Liposuction is a surgical procedure. That means it requires anesthesia, several incisions, and recovery time. The Cool Sculpting procedure is totally non-invasive. There are no needles, no incisions, and no downtime involved with Cool Sculpting. Since liposuction involves surgery, there are also risks and complications involved. Infection of the incision sites and fluid buildup can contribute to less than desirable results with liposuction. On the other hand, Cool Sculpting is safe and low risk. Some people may experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, numbness or discomfort in the treated area, but this is temporary and will resolves completely on its own. Since there is no downtime associated with Cool Sculpting, you can resume your normal activities immediately after your treatment.
Benefits of liposuction compared to Cool Sculpting are that liposuction can be used to treat larger and hard to reach areas. During liposuction a suction tube (cannula) is inserted through small incisions in the skin, and fat cells are then sucked out through the tube. This process can sometimes lead to uneven results, causing unsightly “bumps” and “dents” in the treated areas. Cool Sculpting uses a unique applicator that is applied to the area of fat being treated. Once applied, the Cool Sculpting device then freezes the fat inside the applicator. Once the fat cells are frozen, they are dissolved and removed naturally by your body over the course of time. Results can be seen in as little as three weeks, and will continue to happen for six months until all of the fat cells are permanently removed. The beauty of the Cool Sculpting applicator is that it provides a smooth and even reduction of fat without the bumps that can be seen with liposuction.
