CoolSculpting vs. Liposuction – Pros, Cons, and Which Is Right For You


While CoolSculpting and Liposuction both offer a way to get rid of stubborn fat, these two practices have some major differences in both their way of being conducted and in the results they offer. Before undergoing any kind of procedure, it’s important that you understand how the treatment works and perhaps even consider alternatives.


Continue reading below to learn more about CoolSculpting and Liposuction to determine which is right for you!



We already know that the main similarity between CoolSculpting and Liposuction is that they both can get rid of unwanted fat. This being said, let’s talk about the three main differences between the two treatments :



Treatment Area 

The first difference between CoolSculpting and Liposuction, is the kind of treatment areas each procedure works best on.


CoolSculpting : CoolSculpting works best on targeted areas of pinchable fat. If you have a few specific areas in mind for fat reduction, CoolSculpting can help.


Liposuction : Liposuction is for more broad fat reduction throughout a larger portion of the body.




Surgery and Downtime

The second difference between CoolSculpting and Liposuction involves the invasiveness of the procedure and how long you can expect to recover for.


CoolSculpting : CoolSculpting is completely noninvasive and requires no surgery.  There is also no downtime, meaning after your CoolSculpting treatment you can hop right back into the swing of things.


Liposuction : Liposuction is a surgical procedure that is preformed with anesthesia. In order to properly recover from Liposuction you’ll probably need to take 3 – 7 days off from work or any other physically straining activities.





The third difference we’ll address, is that while CoolSculpting and Liposuction can both provide results, the amount of time between procedure and actual noticeable results can vary.


CoolSculpting : Because CoolSculpting is a noninvasive procedure and relies on the use of Cryolipolysis to kill fat cells, you’ll notice results once your body has started to naturally remove these dead fat cells. This process normally takes the body between 1 – 3 months.


Liposuction : Because Liposuction is a more aggressive treatment, results are generally noticeable after any swelling from surgery has gone down.

    Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
