Liposuction vs. CoolSculpting in Charlotte -- Which Is Right for You?

Sarah Yousuff

You could diet your way down to the perfect dress size, but you'd still find fat collecting in unflattering places. If counting calories and hitting the gym isn’t getting you the contoured appearance you’re after, you may be a good candidate for CoolSculpting or liposuction.

When deciding which treatment is right for you, it’s important to consider your body type, aesthetic goals, and the recovery process. Liposuction offers fast results and can remove more fat than CoolSculpting, but it is an invasive procedure. You may need to take a few days or weeks off work to recover.

Unlike liposuction, CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure that requires no incisions, so you won’t have to worry about scarring. The process involves freezing fat cells so your body can expel them naturally over a period of months. Although the results take time to show, some patients can resume normal activities immediately after treatment.

Read on for a brief overview of the CoolSculpting procedure:

What can I expect during CoolSculpting?

During your CoolSculpting session, you will sit in a chair while a technician attaches multiple suction cups to the target area. The cups grab onto the fold of skin underneath and begin to freeze the fatty tissue.

According to Zeltiq, the company behind the technology, the surface skin does not freeze. You can read, listen to music, or even take a nap as the suction cups target stubborn pockets of fat.

When will I see the CoolSculpting results?

Patients will notice gradual results, which begin to show after four to six weeks. However, it may take up to six months to see the final outcome. This is because it takes time for your body to identify and expel the destroyed fat cells.

Are the results permanent?

Yes. Once your body expels the fat cells, they are gone for good. However, it is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise after the treatment. Although the cells will not grow back, other fat cells that are still in your body can expand.

Are there risks involved in CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is one of the safest fat-reduction procedures available. There are no incisions, which reduces the likelihood of infections and other complications.

You may notice mild, temporary bruising to the treatment site. This should fade within a few days after treatment. Most patients can resume their normal activities immediately after a CoolSculpting session.
