How To Choose Between Liposuction And CoolSculpting

Are you having a difficult time getting rid of fat from those problem areas even though you consistently find yourself eating healthy and working out on a regular basis? Most of us find that no matter what they try and how much they try it there’s just no way of getting rid of that stubborn fat. Most of the time, a cosmetic intervention is required. Let’s take a look at today’s best surgical and non-surgical body contouring treatments available.

LIPOSUCTION

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes fat through a hollow tube with the help of an aspirator to contour the body. The procedure starts with a significant amount of a dilute local anaesthetic being injected into the area. Then, a cannula, (a thin, small metal tube) is inserted through a small incision placed in a concealed location on the skin. Using a high-pressurised vacuum, the fat cells are removed through the suction tube, sculpting bulges into more attractive contours.

Advantages of Liposuction

  • Instant results
  • Capability to eliminate large “pockets” of fat
  • Dramatic results
  • Aggressive fat reduction
  • Can be administered with other surgical procedures

Disadvantages of Liposuction

  • Longer recovery time
  • Potential surgical risks
  • Possible skin irregularities after surgery

COOLSCULPTING

CoolSculpting is an innovative non-invasive body contouring treatment that uses cooling technology to get rid of stubborn fat cells through the destruction of fat cells through freezing. A non-invasive applicator is placed on the skin to accurately freeze the targeted fat cells. After the treatment, fat cells are gradually eliminated from the body through normal metabolic processes. This reduces visible fat bulges in just three weeks time. For more information on this innovative fat reducing procedure visit Dr Saras & Co clinics; they provide innovative, non-invasive CoolSculpting treatments at their clinics in Double Bay, Annandale and Miranda.

Advantages of CoolSculpting

  • Perfect on small bulges of fat
  • Zero downtime
  • Non-surgical
  • Non-invasive
  • Minimal risks

Disadvantages of CoolSculpting

Multiple treatment sessions are required

Results are less dramatic than surgical liposuction

Treatment only works on pinchable fat

COSTS

Cost is often a factor to consider for patients. The cost of either procedure can differ from patient to patient based on their individualised desired outcome and body characteristics. CoolSculpting often requires several individual treatment sessions to reach desired results for some patient, so keep that in mind when asking your provider about the cost.

SAGGING SKIN ISSUES

Both Liposuction and CoolSculpting are often unable to correct issues that stem from loose skin or muscles accurately. Individuals with loose muscles or skin issues may need laser treatment or a surgical lift procedure to address this type of problem.
