Over the past 10 years, more and more women and men are choosing non-invasive CoolSculpting over liposuction.
Not only is CoolSculpting extremely effective, it is also safer than liposuction and avoids surgery, incisions, anesthesia, downtime, and serious or long-term complications.
Continue reading to learn four reasons CoolSculpting is safer than liposuction.
4 Reasons CoolSculpting is Safer Than Liposuction
1. CoolSculpting is Noninvasive
One of the main reasons CoolSculpting is safer than liposuction? It is nonsurgical and completely noninvasive.
The treatment is performed using a variety of curved treatment applicators that gently vacuum fatty tissue between two cooling panels and deliver a patented cooling technology.
As such, patients aren’t at risk for intra and post-operative complications including anesthesia complications, blood clots, infection, seroma, hematoma, pulmonary edema, and pulmonary embolism.
2. It Doesn’t Require Anesthesia
CoolSculpting doesn’t involve any type of anesthesia – local, tumescent, or general.
Its controlled cooling effects not only destroy subcutaneous fat cells, they also cause the treatment area to become numb in a matter of minutes. This makes CoolSculpting a safe as well as virtually painless procedure.
3. There is Zero-Downtime
Following CoolSculpting, patients are free to go about their day as they normally would. They do not need to restrict their activities in any way or worry about post-operative pain, complications, or a lengthy recovery.
4. CoolSculpting Side Effects Are Temporary and Mild
Most CoolSculpting side effects, which can include tenderness, bruising, tingling, and numbness, are mild and resolve on their own in a matter of days.
What’s more, CoolSculpting is not known to pose any long-term or serious health implications. The same cannot be said about liposuction, which can puncture organs, cause a pulmonary or fat embolism, or even result in death.
