CoolSculpting vs. Liposuction: Which Procedure is Best for Me?

If you’re going to make 2019 the year of your ultimate body, think of The John Bull Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Medispa as your partner in crime.

We know you’re already following a healthy diet and exercise regimen. You’re probably also trying to reduce your stress and indulge in some self-care. But if you’re still not seeing the fat reduction results you want, it might be time to consider CoolSculpting or liposuction for a little boost.

Wondering which procedure is best for you? Read on!

All About CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved treatment that focuses on removing fat cells clustered beneath the dermis – all without requiring surgery or stitches. Instead, CoolSculpting uses freezing energy to penetrate the dermis and crystallize those fat cells that won’t respond to diet and exercise. After some time (about eight to twelve weeks), the fat cells are drained away by the body’s lymphatic systems, resulting in noticeable inch loss with no down-time.

*Individual Results May Vary

The CoolSculpting procedure can take as little as an hour to perform and is most commonly used on the abdomen, upper arms, and underneath the chin.

Liposuction 101

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that allows a plastic surgeon to manually remove larger quantities of stubborn fat. Liposuction remains one of the more popular treatment options available today due to the fact that it delivers fast and extremely noticeable results. Liposuction surgery can be performed anywhere, but is most commonly requested for the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and even underneath the chin.

CoolSculpting vs. Liposuction: Which One is Best for Me?

Wondering if you should opt for CoolSculpting or liposuction?

The option largely depends on your desired outcome, the time you can take for recovery, and your skin laxity. For example, if you want to remove larger amounts of fat and have good skin elasticity, you may see better and faster results with liposuction. If, however, you have a specific pocket of fat that you want to smooth away and don’t want to have surgery done, CoolSculpting may be the better option for your lifestyle.
