30 Jan CoolSculpting versus Liposuction
Which procedure is best really depends on the client. If you are OK with having surgery under anesthesia, extensive recovery time, pain, medications, and not being able to exercise for 6 weeks, then liposuction may give you the results you are wanting. If you would rather not undergo surgery and want NO down time and are willing to be patient (2-4 months) to see the results, non-invasive fat removal with CoolSculpting would be a great choice.
Some liposuction procedures may remove more fat than CoolSculpting, but keep in mind that Liposuction is invasive with the risks of any surgery and a long recovery period. CoolSculpting has no downtime with very minimal discomfort and the results can be fantastic!
CoolSculpting freezes fat cells (cryolipolysis) without affecting other tissues; the fat in the adipocytes (fat cells) will freeze at a controlled temperature inducing cellular apoptosis (programmed cell death) hence a permanent solution.
Personally, I recommend coolSculpting to my clients not only because I have done it myself and love it (I did my flanks and inner thighs) but also due to the great results we’ve achieved without notable side effects. To me, CoolSculpting is a better option because it’s non-invasive and has very little downtime.
The best treatment for you also depends on how much fat you want removed. CoolSculpting is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese, or a substitute for surgical methods such as liposuction. The best candidates for CoolSculpting have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of.
