One of the most common questions we get at Advanced Skin and Body Solutions is “what is the best way to get rid of my stubborn fat?” As CoolSculpting specialists with over 6,000 treatments under our belt, we can say with great certainty that CoolSculpting is a much better option for fat removal than liposuction. Here are just a few reasons why:
CoolSculpting is Non-Invasive
Liposuction is a surgical procedure in which doctors create an incision and use a wand-like device to remove fat from a specific area of the body. Unlike liposuction, CoolSculpting treatments take place on the exterior of the body and the treated area is placed between two panels and cooled to a freezing temperature. This “frozen fat” is then naturally released by the body without the need for surgery.
CoolSculpting is Painless
One of the major drawbacks to liposuction is that there is some pain associated with the procedure. As with most surgeries, there is swelling and bruising after liposuction which can be extremely uncomfortable. Because CoolSculpting treatments are not surgical in nature, they are a painless way to get rid of stubborn fat in a specific area of the body.
CoolSculpting Has No Downtime
One of the best benefits of CoolSculpting over liposuction is that there is no downtime associated with the procedure. Clients often come in during their lunch hour and go back to work immediately after a session. Unlike CoolSculpting, liposuction patients often need to take time off of work to recover from their surgery. This is not the case with CoolSculpting and is a major benefit of choosing CoolSculpting over liposuction.
CoolScultping is Generally More Cost-Effective than Liposuction
Although each case is different depending on the areas being treated, CoolSculpting is generally a more affordable way to remove fat permanently than liposuction. Although our CoolSculpting experts have been awarded Diamond status and are number #1 in the State of Washington, liposuction is generally performed by an M.D. There also might be a cost for an anesthesiologist and other staff to perform a liposuction procedure which can increase costs.
