Is Liposuction Better Than CoolSculpting®?

January 18, 2022

There are several ways to get rid of the stubborn fat that’s been bothering you. You can choose between liposuction, the gold-standard procedure for body contouring, and non-surgical treatments such as CoolSculpting®. Here’s how these two different options stack up in terms of: How they work: Liposuction involves small incisions that allow a thin tube to break up unwanted fat and suction it out. A newer version of liposuction called SmartLipo adds gentle laser energy to this process to enhance the procedure. Meanwhile, CoolSculpting uses cryolipolysis, a technique that makes the fat cells so cold that they freeze and die. Effectiveness and results: Liposuction offers dramatic and immediate results.

Will Liposuction Help Tighten My Skin?

November 11, 2021

If you want to eliminate stubborn excess fat, then liposuction may be the perfect procedure. However, if you’re hoping to tighten your skin at the same time, there are a few things to know. Unfortunately, liposuction will not address hanging skin or skin that’s significantly loose. However, some devices do firm up mild skin laxity. Skin tightening treatments can help with that too. TRADITIONAL LIPOSUCTION Traditional liposuction is a time-tested method of fat removal. It has helped many people get rid of their unwanted fat and enhance their figures. However, removing excess fat is all that it does. This minimally-invasive procedure won’t tighten your skin. If you have good skin elasticity, then this shouldn’t be an issue. If you don’t, yourRead Full Post

How Much Fat Can Liposuction Remove?

May 14, 2020

Liposuction is a great way to slim and sculpt different areas of the body. But to ensure patient safety and minimize complications, there’s a limit to the amount of fat that can be removed in a single session. Leading guidelines set the maximum extraction limit at approximately 11 pounds of fat and fluid. This does not mean that you will lose 11 pounds during your liposuction procedure. It means that the combined fat, fluids, and blood removed during a session will not exceed 11 pounds. While liposuction is a safe and trusted surgery, there are risks that come with removing too much fat. For example, it’s possible to experience adverse cosmetic effects such as lumps or dimpling. More importantly, the potentialRead Full Post
