You’ve finally decided: You’re ready to get off the fat reduction merry-go-round.
Sure, you eat healthily and get plenty of exercise. But for some reason, all of your hard work just isn’t helping you get the inch-loss results you’re looking for. That’s why you’re ready to get a little extra help to fit more comfortably into your clothing. But when it comes to what method you’ll use for that help, you’re not sure what’s the best option…
Non-surgical fat freezing with CoolSculpting, or liposuction?
What’s the Difference Between CoolSculpting and Liposuction?
Before you can pick a method to help with fat reduction, it’s important to understand the differences between the two. And when it comes to CoolSculpting and liposuction, there are plenty.
Perhaps the biggest difference is that CoolSculpting is a non-surgical fat reduction solution, meaning there’s no need for incisions or general anesthesia. Additionally, because there’s no surgery, patients who undergo CoolSculpting can immediately go back to their normal routines, rather than spend days or weeks in recovery.
Liposuction can be a major surgical procedure. It is designed to break up larger pockets of fat, especially around the abdomen and thighs. While this procedure has improved over recent years thanks to new laser cannula technologies, liposuction still carries some recovery time, meaning you’ll likely need to take some time from work. Plus, you should expect some swelling and bruising from your liposuction treatment for several weeks after the procedure.
What Treatment is Best for Me?
The best treatment for you will largely depend on your goals. For example, if you have large pockets of fat and want as much fat as possible removed, you would be a good candidate for liposuction.
If, however, you’re within 15 to 20 pounds of your ideal weight and want a no-hassle approach to getting your clothes to fit the way you’ve always wanted, CoolSculpting is a better option.
