How CoolSculpting Stacks Up Against Other Fat Removal Procedures

If you have started feeling frustrated by unwanted fat on parts of your body, you aren’t alone! Most people who embark on a weight loss journey experience the dreaded “plateau.” This even happens to “skinny” people who spend hours exercising and watching every bite they eat, only to hit a wall where you can’t move past a certain weight or shift stubborn fat from certain parts of the body. This is why our clients love CoolSculpting, the world’s leading procedure for non-surgical fat reduction.

What Is CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is an FDA approved procedure that targets unwanted bulge by freezing fat cells in nine different specified areas. Through the procedure, these cells then die and are eliminated naturally. A single treatment can destroy 20-24% of fat cells in the designated area, including the abdomen, love handles, “back fat,” upper arms, and thighs.

CoolSculpting vs. Liposuction

CoolSculpting and liposuction are both used to reduce fat by permanently removing it from targeted areas of the body. Prior to CoolSculpting, liposuction was the most widely used fat removal process. However, since CoolScupting is non-invasive, with little to no downtime, it’s become the procedure of choice for most people and is now considered the #1 non-surgical option. Liposuction may still be the better fit for people looking to see a dramatic change in body contour or to remove excess fat over larger areas of the body.
For people who want to treat focal pockets of fat, i.e. the stubborn fat that just won’t budge, CoolSculpting is ideal. Our patients notice immediate, natural-looking results that continue to improve for up to three months after the procedure. As these results happen more gradually than liposuction, many people won’t even know why you look like you are losing weight unless you tell them.

If you’re tired of losing confidence due to unwanted fat that no amount of diet and exercise seem to change, CoolScupting can help. There’s no pain, no discomfort, no downtime and no loose skin after the procedure. Instead, you can start to embrace a more confident, happier you!
