CoolSculpting is a highly innovative non-invasive alternative to cosmetic surgery for patients seeking fat reduction in specific areas of the body. The procedure offers several advantages for busy moms, working people and others who do not want a procedure with a long recovery period or risk of potential complications. At the same time, CoolSculpting is also a much more affordable and cost-effective treatment as compared to surgery.
Dr. Brian J. Parker is a leading plastic surgeon providing a wide range of advanced and innovative surgical and non-surgical procedures. Dr. Parker will recommend CoolSculpting for suitable candidates who are looking to enhance their body contours in a non-invasive way. During the initial consultation, Dr. Parker will discuss all aspects of CoolSculpting, including its estimated stipulated costs. He receives patients from Las Vegas and surrounding communities.
Cost Comparison with Surgery
In comparison to plastic surgery fat reduction procedures such as liposuction, CoolSculpting is significantly more cost-effective and affordable. CoolSculpting does not involve any costs of general anesthesia or IV sedation, which are typically added with a fat reduction surgery. Surgical procedures must be performed by a qualified and experienced surgeon and their support team.
The surgical procedure may be complex and lengthy, requiring detailed advance preparation as well as post-op monitoring and care. This will substantially add to the price tag of the procedure. These dollar amounts are typically avoided in CoolSculpting. A single sitting of CoolSculpting can be over in 30 minutes to an hour, and can be performed as an in-office procedure.
On the other hand, the cosmetic surgeon may perform a fat reduction surgery at an operating facility, which will add to the monetary amount. Dr. Parker provides CoolSculpting and other procedures to patients in Las Vegas and nearby locations.
Factors Affecting the Price Tag
CoolSculpting and your bank account can differ between two practices and even between two patients due to various factors.
Where the Practice is Located
Costs of any aesthetic procedure may be typically higher in leading urban centers than the smaller, interior regions in the country. The dollar amount can be affected by the average financial weight of living in the region, the average real estate costs, and local taxation and other aspects.
Extent of Treatment
The price tag for CoolSculpting can differ between two patients according to the scale of treatment required in a particular area of the body. The cost may be considerably higher to treat areas such as abdomen, buttocks, thighs or back, while smaller areas such as the cheeks, chin, knees or ankles will not set you as far back financially. The total number of treatment sessions needed by a patient will also impact the overall cost.
Average Sticker Price
The dollar amount of CoolSculpting, on average, may range from $600 to $1,500 for a single area. To treat multiple areas involving multiple treatment sessions, the overall cost of the procedure may range anywhere from $3,000 to $5,000, depending on several factors. Most patients will be eligible to have the procedure financed through professional medical care financing firms. Alternatively, they may explore other financing options such as bank loans, family borrowings and credit cards.
