CoolSculpting is an effective treatment option for body fat reduction. This procedure is considered a non-surgical or non-invasive procedure as it uses controlled cooling technology in order to freeze fat cells underneath the skin so it can be easily removed. This procedure was initially designed for the removal of crucial fat pockets, helping patients lose fat in a non-surgical way, and to give a better shape to the treated area. This procedure requires a couple of sessions before results show.
On the other hand, liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that aims to remove excess body fat by sucking out the fat from stubborn areas that cannot be treated with healthy diet or exercising. The areas that are usually targeted by liposuction include hips, thighs, buttocks, and the abdomen. This procedure is the most common procedure in the field of cosmetic surgical treatments, done by men and women, in order to reduce fat in the treated area as well as giving it a better shape.
Both of these procedures are significantly effective in most cases, and they both cause common side effects. However, the procedure to be chosen relies completely on the doctor’s advice and the patient’s preferences. In the following we compare CoolSculpting vs liposuction in terms of the pros and cons.
