Body Contouring

What is Body Contouring?

When your body has gone through a myriad of seasons, sometimes it leaves loose skin behind. And those are parts that not even the best workout regimens can tuck and that’s where body contouring comes in. Body contouring is a procedure that helps restore the shape of your body – whether it’s to tuck loose skin or to melt visceral fats to form a certain silhouette.

What Is It & How It's Done

There are 2 major kinds of body contouring – the Invasive and non-invasive procedures. The invasive procedure is usually a surgical approach – liposuction, tummy tuck, arm or thigh lift, and more. This procedure is done with general anesthesia and usually requires an overnight stay in the hospital. But lately, the less invasive versions of body contouring have been making waves in the cosmetic industry. This procedure focuses on either melting or freezing stubborn areas that keep pockets of fats. Being a less invasive approach, this also means this process takes time and a handful of sessions before you see full results, however, the upside also means little to no downtime, no general anesthesia needed, no scars to worry about, and comes with almost no side effects.

There are plenty of treatments you can choose from when it comes to body contouring such as Red Light Therapy, Laser Treatment, CoolSculpting, Radiofrequency lipolysis (RF) and more. What to remember: Body contouring options are very personal and are based on what your cosmetic goals are. And while non-invasive body contouring is a wonderful option, sustaining your contoured silhouette will still depend on your lifestyle – nutrition, exercise, and rest.

But regardless of which process you opt for, the goal remains the same to bring out a more vibrant and youthful you!
