Confused about Body Contouring Choices?

Confused about Body Contouring Choices?

You keep seeing and hearing the words Body Sculpting but what exactly does that mean? Essentially it is a category of noninvasive cosmetic treatments or fat-reduction procedures which can be done in-office with minimal downtime.  The results are wonderful and beauty seekers overwhelming prefer this over surgical solutions.

It is terrific to have a plethora of choices, although not all treatments are made equal and not all procedures are right for every issue and person. It is best to educate yourself for which one is best for your body, health, and wallet.

Body contouring is not a replacement for healthy eating and smart weight loss.  Losing weight reduces the size of your fat cells, it does not remove them. That being said, these procedures are a wonder at removing unwanted trouble spots that weight loss and exercise haven’t fixed. We all have those hated spots…muffin tops, turkey neck, jelly belly.

The best candidates would be:

  • Adults whose weight loss has stabilized
  • Healthy individuals without medical conditions
  • Nonsmokers
  • Individuals with a positive outlook and realistic goals
  • Individuals that are committed to leading a healthy lifestyle with proper nutrition and fitness

CoolSculpting is the world’s #1 non-invasive fat reduction procedure. It is a fat-freezing technique that actually reduces the number of fat cells in treated areas by about 20% to 25%. They are then naturally processed and eliminated, so they won’t migrate to another area of your body. There is also no change to fat cells in untreated areas, just those you target.

 

Emsculpt is an FDA-approved, non-invasive, electromagnetic procedure that claims to eliminate fat cells and tighten muscles while you sit back and relax. It emits electromagnetic pulses that strengthen your muscle fibers and burn unwanted fat by forcing your muscles to contract about 20,000 times in just 30 minutes.

The Cellfina System treats the primary structural cause of cellulite. Jokingly referred to as cottage cheese on your thighs, these are the connective bands woven throughout fat in the thighs and buttocks. These tight bands pull down the skin, creating the puckering you see on the surface of the skin. Similar to a rubber band under tension, once released, the treated skin bounces back to smooth itself out in as little as three days. This one-time cellulite treatment is performed at a doctor’s office in less than an hour.

Smartlipo, also referred to as laser-assisted lipolysis, is a minimally invasive, non-surgical body contouring treatment that is performed under local anesthesia and requires less than one hour to complete. Smartlipo uses laser energy to remove body fat while promoting tissue healing and skin tightening and is done in our office.

Understand, you will not be an overnight sensation. Most procedures take at least six weeks to show changes with one or more sessions and full results materialize in two to three months, so a little planning is essential. Some of our treatments work for hard-to-reach body parts better than others, while some are more effective for specific areas. Are you looking for fat reduction?  Skin Tightening? Muscle Enhancing?

The best option to sort through your choices is to come in and speak with our doctor. We will evaluate your general health, examine your body, take detailed measurements, and discuss your options, recommend a course of treatment and likely outcome.  There is nothing like a guided, educated decision to be sure you are fully informed.

We know you have questions, come to us for answers.
