What’s the Difference between CoolSculpting and Liposuction?

Sometimes, no matter how much sweat while exercising or how much we diet, those love handles just won’t go away. In the past, many opted for Liposuction to get rid of them and give themselves a better and more appealing figure.

Now, there is an alternative to Liposuction called CoolSculpting and is proving to be equally, if not more effective than Lipo.

The two obviously do the same thing, remove fat, but they are, in fact, quite different. Here are the main differences between Liposuction and CoolSculpting:

Liposuction

Liposuction does exactly what it promises and gets rid of unwanted fat. For that much, we can’t fault this method. However, the problem lies in the fact that it is invasive and requires going under the knife and drawing out excess adipose tissue using a vacuum-like device.

Another problem with Liposuction is that it, like most surgical procedures, requires considerable down time. Usually, doctors recommend at least 3 days to a week for their patients to recuperate following a Liposuction treatment. Sometimes, the downtime needed can be as much as 2 weeks, which is obviously not always convenient.

That being, Liposuction does produce a slimmer figure and you will experience a break from excess weight for a good period of time.

CoolSculpting

An alternative and a very effective one at that, to Liposuction, CoolSculpting, is a non-invasive way to get rid of fat in certain areas such as, the inner/outer thighs, back and muffin tops.

Instead of cutting your skin and sucking fat with a vacuum, CoolSculpting utilizes targeted cold temperature treatments to reduce fat deposits in the body.

The result is the same as with Lipo, and your body will also become slimier and better shaped.

Where CoolSculpting clearly has Liposuction beat is that it leaves no “mark” on the skin. There are no scars, not even a needle prick to show you had a CoolSculpting treatment.

And if that’s not enough, CoolSculpting also requires no recovery time. You can literally have a treatment and then go about your daily business, just slimmer than when you first walked into Dr. Jacob’s office.
