Understanding the Drawbacks of CoolSculpting and other Non-Surgical Liposuction 

In recent years, non-surgical liposuction treatments such as CoolSculpting® and SmartLipo™ have grown in popularity. While less expensive up-front, these treatments are often not as effective as traditional liposuction. Because they can require regular re-treatment, they may even cost patients more over time.

Founded by Drs. Richard Bendor-Samuel and Louis Boileau, the Landings Surgical Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia, is committed to ensuring that every patient receives personalized, discreet, and safe treatment. Our surgeons can answer any questions you may have and help you determine which procedure can best achieve your cosmetic goals.

What Treatments are Considered Non-Surgical Alternatives to Traditional Liposuction? 

There are a number of non-surgical alternatives to liposuction currently available, each working through a different mechanism. Some of the most advertised procedures include: 

  • CoolSculpting: Intended to eliminate fat cells through controlled cooling, the results of this treatment are often much less noticeable than those offered by liposuction. 
  • SmartLipo: Where Coolscupting uses cold temperatures to eliminate fat, SmartLipo melts it away using the heat from a laser. It is typically recommended to treat small areas of fat. 
  • Belkyra®: This synthetic substance is intended to remove a patient's double chin via injection. In many cases, patients will need several treatment sessions to see results. 

Patients are often drawn to these non-surgical methods of fat reduction because of the lack of downtime, up-front costs, or surgical risks. However, none of these services can provide the same high-quality results that patients have come to expect from liposuction

Advantages of Traditional Liposuction 

Liposuction is the preferred treatment for addressing localized fat deposits that do not respond to diet and exercise. It is the only such treatment that can provide reliable results after a single appointment. Above and beyond creating better value, it is also a trusted fat removal service that has gained a reputation for impressive results. Liposuction is also flexible enough that patients can combine it with a number of other body contouring procedures, from fat grafting to breast augmentation

With contributions to research, extensive study, and an outstanding record of successful treatments, our surgeons can provide exceptional results through liposuction that cannot be duplicated with alternative procedures.

Because liposuction requires extensive training and certification, only a highly trained surgeon can perform the procedure. As a result, liposuction is a safe, minimally invasive treatment. In contrast, many newer alternative procedures are often provided by doctors with only minimal training. 

Drs. Bendor-Samuel and Boileau both have over 20 years of experience helping patients achieve their cosmetic goals. Dr. Boileau in particular trained at one of the clinics that played a vital role in the original study and introduction of liposuction as a medical procedure. With contributions to research, extensive study, and an outstanding record of successful treatments, our surgeons can provide exceptional results through liposuction that cannot be duplicated with alternative procedures.
