CoolSculpting vs. Lipo: How long do results last?

Body contouring has become a popular option for men and women wanting to get rid of stubborn fat bulges. CoolSculpting and liposuction are excellent options for contouring the body by reducing fat in specific areas. In determining which procedure may be best for them people often ask – CoolSculpting vs lipo: How long do results last.

CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction procedure that sculpts the body by freezing unwanted fat cells. CoolSculpting works using a system of controlled cooling known as cryolipolysis. The system freezes and destroys the fat cells without harming the surrounding skin and tissue. The cells are then naturally eliminated by the body.

Liposuction
Liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes fat with the use of a cannula (small tube). The cannula is used to break up the fat, and is inserted under the skin through a small incision. The loosened fat cells are then suctioned out via a tube attached to the cannula (learn more).

CoolSculpting vs Lipo -How long do the results last?
CoolSculpting and liposuction will both destroy fat cells for good, and those cells will not grow back, so the results gained are long-lasting.

However, it’s important to remember that these are body contouring procedures that are designed to reshape the body. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle will therefore impact the duration of the results. That’s because not all the fat cells are treated, so those that remain will expand if there is significant weight gain.
