There are several ways to remove excess fat in the body. These procedures are called invasive and non-invasive methods. Cool sculpting is a non-invasive procedure in which fat cells are removed from the patient’s body without any incisions. This procedure is also known as cryolipolysis in which the fat cells are exposed to freezing temperatures.
Liposuction is maybe the most famous fat removal procedure in the world and involves the extraction of the fat cells with a small tube. The excess fat is displaced by using the tube and prepared for the suction-out procedure by a surgical vacuuming
How Efficient They Are?
Liposuction is done when the patient wants much amount of fat to be removed out of his/her body. Surgeons say that up to 5 liters of excess fat cells can be removed from the patient’s body with liposuction surgery. This is the limit for safe liposuction surgery and removing more than that is not safe, the doctors say. Liposuction and Coolsculpting are both used for eliminating the excess fat, permanently. However, patients can still develop fat in other parts of the body.
Liposuction is like a laser epilation procedure. When laser epilation is performed on your chest hair, your body doesn’t develop any hair on your chest anymore. Even 2 years after your liposuction procedures, if you regain all of your lost fat, your fat distribution through your body will not be the same. The fat path is actually destroyed with liposuction procedure so the body will distribute the fat to the other parts of the body.
How Safe They Are?
Coolsculpting is considered one of the safest procedures in the world. However, we can’t say the same thing for liposuction. Because liposuction involves incision and there is always a chance of infection. Pregnant people or people with diabetes should definitely avoid getting liposuction procedures. Surgeons examine the patient’s body and determine the best amount of excess fat that is suitable for extraction. Swellings and scars are inevitable but people generally return their work within 2 weeks.
