Which Is Better Liposuction or Coolsculpting?

Body Care, Fat Reduction Procedure, Surgical

When it comes to toning your body and targeting stubborn pockets of the fat, modern cosmetic surgery presents a range of options. There are non-surgical, fat freezing solutions such as Coolsculpting, and the very popular minimally invasive process of liposuction.

But which do you choose? If you are looking to combat annoying fat that is unresponsive to exercise and diet, treatment with Chelsea Cosmetics Melbourne provides a range of options. Let’s dive into your choices.

What Does the Coolsculpting Option Offer?

The process of Coolsculpting is non-invasive and perfect for stubborn bulges, double chins, and love handles. It is known as ‘fat freezing’ which uses cold treatment to target any areas of unwanted fat, sculpting the body to the look you desire.

Appropriate for those who have experienced weight loss, it is essential to note that results are not instant. You will see the desired changes in four to six weeks, and around 20-25% of the area you are treating will have affected and reduced fat cells.

What Does the Liposuction Option Offer?

You have likely heard of liposuction, which is a popular procedure for targeting areas of fat that seem to be resistant to healthy lifestyle changes. This procedure should be looked at as a way to support healthy weight loss. It assists the body by reducing fat content in specific areas.

Liposuction means downtime of roughly one to two weeks, and you will be unable to drive yourself home, requiring a family member or friend to assist after surgery.

Liposuction, like Coolsculpting, can help to target areas of stubborn fat and should not be relied on as a weight loss technique. The reason many opt for liposuction is the realisation of faster results when compared to non-invasive methods.

The most common areas targeted by the liposuction technique include:

Disclaimer: Losing weight through natural methods and regular exercise offers more health benefits compared to liposuction. We strongly encourage patients to pursue their goals using natural and healthy approaches before contemplating liposuction. It’s important to note that liposuction is not a method for weight loss; while it may result in a reduction in dress or pants sizes, the scale may not reflect a significant difference.

Also, before deciding on any treatment, it’s important to have realistic expectations about the outcome. Talk to your practitioner about what to expect from the treatment and make sure you understand your recovery time and the likely results.
