Sometimes, no matter how healthy our diet is or how fastidiously we exercise, there are stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to our best efforts. This excess fat can make us feel self-conscious. Here at Persona Medical Spa, we believe everyone should feel confident in their own skin. We specialize in several methods of body contouring to help you feel happy, healthy, and confident. You are warmly invited to learn about the critical differences between CoolSculpting® and liposuction.
What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is an FDA-approved fat removal treatment that is ideal for reducing the volume of fat in one or two problem areas. For example, if you are fairly happy with the size of your body, but you want to contour your abdomen, this may be the ideal treatment method for you. Some people prefer this method because it is fast, affordable, and involves no set downtime. This treatment is best-suited for people who have trouble spots in places where the applicator can be used, such as:
If you have a large volume of fat you want to reduce, liposuction may be the ideal solution for you. However, it all depends on the unique situation. Some people opt for CoolSculpting® to contour part of their body before they get liposuction. This allows them to make significant visible progress towards their body image goals. Other people find this treatment ideal because they are so close to their body goals that liposuction is not necessary.
What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a fat removal procedure that is more effective if you want to lose a larger amount of fat. For example, if you have a larger volume of fat on your lower abdomen, liposuction may be right for you. You will also achieve much more dramatic results sooner. Liposuction is best-suited for people who can take the needed time off from work and daily duties. However, fat removal is precise and the results of your body contouring will be predictable. Just like CoolSculpting®, this is a body contouring treatment and not a weight loss procedure.
