Liposuction, CoolSculpting®, Tummy Tuck: Which Procedure is Right for You?

When it comes to addressing stubborn fat in the stomach, there are many body contouring options available. The right procedure for you will depend on many factors, including your desired results and the types of treatment techniques you are comfortable with. Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center is proud to offer these and other treatments to residents of Green, Beachwood, Akron and the nearby areas of Ohio.

For Patients Who Would Like to Avoid Surgery

Surgery can be intimidating, so many patients would like to avoid this while still achieving body-contouring results. Fortunately, CoolSculpting® offers a completely non-surgical and non-invasive body contouring treatment by freezing and destroying fat cells from the skin’s surface. Multiple treatments are often necessary, but this technique provides fat reduction benefits without the scarring, downtime and recovery associated with other treatments.

For Patients Who Want Dramatic Improvements

A tummy tuck provides some of the most impressive body contouring results, creating a toned, firm abdomen. This is a great procedure for patients who are trying to achieve significant improvements in their figure. However, it requires more extensive surgery. Tummy tuck procedures remove fat, eliminate excess skin, and tighten the abdominal muscles to produce results.

For Patients Somewhere In Between

If you are comfortable with surgery but do not need the full tummy tuck procedure, then liposuction may be the best option for you. Liposuction is a versatile technique that can remove fat from nearly anywhere on the body. The benefit of using it for the abdominal area is that it can be used in multiple spots to sculpt the body while minimizing the size and visibility of scarring. Liposuction can also produce impressive body contouring results, but unlike a tummy tuck, it does not eliminate excess skin.
