It is good news that non-surgical procedures are on the rise as new technologies are allowing for excellent outcomes with minimum or no invasiveness.

The mantra today is go custom – as there is no size that fits all when it comes to cosmetic treatment.

It is true that CoolSculpting is a marvelous fat reducer.
CoolSculpting is non-invasive and focuses on any part of the body – belly, double chin, or love handles.
Patients lose about 20-30% fat from the target area, and the procedure is quick (just 30 minutes or so), pain-free, and with no down time.

When patients come for CoolSculpting, Maryland doctors offer recommendations based on several methods available.
As a specialist in CoolSculpting treatment in Westminster pointed out, “Medical science has made available scores of different combinations of patient-specific treatments”.

Yet, many people want to get things clear.

Is CoolSculpting really as “cool” as it professes to be?
The objective of this query perhaps is to compare it with liposuction.

Liposuction certainly is not a gentle procedure. Here, a surgeon makes incisions in the skin and inserts a suction tube and literally sucks fat from the target area.
To facilitate fat break-up and removal, some doctors use UAL method, short for Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction.
For the patient, the post procedure experience is pain, bruising, and numbness, not a pretty picture at all.

It also has serious risks such as clots that can travel up to the brain and cause strokes – and not to speak of infections, bleeding, and issues related with anesthesia.
Despite the fact that liposuction by no means is the safest procedure it still is relatively widespread.
Perhaps the reason why people go for liposuction is it is more aggressive than CoolSculpting.

“It allows for more fat to be removed in a single sitting”, says a board certified cosmetic surgeon. “CoolSculpting on the other hand, gets rid of only 25-30% fat in a single session”.

A combination of liposuction with tummy tuck can produce dramatic results.

CoolSculpting, on the other hand, is a good option for those who want to get rid of small fatty deposits.
Here are a few key points of CoolSculpting that you need to know.

• It is FDA approved for non-surgical fat removal.
• A predictable session lasts about an hour.
• It is not a treatment for obesity – rather, it is intended as a “spot treatment” of tricky areas such as bra rolls, love handles, and back fat.

A word about pricing

Typically, CoolSculpting pricing is governed by Zeltiq, the manufacturer, so that you can rest assured the pricing would be the same at every clinic.
However, a surgeon performing CoolSculpting Maryland says, “We price a treatment based on what the patient needs and what it takes to treat the problem area”.
Cost is not everything.

While it is definitely an important consideration, there are many other factors that you must evaluate first.

• Has the doctor assessed you as a fit candidate for CoolSculpting?
• Has the doctor offered alternative procedure(s)?
• Is the doctor Board Certified in the specific specialty?
• Has the doctor shown you “before and after” pictures of his/her patients?
It makes sense to get satisfied to answers of the above questions first before bringing price into the picture.
