How to Decide Between CoolSculpting and Liposuction

Do you stick to a healthy diet and a regular exercise routine, yet still struggle with stubborn areas of fat that won’t disappear? Coolsculpting is a minimally invasive and non-surgical way to tackle such concerns and greatly enhance your body contours to give you the shape you’ve always desired.

CoolSculpting is gaining popularity as a non-surgical way to get rid of unwanted, excess fat from certain areas of the body, including the hips, thighs, and abdomen. If you are looking for a minimally invasive, non-surgical method to give you the toned appearance you’ve always wanted, then CoolSculpting could be a great solution for you. 

You may be an ideal candidate for this treatment if you are: 

  • In good health 
  • Close to your target weight 
  • Looking for reduction of specific areas of fat 
  • Not pregnant or thinking about pregnancy 
  • Uninterested in surgical body contouring procedures, such as liposuction

CoolSculpting vs Liposuction: How Do I Decide Which is Right for Me? 

A common question people have deals specifically with the difference between CoolSculpting and liposuction. During an in-depth consultation, our skin specialists can assess your aesthetic goals, health, lifestyle, and needs, to help determine which body contouring procedure is right for you. 

However, here is a small guide to help you get started if you are wondering whether CoolSculpting or liposuction is right for you: 

1. Would You Prefer a Surgical or Non-Surgical Treatment? 

CoolSculpting is a non-surgical procedure that can permanently eliminate fat without a single incision. It works through a mechanism called fat freezing, which uses low temperatures to freeze fat, but not the surrounding tissues. These fat cells are then naturally flushed by the body. 

Liposuction is a surgical technique and during the procedure, a small incision will be made to insert a cannula. The fat will then be removed using suction. Because it is a surgical procedure, liposuction will require some downtime for healing. 



2. When Do You Want to See Results? 

Liposuction is a surgical treatment which will require some downtime in order for you to fully heal. As your swelling reduces, the new body contours will begin to appear after a few weeks. Typically, the final results will be seen in three months. 

With CoolSculpting, you will have to undergo a few sessions to see the full effect of your results. After the first treatment, improvements will appear as soon as three weeks after. The most remarkable CoolSculpting results often appear two months after your full treatment session. 



3. Do You Want to Eliminate Fat in One Take or Several Sessions? 

With liposuction, any unwanted body fat can be instantly eliminated in one treatment. However, because this is a surgical approach, there is a recovery and healing process. 

On the other hand, CoolSculpting is a comfortable treatment that doesn’t require any downtime. However, in some cases, one treatment won’t result in enough fat elimination, and patients may require multiple treatments to get the figure they desire. 

4. What Are Your Concerns? 

When deciding between these two treatments, it’s important to think about your concerns and goals. Here are a few things you should know about liposuction vs CoolSculpting: 

  • Pinchable bulges (e.g. muffin tops) do great with Coolsculptng but overall thickness or large volume (e.g. larger abdomens) may be better resolved with liposuction. 

  • CoolSculpting works great for contouring one to two areas of excessive fat, while liposuction may provide more value for those wanting substantial slimming in several areas of the body. 

If you are looking for a body contouring procedure to give you the shape you desire, it is always best to book a consultation with an expert to ensure you make the right choice.
