Liposuction, CoolSculpting, SculpSure

Somebody tell me what the best way to lose my love handles! There are so many options and I don't know what is the right thing to do.

CoolSculpting and Sculpture are comparable. Coolsculpting freezes fat, which is then removed by the body, while Sculpsure uses a laser to liquify fat, which is then removed by the body. I had Coolsculpting performed under my chin and found it to be mildly effective. What I did not like about CoolSculpting, was the cost ($1500), the number of sessions I had to have (4) and the amount of time each session took (an hour). I have heard that Sculpsure only requires a single session and is not as expensive, but don't quote me on that. I'm sure someone on this forum has had an experience with Sculpsure, so I'll let them speak about that. 

I have had several friends who are cosmetic surgeons tell me liposuction works far better and is much cheaper than any of these non-invasive treatments, but most people are afraid of having an invasive procedures. 

 

Edit: Since I posted this on an early thread, I've had several friends tell me they were quite satisfied with CoolSculpting and would highly recommend it. 

Interesting.  I would lean towards SculpSure over CoolSculpting since it only requires one session.  I do not have time to go four times to the office, I'm too busy being a mommy :)

I've had Coolsculpting and was happy with it. It's not a miracle but it's a relatively painless way to remove a little bit of excess fat from your love handles. The only thing that somewhat annoyed me, was that I had to go back for multiple sessions. It's also not cheap ($6300). I was also a little numb around my waist between sessions too, which felt weird but wasn't painful. I would recommend CoolSculpting has a good way to reduce fat from your side areas.

In my opinion it beats liposuction and I don't have any experience with Sculpsure, so I can't speak to that.
