CoolSculpting® vs. SmartLipo™

For patients in Charleston, SC who are at or close to their ideal weight and truly looking to just fine tune and sculpt stubborn areas, Port City Plastic Surgery’s CoolSculpting® and SmartLipo™ are excellent choices. Which one is best truly depends on the patient, and what Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Brian G. Widenhouse recommends to help them achieve their desired result.

Plastic Surgery in Charleston, SCFor many of our patients who prefer a non-surgical, non-invasive option and don’t mind waiting to see results, CoolSculpting is an excellent choice. CoolSculpting is most effective for treating larger fat deposits, such as those on the abdomen, including “muffin top” and “love handles.” After one CoolSculpting procedure, most patients see a noticeable reduction of fat from the area and over the following two to three months, patients fully realize the effects of the procedure as their body naturally sheds dead fat cells.

Some patients who want to lose fat are not candidates for surgery. Others want the faster results that SmartLipo and traditional liposuction offer. At Port City Plastic Surgery, we are pleased to offer all of these procedures to patients, and to work with them to create a customized plan to help them achieve their desired result.
