Even with weight loss, many people have areas on their body that seem unresponsive to diet and exercise. Fortunately, there are cosmetic procedures available to help you achieve your ideal figure. If you are unsure whether Coolsculpting is a better option, there are several reasons Coolsculpting might be the better choice.
Price Is A Concern
Although liposuction is not considered an invasive procedure, it is more invasive than Coolsculpting. Since Coolsculpting does not require any incisions or anesthesia, it is less expensive than tumescent liposuction. Due to the non-invasive nature of Coolsculpting, the procedure is often done in specialized clinics, instead of a hospital or outpatient surgical facility. Fat removal is purely a cosmetic procedure, which means the procedure will not be covered by insurance. Since you will need to pay for the costs out-of-pocket, Coolsculpting can be the more appealing option.
You Have Minor Stubborn Areas
Coolsculpting is ideal for people who have minor pockets of fat they want to eliminate. Typically, Coolsculpting is done to reduce the lower abdominal pouch, eliminate fat pockets under the buttocks, or reduce a double chin. Liposuction is better for more complex areas that would show little improvement with a less invasive technique. Generally, Coolsculpting might be better if your goal is subtle contouring that would improve how your clothes fit or make you feel more comfortable wearing certain clothes, such as a bikini. For people who expect significant reductions in the inches on their trouble areas or also have other concerns they want to fix, such as improving the shape of their buttocks with fat transfer, liposuction is necessary to achieve these dramatic results and for fat transfer.
Gradual Results Are Not A Problem
If you want instant gratification, liposuction would be the right choice. Even though you will instantly shed inches after having liposuction, the true results are unknown for weeks after procedure because of swelling and bruising. Coolsculpting is designed to be a gradual process since your body slowly eliminates the destroyed fat cells over months. Although the results are not quick, since it can take several months for you to see optimal results, you leave the office after your session with no down-time. In contrast, you may need to take time off work to have liposuction and compression garments are usually necessary to minimize swelling. Some people prefer gradual changes in their body so it is less obvious to others. The people around you might simply think you lost weight or toned up, rather than obviously having a cosmetic procedure.
When you want to eliminate areas of fat, you might have trouble deciding on the right cosmetic procedure. Coolsculpting frequently has clear advantages over liposuction for many people.
