DIFFERENCES BETWEEN LIPOSUCTION TREATMENT AND FAT FREEZING
There are several ways to remove unwanted fat deposits on your body, today we will talk about two. Cool sculpting and Liposuction. These procedures vary dramatically in their approach, yet produce the same outcome. The question is which do you go with? Let’s break these two procedures differences down so that you can decide what’s best for you.
Liposuction is the most common and older of the two procedures being around since the 80’s. There are an array of different liposuction procedures including
- Fluid Assisted Liposuction (FAL)
- Power Assisted Liposuction (PAL)
- Laser Assisted Liposuction (LAL)
- Suction Assisted Lipectomy (SAL) (the original)
- Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction (UAL)
None of these procedures are superior over the other, they have different approaches but all work well. Liposuction can be performed under sedation, full general anesthesia or local anesthesia. How much fat needs to be removed and the area (s) to be treated will determine which type of anesthesia you’ll need. Rule of thumb is the more areas you need treatment on, the more anesthesia you’ll need. Swelling and bruising are common, however the incision made for liposuction is small with minimal scarring. A client can get back to light exercise after just a few days, however there is a recovery period that takes a few weeks to take its course.
Unlike liposuction, cool sculpting doesn’t require anesthesia at all as it is a non-invasive procedure. The cool sculpting system has a gel pad that is placed over the treatment area and is then disposed. Suction is activated when a cooling head is placed over the pad. There’s a liquid that flows through a headpiece on the base of the machine and it sucks the treatment area into the head which in turn freezes the fat. The cooling head is removed after an hour or so and the frozen area is then massaged. It is a bit uncomfortable during the initial tissue suction, however the cooling head gets to work fast and numbs the area so there isn’t any pain when massaging. The treated area can feel a bit tender post procedure even though there isn’t much pain during it. Results take a few week to see, just like liposuction.
