Liposuction Versus CoolSculpting™: Which is Right for You?

Serving Greenwood, Greenville, Columbia, South Carolina & nearby Augusta, Georgia

Like many of the people who turn to Board-Certified South Caroline Plastic Surgeon Dr. Ted Vaughn for help achieving their aesthetic and cosmetic goals, these post-holiday scenarios may sound familiar:

  • Your clothes are tighter.
  • Your tummy is softer and rounder.
  • Your thighs are wider.

Clothing alone cannot hide the unsightly bulge that comes with age or weight-gain. You can diet and exercise to address these physical flaws, but even those activities alone may not produce the results you want.

That's when it's time to schedule a consultation with our cosmetic surgeon, who sees patients in Greenwood but also caters to communities in and around Greenville.

Liposuction and CoolSculpting™ are two popular procedures that Dr. Vaughn recommends for patients who are trying to eliminate bulge.

How do you know which one of these is right for you?

Here are some things you might consider:

Liposuction, the most popular cosmetic treatment in the U.S., is a surgical procedure in which the doctor makes small incisions around the targeted fat zones, flushes those areas with intravenous fluid to loosen the fat, then uses a cannula to extract that unwanted bulge.

CoolSculpting™ is a revolutionary non-surgical, non-invasive, fat-reduction procedure that generally requires 1 to 3 treatments. During these treatments, fat cells are frozen beneath the skin, which allows the body to naturally eliminate them.

Since there are pros and cons to each procedure, so the best way to determine which plastic surgery approach is best for your cosmetic goals, is to schedule a consultation at Piedmont Plastic Surgery with Dr. Vaughn, our Board-Certified South Carolina Plastic Surgeon.
