When it comes to feeling frustrated with your appearance even after reaching your ideal target weight, the choice comes down to one of two body contouring options: liposuction or CoolSculpting®. Both treatments can directly target common problem spots like the love handles, and both are extremely popular and have proven track records.* But how can you know which one is right for you?
What’s Your Schedule Like?
Probably the first think to look at when debating between CoolSculpting® or liposuction is how much time and money you have to invest in your appearance goals. Not everyone can find a way to schedule in the oftentimes significant downtime that’s required after liposuction.* Compare that to CoolSculpting®, which is considered a quick outpatient procedure, and the choice might rapidly become clear.*
What Are Your Ideal Results?
CoolSculpting® is certainly effective and has helped many people achieve their ideal look.* However, that doesn’t mean the non-surgical body contouring treatment is right for everyone. Liposuction can address a larger target area as well as remove a larger volume of fat, but comes with the tradeoff of more downtime and a longer recovery period.*
Check with Your Plastic Surgeon
The easiest way to decide whether you should opt for liposuction or CoolSculpting® is to schedule a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon who offers both procedures at their practice. Your plastic surgeon can give you a complete physical evaluation to determine your candidacy before recommending one option over the other.
