We all fantasize about effortless, painless weight loss that is long lasting and sustainable. When liposuction first hit the marketplace, it seemed like the answer we all were waiting for—waking up weighing less and with fewer fat areas to conceal. It sounded like the ultimate body sculpting procedure that the masses had been waiting for—fat elimination that didn’t require exercise and strict diets.
Then the horror stories started coming to light. Surgical procedures gone bad in the form of ugly, misshapen bulges, scarring, bruising, disproportionate looking areas and fat returning on other parts of the body. For some, permanent nerve damage and even death occurs, as anesthesia is always a risk with any surgical procedure—an example that hit the mainstream media would be Kanye West’s mother.
There is a variety of risks associated with liposuction, which is why it’s smart to consider some of the safer alternatives, such as CoolSculpting, which is the only procedure that will freeze the fat in your body. It’s a safe, non-invasive procedure that does not require that the patient be anesthetized, yet is just as effective at body sculpting as Liposuction is. While liposuction patients risk the possibility of nerves being severed even with the most experienced surgeon, there is no such risk with CoolSculpting.
Many liposuction patients experience swelling that can last for months on end, resulting in uncomfortable numbness and a difficult recovery time. In addition, there is often a high risk of infection that can lead to fever, nausea and vomiting, and extreme soreness that can seriously hinder your day to day activities. When you freeze the fat, swelling typically only lasts a few days and there is no risk of infection. Plus, you can go back to work and your regular physical activities the same day.
Consider the life threatening danger of liposuction versus the natural looking results of CoolSculpting and the significantly faster recovery time. It’s a no-brainer!
