Coolsculpt & Emsculpt vs Liposuction with J-Plasma: Which Should You Get?

What is J-Plasma? What is Coolsculpting? What is Emsculpt? Everyone wants to look and feel their best. Today, there are no shortage of ways you can alter your look to suit your own personal style and goals. However, for all of the different ways to meet your aesthetic goals, how do you know which is best for you? This is often the case when it comes to procedures aimed at reducing body fat and acquiring a tighter appearance. Traditionally, this has been the realm of the long reigning king of body fat reduction procedures—liposuction. However, some new modalities have taken the cosmetic world by storm by offering some alternatives depending on your needs. Let’s take a look at Coolsculpting and Emsculpting!

What are Coolsculpting and Emsculpt?

Coolsculpting is a fat reduction treatment designed to aid people who have been trying to get rid of that stubborn belly fat. The procedure is FDA-approved and is performed by placing an applicator on the desired area of treatment. It applies a slight suction to enclose the treatment space, and then it blasts the area with a powerful cooling effect. This results in what is scientifically known as cryolipolysis, which means that your fat cells have been frozen over which renders them inactive. From there, the body naturally sets to work recycling them out of your body.
Because of how the procedure is performed, Coolsculpting is a non-invasive procedure which means that it requires no surgical intervention to work as intended. This makes the procedure very appealing to those who wish to lose a portion of body fat without having to undergo a surgical procedure such as liposuction.
Another non-invasive procedure that has gained a lot of attention and critical acclaim is Emsculpt!
If Coolsculpting has gained recognition for body fat reduction, Emsculpting has gotten popular for tightening and toning the remainder.
Emsculpt is a body sculpting procedure that was designed in response to the fact that diet and exercise alone can prove to be difficult in achieving our exact aesthetic goals. While we can all work towards better health and strength through diet and exercise, how our body chooses to respond to exercise stimulus and weight loss is highly individualized.
Emsculpt works by directing electromagnetic energy towards the desired area which forces the muscles there to contract in a manner that you could never achieve through exercise. Muscular contraction during exercise is largely dependent on your neuromuscular ability to contract those muscles. In other words, Emsculpt can forcibly contract those muscles more thoroughly than you could manually—all while you kick back and relax!
At Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery, we often pair Coolsculpting and Emsculpt together because they are a matchmade in Heaven! The Coolsculpting can pare away at the stubborn fat you’ve been wishing to lose while Emsculpt can build and tone the muscles you are targeting to create an effective one-two punch.
That brings us to the purpose of this article, if Coolsculpting and Emsculpt are so effective for many people, what is the purpose of undergoing liposuction? It all depends on where you are at on your aesthetic journey.

Is Liposuction Right for Me?

How much body fat would you like to lose? Simply put, a procedure like Coolsculpting is not very effective for losing large amounts of body fat. Coolsculpting (and Emsculpt) are perfect for those who have already achieved a somewhat slimmed down physique. Don’t worry, you don’t need to be a fitness model to benefit from Coolsculpting or Emsculpt, but if you are carrying a large amount of body fat, then liposuction can be the life changing procedure you have been looking for.
Typically, those seeking liposuction have tried dieting and exercise and can maintain a stable weight, but for a variety of reasons are stuck with a large amount of body fat in a fixed area—such as the abdominal region. It is for these people that liposuction is most effective.
Non-invasive options are wonderful, but at the end of the day, surgical means often offer the most powerful results for those seeking them. At Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery, we pair liposuction with the skin care procedure J-Plasma. So what is J-Plasma?
J-Plasma is often paired with liposuction to tighten and tone the skin in the abdominal region to create the best post-surgery result. J-Plasma utilizes radiofrequency energy along with low temperature helium plasma to stimulate collagen production and renew the skin.

Coolsculpting or Liposuction?

If you are near your ideal weight but are simply not satisfied with your appearance due to your natural genetic fat distribution, Coolsculpting and Emsculpt are a great combination to achieve your desired aesthetic goals. However, for many people, liposuction is the procedure they ould want to go with first, as it can remove a large amount of stubborn belly fat and create the foundation in which procedures like Coolsculpting and Emsculpt work best.
The answer is then why not get both?
Undergoing liposuction, and then coming in for Coolsculpting and Emsculpt treatments at your convenience can prove to be the incredible combination that will produce the most powerful change to your appearance.
