What is Body Contouring?
Our body contouring treatments are noninvasive, offering an alternative to liposuction or plastic surgery procedures. Body contouring focuses on tightening the skin and eliminating pockets of stubborn fat to reveal a slimmer, smoother contour.
Body Contouring Candidates
Body contouring is an effective option for those who are within their idea weight range but experience poor body contour due to lax skin or stubborn fat. Candidates should only choose body contouring treatment when diet and exercise fail to give results. Treatment can benefit those who have mild lax skin and stubborn fat that might be due to pregnancy, weight loss, age, or other factors. More severe body contouring concerns might require a different course of treatment.
The body contouring procedure might involve one or a combination of the following treatments:
Laser Contouring: Using radiofrequency technology, laser contouring can tighten loose skin by stimulating new collagen growth. This results in less sagging and wrinkles to give a slimmer, more youthful appearance.
Lipodissolve: Lipodissolve is an effective alternative to liposuction. The injectable treatment uses the naturally occurring substance, phosphatidylcholine, to aid in the break down of fat. When injected into areas of stubborn fat, the formula helps to achieve a slimmer contour.
Recovery and Results
There is little to no recovery required after body contouring treatment. Many patients can experience improved contour after just one treatment session, however, a series of spaced out sessions are typically recommended for optimal results. Results can be long-lasting if patients maintain a healthy diet and exercise to avoid future weight gain.
