Non-Invasive Liposuction: the Best Alternative to Surgery

Posted at:


The pursuit of the perfect body and the elimination of unwanted fat are common concerns nowadays. Liposuction has been a popular option for those wishing to remove localized fat, but the invasive surgery and recovery period can be challenging for some people. Fortunately, there is a promising alternative known as Coolsculpting, which offers a non-invasive and highly effective approach to fat reduction. It is, in fact, one of the most effective treatments for localized fat loss worldwide.

Because it is a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure and is as effective in reducing localized fat as Liposuction, it is commonly known as Non-Invasive Liposuction or Non-Invasive Lipo.

Coolsculpting: the best alternative to liposuction

Coolsculpting is an innovative procedure that uses controlled cooling to eliminate localized fat. This is a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment, which means there are no cuts, needles, or anesthesia involved. Instead, Coolsculpting uses cold temperatures to freeze fat cells, which are then naturally eliminated by the body over time.

Coolsculpting is the name of the procedure by Allergan, which uses advanced machinery and technology to perform cryolipolysis in a much safer and more effective way than common cryolipolysis treatments found in most aesthetic clinics.

Coolsculpting is the only cryolipolysis treatment in the world with FDA (Food & Drug Administration) approval, scientifically proven, and with over 8 million treatments performed worldwide.

The great advantage of this treatment is that results can be achieved in just one session, without risks or complications.

Check out our Coolsculpting Before and After page, which includes several cases of patients who underwent only 1 session of the treatment.

Why opt for non-invasive liposuction?

Coolsculpting has several advantages over surgical liposuction, namely:

  • 100% Non-invasive Procedure: Coolsculpting is a non-surgical treatment, which means it doesn’t carry the risks associated with surgery or potential side effects related to general anesthesia (there is no anesthesia involved in Coolsculpting).
  • No Recovery Time and No Pain: Unlike surgical liposuction, which requires a significant recovery period, Coolsculpting allows patients to resume their normal activities immediately after the procedure. There’s no need for extended rest or time off work. Additionally, this is a completely painless treatment. It employs only controlled cold through an advanced control and monitoring system, so you may feel localized cold at the beginning of the treatment for about 8 minutes, but it’s never painful.
  • No Complications and Side Effects: While surgical liposuction involves risks such as infections, blood clots, bruising, and skin irregularities, Coolsculpting is safe and doesn’t have these types of complications. The side effects of Coolsculpting are minimal and usually only include temporary redness, mild swelling, or sensitivity in the treated area.
  • Natural Results: With Coolsculpting, the results are natural and progressive. As the fat cells destroyed in the procedure are gradually eliminated by the body over several weeks, the final result appears subtly and very naturally, without abrupt changes in your appearance.
  • Versatility in Treatment Area: Coolsculpting can be applied to various areas of the body, including abdomen, flanks, thighs, arms, double chin, bra fat, knees, etc. This allows for the treatment of different problem areas and achieves personalized results according to the individual needs of the patient.

Price of Non-Invasive Liposuction

Each cycle of non-invasive liposuction / Coolsculpting has a reference value of €500. However, the final price may vary from case to case and according to several factors, namely:

  1. Treatment Area(s):

The price of Coolsculpting can vary based on the area(s) of the body to be treated. Different areas may require a different number of applicators and treatment time. Generally, the larger the treated area, the higher the investment required. The number of sessions required can also affect costs.

  1. Case Complexity:

The complexity of the case can also influence the price, as the higher the number of sessions, the higher the price. However, one of the major distinguishing factors of Coolsculpting is that, due to its effectiveness, the number of sessions required is much lower than with other treatments for localized fat loss. Usually, one session is sufficient.

  1. Combination of Treatments:

In some cases, Coolsculpting may be combined with other aesthetic medicine treatments to maximize results. Opting for a combination of treatments will also impact the total value of the treatments.

Therefore, to determine the total budget for your case, a personal evaluation with the Coolsculpting specialist is always recommended. You can schedule a free evaluation (below on this page) at Living Clinic (Avenida da Boavista, Porto).

Risks of Non-Invasive Liposuction

Since it is a non-invasive treatment, the risks are low.

The most common effects to report are temporary alteration of sensitivity in the treated area and a whitish appearance caused by the cold, which usually disappear after a few days.

A very rare effect is hyperplasia, in which there is an increase in localized fat mass instead of its reduction. If there is evidence of this phenomenon, Allergan itself is informed and activates its insurance, which includes localized liposuction.

Contraindications of Non-Invasive Liposuction

Patients who have cold allergies, cryoglobulinemia, umbilical hernias, coagulation disorders, pregnant women, and lactating women are not suitable candidates for Coolsculpting.

How many sessions are required?

As we mentioned earlier, one of the major distinguishing factors of Coolsculpting is that, due to its effectiveness, the number of sessions required is much lower than with other treatments for localized fat loss. Usually, one session per area to be treated is sufficient.
