CoolSculpting vs. Liposuction: Which is better?

If you are looking to contour your body and get a slimmer figure, you now have other options outside of liposuction, such as CoolSculpting. However, it’s often difficult to decide which will give you the results you want. So when it comes to CoolSculpting vs liposuction, which is better.

CoolSculpting vs Liposuction
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive body contouring solution that reduces fat using a system of controlled cooling. It is an FDA cleared procedure that freezes and destroys the fat cells. The fat is then naturally removed from the body. Since the fat cells are more vulnerable to the extreme cold, the surrounding tissue is not harmed.

Liposuction is a surgical procedure in which unwanted fat is removed with the use of a small tube, or cannula. The procedure is done using general anesthesia. The cannula is inserted under the skin and is used to break up the fat, which is then suctioned from the body.

Which is better?
The choice to select CoolSculpting vs liposuction will depend on your specific aesthetic goals. However, here are a few facts to consider.

  • CoolSculpting is a completely non-surgical procedure so it requires no anesthesia, no needles, and no downtime. It is therefore suitable for patients who want to contour their body without surgery.
  • CoolSculpting is a safe procedure and there are minimal side-effects. This makes it the ideal body sculpting procedure for people with busy lifestyles, who cannot afford a long downtime.
  • Liposuction is a surgical procedure, and therefore requires several days of downtime. There is generally significant swelling and bruising after treatment, and patients are required to wear a compression garment to help with healing.
