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 :
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.
