There are many options for stubborn fat removal. Depending on your goals, CoolSculpting or liposuction can be great options. The dermatologists from Dermatology & Mohs Surgery Institute will help you reach your goals using the fat-removal method that you are eligible for.
When deciding between CoolSculpting or liposuction, there are many things to consider. Both medical procedures reduce fat in specific areas, such as the stomach or arms, but there are key differences. Both procedures produce similar results, but the way they are done is what is important. Below, learn more about the potential advantages and disadvantages of each.
CoolSculpting or Cryotherapy (fat freezing) is a non-invasive procedure that removes extra fat cells beneath the skin. This non-invasive procedure uses a special tool to clamp down on the fat and then cool it to freezing temperatures.
CoolSculpting is a great option for people who are looking for an easy, non-invasive procedure.
Liposuction, unlike CoolSculpting is an invasive procedure that involves cutting, sewing, and the administration of anesthesia. To reduce swelling after surgery, you will likely need to wear compression garments. To remove fat from a particular area of your body, a small incision will be made. Liposuction candidates are in good health and have no medical conditions.
To see full results, you will usually only need one liposuction procedure. The results of liposuction are usually permanent, as long as you don’t lose weight too often.
What are your treatment goals
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical option for patients who want to reduce fat in a specific area such as the love handles and outer thighs. The treatment area will determine the number of treatment sessions required.
CoolSculpting is designed to reduce fat in specific areas. To achieve the best results, multiple sessions may be required. After your CoolSculpting procedure, your body will continue to remove the damaged fat cells.
Liposuction is a good option for patients who want to reduce excess fat in a larger area or patients who desire a dramatic change in their body contour. Liposuction allows for more fat removal in a single session and is therefore a more aggressive option. For patients who desire more body contouring, liposuction may be combined with other surgical procedures such as autologous fat transfers. Liposuction fat can be injected in areas where it is desired to increase volume, such as the breasts, buttocks, and face. CoolSculpting does not result in a noticeable reduction in body fullness or improved contour. This is evident within days.
What is the recovery time?
CoolSculpting, which is non-surgical, provides patients with a fast recovery, minimal discomfort, and low risk of complications. Patients can usually resume their normal activities within a few hours after the procedure. Patients may experience minor redness, bruising, tingling or numbness in the area being treated. These symptoms are usually temporary and will disappear quickly.
The recovery process after liposuction is quick. The recovery rate depends on how much fat was removed and how many areas were treated. Within a week, patients can return to work or resume their normal activities. You will see a reduction in your body’s fullness and a better contour within a few days.
CoolSculpting and liposuction are not recommended as a weight loss method. If you are overweight, diet and exercise would be the best options.
