CoolSculpting CoolMini vs. Liposuction for Your Double Chin

By Shanna

It’s present in every group photo of your fun nights out – your dreaded double chin. You try so hard to diminish its appearance whenever you take selfies. Sometimes you may even resort to taking matters into your own hands with the latest image editing apps. If you’re tired of being self-conscious of your double chin, The Lifestyle Center is here to help with CoolSculpting CoolMini and traditional liposuction!

Many of our patients ask us which procedure is better when it comes to eliminating a double chin. Usually, our answer is that it depends on what your cosmetic goals are. Although we will determine which is better for you during your consultation, have a sneak peek here to see which might be the right choice for you:

You Really Don’t Want to Go Under the Knife: CoolSculpting

Even though liposuction performed with Tickle Lipo is a minimally-invasive procedure, it may not be ideal for patients who are anxious about undergoing any type of surgery. CoolMini, on the other hand, reduces unwanted submental (double chin) fat and can also contour the neck without surgery. Fat cells are eliminated noninvasively, thanks to the power of controlled cooling! In addition, with a series of two treatments, CoolSculpting has been shown to achieve dramatic skin tightening – up to 74%!

You’re Looking for a One-and-Done Solution: Liposuction

If time isn’t on your side or you don’t want to return for additional treatments, then Tickle Lipo may be right for you. Even though you will have a few days of downtime, traditional liposuction will ultimately save you time since it’s a one-time procedure.

You Want to Get Back to Your Life ASAP: CoolSculpting

Can’t take a few days off to recover from your treatment? You don’t have to worry about it when you choose CoolSculpting. It’s a no-downtime procedure, so you can resume your normal activities immediately following treatment! Unlike liposuction in which patients need to wear a compression garment, CoolSculpting with the CoolMini allows you to get back to your life right away. You may experience a few minor side effects including mild numbness and tingling, but they will resolve shortly and on their own!

When to Expect to See Final Results

Whether choosing liposuction or CoolMini, it can take several months for your neck to reach its final results due to delays in the tightening effects of these procedures and the absorption of dead fat cells or resolution of swelling. When combined with Z Wave, CoolSculpting has been shown to increase overall fat destruction by up to 50% at one month after treatment.
