Liposuction Vs. CoolSculpting—What’s the Difference?

In recent years, non-invasive fat removal technology, like CoolSculpting, has grown in popularity as an alternative to traditional liposuction. However, Dr. Franckle’s extensive experience has shown him that traditional liposuction is still the best option. Read on to discover why.

How Does Liposuction Work?

Liposuction is still the only procedure available that completely removes fat from the body. After making tiny incisions into the areas being treated, Dr. Frankle inserts an IV fluid to loosen the fat cells and prepare them for removal. Next, a small metal tube with suction capabilities—a cannula—is used to remove the fat cells from the body. The progress is measured visually, as well as by feel.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

First, the treatment area is marked for the precise placement of an applicator device. As two cooling pads numb the area, the applicator head draws fat cells into a cup. Without harming the skin, muscles, or nerves, a controlled cooling process called cryolipolysis kills the fat cells in the cup. An hour later, the surgeon removes the cup and massages the dead fat cells for natural removal by the body.

Why Is Liposuction the Better Choice?

CoolSculpting appears to be an attractive choice because it offers the decreased risks and downtime associated with a non-invasive procedure. But, it is a newer technology, and the long-term results are less certain. Also, the areas of treatment can be limited by the size of the application head—fat being treated must be able to fit into the freezing cup. Typically, up to three treatments are necessary to achieve noticeable results, and patients have reported noticeable indentations where the application device was placed on the body.

Liposuction, on the other hand, offers a fast reduction of fat and better contouring of the body because the treatment area is not limited to the size of an application head. While liposuction does require some downtime for recovery and carries the possibility of surgical risks, the results are easier for the surgeon to control and visualize almost immediately. In recent years, Dr. Franckle has seen several patients interested in liposuction for cryolipolysis revision, correcting any indentations or undesirable contours caused by past CoolSculpting treatments.

For a good candidate, liposuction offers more proven results than the newer non-invasive alternatives. Liposuction and its techniques have improved over time, bringing us less invasive options like Body Jet and Laser-Assisted techniques. The best way to discuss your goals and potential fat reduction procedures is to visit a board certified plastic surgeon like William Franckle, MD, FACS.

What to Expect With Liposuction >>⁠

Liposuction will be performed on an outpatient basis, using either general or local anesthesia, so you will need someone to bring you home. Depending on the type of liposuction, Dr. Franckle will use a sterile solution, sound waves, laser, or another method to break down fat cells within the targeted area. He will then remove the broken-down fat cells through a thin tube, called a cannula, which will be inserted into the area through a small incision.⁠

Dr. Franckle provides patients with specific instructions for recovery based on their situation. Most patients experience bruising, swelling, and soreness for a few weeks after liposuction. You may need to take antibiotics to prevent infection and wear a compression garment to control swelling. In most cases, you will be able to return to work within a few days and normal activities within a few weeks. While liposuction should permanently remove these fat cells, you’ll need to maintain a stable weight to prevent the formation of new fat cells.⁠

Tummy tuck or Body Contouring or Both? >>⁠

Many patients choose to undergo abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) in conjunction with other body contouring procedures to help reduce the downtime associated with recovery. One popular option is liposuction to help remove stubborn fat pockets that are resistant to diet and exercise alone.⁠

Other Body Procedures:⁠

- Body Jet Liposuction⁠

- Butt Enhancement⁠

- Mommy Makeover⁠

- Labiaplasty⁠

What Happens During a Rhinoplasty Consultation?⁠

The first step in the consultation is to review your medical history. During the medical review, it is important that you share any history of breathing issues or allergies, which could impact the nasal passage and results of the surgery.⁠

Dr. Franckle will also use Vectra 3D Imaging during the consultation, which allows patients to view a preview of the results before they commit to rhinoplasty.... how great is that!?⁠

Once Dr. Franckle understands your unique aesthetic goals, he can decide the best type of surgical procedure to meet those goals. #hereforyou⁠

Who is an Ideal Candidate for Breast Augmentation?⁠

- Flat chest or lack of volume⁠

- Asymmetry between breasts with one noticeably smaller than the other⁠

- Sagging or flat breasts due to weight loss, aging, or pregnancy⁠

- Tubular breasts resulting in uneven, constricted, or deformed breast shape⁠

If you have fully developed breasts and are unhappy with their size or shape, you may be a good candidate for breast augmentation. Candidates should also be non-smoking adults in good physical health and should not be pregnant or currently be breastfeeding.⁠
