Coolsculpting® and Liposuction are NOT the same!

CoolSculpting® And Liposuction

For many people, using clinical procedures for weight-loss brings one thing to mind: liposuction.

Liposuction is a major surgical procedure that uses a clinical suction technique to remove fat cells from specific areas of the body, such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms or neck.

Understandably, many people are wary to undergo expensive surgery with significant downtown.

In the last five years, the popularity of a procedure called Coolsculpting® has risen in popularity.  As a practitioner of Coolsculpting® for nearly two years, we have one main thing to say to someone that is considering a clinical procedure for weight loss:

Coolsculpting® and Liposuction are NOT the same!

Coolsculpting® is not a surgery.  Liposuction is major surgery.

There are a variety of differences, then, for the patient.  Because it is not surgery, there are no needles, no anesthesia, and no downtime with Coolsculpting.

The result, though, is the same: fat cells are removed from the body.  Whereas one procedure vacuums the dead fat cells out surgically and invasively, the other, Coolsculpting®, allows your body to process them naturally.

What is CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting® is an innovative, fat freezing process or procedure that actually eliminates fat from your body. It’s the only way other than liposuction to literally get rid of fat cells for good.

During a Coolsculpting® procedure, we use a special tool to localize an are.  Then, we bring that area of fat to a freezing temperature.  In the days and weeks after the treatment, the patient’s body naturally eliminates the frozen fat cells through the liver and out of the body.

Most people begin to see results within just a few weeks of the treatment!

Other differences between Coolsculpting® and Liposuction:

  • Liposuction side effects may include negative reactions to anesthesia, blood clots, or other serious complications. There are no major side effects with Coolsculpting®.

  • There are typically a few days of recovery from lipo surgery.  There is no recovery time with Coolsculpting®.  Patients are out the door, perhaps with a little bruising, and back to their normal life immediately.

  • Results from lipo can be seen after a few months.  Results from Coolsculpting® can be seen after a few weeks.

  • The cost of Coolsculpting® is typically less than the average liposuction procedure.
