Both CoolSculpting and liposuction target stubborn fat cells in areas of the body such as the thighs, abdominal region, flanks, and upper arms. If you’ve tried working out and dieting and still find yourself stuck with excess fat, you might be considering one of these procedures. While both procedures are used with the same goal of achieving a slimmer, well-toned body, CoolSculpting is the more appealing option for many patients. Read on to learn more about the two procedures to determine if you could benefit from CoolScultping instead of undergoing liposuction.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that uses cooling technology to freeze stubborn fat cells in a matter of a few hours. If the idea of going under the knife scares you, then CoolSculpting is the answer! There is minimal discomfort during treatment and virtually no recovery time. You can even read, play on your phone, or take a nap during treatment. Results from CoolSculpting are noticeable after one treatment, but may not be dramatic. Coming back for a second and third treatment will continue the fat removal process for more desired results. If you experience mild stubborn fat or your stubborn fat is limited to one area, CoolSculpting is ideal for you!
Liposuction is a surgical procedure requiring you to be under sedation or general anesthesia. During the procedure, small incisions are made and stubborn fat is removed through a cannula. Like most surgical procedures, you will be required to go through some recovery time before you can get back to regular activities. Liposuction can give you dramatic results if you are willing to go through surgery and some downtime.
CoolSculpting gives effective results for a slimmer, well-toned figure while avoiding the stress and discomfort of recovering from surgery. Unless you experience stubborn fat that is severe or covers a large part of your body, CoolSculpt is the preferred treatment over liposuction.
