Due to his expertise in nonsurgical fat reduction, Coolspa founder Dr. David Rapaport has been invited to speak on the topic of Coolscupting versus liposuction at the national meeting of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons to be held in Boston this October. As a physician who’s already overseen 5000 Coolsculpting treatments for patients at Coolspa, with approximately 100 of those patients also having experienced liposuction, Dr. Rapaport is specially qualified to comment on the benefits of these two procedures. His findings show that not only is Coolsculpting an increasingly popular, effective fat-removal technique, but also that the growth of Coolsculpting is making more people interested in liposuction. As patients see the benefits of one treatment option, they may have their eyes opened to the other.
Known for its ability to reduce fatty bulges through a revolutionary cooling technique, Coolsculpting is a procedure that quickly and permanently kills fat cells to improve a patient’s appearance. It is FDA-cleared, completely noninvasive and highly effective. Additionally, the growing popularity of Coolsculpting has started showing patients the benefits available from a different procedure, liposuction, also designed to sculpt away fat. While, unlike Coolsculpting, liposuction is a surgical procedure, it is a surgical procedure that requires minimal downtime and leaves only tiny scarring, making it ideal for many patients. Completed under light sedation, it leaves an individual with little to no memory of the procedure itself and can be completed in just one single treatment. For these reasons, liposuction also has a lot to offer a patient who is looking for a good body-contouring option that works. At next month’s meeting, Dr. Rapaport will be discussing this, as well as the advantages of Coolsculpting; additionally, he is preparing to publish the results of his findings in terms of liposuction and Coolsculpting in a formal survey.
