What’s Better: CoolSculpting or Liposuction?
CoolSculpting and Liposuction are both effective, well-known procedures to remove fat, and Dr. Ali offers both at his Bloomfield Hills area surgical practice and Med Spa. Both treatments have pros and cons!
The following information discusses these facts to help you identify which procedure is best for you. However, the optimal way to make your decision about fat removal is to have a private, consultation to assess your body, discuss your body goals and answer all your questions. Once you’re informed about your specific body, you’ll be able to make an educated decision.
Fat Removal by Liposuction
Liposuction is performed by a doctor or surgeon and is an invasive, surgical procedure of sucking unwanted fat out of an area of the body.
A liposuction patient can be, but isn’t always “put under”. Most liposuction is conducted with local anesthesia. Using small incisions, a tube is inserted into the target area and the fat is literally sucked out of the body.
Liposuction usually only requires one procedure per area to reach the fat loss goal. Because of the invasive nature of liposuction, there is usually 2 to 7 days of downtime before resuming normal activities. Pain and discomfort is typical from 2 weeks to 2 months after Liposuction. Strong medication is used to manage pain and can gradually move to over-the-counter pain medication like Tylenol or ibuprofen.
After Liposuction, a patient can expect the swelling for up to 4 to 6 weeks. Since the fat was sucked out, the full results of liposuction will be visible once swelling is gone.
Fat Removal By CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure to literally freeze fat from targeted areas of the body. There are no needles, no anesthesia and no incisions. And amazingly, there is no downtime to work around. Patients can return to their normal activities immediately. Many people go back to work right after having completed their treatment.
CoolSculpting works by freezing fat – then over time, eliminating those cells through the body’s natural processes. Whereas, Liposuction removes the fat immediately during the procedure.
Results from CoolSculpting will begin to be visible in 2 to 4 weeks after the procedure. Greater results will be visible after 2 months. The complete result of a CoolSculpting treatment can take from 3 to 5 months. However, unlike the surgical procedure of Liposuction, there is no discomfort or swelling with CoolSculpting.
Since each CoolSculpting treatment removes 20 to 25 percent of fat cells in the targeted area, it is possible that more than one treatment is necessary to obtain the desired results. Whereas Liposuction will suck out all fat cells during the single surgical process.
Because CoolSculpting is non-invasive and non-surgical, requiring no anesthesia or downtime, it is much less expensive than Liposuction.
CoolSculpting and Liposuction Similarities
CoolSculpting and Liposuction both target fat cells that are unaffected by diet and exercise. Both procedures are not a solution to help with obesity. Tightening up loose skin and muscles in the abdomen are not an issue that either of these treatments can fix. However, CoolSculpting does help tighten abdominal skin to some degree, while liposuction does not.
The most appealing benefit that both CoolSculpting and Liposuction offer is that the fat will be removed permanently. Fat cells are gone and will never return!
Differences of CoolSculpting & Liposuction
Liposuction usually only requires one single treatment while CoolSculpting can require multiple treatments.
However, CoolSculpting is non-invasive, is not painful, has no downtime, and is much cheaper compared to Liposuction.
For these reasons, many medical professionals and patients at our Bloomfield Hills, Mi area Med Spa often prefer CoolSculpting as the better fat loss treatment!
