Should I get CoolSculpting or Liposuction? 

CoolSculpting vs. Liposuction

No Needles. No Surgery. No Downtime.

Benefits of CoolSculpting over Liposuction:

  • Non-invasive; no surgery required
  • Less expensive
  • No needles = less pain
  • No or minimal downtime

Possible risks of Liposuction:

  1. Anesthesia risks
  2. Accumulating fluid
  3. Deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary, and cardiac complications
  4. Irregular or Asymmetrical shape/appearance
  5. Infection
  6. Damage to nerves
  7. Damage to blood vessels
  8. Damage to lungs
  9. Need for surgical revision
  10. Swelling
  11. Rippling or loose skin
  12. Irregular pigmentation
  13. Poor wound healing


While Liposuction is a popular fat reduction treatment, it does come with its own set of risks. CoolSculpting isn’t entirely risk-free but the risks are very minimal to include side effects like bruising, swelling, and temporary tightness or tingling. Most doctors agree that CoolSculpting can give you the results you want, similar to liposuction, without the unnecessary risks, complications, or side effects.

When deciding what treatment is right for you, it is important to take in to consideration your goals and the possible side effects. Liposuction might be a commonly known procedure but that doesn’t make it a safe one. Treatments that are non-invasive, safer, and without pain or downtime, like CoolSculpting, have been created in order to prevent patients from having to get a procedure like Liposuction.

Some patients might choose the more risky, painful, and expensive procedure in order to see immediate results. While CoolSculpting does not provide immediate results, you should see results within a few weeks. Whether you’re wanting to slim down for an upcoming event, get ready for bikini season, or jump start your New Year goals, CoolSculpting still works fast enough to achieve this for you.

With CoolSculpting, you don’t have to worry about a painful procedure with a recovery at home. You can save money and enjoy your experience. Most patients like to bring a book to read or watch TV while they have their treatment.
