CoolSculpting and Liposuction: Which is Right For You?

When it comes to removing fat from the body, individuals have many different options to consider. Some promise fantastic results, but some of them are risky for a person’s health and wallet. For those trying to remove fat from specific parts of their body, like arms, thighs, or bellies, dieting does not work well. Diet and exercise make people lose weight, but the weight loss is not targeted to specific areas of the body. Therefore, many people who eat right, and are active, still have love handles or a muffin top. Two of the most commonly used weight loss procedures for people with fat in unwanted areas is Liposuction or Coolsculpting. Liposuction is a surgical treatment that takes out fat directly from the body. CoolSculpting is a method of freezing fat in the body so that the body can naturally process the excess fat.


CoolSculpting uses cold applicators to freeze away fat from the body. It is a relatively painless way to reshape your body. There is no need for surgery, hospital stays, or medication required with going for CoolSculpting. This procedure is ideal for candidates that are close to desired weights but need a little extra help.


Liposuction is an invasive medical process that requires a recuperation period. It is the quickest way to remove fat from the body, but that is because the process requires the body to be opened and for fat to be directly taken out. This method of weight loss is for those that have trouble keeping with a healthy diet and exercise regiment.
