When you search for CoolSculpting online, you may see many comparisons to liposuction. This technique can achieve the same effects as lipo without the surgery. Yet CoolSculpting has another edge over its surgical alternative: cost.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average liposuction fee charged by surgeons and physicians across the U.S. was two to three times that of other minimally invasive fat-reducing techniques.
Since CoolSculpting is a noninvasive treatment administered at California Skin & Laser Center, the expense and downtime typically associated with surgical procedures is eliminated.
This treatment involves precise and controlled application of cold to a targeted area. The cold freezes fat cells, which are naturally eliminated from the body over time as part of the cryolipolysis process. With this approach in mind, CoolSculpting costs are determined by the area to be treated. The company behind the CoolSculpting system, Zeltiq, reports more than 7.2 million people seek to treat their thighs with this option.
Zeltiq offers an applicator designed to treat the outer thighs, and another device designed to recontour the inner thighs. While the process of eliminating fat cells takes time and results are gradual, it takes just one session to reduce inner thigh fat. This minimizes another factor responsible for CoolSculpting costs: the number of treatments needed.
If you wish to remove more fat, we may need to schedule more sessions. Dr. Gerald Bock and his team at California Skin & Laser Center will discuss your goals to develop a treatment plan that works for you and your budget.
It should also be noted inner thigh lifts are another, related invasive procedure. This surgery involves removing excess skin and lifting remaining skin to recreate a smooth inner leg. Adding to costs associated with the lift is the potential need for lipo to reduce the volume of fat along with the lifting procedure itself. The Mayo Clinic reports healing in the inner thigh area can require extra time, because of friction and moisture in this region. Stitches may separate, necessitating a return trip to the doctor.
CoolSculpting avoids all of the potential side effects and risks as well as the additional expense. It can also provide a contoured shape to an area that doesn’t seem to shrink even with consistent exercise and diet. The natural process of aging and even weight loss can create sagging in the thighs that can’t be corrected with proper nutrition and fitness regimens alone.
We can also treat the sides, abdomen, hips and other areas of stubborn fat during the same session.
