CoolSculpting and liposuction are both great body contouring methods that can help you achieve the look that diet and exercise couldn't give you. They each have something different to offer though. CoolSculpting is great for those looking to reduce small areas of stubborn fat, while liposuction can surgically remove larger fatty areas. The best way to know which one is right for you is by meeting with our board-certified plastic surgeon in Maryland.
Body contouring can help you reach your aesthetic goals and give you the body you've been working towards for months or years. Pregnancy and aging can cause your stomach and other parts of your body to develop fat pockets that just don't want to go away. CoolSculpting and liposuction can get rid of that fat, but they each have unique advantages including:
Advantages of CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting works by using cryolipolysis technology to freeze and kill fat cells. These dead cells are then naturally eliminated from your body over the course of three weeks to two months via your lymphatic system. This FDA-approved procedure is non-invasive which means there is no incision or surgery required to rid you of your love handles and other common areas that develop excess fat. You don't need to set aside time for recovery as you can go back to your daily activities immediately after your session.
If you have reached your ideal weight, but still have fatty areas that won't recede, then CoolSculpting might be perfect for you.
Advantages of Liposuction
Liposuction has been used to surgically remove fat for decades. This body contouring process suctions out fat cells from your abdomen, arms, flanks and other areas where fat seems to collect. Liposuction can remove larger deposits on several parts of your body at once and gives you immediate results. Although there is some downtime required for your body to recover and adjust to your new figure, this surgery often gives you great results and helps you reach your weight loss goal quickly.
