It all depends on your goals
Tumesent Liposuction vs CoolSculpting
Thank you for the question. They are two different modalities. CoolSculpting can get a 25% reduction. We have found it to be very effective for the love handles, abdomen, arms, thighs, neck, and other areas. We have found that treating the area twice usually improves the fat cell kill significantly. Other physicians I have spoken to have found similar findings. the fat cells die and are taken up by the normal cell disposal mechanisms of the body Liposuction is a surgical modality that is usually more dramatic, with a greater reduction. The fat cells are physically removed with liposuction. Again, the CoolSculpting is non invasive, no surgery, no downtime. As always, the modality should be appropriate to the individual patient. Best to see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, who can evaluate for all modalities.
Coolsculpting and fat reduction
Coolsculpting is a great non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Liposuction is for a larger area and of course is invasive with down time and much more involved procedure. With coolsculpting the fat in a given area gets reduced in the treated area by 20 to 25% such as in the abdomen, flanks, or thighs. Most patients in my NYC have returned for a second treatment because they have been so happy with the results. For the best cosmetic results please consult a board certified physician with experience with coolsculpting.
