Fat Reduction: Aqualipo® or CoolSculpting®?
If you ask yourself whether liposuction or Coolsculpting is the better approach to get rid of unwanted fat, some basic facts are important to know.
Coolsculpting is a heavily marketed procedure that aims to reduce the amount of unwanted fat in your body. This technology is intended to target your fat cells by freezing and squeezing them, so that with time they can be broken down and naturally eliminated by your body. However, there is no way to gauge how much fat has been destroyed when you have finished a Coolsculpting session. This is different with a liposuction procedure such as Aqualipo, where you leave your doctor’s office with a lot less fat than you walked in with. If you so wish, you could even take it home in a jar!
One Procedure vs Repeat Treatments
While Coolsculpting is a non-invasive treatment, it is not pain-free. Cooling down your body to near-freezing temperatures has been reported to be quite uncomfortable. It’s also not a one-and-done deal but rather takes a series of repeat visits to complete. Of even more concern are reports that in some cases, CoolSculpting has led to an actual increase in fat, a condition called hyperplasia. This would of course be the opposite of what you are looking for.
Again, consider Aqualipo liposuction as the alternative: By using water to flush out excess body fat, your physician is able to administer a slight local anesthetic into the water stream. This makes the procedure very easy and comfortable. Imagine having a pleasant two-hour conversation with your surgeon while your fat is pumped away to be permanently eliminated. No repeats necessary.
Leave the building and leave your fat cells behind
Rather than undergo a series of repeat Coolsculpting treatments, you should consider a superior procedure that is performed by a physician: Aqualipo. In the past, liposuction was an uncomfortable and traumatic procedure, but modern technology has made those concerns obsolete. Unique water-jet technology can dislodge and simultaneously suction fat cells from the body with greater accuracy and significantly less force than older liposuction techniques. Unlike Coolculpting, Aqualipo permanently removes the fat from your body in just one sitting.
While treatments like SculpSure or Coolsculpting sound great in theory, they have drawbacks: Your fat cells are not removed from your body, repeat treatments are most likely needed, and Coolsculpting can be performed by someone other than a doctor; in many cases a doctor is not even on the premises.
You may think it’s worth the wait if you can avoid surgery. But Aqualipo liposuction is so minimally-invasive and gentle, it can hardly be called surgery. It’s so fast that most patients are back to work and their regular activities within two days. And it is performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon or another physician with full medical training.
What Do Patients Say?
When Nashville musician Abby Kasch heard about Aqualipo, she was excited to try it. She felt that her confidence didn’t match what she wanted to portray when singing on stage, and she realized that this had to do with how she felt about her body. She loves the fact that she no longer has a need to cover up in jackets and layers to hide her bulges.
If you think Aqualipo can help you feel more confident, there is no better time to get started than now. Schedule your personal consultation today, have your Aqualipo procedure next week, and you’ll be ready for swimsuit season in no time!
