Body Contouring Q & A

What is Body Contouring?

Body contouring offers patients a non-surgical way to eliminate stubborn deposits of fat. The body contouring system heats the extra fat layers but leaves the surrounding tissue intact. This means that there is no harm to the rest of the body and that the excess fat can be removed without surgery. The fat cells are then liquified, and can be eliminated from the body naturally. Since the fat cells have actually been destroyed, they won't return. This is a long-term procedure

Who is Body Contouring Right For?

Body contouring is usually best for anyone who is already at or fairly close to their desired weight. The body contouring is meant to enhance the body and deal with trouble areas. However, it is not meant to be a substitute for bariatric surgery or any other major type of weight loss. People who opt for body contouring are usually those who have problem areas that just won't go away, no matter how much that they exercise or diet. People who opt for body contouring must be at least 18 years of age and must be finished with their development.

How Long Does Body Contouring Take to Work?

It depends on the person, but most people start to see changes in the weeks after the treatment. The change is not immediate like liposuction is. Instead, it is a gradual change that occurs as the fat flushes itself out of the body. For some people, just one body contouring session is enough, especially if they had only a minor concern. In most cases, people opt for around three to four treatments, which will help them get the optimum result from their body contouring treatments. The doctor will work with every patient to help them determine the best body contouring treatment schedule.
