The aesthetic industry is starting to develop various ways to remove excess fat without performing surgery, which has caught the eye of many consumers looking to avoid surgery. CoolSculpting in Cleveland is a great non-invasive alternative to more invasive techniques. However, liposuction can offer dramatic results. Read on to learn more about which technique is right for you.
What are the main differences between surgical and non-surgical methods?
Surgeons have concluded that techniques, like CoolSculpting, are effective but it is important to note the difference between traditional surgical fat removal (i.e. liposuction) and the new non-invasive methods. Traditional fat removal allows the surgeon to have more control over shaping and contouring while CoolSculpting allows you to remove fat. However, being an external procedure, it has a more difficult time controlling shape.
The manufacturers of the non-invasive machines are working to improve the capability to contour the body while simultaneously removing fat. Like all new technology, the applicators of these machines will continue to improve over time with more use. Of course, another thing to consider is the down time associated with surgical options. CoolSculpting is painless and allows you to go about your day immediately after with no down-time necessary.
Which option is best for me?
When considering a fat removal procedure, it is important to consider your current body composition and what your goal is. If you are looking to make a drastic weight change you may prefer to go with traditional liposuction. CoolSculpting is best for areas that have not responded to traditional diet and exercise. Paired with a healthy lifestyle, CoolSculpting can be that extra boost that helps you achieve your aesthetic goals.
While nothing can replace a healthy lifestyle, CoolSculpting may be the answer to those stubborn pockets of fat that aren’t responding to all your hard work in the gym.
