You know you want to get rid of some stubborn fat, but should you look into liposuction or Coolsculpting®? Both of these treatments fall into the category of body sculpting, but liposuction is a surgical procedure and Coolsculpting is non-surgical.

So, of course, we would all prefer to go the non-surgical route, right? However, not all fat removal can be done effectively without surgery, and there are other reasons to go the lipo route, as we found out from Dr. Peter Capizzi and the team at CAPIZZI MD on East Blvd. in Dilworth.

Find out which one is right for you at the upcoming Coolsculpting Event at Capizzi MD ~ where you’ll get a FREE COMPLIMENTARY consultation plus a discount on your Coolsculpting procedure. Mark your calendar and RSVP now.

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure that uses a vacuum applicator to localize and freeze fat cells, which once frozen, then die and are removed from your body naturally. Using CoolSculpting® can reduce fat in the upper arms, abdomen, and thighs. The applicator works like a spot area “treater”, so it is best used to eliminate relatively small areas of fat. It’s often the best if you are already fit and looking to get rid stubborn fat spots that you haven’t been able to eliminate with diet and exercise.


If you are looking to remove a significant amount of fat, or need more dramatic body contouring, liposuction is most likely your best option. It also offers more immediate results ~ while Coolsculpting takes a few weeks for results to show and patients often need more than one treatment to see their goals met, Liposuction results can be seen immediately and often improve over time. In addition, the fat removed via lipo can be grafted in other areas of your body where you’d like a bit more plumping, like your cheeks or breasts.


The best way to know what procedure will best meet your needs and goals is to go in for a one-on-one consultation. You can schedule your consult with Dr. Capizzi by filling out their consultation form or call their office at 704-655-8988.

Or you can swing by the office during their Coolsculpting Event from September 23 thru 26 for a free consult. This is a perfect way to find out more about what would work for you. Don’t forget to tell them scoop sent you!
