,选择自然分娩又不打无痛分娩针的妈妈真伟大,我却不敢苟同。我认为所有的母亲,无论你是选择打针还是不打针,自然分娩还是剖腹产,任何一种分娩方式都存在风险,都是用性命和血泪换来的。对我来说,“妈妈”本身就是坚强的生命斗士。
IMG_4592上帝的恩典是如此美好,做妈妈是女人一生中最精彩的一次华丽转身,让女人变得坚强、勇敢、并且收获更多的幸福。妈妈们,加油咯!
