I am trying to decide between coolsculpting and liposonix. Which one of them will give better results?
CoolSculpting may provide better long term results than Liposonix
The fact is that CoolScuplting freezing energy kills some of the adipocytes (fat cells) and results typically at four months after treatment with 20% reduction in volume. This seems to be a real result and one that is seen long term as the fat is not just liquified and shrinking the fat cells, but killing the fat cells. Liposonix, and other energy treatments might just reduce the volume temporarily as the fat might be liquified and then extracted from the fat cells. The true sequence of events of the fat cells is somewhat unknown in radiofrequency, laser and ultrasound energy treatments.

CoolSculpting Inch Loss
20-25% of fat in an area will be removed with a CoolSculpting treatment. So, if you had 1 inch of fat being treated, you would lose about 1/4 of an inch.
