Everyone has problem areas or small insecurities here and there. But if you’re like most people, you also hate pain, lengthy recovery, and steep out-of-pocket costs for elective surgeries. These are just a few reasons why many forgo liposuction and search for simpler solutions to remove extra body and arm fat. If you’ve been searching for alternatives and can’t seem to find an easy or cost-efficient option, now’s the time to consider CoolSculpting.

So what is the difference between liposuction and CoolSculpting?

While the two procedures have similar outcomes, the non-invasive perks of CoolSculpting have bonus benefits that beat out liposuction every time. Let’s walk through the key benefits and the reasons why CoolSculpting is your best bet for quick and easy fat reduction.


Simply put, pain is painful. It doesn’t matter how much pain medicine you’ve been prescribed, anytime a surgeon cuts into your body, you’re bound to experience lingering pain and soreness. Invasive surgeries also mean a longer time on the table and therefore an increased risk of health complications. CoolSculpting is 100% non-invasive and involves minimal pain. At most, you’ll experience pulling, tingling, or mild pinching. But as the treatment intensifies, these sensations will disappear as the area becomes numb.

No Scarring

When you walk into a room to remove an insecurity, the last thing you want is to walk out with a new one. While significant scarring after lipo is rare, anytime someone’s cutting into you, there’s bound to be scarring or discoloration of some sort. CoolSculpting uses cooling technology to dissolve fat beneath the surface without piercing through your skin. Meaning no unsightly scars and no need for additional surgeries to remove them.

Same Day Recovery

Because there’s no surgery involved, recovery doesn’t last beyond your one-hour doctor’s appointment. Don’t miss work and don’t waste time away from what’s really important to you. There’s also no need for follow up appointments that pull you further from work and family time weeks and months down the line. At the end of the day, your time is valuable, and it shouldn’t be taken up by lengthy recovery and in-hospital stays unless absolutely unavoidable.

Lower Risk

Skipping the surgery also means skipping the risk of nasty side effects like a fat embolism, infection, internal punctures, kidney and heart problems, fluid accumulation, and so much more. Anything can go wrong when your body is exposed and, given the price of any procedure not covered by insurance, the last thing you’ll need at the end is more medical bills. And of course, unnecessary health complications.

More Affordable

Depending on the area you’re treating, the average cost for CoolSculpting is between $2,000 and $4,000. In comparison, the average cost of liposuction is anywhere from $4,000 to $20,000 when you account for hospital fees, medical tests, anesthesia, post-op tests, and recovery time. Not to mention, when it comes to surgery, there’s always an additional long-term cost of taking time away from work. Maybe you miss a big quarter, pass up a lucrative project, or simply fall behind at the office. These types of sacrifices often feel unnecessary for something like fat reduction. And they’re typically far from your mind until you’re already in post-op and it’s too late to turn back the clock. With CoolSculpting, you can save your sick days for the really sick days.


Your body is your business. With treatments as quick as a doctor’s appointment and no outward scarring or days away from work to recover, no one has to know about your “procedure” but you. There’s no need to lie about going on a family vacation, getting sick, or having non-elective surgery. No recovery time and no scarring means no excuses and no judgment.


Enhancing your body is often complicated, but it doesn’t have to be painful, pricey, or such an inconvenience that you miss work, holidays, and time with friends and family. Say goodbye to the days of laying bedridden with bandages and hello to the office appointments that end before you’re back from a lunch break. Thanks to innovative methods like CoolSculpting, feeling toned and better than ever has never been easier.
