CoolSculpting vs. Liposuction – Are Results The Same?



According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, in short the answer is yes. But it has much to do with the expertise and ability of the practitioner to set up a proper and careful treatment plan. CoolSculpting freezes the fat that is beneath the skin, while not causing any damage or lasting discomfort to any of the tissues surrounding the fat cells. It is non-invasive and requires very little preparation or recovery. It’s something you can do on a lunch break or after work, while you rest and read or nap.


The CoolSculpting device has many different attachments that will target different areas of your body. It can only work on soft fat that is under your skin, that you can grab and pinch, because it gently pulls the fatty section into the device and then applies exactly the right temperature that freezes only fat. The dead fat cells are then transported away, and there is no danger of fat getting into the bloodstream.


With a good solid treatment plan, to decide the proper placement of the applicators, and the correct number of treatment cycles, the results will be as good as liposuction. The sessions are usually less than an hour and there is no anesthesia necessary. Dr. Fiorillo’s Medspa has two CoolSculpting machines, so you can get your fat frozen in half the time.
