When results from dieting and exercise just aren’t enough to reach your ideal figure, you may be considering liposuction or Coolsculpting™. Each procedure is very different but the end results are the same – an improved body shape. The decision to go one way or the other will greatly depend on your personal preferences and a consultation with an experienced medical professional. Here is a comparison breakdown for liposuction vs Coolsculpting™ to help you make the best choice for you.
Coolsculpting™ vs Liposuction
How is Liposuction Done?
Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty, liposculpture and lipo, is the most popular cosmetic procedure in the US. After local or general anesthesia is administered, each liposuction surgery begins with a small incision to allow access to the targeted area. IV fluid is then injected to loosen the fat, and then the surgeon inserts a cannula (small metal, hollow tube) to begin suctioning out the fat. The surgeon sculpts the area to the correct contour through different incision sites.
How Does Coolsculpting™ Work?
Coolsculpting™ is an incredible noninvasive treatment for fat reduction by cryolpolysis (fat freezing). Each treatment will take 35 – 60 minutes and some patients have additional treatments during the same visit. Typically, patients need 1 – 3 separate treatments to achieve the desired results. Coolsculpting™ treatment begins with precise placement of a transparent gel pad to protect the skin and the applicator is set in place. The targeted area is suctioned into a cup and the controlled cooling begins to freeze fat cells. After this step, the practitioner will massage the treated area to break up more fat cells.
