Does Body Contouring Work?

Reshape Your Body and Remove Excess Body Fat

Body contouring is a form of non-surgical cosmetic treatment that patients seek when they want to uncover a firm, toned body underneath layers of fat. During the procedure, the specialists reshape underlying tissue and remove extra body fat. If you are struggling with stubborn excess fat that doesn’t disappear even after you’ve met your weight loss goal, or you would like some extra assistance with toning, body contouring might be right for you. Some popular areas to have body contouring are in the lower abdominal region, the tummy region, the arms, inner thighs, and buttocks. The popularity of body contouring rose 43% between 2017 to 2019, so the demand is quickly growing, and for good reason. One study published in Clinical, Cosmetic and Investigational Dermatology reported that improvements were seen in 86% of subjects, and the patient satisfaction rate, 73% is higher than the rate of similar procedures. This evidence goes to show that body contouring is a noninvasive procedure that yields real results. Some of the other motivating factors behind the popularity of body contouring include:

  • We can target many areas of the body in one treatment.

Because body contouring is noninvasive, we are able to target a variety of areas in the body. You might think this is convenient for patients who are far from their weight loss goals, but oftentimes, the opposite is true. Patients who have lost a substantial amount of weight often seek body contouring because it can free the body of excess skin in multiple areas throughout the body that might have transformed after the weight loss.

  • Daily activities become more comfortable.

When you have excess fat deposits, everyday activities like exercising become tedious and unpleasant. This can even interfere with your fitness goals because it might interfere with the motivation to exercise. Body contouring offers a solution to this issue. Body contouring allows you to move more freely to help you look your best and most importantly, feel your best.

  • They finally see improvement in stubborn fat deposits.

The main purpose of body contouring is to destroy fat cells and remove stubborn pockets of fat. Although many treatments aim to do this, body contouring is particularly effective. Patients will see the best results if they are close to their target weight because the treatment is meant to remove those stubborn fat deposits that remain.

  • The procedure is safe.

This procedure is scientifically proven and cleared as safe by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Patients can relax knowing that they are in good hands as they sit back and enjoy a simple, noninvasive treatment.

  • The results are permanent and dramatic.

If you maintain a healthy lifestyle and don’t put on extra weight, body contouring results are permanent. Losing weight will cause you to generate new fat cells, in which case the results will be lost. This is another major reason we recommend you be as close to your weight goal as possible. At this point, you will have already adapted the routines and disciplines necessary to keep off the weight, and you will enjoy long-lasting results.

How to Choose the Right Body Contouring Procedure for You

At Novopelle Med Spa, we provide free consultations where we can meet you and get an understanding of your body goals. We will talk about your problem areas and where you would like to see improvements. If we determine that body contouring is the right procedure for you, we can talk about the specific focus areas and align on expectations. In order to ensure we produce the best possible result, we will ask a few strategic questions. Please remember that our office is a judgment-free zone and our only intent is to help you feel and look your best. Some of these questions might include:

  • How far are you from your weight goal?

Each patient’s body is unique, and their weight loss goals will be unique as well. That’s why there is no “one-size-fits-all” rule, but generally, those who are within ten pounds of their weight goal are the best candidates. Again, this will look different for every patient, but it is important that we understand what your goals are so that we can help you meet them.

  • Do you have loose skin or areas of sagging muscles?

We need to make sure we are on the same page about the problem areas at hand. This is the only way we can ensure that we provide the right treatment for you. For example, if loose skin reaches a certain extent, body contouring might not be the right choice. If this is the case, we can walk you through some alternate options and work to find one that satisfies your needs.

  • Do you desire quick results?

A major reason that many patients choose body contouring is because, unlike surgical methods, there is no downtime. Patients are able to return to their regular schedule immediately after treatment. If this is a priority for you, we might recommend body contouring as your best option.
