Let’s be honest, you have thought numerous times about summer and how you are going to rock that bathing suit at the beach or pool party. After all, that is what New Year’s Resolutions are for – to get you ready for summer!

Fast forward to Memorial Day – uh oh! When was the last time you actually used that gym membership? Don’t feel bad – we are all in the same boat! The good news is the evolution of plastic surgery procedures has come so far that we can still be ready for that new bikini debut.

Liposuction and CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting has revolutionized fat reduction surgery by contouring your body using freezing techniques. No cutting, no needles, no downtime! It actually diminishes the size of your fat cells and within 3 weeks you can see results! And while I know we are focused on our bikini bods, let’s not forget our face – this works on that pesky double chin too!

You can always go to the traditional liposuction too – this will take a little longer to plan and recover but we know it works! Liposuction will certainly give you that look you were craving (no pun intended). You can pretty much have it done anywhere and after one surgery, you are good to go!

Whatever you decide is right for you – always make sure you do your homework and research the doctors. Look for certifications and always read testimonials of people that have used that doctor for that exact procedure. You don’t want to make this big decision and then regret your doctor choice. 20-30% of the fat cells are killed per cool sculpting treatment. Where as 70-80% of the fat cells are removed with liposuction treatment. So it takes a few treatments to get the same result, but cool sculpting is a “lunch break” intervention where most people go back to work after an hour long treatment.
