Back in 2012, we proudly introduced CoolSculpting® as a non-surgical alternative to liposuction at our Albany practice. In the years since then, the buzz over this treatment has only increased. Most recently, CoolSculpting saw an 18.7 percent increase in popularity from 2014 to 2015, as reported by The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).
With all that attention comes plenty of questions, from “Does it really work?” to “Should I get liposuction or CoolSculpting?” Probably the most common question, though, has got to be, “How much does it cost?”
According to the ASAPS, Americans opting for CoolSculpting treatment in 2015 spent about $1,444 on average.
Here at the Plastic Surgery Group, the cost for CoolSculpting is $750 per area with discounts available when multiple areas are treated. We also frequently offer CoolSculpting packages to lessen the cost. Keep in mind, your final cost will depend on how many cycles are necessary to help you reach your goal.
Aside from discounts, there are also CoolSculpting savings that may not be so obvious to you. To name a few:
- Because there’s no surgery, there’s no recovery time, and that means you don’t need to take valuable time off work.
- Also, if you are like many people who spend extra money on undergarments and accessories to expertly hide lumps and bumps, you will be able to shed these extra layers.
- Finally, think of CoolSculpting as an investment. You are investing in your self-esteem and ability to look and feel your best. This kind of payback is intangible and hard to measure, but for many, it’s more than worth it.
You should also remember that cost isn’t a top priority when it comes to your body and your health. Be wary of offers that sound too good to be true. And always seek a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon to ensure you are in the best hands.
