Benefits of CoolSculpting vs. Liposuction
- Posted on: Mar 24 2014
When the weather warms up, or if unsightly lumps are making it impossible to wear the clothes you really want to, CoolSculpting is quickly becoming a popular option over the older technique of liposuction.
Why? Since it is an invasive surgery, liposuction can require extensive time for recovering and healing.
When considering liposuction most people are surprised by what is involved in the recovery and healing from the surgery. Patients must take time off work, and results take weeks to show, due to all the bruising and swelling associated with the procedure. Patients also require painkillers, since there are typically multiple incisions and extensive bruising.
In contrast, CoolSculpting is non-invasive and doesn’t require anesthetics, just a quick visit to our office! Coolsculpting works by freezing fat cells beneath the skin, reducing their size. You can see results just moments after the appointment and can get right back to whatever you’d like to do for the rest of the day!
With CoolSculpting you can reduce the fat on your back, abdomen, inner thighs, or obliques (the ‘muffin top’ or ‘love handle’ area). Like liposuction, CoolSculpting is ideally for healthy individuals who are close to their ideal body weight, and is the perfect method to get rid of those last few stubborn spots after losing weight. In just a few sessions, you’ll get the same results liposuction would give, without all the risks and downtime that come with surgery.
