Coolsculpting, and Surgical and Non-surgical Liposuction – Which One Should You Choose?

There is no doubt that a healthy diet and regular exercise are essential for a healthy weight.

However, some people either fail to achieve the ideal weight or are not happy with their overall slimmed down figure with the dieting and exercise.

Some people are unhappy with their slimmed down physique because they want their certain areas bulgy while certain other areas to be flat or concaved which isn’t always achieved with dieting and exercise.

For such people, there are surgical as well as non-surgical options available like liposuction and coolsculpting respectively.

Both these options have been proven effective in shedding unwanted fat from just the body parts desired by the patients and achieve one’s specific aesthetic goals.

What’s more, now there is an option of non-surgical liposuction available too!

But if a person decides to undergo one of these options, which one she should choose? Let’s know more about them and see if you can decide which one to choose.


Coolsculpting is a non-surgical method of fat removal approved by the FDA. It uses a device that applies cryolipolysis technology to decreases localised subcutaneous fat.

The device has a vacuum applicator which sends controlled cooling towards the skin surface.

Thus, by applying an analytically low temperature to fat cells, the device triggers crystallisation and eventually death of the targeted fat cells.

Coolsculpting can be used in the submental (“double chin”) region, abdomen, flanks and thighs. You can know more about coolsculpting at

Liposuction is one of the most popular fat-reduction surgeries. It is a surgical approach to remove unwanted subcutaneous fat and improve body contour.

Liposuction is performed by a plastic surgeon by making one or multiple very small incisions in the areas from where the excess fat is to be sucked out.

Based on the number of body parts to be treated and the quantity of fat to be taken out, this procedure may be performed under local or general anaesthesia or sedation.

A wide range of body areas can be treated with liposuction such as abdomen, back, waist, buttocks, hips, upper arms, chin, neck, thighs and knees.

Non-surgical Liposuction

Those who want to undergo liposuction but don’t want a surgery, have the option of non-surgical liposuction available, though it’s not always lipo-suction.

In non-surgical liposuction Melbourne from Chelsea Cosmetics Melbourne, non-surgical methods are used to either melt, liquefy, or freeze and destroy fat cells. Here are some of the procedures of non-surgical liposuction.

Laser Liposuction

Laser liposuction is performed by using heat energy from different wavelengths of fibre-optic lasers to damage the cell walls of fat cells.

Once this cell wall is destroyed, the fatty oil inside the fat cell oozes out and is either removed by more invasive methods or flushed out by your lymphatic system.


Ultrasound or ultrasonic liposuction makes use of ultrasound energy delivered at the treatment site to liquefy fatty tissue which is then removed easily and smoothly with a thin cannula.

Actually ultrasound liposuction is not aimed at weight loss. Instead, it’s intended to lessen fat accumulation usually occurring around abdomen, waist and thighs not responding to diet and exercise.

Radio Frequency Energy

Radio frequency method delivers therapeutic heat to tissues of skin to destroy fat cells and decrease cellulite, folds and wrinkles that affect the face and body.

After the fat cells are destroyed, the remaining lipid fluid is absorbed and processed by the body, leaving your skin smoother-looking and firm without the “bumpy” cellulite.

By knowing about all these options, you can easily decide which among them will be the best for you. You should consider your aesthetic goals, your ability to endure and recovery period, and then you can take an informed decision.
