07 Sep SculpSure vs. Liposuction
If you are in relatively good shape, but are struggling with a few extra bulges of fat here and there, you may be looking for some extra help that only a plastic surgeon can provide. While liposuction was the only method for fat removal in the past, there are now other options to choose from.
There are now nonsurgical options available so you can contour your tummy and get back to your normal daily routine. One popular fat removal method is SculpSure. SculpSure offers many benefits, but it works very differently from liposuction and offers different results. Read on to learn more about these two procedures.
Why Choose Liposuction?
Liposuction has always been the top choice for removing excess fat. Liposuction is a very thorough procedure and works well for those who are somewhat overweight and would not qualify as a good candidate for SculpSure. The results are immediate, so you will look better immediately.
Liposuction is a surgical procedure and most likely will have to be done at an accredited outpatient surgical facility under anesthesia. There will also be downtime associated with it, but generally, patients are satisfied with their outcome.
Why Choose SculpSure?
SculpSure is a nonsurgical procedure that requires no downtime. You could technically get SculpSure done on your lunch break and return to work immediately afterward.
The procedure uses cooling technology to freeze fat cells, which are later removed via your body’s natural processes. It will take some time – as long as 12 weeks – for you to see the results of your fat removal.
Also, SculpSure is not as thorough as liposuction. In a SculpSure session, 24% of fat cells are removed in the targeted area. Plus, the treatment area is small. If you have fat bulges in multiple places, it will take more than one session to get the job done. Therefore, this procedure is best for those who are minimally overweight and have just small areas that need revision.
