CoolSculpting Vs. Liposuction: 4 Things to Consider

Who doesn't want to get rid of unwanted fats and get a slimmer look? Everyone does that, right? But that's not an easy task either. Even after months of workouts and strict diet plans, it is not possible for everyone to get rid of stubborn fat especially if it is accumulated in some specific body parts, say the abdomen or thighs. In such circumstances, cosmetic surgical procedures have come to rescue such people.

The two most commonly used surgeries are liposuction and CoolSculpting for this purpose. These successfully remove the extra fat from under the skin without becoming much invasive. They are also suitable only for those who are near their ideal weight. There are still a few differences in both the procedures which every prospective patient needs to consider.

Which one of the two to choose depends on a lot of factors and some of those are mentioned below-

1. The Procedure

There is a slight difference in their ways of removing fat. Under liposuction, a suction tube called a
cannula is inserted into the body to remove the fat cells. After giving local anesthesia, the cannula is inserted at the respective place and then, fat cells are extracted through a high-pressure vacuum.

On the other hand, CoolSculpting is not typically a surgery but it uses fat-freezing technology to remove fat cells. On a visit to your surgeon, the requisite areas will be marked on which a non-invasive applicator will be applied to the skin. This would freeze the fat cells then and there without damaging any organ. Those dead fat cells are also naturally disposed of.

2. Effectiveness

There is hardly any difference between the two, both are equally effective with approximately similar results. Their requirements are also similar, the most important of which is the near-ideal weight of the patient. If their weight is far more than their ideal weight, neither of the treatment procedures would work. Both the procedures would require a slight healthy change in their diet and lifestyle for better results.

3. The Cost Factor

Cost is a very crucial factor in everything I guess. This is simply because fat-trimming procedures are really very expensive. That lightens your pocket to a great extent. There is not a single and straight figure for a treatment; it all depends from patient to patient, depending on their body and goals. Liposuction is performed in one go whereas CoolSculpting is done in various parts. You need to take multiple appointments so the cost depends on the number of sessions provided.

4. Sagging skin

CoolSculpting uses freezing technology to remove fats. This takes even months to do so and hence, skin doesn't sag that much. On the other hand, liposuction requires incisions and fat cells are extracted. This brings in the drastic change and that leads to skin sagging. That can also be cured by going for a surgical lifting procedure (like a tummy tuck or skin-lifting surgery). It all depends on your weight loss requirement and how quickly you are willing to shed those extra pounds.

The Final Words
Both the treatments come with respective pros and cons. It's up to you, your preference, and requirements as to which procedure shall be opted for. These should not be considered as the only and quickest method to reduce fats from the body. You shall first try changing your lifestyle and workouts. If it doesn't work, visit a doctor and consult them. Discuss with them everything and they would suggest you the best treatment.
