Body Sculpting VS Surgical liposuction

More often, certain types of fitness and health magazines offer diet and exercise plans to get a proper shaped body but most of the times it doesn’t work. The sufferers following recommended plans don’t come with the results they desire. Today, advancements in medical science have gained immense popularity by offering solutions to human related problems. Cosmetic treatments are now made available to overcome the issue of extra fat deposition in the body. A common question we normally get from our patients is whether body sculpting or liposuction is best option for contouring. One of the major differences between these two is that liposuction involves surgical procedure while body sculpting involves non-surgical procedure.

Which option is right for you?

Let’s take a look at some of the key featurse that can help you in making the right decision before treatment.

  • Liposuction:

It is a surgical procedure that is administered under general anesthesia or even sometime intravenous sedation. The treatment works by removing excess body fat from any area of the body to give well-defined profile. Normally, the surgeon targets abdominal region, back, arms and neck to eradicate fatty material. Procedure of liposuction is carried out by inserting a small thin tube called as cannula in the area with excess fat via incision. This tube is moved over the entire region for sucking out the material. After following the post-operative instructions of recovery phase, patients see slimmer body as a final outcome.

  • Body Sculpting:

It is a non-surgical procedure that works by removing extra fats from abdomen, thighs, neck and other areas of the body. The major goal of the treatment is to improve size and shape of specific body area. During CoolSculpting, the practitioner or surgeon uses a tool that clamps down and delivers cooling effect on roll of fat to freezing temperature. Frozen and dead fat cells are naturally eliminated through liver after few weeks of treatment. Improvements are seen within weeks but final results appear after months.

 How long does each procedure take?

  • CoolSculpting:

This technique doesn’t involve any recovery or downtime. Few sessions with the interval of weeks are carried out to achieve the best results. Each single session is usually completed in an hour. Most people see the full results three months after their last procedure.

  • Liposuction:

Most of the sufferers come with slimming body profile through one treatment that takes about 1-2 hours. It is carried on outpatient basis which means you can go home on the day of treatment. Few days are needed to recover fully. You may strictly advise to avoid exercising and weight lifting for 2-3 weeks. It may take several months for the full results to be seen as swelling goes down.

  • Comparing Results:

Both the procedures remove fats from the body permanently to give better contour and shape although neither work for reducing the body weight. The techniques are only effective when comes to removing fats and none of them play role in improving the appearance of cellulite or loose skin. Research have shown that 25% of fat cells are eliminated through CoolSculpting while liposuction takes about 2-3 months after surgery for delivering final results as the results aren’t immediate.
