Body Contouring Basics

Body sculpting is a popular way to deal with pesky areas of fat and cellulite, but what exactly is it?

 

Body sculpting, can eliminate fat, shape areas of the body and tighten skin. 

 

Lipolysis is a nonsurgical alternative to liposuction. The process uses cold, heat, lasers and other methods. This can give you the results you want, without the risks and recovery time of surgery.

 

 Also known as body sculpting, the procedure that aims to reshape an area of the body. 

You can use it to get rid of extra skin, eliminate excess fat, or reshape and contour an area. 


It helps shape the body and address specific areas where weight loss isn’t effective or where there is extra skin after a significant weight loss. 


Some examples are:

  • Cryolipolysis uses very cold temperatures to destroy fat cells.

  • Injection lipolysis involves putting deoxycholic acid into the body to target fat cells.

  • Laser lipolysis uses lasers to destroy fat cells.

  • Radiofrequency lipolysis uses ultrasound waves and heat to target fat cells.


Whether your aim is to look and feel thinner or to attain a certain shape, body sculpting is one of the safer options available. 

 

But what happens during the procedure?

 

Most lipolysis procedures take place in an office or clinic. One session takes about 30 to 60 minutes.

The team may:

  • Give you a robe or hospital gown to wear.

  • Position you on a chair or table.

  • Mark the skin with a pen or marker.

  • Inject a drug in the area where you want to reduce fat (for injection lipolysis).

  • Use a tool (such as paddles or a wand) to deliver ultrasound waves, laser beams, cold or heat, depending on the type of lipolysis.

 

Body sculpting has much shorter average recovery times than surgery. Most people go back to work and other activities immediately after the treatment.

 

You will be able to leave the office or clinic immediately after the procedure. and can get back to your life right away.
