Both men and women alike suffer from targeted fat areas where they just can’t seem to get rid of unwanted fat. Whether it be on your stomach, upper thighs, or even on your arms, sometimes it can seem like no matter how many sessions of working out with a personal trainer that you perform, you will still never get the results that you desire. Because millions of people suffer from these unwanted fat areas but just can’t seem to get rid of them, there are two different solutions available to help target them: liposuction and coolsculpting. So what’s the difference between these two procedures? Read on to learn more.
Liposuction is a fat removal treatment that has been around for years and is used to target specific problem areas in which you just can’t seem to get rid of your fat. During this procedure, you will be under anesthesia. The surgeon will make an incision in order to reach the target area. After which, the doctor will insert a camera under the skin to help them properly analyze every step of the procedure. Once the camera has been placed, the doctor will then begin scraping away the fat that they see and will then suction it out with a small vacuum device. Once all of the excess fat has been removed, your doctor will then stitch you up and you will be sent off to recovery. Recovery time for liposuction is around 2-3 weeks and will require that you give your body an ample amount of rest in order to fully heal from the procedure.
Coolsculpting is an FDA approved non-invasive procedure that is designed to melt stubborn fat away. During the Coolsculpting procedure, your doctor will use the Coolsculpting device which is designed to target excess fat, freeze it, and cause it to melt away— leaving you with a skinnier looking appearance. Plus due to its non-invasive nature, Coolsculpting requires no recovery or downtime which means that you can get back to your normal routine in no time.
Whether you choose to go with liposuction or Coolsculpting, both of these procedures are proven to be effective and to deliver on their promised results.
