CS vs smart lipo
Coolsculpting vs. liposuction
Liposuction, whether Smart Lipo or traditional, can have great results in the area as long as your skin does not have widespread stretch marks. If your skin is of good quality, skin tightening after liposuction will happen regardless of whether it is traditional or Smart Lipo.

Coolsculpting for fat bulge
Coolsculpting in the hands of a skilled dermatologist could get rid of those bulges. It would be completely noninvasive and painless. Best, Dr. Green
Residual fat on upper abdopmen after liposuction years ago--Coolsculpting or Smartlipo?
Smartlipo incisions are smaller than most mole removal scars, and are very inconspicuous, especially if location is chosen carefully.
Coolsculpting is non-invasive, but will likely yield more subtle results and require more than one treatment, though that is also possible with Smartlipo.
You are not talking about lots of fat removal, nor are you likely to have "saggy skin" with traditional lipo either--looks like this surgeon is trying to steer you towards Smartlipo, where the degree of actual skin tightening is minimal as well. Traditional lipo relies on the elasticity of your skin to retract, not on the thermal tightening of the Smartlipo laser on the underside of the dermis. Done poorly, Smartlipo can cause burns or retracted scarring, so there are pros and cons to all of these options.
Hence, the return to my original advice: this is more about choice of surgeon than choice of machine or modality. So choose carefully and ask about multiple steps, as well as what the redo or touch-up policy and costs are. Best wishes! Dr. Tholen
