WHY I CHOSE COOLSCULPTING AND DERMAL FILLERS
From the age of 11, I was aware of how I looked and the ideals in the world of beauty. As I became more conscious of what males and the world defined as pretty I started to become very self-conscious. Throughout my early teens, although these trends altered, one thing remained the same was the ideal face shape.
In my mid-teens I bought a makeup book on contouring and how to reshape and emphasize features. It stated the ideal face shape was a heart shape. My teenage selfwas crushed when I realised my face shape was defined as round.
Understanding that my round face shape was genetic was something I dealt with over the years, however, I never stopped being self-conscious over it. I really disliked the fact that no matter how much weight I would lose, I still had a “double-chin” based on my round face and small jawline. As time went on, this really damaged my self esteem and changed the way I felt about my body.
If I were to take photos, I would be very specific as to how they were taken and often resorted to editing programmes to slim my face and define my jawline. Eventually, I decided that I wanted to speak to someone about addressing my jawline.
I went to Health & Aesthetics to discuss with Dr Rekha Tailor my options. We created a bespoke treatment plan designed to treat my small, softer jawline and my double chin.
The first stage of treatment I decided on was CoolSculpting. After my consultation and assessment, I was told I may need up to 4 cycles of CoolSculpting to freeze and kill the unwanted fat cells under my chin.
The first stage of treatment was CoolScultping. After my consultation and assessment, I was told I may need up to 4 cycles of CoolSculpting to freeze and permanently remove the unwanted fat cells under my chin.
I was excited to get my treatment plan underway and knew that CoolSculpting was the first step to changing my face and ultimately, becoming more confident.
