Differences Between Tummy Tuck, Liposuction And CoolSculpting

Posted on August 27th, 2015 by Dr. Bryan Rubach

If you have decided to remove unwanted fat from a certain area of the body, you likely want to learn about all the options available to you. When researching which treatment option is best for you, there are three things to consider before making a decision.

Your Body

Your own body is going to be a large part of the deciding factor when considering a body contouring procedure. All bodies are different, and therefore different treatments are best for different people. Your friend may have found that a tummy tuck removed their unwanted stomach fat, but you may need liposuction. Each procedure treats a different issue though none of them should be used for weight-loss goals.

If you have already lost weight and want to contour the body and remove unwanted skin, a tummy tuck could be the way to go. If you are at an average body weight and still have stubborn areas of fat, liposuction or another fat-removing procedure might be better. Your cosmetic surgeon can give more insight as to which procedure would work best for your needs.

Your Budget

The next thing you’ll want to consider is your budget. If you don’t have thousands of dollars to spend, then liposuction or a tummy tuck may not be a suitable choice as they tend to be more expensive. CoolSculpting procedures, while requiring several separate sessions, can be paid for per treatment. Therefore, if you need four treatments, you can pay a smaller sum of money now, and then pay for another treatment when required.

Timeframe for Treatment

If you have a few days off work (or can afford to take it), liposuction could be something to consider as the recovery period is longer than other non-invasive procedure. The same is true if you would prefer more immediate results, as liposuction will be nearly instantaneous. You will see some results right after treatment, and the rest of the results will come within a few days to a week.

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure and doesn’t require a lot of downtime, but you’ll have to wait about three to four months to see full results. If you are interested in something that has fewer risks than surgery, it could be an excellent choice. The best part is, there is no downtime, so you will see amazing results and go back to normal activities!
