Fat Removal: Why We Don’t Offer CoolSculpting

When our patients come to us for a consultation about fat removal, they often ask us about CoolSculpting. Our answer has always been that we don’t offer CoolSculpting (also known by its scientific term, Cryolipolysis), because in our experience it is much less effective than liposuction. It doesn’t remove the unwanted fat in one go but rather requires repeat treatments, it can be rather uncomfortable if not painful, and it simply doesn’t yield great results like liposuction. (Read more about liposuction vs CoolSculpting here.) In addition, [...]
