Which type of body contouring is most effective?

I am thinking about getting some body contouring done and I was wondering what opinions on the different types of body contouring systems were? Which seem most effective? Is RF better than Coolsculpting? Why?

Thanks.

Thank you for your question. The type of body contouring option depends on personal needs. For example: Radio Frequency is for skin tightening and coolsculpting is more for fat removal. It is best to have a consultation for a proper evaluation. Each person is different and has individual needs. Good luck!

There are really only 3 methods of body contouring. First is surgical reduction. This is necessary when there is excess skin as well as excess fat. Localized fat can be removed by liposuction. Although there are a number of liposuction techniques, they are all essentially equal depending on the surgeon doing the liposuction. This is why it is so important to choose an experienced board certified plastic surgeon for liposuction. The third method is non invasive fat reduction. Again, there are a number of technologies that claim to do this. However, there are only two that have been proven to consistently reduce fat effectively. These are CoolSculpting and Zerona. I personally prefer Zerona since it is totally painless. The only way to determine what is best for you is a personal consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon.

Without knowing your body type (amount of fat, skin quality, expectations, etc), is is hard to offer advice. No one device has been proven to be superior to the others. In selected patients, Cool Sculpting seems to have nice results but for many people, liposuction can do better. An in person evaluation would be the best way to start and learn more.
