Comparing CoolSculpting to Smart Liposuction

CoolSculpting Treatments can help you lose a few ounces of fat –  Dr. Neil Goodman’s average Smart Liposuction case removes 6 pounds of fat but if non-surgical fat reduction is for you – Now there is SculpSure!

If you have heard  “Freeze the Fat” and you want to know if CoolSculpting  is right for you or perhaps there is something better out there.

CoolSculpting is specifically those individuals with a very small amount of “localized” fat. The reason for this is because the “large” CoolSculpting applicator treats an area as described by CoolSculpting as “the size of a stick of butter” , about 4 ounces of fat.  As per their studies “up to 23%” of that fat actually goes away in 3-6 months1. A typical CoolSculpting treatment may consists of 2 large applicator treatments and 2 small applicator treatments. The average cost for these will be a $3750 – $4,250 (local area average cost). After waiting 3-6 months for results, CoolSculpting claims that 23% of the fat will be gone1.  That’s less than 3 ounces of fat …which come to a staggering cost of $1250 per ounce of fat removed!

Smart Liposuction – The average Smart Liposuction procedure by Dr. Neil Goodman removes 2.8 liters of fat. That’s 104 ounces or 6 1/2 pounds  of fat which is 35 times more fat than the CoolSculpting procedure reviewed above.

Not only is that 35 times more fat removed than CoolSculpting but Smart Liposuction removes all the problem fat in the areas treated. Additionally. Smart Liposuction also tightens skin, something that CoolSculpting can’t claim. With Smart Liposuction you walk in and walk out with the body of your dreams and unlike CoolSculpting there is no waiting 3-6 months for results!*

SculpSure – If you want non-invasive fat reduction, you need to know about SculpSure.

SculpSure has just become the newest and best way to non-surgically treat fat and it’s not hard to understand why. A large CoolSculpting treatment treats an area of fat about the size of a stick of butter, takes an hour and costs about $1400. In just 25 minutes 4 SculpSure applicators simultaneously treat a total area the size of 3½ sticks of butter. SculpSure studies show a higher percentage of fat treated is reduced yet 4 applicators of SculpSure cost about the same as the 1 large CoolSculpting applicator. But it’s not just 3 1/2 times more fat, results are seen in half the time and SculpSure also tightens skin, something that CoolSculpting doesn’t even claim to do.

CoolSculpting by ZELTIQ

  • Is only for those people with “a mild amount of extra fat whose fat deposits are localized” (as per CoolSculpting)
  • Is designed to treat small areas of fat deposits and “trouble spots” (as per CoolSculpting)
  • A large CoolSculpting applicator treats an area about the size of a stick of butter BUT only 23% of the fat treated (1/4 stick of butter) is going to be eliminated…. leaving 75% remaining!1
  • Results take 3-6 months to see after the procedure
  • Cost – At $1300- $1500 for the large CoolSculpting applicator and $600 -$700 per cycle for the small applicator normally people spend $4000 – $5000 to have several areas treated
  • With 77% of the fat treated still remaining and only a 23% reduction1 there is no doubt why CoolSculpting physicians advertise that “some patients may benefit from a second round of treatments
  • CoolSculpting does nothing for sagging skin and has no skin tightening effect so the appearance of sagging skin will become even more apparent

Smart Liposuction by Dr. Neil C. Goodman:

  • Smart liposuction is advanced and perfected laser liposuction and offers a minimally invasive laser fat removal process that requires little to no recovery time and actually enhance and tightens your skin in the process.
  • Smart Liposuction removes unwanted fat utilizing the latest advancements in laser technology. No other cosmetic surgery procedure comes close!

CoolSculpting After

CoolSculpting’s “Stick of butter” Immediately after treatment with large applicator

With CoolSculpting only 1/4 of fat treated will succumb to the Cryolypolysis (freezing the fat) process. And CoolSculpting also takes 3 to 6 months to see the final result.

Conversely, with results are immediate. With Smart Liposuction you walk in and walk out with your new body. And with Smart Liposuction you are not going to need a second treatment because the fat is gone.

So here is the picture of CoolSculpting after fat has been treated in the large applicator (described as about the size of a stick of butter). Fat is sucked into the CoolSculpting applicator and as can be seen it actually looks like a stick of butter after the treatment. Studies show 23% of fat treated eventually is eventually lost after fat cells die1. A treatment cycle $1300- $1500 for the large applicator which treats large areas (Stomach) and is $600 -$700 per cycle for the small applicator which treats small areas (each love handle). If a second round of treatments are needed the cost doubles.

CoolSculpting research states 23% of fat treated during a CoolSculpting treatment will eventually die and these fats cells are then are naturally eliminated from your body… But hold on, that leaves 77% of the fat treated in place! So will 23% reduction (in the small areas treated)1 make a difference in the way you look? Well, this is why some physicians say ”some patients may benefit from a second treatment” because a second CoolSculpting treatment will allow you to lose another 20%1 of the fat in that treatment area.

The 3 Myths about CoolSculpting

Myth 1: CoolSculpting is a Quick Fix. The actual procedures only take about two hours per area (an hour on the area plus before and after) but several areas may need to be treated so time is dependent on the total number of areas but as far as results, don’t expect to walk ot skinny. Patients may not see start to see results for a few months and full results may take up to 6 months after the procedure. Many patients report that the first treatment does not produce much as far as results given that a total of 20% reduction1 is shown as per their research and a second course of CoolSculpting treatments are then needed.

Myth 2: It’s NOT an “eat more Food Pass”. CoolSculpting freezes 20% of the fat cells1 in a treated area while leaving 80% of the healthy cells in that area behind. Increasing dietary intake will simply allow the 80% of fat cells left behind to increase in size and replace the volume …. Basically replacing any lost fat.

Myth 3: It Will Lift the Sag, Tighten Skin and Sagging Areas. Not to be confused skin tightening technologies such as Laser liposuction, CoolSculpting simply cause some fat cells to die specified area but it will not do anything as far as lifting sagging skin. If a patient is already experiencing sag and turns to CoolSculpting the appearance of sag may become even more apparent.
Both CoolSculpting and Smartlipo will reduce fatty pockets, but the outcomes are totally different. Smart Liposuction not only by reduces fat but also by creates a more curvaceous body contour. CoolSculpting can only reduce fat in specific areas and is not a sculpting technique.

Because CoolSculpting simply reduces fat in treated areas by an average of 20 percent, it is not be a solution for those who also have loose skin. CoolScultping will not deliver the dramatic contouring results that can be provided by Smartlipo.

Who is CoolSculpting designed for?

CoolSculpting by ZELTIQ is designed to remove small areas of fat deposits in “trouble spots” and is only for those with a mild amount of extra fat and people whose fat deposits are localized. CoolSculpting is designed for spot treatment of areas and claims to remove 20-25% of fat from a specific area 2-6 months after treatment.
