Which Fat Loss Procedure is Right for You?

blog-post

Liposuction in Charleston, SCWith so many different fat loss procedures available, it can be tough to narrow your decision down to the one that’s right for you. Some people may not be aware that CoolSculpting and Liposuction are different procedures, and could end up picking the wrong one. That’s why it’s important to think about the specific benefits and qualifications for each.

Benefits
Both CoolSculpting and Liposuction have different benefits. To determine which procedure you’re interested in, the benefits of each should be looked at closely. One of the largest benefits to CoolSculpting, for example, is that it is non-invasive. The procedure leaves you with no scars, and is done without the use of needles, incisions, and suction hoses. This process only targets fat cells in your body, leaving all of your other skin cells perfectly healthy. There is no downtime after the procedure, and any pain caused will subdue within a couple days. Additionally, this treatment continues to work over the following months as the body naturally sheds fat cells. Liposuction, on the other hand, is a flexible treatment option with immediate effects and similarly long-lasting results. Liposuction can be used to safely target nearly every area of the body. Both of these procedures offer solutions for fat loss in areas that no amount of diet and exercise can overcome.

Qualifications
Depending on the challenges you face and your goals for the procedure, you may need to choose one over the other. If you can grab a handful of fat, CoolSculpting may be the treatment for you, as it is an effective way to target these areas. However, if you can only pinch an inch or so of fat and the skin is tight, traditional liposuction or other alternatives may be the best option. If you are in good health and maintain a healthy weight, liposuction is an excellent process that can successfully target isolated areas of fat where CoolSculpting may not be applicable.
