CoolSculpting vs. Liposuction

CoolSculpting and liposuction are both used to reduce fat. Both of these methods permanently remove excess fat from targeted areas. However, there are several notable differences between these two body contouring services.

Unlike CoolSculpting, liposuction is a surgical procedure that is performed while you are under anesthesia. The process typically involves making an incision in the treatment area and removing excess fat through a suction tube. Liposuction also involves recovery time.

However, liposuction is a time-tested fat removal procedure and is still an excellent option for the right patient. Most patients only need one procedure to see results, compared to multiple CoolSculpting sessions. Liposuction is often capable of removing more fat than CoolSculpting.
