Liposuction vs. Fat Freezing (CoolSculpting®) in Orlando

With the advancements in technology, there has been a rise in treatment options for unwanted fat. Some of these options require surgery, and others are non-invasive or minimally invasive. 

Over the years, traditional surgical liposuction has remained the number one surgical method for fat reduction and body contouring. Liposuction involves placing an individual under general anesthesia in the operating room and using a suction device to remove pockets of unwanted fat from almost any area of the body. Although liposuction offers an excellent option of getting rid of stubborn fat, not everyone would like to undergo that invasive of a procedure.

What is CoolSculpting®?

The number one non-invasive technique for fat reduction and body contouring is CoolSculpting®. CoolSculpting® can be performed in the office and requires no downtime, no anesthesia, no incisions, and no physical restrictions following the procedure. It is a special machine that is connected to an applicator, which attaches to the treatment site. The applicator has a suction device, which is cooled to a controlled temperature when in contact with the skin. This will cause programmed cell death of any fat cells it comes in contact with. Once the fat cells are destroyed, they are permanently removed from the body via the lymphatic system. Final results will be evident 1-3 months following treatment. 

The most common areas of the body to treat with CoolSculpting® are double chins, bra rolls, abdomen, love handles, flanks, upper and/or lower back, inner and/or outer thighs, banana rolls, and almost any other pocket of fat on the body. 

Ideal candidates for CoolSculpting® are those who maintain a healthy body weight with diet and exercise, yet cannot get rid of stubborn pockets of fat.
