70% Worth It Rating Based on 3597 reviews.

Average cost: USD 2,425 / Treatment Area.

Google average searches for 'cool sculpting': 500,000/month (global).

CoolSculpting is a treatment to freeze and destroy fat cells. The dead fat cells are then metabolized and naturally removed by the body.

In CoolSculpting (a fat freezing method or also known as cryolipolysis), a handheld device suctions fat to just under the surface of the skin where it’s then frozen and destroyed.

It’s common to have one to two treatments per area that take about 35–60 minutes each. Average results can include a 20–25% reduction of fat in the treated area. Typically, two cycles per area are necessary for best results.

Vaser liposuction, or LipoSelection, is a form of minimally invasive assisted liposuction that uses ultrasonic energy to liquefy fat cells, which are then removed through a cannula. This technique makes the fat easier to remove and may be especially useful in areas with larger volumes or denser fat. It also results in a less-aggressive procedure, which may lead to faster recovery times. This method does pose a risk for burns, and as with traditional liposuction, it's not intended to significantly reduce weight, but to address fat that is resistant to diet and exercise.

Ultrasonic energy is more selective at targeting fat, preventing damage to nerves, blood cells, and connective tissues. It may be helpful in treating bumps from a previous procedure.


#4. SMART LIPO - Surgical

Best for a small to moderate amount of belly fat.


86% Worth It Rating Based on 2600 Reviews.

Average cost: USD 5,225 / Treatment Area.

Google average searches for 'smart lipo': 50,000/month (global).

Smart Lipo, sometimes called laser-assisted liposuction, is a form of minimally invasive liposuction that uses a high-energy laser within the cannula to liquefy fat.

Liquefied fat is easier to remove, which may lead to a faster recovery time. A benefit of Smart Lipo over traditional liposuction is that the heat of the laser may also help promote skin tightening.


#5. LIPOSUCTION - Surgical

Best for a small to moderate amount of belly fat.


87% Worth It Rating Based on 7822 Reviews

Average Cost: USD 6,050 / Treatment Area

Google average searches for 'liposuction': 500,000/month (global).

Liposuction removes unwanted fat cells from areas of the body. A plastic surgeon will make tiny incisions in discrete areas, insert small tubes called cannulas into the fatty tissue, and then suction fat out of the body.

Liposuction will remove the largest amount of fat compared with other fat reduction treatments. Most people see final results in three to six months.

Liposuction is an outpatient procedure that usually takes just an hour or two, depending on how many areas you’re getting done.

You’ll have either local (for a small area) or general anesthesia. Either way, make sure you have someone to drive you home afterward.

For tumescent liposuction, the most common technique, your doctor injects a mixture of saline (salt water), local anesthesia, and epinephrine into your tissue. This constricts your blood vessels and reduces bruising, blood loss, and recovery time.
