CoolSculpting vs. Liposuction Part 2

In our last blog, we explored the general differences between liposuction and CoolSculpting®. Depending on your situation and goals, one or the other will be better for you. At Front Range Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, we pride ourselves on getting to know our clients and giving them the unique treatment they need. In this blog, we will explore some of the advantages and disadvantages of liposuction and CoolSculpting.

Liposuction may be the solution for you if you need the following:

  1. Aggressive fat reduction

  2. Immediate results

  3. Simultaneous surgical procedures

  4. More contouring

If you are considering liposuction, be aware of the following:

  1. All surgeries have risk

  2. You may have some surface irregularities

  3. You will need a few days of downtime and activity restrictions for up to six weeks

CoolSculpting is for you if you need the following:

  1. A convenient, noninvasive solution

  2. A lower price

  3. To avoid surgery

  4. Minimal to nonexistent recovery time.

When going into CoolSculpting, be aware of the following:

  1. You are limited by the fit of the applicator

  2. Treatable bulges have to fit in the cup

  3. Results will be less dramatic than liposuction

  4. You may have some surface irregularities
