Undergoing a significant weight loss can have a massive positive impact on your self-confidence and will immediately lower your risk of developing weight-related health conditions. However, it is very common for those who have lost a significant amount of weight to struggle to lose that last bit of fat or to be unhappy with the appearance of excess skin. Body contouring is able to offer non-surgical options to finally have the body and silhouette of your dreams to allow for all of that hard work of a weight loss program to be fully enjoyed.
Body contouring (also commonly referred to as body sculpting) encompasses several different types of procedures that are used to reshape the body to reduce the appearance of excess fat or stored fat deposits, or extra skin that may have been left behind following a significant weight loss. The most common body contouring procedures are non- or minimally-invasive non-surgical procedures known as lipolysis. The majority of lipolysis procedures are able to contour the body by targeting excess fat to destroy the fat cells, and as the fat is metabolized by the body, the area that has been treated will appear smoother and tighter. Some popular lipolysis treatments include CoolSculpting, injection lipolysis, radiofrequency lipolysis, and laser lipolysis. Body contouring can be performed on a variety of areas of the body including the arms, the belly, the buttocks, the back, the thighs, the neck and chin area
Body contouring is a great option for those who have perhaps undergone a weight loss transition but seem to be struggling to get rid of that last bit of stubborn fat that just won’t go away no matter how much you diet or exercise. The procedures are not recommended for those who are at risk of having a significant fluctuation in their weight following the body contouring, so a good candidate would be someone who has had a stable weight for a while and who has already essentially achieved their desired goal weight. As well, a good candidate is someone who has reasonable expectations for the procedure, and is aware of what realistic results may include or if multiple sessions may be required to attain their desired results. Lipolysis procedures are great for those who do not wish to undergo a more invasive or surgical procedure but still would like to achieve similar results to what those more invasive options are able to offer.
Since body contouring procedures are not intended as a weight-loss treatment, they are most effective at just getting rid of small pockets of fat to offer a smoother tighter appearance to the body. With this in mind, body contouring treatments are able to destroy anywhere from 20% to 80% of the fat cells in the areas that are targeted, depending on the type of treatment and how many sessions are completed. It should only be used after the majority of the desired weight has been shed to help you achieve the desired results that will provide you with your dream silhouette.
These non-surgical body contouring procedures will require several sessions in order to offer the final results, but most of the procedure options are completely pain-free and are more affordable than their surgical counterparts. The total timeline of being able to realize results depends on how much contouring is required and which procedure you choose to pursue. However, it is common to see some subtle changes start to take place after the first couple of treatments, with most patients being able to enjoy their final results after 4 to 6 treatments. Since the procedures work by destroying the fat cells, the results you achieve are considered permanent because those fat cells that have been destroyed cannot just come back. That being said, if you were to gain weight again, it is likely that your body will store the fat in similar places again, replacing the previously destroyed fat cells with new ones, which is why only those with a stabilized weight are considered good candidates for body contouring.
