Instead of Traditional Liposuction…

Try CoolSculpting, Vaser Lipo or I-Lipo. 

People who want to attain their perfect physique but struggle with stubborn pockets of fat sometimes consider getting liposuction. However, it is a costly procedure with prices typically in the tens of thousands that not everyone can afford. Instead, healthy individuals who want a cheaper alternative sometimes turn to a procedure called CoolSculpting instead.

CoolSculpting is a fairly pain-free procedure, can be done within an hour and has minimal side effects. It costs up to 80 per cent less than liposuction and works by killing your fat cells with cold rather than sucking them out. Results generally show up two to four months after your treatment and you can expect up to a 20-25 per cent reduction in the targeted area.

Vaser Lipo is another relatively new alternative to liposuction that combines liquifying fat cells via ultrasound and then sucking out them through tiny incisions in your body. Some individuals also prefer I-Lipo, which is a non-invasive, laser treatment breaks down fat cells and disperses them into your bloodstream. Later, the fat is removed by your body’s lymphatic system. Depending on the type of liposuction you choose and how many sessions of CoolSculpting you need, your costs may vary. Thus, you should consult with your surgeon or aesthetician to find the most suitable procedure for your needs and budget.
