Coolsculpting as an Alternative

Do you have stubborn fat that just won’t go away? Maybe you work out all the time and have a healthy diet but there is still fat that just won’t go away. If this sounds like your situation, you might want to look into coolsculpting.

Coolsculpting is the more natural solution to getting rid of stubborn fat. Usually, coolsculpting is compared to liposuction, but a lot of people are finding that they prefer coolsculpting over any other kind of procedure.

Let’s take a look at what coolsculpting really is.

In a normal procedure there are sonic waves that are used to get rid of fat. Unfortunately, in the process of doing so they also burn and shatter non-fat cells making the recovery time a lot longer than it should be. Although some don’t get bothered by this, there is an alternative. Coolsculpting doesn’t damage, burn, or extract any other cells.

Coolsculpting is actually very new and it is being used by the most advanced plastic surgeons in the world. This entire procedure was developed by scientists from Harvard.

The Benefits

There are a handful of benefits of coolsculpting – here are some
  • There is no surgery required
  • There is no cutting required
  • Because there is no surgery or cutting, there is no general anesthesia required
  • No needles or injections
  • No need for a “recovery period”
  • FDA approved
  • Very effective method of reducing fat
This procedure is extremely effective and is a great alternative to liposuction. Liposuction can have many risks and adverse effects that one might not realize until post-surgery. With coolsculpting you will be in and out of the practice in one day and you won’t have to wait for any kind of recovery.

How Much Does It Cost?

A coolsculpting procedure can cost anywhere from $2500 - $8000 depending on a lot of various factors. Some of these factors include geographical location, surgeon, practice, time of year, and how much work you want/need. When compared to liposuction, coolsculpting is roughly the same cost or sometimes a little less. Again, this completely varies on a per-case basis.

How It Works

The first step of the coolsculpting process is to apply cooling to the skin of the fat. After this is done, the cooling is controlled and maintained for an extended period of time (time varies depending on patient) in order to damage the fat cells and get rid of them. The third part of this procedure is to wait. That’s right, wait. It might take several months for fat cells to fully be removed. Finally, “the natural removal of fat cells over time results in fat layer reduction”.

It’s important to note that this fat reduction is all about time and cooling, so the longer that you wait the more you will get from the procedure.

Is There Any Risk?

When compared to a procedure such as liposuction, no. There is very little risk to this procedure because it doesn’t require any kind of cutting. Other procedures are actual surgeries and may have risks associated with them.
