Liposuction Vs. Coolsculpting | The Top 2 Fat Reduction Treatments

Liposuction and CoolSculpting are the two most popular fat reduction treatments in the United States. Both body contouring options target stubborn bulges that resist diet and exercise. Both treatments effectively eliminate fat cells for a slimmer, more sculpted physique. However, there are fundamental differences between these two options that are important to know when choosing between liposuction and CoolSculpting. Read on to part I to learn how both procedures work. In part II, learn the pros and cons of each and discover which fat reduction treatment is best for you.

The Liposuction Procedure

Liposuction is the most popular fat reduction treatment and the second most popular cosmetic surgery after breast augmentation. It involves manually removing fat cells using a sharp, hollow tube called a cannula. While the patient is under general anesthesia, the surgeon makes a small incision to insert the cannula through the skin into the fatty layer. The surgeon then forcefully stabs the fat cells to break them apart. Once broken up, the fat cells are suctioned out of the body through the cannula. The incision is stitched up and covered with steri-strips (thin band-aids.) The treatment area is then wrapped with some type of compression garment. This may include an ace wrap or an abdominal binder, depending on the area of the body that received the treatment.

The Coolsculpting Treatment

CoolSculpting is the world’s most popular non-surgical fat reduction treatment. Also known as fat freezing or cold sculpting, CoolSculpting eliminates stubborn fat cells via a process known as cryolipolysis. Broken down cryolipolysis means cold-induced fat cell death.

During a CoolSculpting treatment, a stubborn bulge is subjected to precisely controlled cooling. The cooling safely penetrates the skin and chills the underlying fat cells. Once chilled the membranes of the fat cells rupture. These fat cells can no longer store fat and are useless to the body. In response, the lymphatic system gathers the destroyed fat cells and removes them from the body in the form of waste.
