CoolSculpting vs. Liposuction

CoolSculpting vs. Liposuction

Which One is Right For You?

You spend countless hours in the gym and are eating clean, yet you still can’t seem to fit into your clothes. Does this sound familiar? If you answered yes, you’re not alone! As we age, our metabolism starts to slow down (5% every decade after we hit 40), and despite our best efforts, sometimes it seems impossible to slim down. Many individuals look into a surgical or (now) nonsurgical fat reduction procedures to reach their aesthetic goals. There are two prominent fat reduction procedures people consider, CoolSculpting and liposuction. Both remove fat, yet they’re very different experiences.

Non-Invasive vs. Invasive

CoolSculpting and liposuction essential accomplish the same goal (to remove fat), but the journey is much different. The most significant difference being that CoolSculpting is non-invasive, while liposuction is invasive. When determining which option is best, many people consider this to be the most crucial factor.

CoolSculpting is a completely non-invasive procedure that requires no downtime. CoolSculpting utilizes freezing temperatures to eliminate unwanted pockets of fat for good. Due to the treatment being non-invasive means there is no surgery involved, so no need to worry about needles, incisions, or blood.

Liposuction, on the other hand, is invasive and requires surgery. A liposuction procedure requires a cannula (hollow tube) and aspirator (suctioning device) to suction out stubborn fat. Going under the knife means you will need several days to rest and recover.

Fat Removal

When it comes to the amount of fat that can be removed from these two procedures, they differ. CoolSculpting is best for individuals who are within 30 pounds of their ideal weight and are looking to remove stubborn pockets of fat on the body. Because CoolSculpting gets rid of less fat per treatment, patients may need more than one session to get to their ideal body.

Liposuction, on the other hand, is the more aggressive treatment out of the two; thus, a larger volume of fat can be removed in a single session. This procedure is ideal for individuals who have an excessive amount of fat on their bodies.

Risk

It may be evident that because liposuction involves surgery that it is riskier. Yes, this is true; however, that does not mean there are no risks associated with CoolSculpting. Although very little (because CoolSculpting is non-invasive and nonsurgical), some patients may experience minimal side effects, such as some bruising or stinging on the treatment area.

Comparatively, liposuction has many more risks associated with it. Liposuction requires going under anesthesia, and with this comes potential health risks. Like any other surgery, there is always a risk of bleeding and infection. After the surgery, patients may experience severe bruising and inflammation (that can sometimes take months to settle).

Though the holidays can be a time of stress, this is a time to be joyous and relax a bit. There are several ways to minimize it by implementing these simple tips so you can fully enjoy this festive time of year!

 

Five Tips To Help You Stay in Shape This Season

Staying in Shape During the Holidays!

The holiday season is upon us, and we know life can start to get pretty busy with family gatherings, traveling, festive outings, and much more. With all this going on, exercise and healthy eating habits can get pushed to the back burner, and many of us see our waistlines expand (even the most disciplined people). We’ve come up with a list of 5 things you can do to stay on track this holiday season. 

Stay Active

    • It can be hard to find time to go to the gym during the holiday season. However, we all know that to keep the weight off, we have to burn more calories than we consume. It’s essential to keep moving whenever you can find the time. 
    • Here are a few tips to help you stay active during the holiday season:
      1. Traveling for the holidays? If so, take advantage of the ample space in the airport; take a brisk walk through the terminal.
      2. Ditch the elevator! Whenever you have the chance, take the stairs.
      3. When you’re watching TV march or jog in place, and every time there’s a commercial break, make yourself do situps or pushups.
      4. Dance, dance, dance! Dancing is a fantastic way to get your steps in, while also having fun! 

Find a Workout Buddy

    • Motivating yourself to exercise can be tough, but when you have a buddy by your side, it can make working out a lot easier and much more fun!
    • When someone is counting on you to meet up, you’ll find that it is a lot harder to skip the gym. Having the accountability of a friend always keeps you going. 
    • Having someone to work out with makes a big difference in the quality and frequency of your exercise. Ask a friend to join you; you’ll both benefit from it!

Plan ahead

    • Start each day with a game plan; this will help you keep on track and will ease the amount of stress you may be feeling. 
    • If you can, try and work out in the morning, this will jump-start your day and make sure that you don’t get distracted later in the day by holiday parties or other fun festivities. 
    • Avoid skipping meals! Maybe you had too many sweets the night before (we’ve all been there) and want to skip breakfast. However, this is detrimental to your health and may cause overeating later on in the day. Try to plan out your meals evenly throughout the day.

Stay Hydrated

    • From crazy busy schedules to holiday cocktails, it’s essential to make sure you’re drinking enough water during the holiday season. 
    • The holiday season entails friends, family, and booze (lots and lots of booze). To combat these next-day hangovers, make sure you’re drinking enough water. For every drink you have, make sure to pair it with a glass of water. 
    • Food is also a big part of the holiday season, and no one should feel the need to restrict during this time. However, instead of reaching for your second serving of goodies, drink water first. You’ll feel fuller and be hydrated!
    • Bring your reusable water bottle to holiday functions. By doing this, you will always be hydrated! This way you’ll also know how much water you’re consuming in a day – eight glasses a day is recommended.

CoolSculpting

    • Can’t seem to lose those extra inches? It can be frustrating, but CoolSculpting can help with that!
    • CoolSculpting utilizes cooling technology to freeze fat cells while leaving the skin and surrounding tissue unharmed. 
    • For most of us, this is the busiest time of year, and it can be hard to find time to get a full workout in. One of the best things about CoolSculpting is that it’s non-invasive and requires zero downtime, so you are free to get right back to your holiday planning. 
    • If this sounds like something, you’d be interested in, you can come in to BodySquad for a free body assessment and consultation. Provide your information below and we’ll schedule your free assessment.

CoolSculpting and CoolTone – Better Together!

It’s a Perfect Match!

CoolTone is Allergan’s latest addition to the body contouring profile and pairs perfectly with its cousin device, CoolSculpting, to provide both fat reduction and muscle building. CoolSculpting, which has been around for many years, is FDA-approved to freeze away unwanted fat. On the other hand, CoolTone is new to the game and focuses on strengthening, toning, and building muscle. These two devices go together like yin and yang, read on to learn more!

How CoolTone Works

  • Despite having the word “cool” in its name, CoolTone does not utilize freezing temperatures to freeze fat, like its cousin CoolSculpting. Instead, it is intended to strengthen and tone your muscles. 
  • CoolTone works by utilizing a technology called magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS). This technology causes involuntary contractions in your muscles.
  • The technology feels like a slight muscle spasm but is pain-free, and one session is only 30 minutes.
  • The contractions cause the muscles to strengthen, leaving you with a more toned and firmer physique. 
  • CoolTone is FDA-approved to treat areas of the body, such as the stomach, thighs, and buttocks. 

How CoolSculpting Works

  • CoolSculpting, on the other hand, has been around for many years, with over 8 million treatments performed and is recognized as the #1 nonsurgical fat reduction treatment used by doctors. 
  • CoolSculpting utilizes freezing temperatures to eliminate unwanted pockets of fat for good. 
  • The fat cells gradually get cleaned out of the fat layer through your body’s immune cells. The liver metabolizes the cells and then excretes them from the body, leaving you with an overall slimmer physique.  
  • CoolSculpting is FDA-approved to treat areas of the body such as under the chin (double chin), thighs, stomach, flanks, bra fat, back fat, underneath the butt (banana rolls), as well as the upper arms. 

How CoolSculpting and CoolTone Work Together

  • Individually these two technologies are incredibly powerful and have been visibly and scientifically proven to work. 
  • However, when paired together, these two technologies are unlike anything else. The power of body contouring shines through. 
  • It is recommended first to treat unwanted fat with CoolSculpting, then tone the same area with CoolTone. Combining these non-invasive procedures will leave you with faster and even more successful results. 
  • It’s one thing to look good in your clothes, but why not take it a step further and feel good in a swimsuit with not only a flat stomach but also chiseled abs. 

Gone are the days of fad diets and countless hours in the gym to achieve an ideal body image. With the combination of CoolSculpting and CoolTone, your ideal body image is attainable in a much easier and less time-consuming way. BodySquad, located in Boca Raton, is one of the only offices nationwide to offer both of these nonsurgical procedures.

What’s the Difference Between Fat Loss and Weight Loss?

Fat Loss vs. Weight Loss – Yes, There is a Difference!

When trying to slim down, many people track their progress by stepping on the scale. Maybe you were happy by the low number you saw or suddenly became depressed because the number was higher than usual. We’ve all been there at some point, so don’t beat yourself up about it. However, stepping on the scale can be detrimental to your goal. The number on the scale doesn’t tell you much about your health; all it tells you is your relationship with gravity. There is a vast difference between weight loss (to which most people look at) and fat loss, read on to learn why you should be more focused on fat loss than weight loss. 

What is Weight Loss?

  • Weight loss is a decrease in one’s overall body weight, which can include muscle, fat, and water. All in all, weight loss is simply a loss of body weight. 
  • When you lose weight, you are losing more than just fat; you are losing lean body mass and body water. When you only focus on losing weight, you do not get to control how much of each you lose, which can be detrimental. For example, when you lose lean body mass, it directly influences the size of your basal metabolic rate, AKA, your metabolism. 

What is Fat Loss?

  • Fat loss, on the other hand, is a reduction of solely body fat. Most people strive to reduce body fat. 
  • It is important to note that there are two different types of fat in the body. 
    • First, there is essential body fat, which we as humans need. Essential body fat is stored in small amounts in the body’s organs, muscles, bone marrow, and central nervous system. This fat is necessary for good health and to keep the body functioning efficiently. 
    • Second, there is non-essential body fat, (also called excess body fat), which is fat in the body that we do not need. This fat is stored in the adipose tissue, found under the skin, in small amounts in the muscle, and body cavity. Non-essential body fat is the fat we want to lose during fat loss. 

Does Muscle Weigh More Than Fat?

  • It is important to note that muscle has a much higher density than fat, which means that muscle takes up less volume than an equal mass of fat. And this explains why you’re getting slimmer but not dropping in weight (another reason to nix the scale).
  • You’ve probably heard that a pound of muscle weighs more than a pound of fat, but this is false because a pound is a pound. However, a pound of fat takes up four times the space of muscle tissue, which goes back to the notion that you can look and feel slimmer even though your weight remains the same. 
  • Two people may weigh the same but can look very different. For example, Person 1 may have a high percentage of fat, and Person 2 may have a high percentage of muscle. Twenty pounds of fat is going to give Person 1 a softer look while twenty pounds of muscle is going to give Person 2 a more firm and sculpted look. 

The Impact of Too Much Fat on the Body:

  • Research shows that having too much fat, particularly fat around your waist, can raise your risk of serious illness. Furthermore, people with a higher percentage of body fat have a higher overall death rate, regardless of their weight or BMI. 
  • However, if this sounds familiar to you, you’re not alone. Two-thirds of all Americans are overweight, and roughly one-third are obese, creating an unhealthy epidemic in our country.
  • When you carry too much fat, the heart is the most obvious victim. Cholesterol builds up, blood pressure rises, and arteries get clogged. Then, blood loses its ability to clot, which puts people at an increased risk of having a stroke. 
  • Too much fat also triggers diabetes; when there is excess fat in the body, insulin (a hormone in the body) is affected, which can lead to heart disease.
  • Excess fat can increase your risk of many horrible illnesses. Even people that have a low body weight but a poor muscle-to-fat ratio are at risk for developing obesity-related conditions. Again, this is why it is super important to not just focus on weight loss but instead fat loss.

Best Ways to Lose Fat:

  • By now, you may be wondering how to focus on just losing fat. It’s important to note that losing fat is much more specific than losing weight. Your body needs fat, it is crucial for health and longevity and protects your body against starvation when you can’t access food. However, as they say, it’s possible to have too much of a good thing. So excess fat can be detrimental to your overall health, for the reasons stated above. 
  • We have provided what we think are the best ways to go about losing fat vs. losing weight. 
  1. Healthy eating
    • Many people think that food is the enemy in the battle against fat. However, many nutritionists say, some foods increase your metabolism and boost the body’s ability to burn fat. So instead of focusing on the number of calories you’re consuming, it will be more beneficial to focus on the quality of foods your consuming.
    • Your diet should include foods such as:
      • Avocados – although high in fat, it is considered a “healthy fat” and will keep you full, so you are less likely to snack on processed foods later. 
      • Salmon – This fish is packed with more omega-3 fatty acids than any other food and is also low-glycemic, preventing insulin spikes and fat storage around the mid-section. 
      • Nuts – high in protein, low in simple carbs, and rich in healthy fats, nuts stimulate your body’s ability to burn excess fat.
      • Eggs – Studies show that egg-based breakfasts have been proven to reduce hunger and promote feelings of fullness.
      • Leafy Greens – Kale, swiss chard, spinach, and a few others are loaded with fiber and will aid in the process of fat loss. 
    • The foods mentioned are just a few of the many foods that will help in the process of fat loss. Including these foods in your diet will have a significant effect on your overall health.
  •  High resistance workout
    • Fat loss cannot be achieved by diet alone. A high resistance workout will help you gain lean muscle mass, which will increase your metabolism and lead to fat loss.
    • It is essential to switch up the intensity of your workout and not to overdo it every single day. Aim to work out 3-4 times a week, with a mixture of weight training and cardio.
    • It is essential to build and maintain muscle so that our body can burn fat. 
  • CoolSculpting 
  • CoolSculpting, or cryolipolysis, is FDA-approved to eliminate unwanted fat on the body. 
  • CoolSculpting is 100% non-invasive and works by using freezing temperatures to break down fat cells and ultimately get rid of them. It is important to note that the cold temperature does not damage other cells in the way it does fat cells. 
  • CoolSculpting will not aid in weight loss but rather fat loss. This procedure helps sculpt the body in certain areas. Individuals will find that their clothes fit better and look better.  
  • This procedure is perfect for individuals looking to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat that they otherwise cannot with diet and exercise alone.

Why CoolSculpting Works

Why CoolSculpting Works

Freezing fat without surgery or downtime? It sounds too good to be true. However, there is science backing up the revolutionary non-invasive treatment called CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting has become one of the most popular bodysculpting procedures in the cosmetic world, and we’re here to break down the science behind it.

How Popsicles Led to the Discovery of CoolSculpting:
  • Believe it or not, the science of cryolipolysis (A.K.A CoolSculpting) came about after children who ate popsicles formed dimples on their cheeks. 
  • Two scientists at Harvard University, Dr. Rox Anderson and Dr. Dieter Mansetin were very interested in finding out what caused this. They discovered that the cold temperates from the popsicles were eliminating small pockets of fat within children’s’ faces. 
  • From this discovery, the two doctors concluded that fat cells could be targeted with freezing temperatures to induce lipolysis, which is the break down of fat cells.

Behind the Technology:

  • Fat cells are much more sensitive to cold temperatures than surrounding tissue. This is why the temperature at which the cooling takes place is key to the technology. 
  • The device utilizes controlled cooling, cryolipolysis to drop the temperature of the skin down to the point where fat cells become eliminated. 
  • The surface of the skin, as well as the surrounding tissue, is not affected or harmed in any way. This is due to the exact precision of the technology.

Permanent Reduction of Fat Cells:

    • When you diet and exercise, your fat cells shrink, and when you gain weight, they become enlarged. However, with CoolSculpting, the fat cells are eliminated, meaning that they will not return unless there is a significant weight gain of 100lbs or more
       
    • Once the Fat Cells are frozen, they are gone forever and gradually get cleaned out of the fat layer through your body’s immune cells. The liver metabolizes the cells and then excretes them from the body, leaving you with an overall slimmer physique. 
    • The fat cells leave the body within 3-4 months, and you will begin to notice the treated area becoming smoother and tighter.
    • With just one CoolSculpting treatment, you can expect to see up to a 25% reduction in fat. 

There have been thousands of clinical studies as well as hundreds of research articles published that confirm the science and technology behind CoolSculpting to be safe and effective.
