SmartLipo™, VASER® LipoSelection, and Body-Jet Liposuction vs. CoolSculpting® and SculpSure™
Many people are hearing about focused fat reduction treatments from technologies such as CoolSculpting® and SculpSure™ and want to know how they compare to SmartLipo™, VASER® LipoSelection, and Body-Jet Liposuction.
CoolSculpting® and SculpSure™ treatments freeze or liquefy fat cells from outside the body. SmartLipo™, VASER® LipoSelection, and Body-Jet Liposuction remove the fat directly from underneath the skin.
Dr. Falcone’s advanced liposuction methods will provide far more impressive single treatment results than CoolSculpting® and SculpSure™. Especially for patients who have a significant amount of fat to remove, such as patients with a Body Mass Index over 30.
Many patients with a BMI over 30 who are treated with SculpSure™ or CoolSculpting® require multiple treatment sessions to achieve results that are less than what could be achieved in one SmartLipo™. VASER® LipoSelection or Body-Jet Liposuction treatment.
In addition, SculpSure™ and CoolSculpting® cannot contour body areas such as thighs and arms. Nor can you reduce a large fat pocket in one treatment.
CoolSculpting® and SculpSure™ can work for patients who have a BMI (Body Mass Index) of less than 30 and focused pockets of fat. The cost is approximately $300 to $400 per applicator with each applicator being approximately the size of a stick of butter. This is all sounds good….except for the fact that the average abdomen would require 6 to 8 applicators, and this would only reduce fat in the abdomen area by approximately 15%.
So, each SculpSure™ or CoolSculpting® session could be $2000 to $3600. If need more than one session, the total cost could be more than what would have been spent for a definitive advanced liposuction procedure with Dr. Falcone.
If you are considering SculpSure™ or CoolSculpting®, you should have an advanced liposuction consultation with Dr. Falcone first. She can advise you of all of your options, and you can make an informed decision about the best option for your body and budget.
