Liposuction vs CoolSculptingPLUS VFORM
|How it works:
|Liposuction is a surgical procedure in which the surgeon makes incisions in the skin and vacuums excess fat deposits from under the skin.||CoolSculpting is FDA approved for fat reduction using a non-invasive cooling technique called Cryolipolysis to target and freeze localized fat.|
|Who makes a good candidate:
|Someone in good health with disproportionate contours due to fat deposits that won’t respond to diet and exercise.||Someone who has areas of stubborn fat pockets such as belly bulges, love handles, leg fat, arm fat or back fat that won’t budge with diet and exercise.|
|Improves body contour and shape.||Non-invasive procedure with minimum discomfort, no anesthesia, no needles and minimal downtime.|
|Risks:||Liposuction is a surgical procedure, therefore, there are risks involved. These include risks of the anesthesia, pain, bruising, swelling, blood clots and scarring.||There can be mild cramping after the procedure that can last 7-14 days. Bruising is not common. The skin is not cut so there is no scarring.|
|Swelling and some bruising is expected after surgery. A compression garment is usually worn following the procedure to control swelling. The recovery time depends on the extent of your surgery.||Get back to work or go for a run after treatment.
The treated area may be numb or sensitive to touch directly after procedure but nothing to restrict your normal life activity.
|Improvement in body shape and contour. It may take a several months before the swelling subsides to notice the final outcome.
The results from Liposuction will last as long as you continue to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
|CoolSculpting will eliminate 20-25% of the fat cells in the treated areas permanently. Noticeable, natural results of fat reduction in just 6 to 8 weeks. Areas can be re-treated if more results are desired since there is no scarring. Results are not guaranteed and vary from patient to patient.|
|What it won’t do:
|Liposuction is not a treatment for obesity, nor will it take place of proper diet and exercise.
It also will not treat cellulite or loose, saggy skin.
