What is the best fat reduction treatment in Colorado Springs, CoolSculpting or Liposuction? The answer depends on your needs.

Best Fat Reduction Treatment: CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is technically known as cryolipolysis (pronounced CRY-o-lie-PAW-luh-sis). This is a non-surgical method to reduce fat. The results are not immediate. It takes up to 3-4 months to begin to see the results. Also, you may need more than one session to treat one area to achieve the best results. So if you’re trying to save money, you may end up paying more than if you just had liposuction from the get-go. Cryolipolysis can reduce your fat layer by up to 20-25% (which is only 1/4 to 1/2 of what liposuction can do)! If you’re looking for treatment of small, focal fat pockets, cryolipolyis may be the solution for you.

Best Fat Reduction Treatment: Liposuction

Liposuction is a surgical procedure. The results are immediate. Liposuction reduces your fat layer anywhere from 50-80%. Technically, liposuction can reduce your fat layer by 100%, but that would NOT look good. The only places on the body that look good with minimal to no fat between the skin and your underlying muscle are the top of your hands, the top of your feet, and your forehead. A thin layer of fat provides a soft, natural look, even with athletic physiques. So, if you’re looking for more fat removal in a single session and over a larger percentage of your body, liposuction is the way to go.

Additionally, Dr. Geers and her team will employ a variety of techniques to keep you relaxed and comfortable during your procedure while you are completely awake and in control of your senses. If you prefer, however, Dr. Geers can also perform your Colorado Springs liposuction under general anesthesia. During your consultation, Dr. Geers will help you decide which type of anesthesia is best for you. Furthermore, Dr. Geers is one of the few Board Certified Plastic Surgeons in Colorado Springs offering VASER Liposuction also known as VASERLipo.
