Which is better: Liposuction or SculpSure™ Nonsurgical Fat Reduction?

Having to pick between liposuction and new SculpSure™ nonsurgical fat reduction is like asking a parent to choose which of their two children are better – they’re equally as awesome, just in their own unique ways. It has long been a belief of mine that the more options you can give patients, the better they’ll feel about the procedure and how they’re going to get the results they most desire. When choosing between a surgical and a nonsurgical body contouring procedure like liposuction and SculpSure™, there are clear differences in how they each treat areas of concern, but at the very core, they both help patients address underlying fat. If you want to attain a more sculpted and toned body, deciding between these two body procedures can be daunting, but we want to break down some key points of each to help you decide which fat reduction treatment is best for you.

For means of body contouring, and specifically addressing localized pockets of stubborn diet- and exercise-resistant fat, liposuction has been the go to treatment for hundreds of thousands of patients each year. On one hand liposuction is a surgical procedure, meaning there is a little bit more downtime needed for recovery (versus a SculpSure™ treatment) but on the other hand it’s a safe and highly effective procedure that’s been around for many decades and utilized in other cosmetic plastic surgery procedures like fat transfer.

Nonsurgical fat reduction systems have only been around in the past decade, but there hadn’t been an updated, or as effective of a system, until now. SculpSure™ is the newest nonsurgical fat reduction technology that puts those outdated systems to shame because it provides better results, takes less than 25 minutes per treatment, and is at a fraction of the cost of other nonsurgical systems. This technology is FDA-approved and works by targeting fat cells deep below the skin’s layers. Unlike older systems that use extreme cold to freeze fat, SculpSure™ uses gentle heating and four customizable flat plates to produce liposuction-like results for patients.

Other notable benefits of both liposuction and SculpSure™ include:

Gift Guide for Surgical & Nonsurgical Cosmetic Treatments

Sometimes we can put a lot of pressure on ourselves to find “the perfect gift.” We don’t want to give someone a sweater that’ll end up buried in the bottom of a dresser or a piece of artwork that ends up at next year’s annual yard sale but for someone you feel has it all, what’s left to give? Each month we hand select special savings on a variety of treatments that patients choose to help relax, pamper their skin, and restore their body. This month, since we are celebrating moms everywhere, the Southern Plastic Surgery (SPS) team thought a gift guide for surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic treatments might come in handy when figuring out what will make the special person in your life most happy.

Nonsurgical Cosmetic Treatments

Of the nonsurgical cosmetic treatments on today’s market, two treatments that rank as two of the most popular go to facial fillers and nonsurgical fat reduction. Between SPS and Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center, we offer patients a plethora of FDA-approved anti-aging facial fillers that focus on specific areas of concern that contribute to patients looking tired, skeletal, or older than they actually are (some focus on sagging cheeks, others focus on deep wrinkles on the forehead, and there are others that focus on plumping the lips).

SculpSure™ new nonsurgical fat reduction (as recently seen in Harper’s Bazaar and Best Self Magazine, and also one of our featured procedures for May) combats the same trouble zones that were once only treatable with liposuction. This latest FDA-approved fat reduction technology system beats other currently outdated systems because it provides better results in less time (only 25 minutes per treatment), at a fraction of the cost. Commonly treated areas include love handles, thighs, and abdomen and best of all, no downtime is needed so SculpSure™ patients are back to their regular routines once they’re all done.

Surgical Plastic Surgery

Gifting plastic surgery is a trend we’re starting to see more of as cosmetic plastic surgery continues to grow in affordability and popularity. It’s not necessarily a matter of knowing exactly what a person would want to have performed but more about giving them the means to choose. Two procedures that are performed at Southern Plastic Surgery that let women choose their preferences are the Mommy makeover and Grammy makeover. Mommy makeovers include a combination of breast enhancement (breast augmentation, breast lift, and breast reduction) and body contouring procedures (liposuction and tummy tuck) to restore the physical effects of pregnancy, childbirth, breast feeding, and natural aging. A Grammy makeover goes a step further to include hand and facial rejuvenation (like facelift, browlift, cosmetic injectables, etc.). You can think of these procedures as an a-la-carte type of cosmetic procedure that let’s mom, or grammy, focus on the areas they most want to improve, in one fell swoop.

Gift Certificates

If you still feel like finding an ideal gift for mom is hard, gift certificates are a great way to let the gift receiver pick what they want the most for themselves. Whether gifting plastic surgery at Southern Plastic Surgery or selecting one of our skincare treatments at Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center, our gift certificates will make sure everyone gets exactly what they want.

Can’t make it to the SculpSure™ Open House Event but have friends who want to find out about SculpSure™, the most recent non-invasive fat reduction technology? Give us a call and ask Jackie Madison about scheduling a SculpSure™ Party for at least 10 of your family and friends to enjoy, including treatment demonstrations, refreshments, and more (plus, as the host or hostess, you’ll receive a special gift and discount as well)!

For details on the May savings we’re featuring at SPS and Laser Lights, check out our flyers for more.  Don’t hesitate to give us a call at 770-622-9100 if you have any questions about our specials, events, or would like to schedule a complimentary consultation or Laser Lights appointment. We wish everyone a great month ahead!

For the Woman & the Mom in You

Mother’s Day may not officially be here for another month but at Southern Plastic Surgery (SPS), we like to celebrate women year round. Each month, we feature nonsurgical and surgical cosmetic procedures hand selected to treat a wide-range of concerns that women of all ages can experience. From the mother of three who’s reclaiming her pre-baby body, to the college senior who wished for clear skin as their graduation gift, or the triathlete who’s ready to ditch the razors with the help of laser hair removal, we’ve got something for just about everyone. To treat the woman and the mom in you, check out our April specials at SPS and Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center:

tummy tuck atlanta Mommy Makeover Special

  • $500 OFF Mommy Makeover Procedures
  • A Mommy Makeover is an a-la-carte type of combination plastic surgery procedure. Consisting of breast enhancement (augmentation and/or lift) and some type of body contouring procedure (like liposuction or tummy tuck), a Mommy Makeover reverses common physical changes that women experience after childbirth, from natural aging, or significant weight gain/loss. Don’t let the name fool you though, Mommy Makeovers are for women of all ages, with or without children.

Nonsurgical Fat Reduction Special

  • $200 OFF four-applicator treatments (Orig. $500 per applicator; special pricing is $1800 for four applicators. Limit 1 treatment session per patient.)
  • SculpSure™ nonsurgical fat reduction is a real game changer. Not only can you achieve liposuction-type results in 25 minutes, but also get to skip the extensive downtime and scarring typically associated with any surgical procedure. Outdated fat reduction technology purported ice was the way to reduce unwanted, stubborn pockets of fat, but the ice ages are honestly no match for the heat SculpSure™ packs – to actually produce visible results. The FDA has given SculpSure™ nonsurgical fat reduction their stamp of approval for its safety and performance and we have no doubt our patients will agree once they’ve tried it for themselves.
