What Is The Cost? Would I Be A Candidate?
Let’s get personal. Are you tired of whatever you’re seeing when you put on a tight dress or fitted dress shirt? Tired of fearing the scale? So done seeing that tiny “fupa” of fat that you haven’t been able to get rid of for some time? If you answered yes to any of these questions,, CoolSculpting is right for you!
CoolSculpting aids in the destruction of fat cells forever — yes, you read that right — and if you have a spot on the bod that you can pull and feel tiny fat beads, then you’re a perfect candidate for CoolSculpting.
If you’re serious about removing your stubborn fat forever, it will cost $600—$700 per cycle. Each person needs two cycles for one treatment (on the right and left sides) no matter the desired area. Since this is a cosmetic procedure, CoolSculpting isn’t covered by insurance. However, there are payment plans you can work with such as CareCredit and GreenSky that can help you get to feeling and looking your best.
This Sounds Great! Any Risks?
While there isn’t any downtime, that doesn’t mean you will get up and look like you didn’t just freeze away an area full of fat.
It’s safe to say CoolSculpting can leave you slightly bruised or even swollen for a couple days following the procedure. You may experience redness at the site and feel slightly sore but, there aren’t any open wounds or stitches.
Okay, woah! That was a lot to take in. But wait, there’s more — no, really, there is.
What Is Liposuction?
This procedure, like CoolSculpting, gets rid of unwanted fat cells. The difference is that that Liposuction sucks the fat cells out instead of freezing them, and is an invasive surgery.
Liposuction is used to treat areas on the body such as the abdomen, flanks, buttocks, arms or neck. If these areas have a little extra fat cells hibernating, Liposuction can help take care of it!
Your doctor will let you know which type of anesthesia is right for you and your body, whether it be local anesthesia, intravenous sedation, and general anesthesia. Once you pick that out, it’s incision time!
Through a small incision, diluted local anesthesia is infused to reduce bleeding and trauma. A hollow tube is then inserted through the incision to break up the excess fat. By using a controlled back and forth motion, the fat is then suctioned out using a vacuum.
That was it? That’s easy, right?
