CoolSculpting Vs. Liposuction

It can be hard to lose weight, especially that stubborn fat around your middle section or upper thighs. If it seems like no matter how many calories you are cutting and no matter how many days you workout a week, you still can’t get rid of that stubborn fat, it’s time to take matters into your own hands— or into the hands of Fix Laser & Skin Center— in order to get rid of that stubborn fat once and for all. As two common treatments available on the plastic surgery market, both CoolSculpting and liposuction have benefits. Read on to learn more.

CoolSculpting as a liposuction alternative!

CoolSculptingOne of the best parts about CoolSculpting is that it’s a non-invasive procedure that requires no downtime at all. Meaning that if you’re a busy mom or career lady who doesn’t have time to sit in bed and recover for a week or two, then this is the right procedure for you. By literally freezing your fat away, CoolSculpting works to target your fat cells and give you back the body you once had or have always desired. Once your fat cells are frozen, they will then slough off after a few months— exposing your slimmer self.


Although liposuction is an invasive procedure that does require an ample amount of recovery time, it also gives patients almost instantaneous results. By making small incisions throughout your body, the plastic surgeon will then go under your skin with a camera device in order to fully assess your fat cells and skin. During this time, the surgeon will then scrape away any excess fat that has built up and will suction it away with a vacuum like tool. Once you are stitched up and out of recovery, you will be safe to go home. However, you will want to rest in bed for at least a few days as your body recovers from surgery and reheals itself.

In addition to exercise and a healthy diet, both liposuction and CoolSculpting are great procedures to help rid patients of stubborn fat. If you are interested in learning more about these procedures or if you’d like to schedule an appointment, contact Fix Laser & Skin Center today!
