Since CoolSculpting has been available on the market, there have been comparisons between CoolSculpting and liposuction when it comes to fat reduction. Both methods are widely used in the market, and both are considered to be safe and effective in taking away fat on targeted areas.
The significant difference that everyone could notice between the two methods is the time they have been available for medical use and of course, the process that occurs when reducing fat.
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure that freezes fat cells in a body using a CoolSculpting machine while liposuction is s surgical method of sucking fat away from the body by inserting a cannula under the skin.
In terms of side effects, CoolSculpting has fewer and minor side effects compared to liposuction. Skin sensitivity and bruising that may last a few weeks is the main side effect of CoolSculpting while negative reactions to anesthesia, blood clots, and other serious complications are known to be side effects of liposuction.
In terms of convenience, a CoolSculpting session lasts for an hour and needs several sessions to have a full effect while liposuction sessions take one to two hours and usually requires one session only. However, CoolSculpting has no recovery time, and the effects can be seen after a few weeks while liposuction patients need a few days of recovery time and a few months to see the full results.
In terms of efficiency, both methods permanently remove fats in the targeted area. CoolSculpting removes 25% of stubborn fat in the body while liposuction cannot remove fat more than 11 pounds.
With the results of the comparison, we can say that CoolSculpting procedures are safer and less painful than its counterpart.
