Coolscupting versus Lipsuction
The decision to have coolsculpting versus liposuction is based both on the patient's ability to have down time and recovery and also the amount of change and the area of the body you want shaped. There are many areas that you cannot do with coolsculpting. However, if you want a bulge reduced in a given area by 25% with only one hour and no down time then coolsculpting is really the best option for you.
Coolsculpting versus Liposuction
If you can manage the recovery process, I would agree with your plastic surgeon that surgery would provide you with a stronger result.
CoolSculpting, Smart Lipo, traditional Liposuction or other alternatives for body contouring
Smart Lipo is a limited technique which uses a laser at the end of a 1 mm fiber optic cable to heat and destroy fat cells. In most cases, a liposuction cannula will be required to further remove the fat cells in a "spot" or contoured technique. The procedure is invasive and very physician dependent on his or her skills and talents. Currently, there is little if any commercial marketing on this device or technique.
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, but also limited technique. It is "tried and true" and can work very well when properly performed. Used serially, you can achieve a "Treatment to Transformation" liposuction-like result.
It is a bit unfair to compare a surgical and non-surgical technique; particularly when it is dependent on a proper exam and recommendations.
Thanks for sharing your photos. Based on the very limited information provided, your best investment maybe traditional liposuction.
Please consult with a well experienced, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to offer what is best for YOU!
All the best!
