Body contouring, or body sculpting, is an umbrella term for any cosmetic treatment that helps contour the body to look a certain way. Much of the time, cosmetic body sculpting is done by removing unwanted fat, skin, and cellulite from the body through an assortment of high-tech methods. These methods can be surgical, minimally invasive, or non–invasive.
Why use body contouring?
Body sculpting is often used to address problems that regular lifestyle habits, such as diet and exercise, cannot change. For many of us, there are several roadblocks that can get in the way of losing the weight we want where we want.
Hormones, aging, and genetic predisposition are all factors for why undesired fat refuses to budge from the neck, arms, tummy, buttocks, and thighs. With body contouring, you can make your hard work tell and make it easier to maintain the shape you want.
Benefits of Body Sculpting
Getting the body you want and finally getting out of the gym are not the only benefits for this type of treatment. In fact, there are many benefits that you might not have considered, like:
- Saving time
- Minimizing the frustration you feel about your body
- Boosting your self-esteem
For most patients, these are enough benefits to take the plunge and begin cosmetic treatments. Here are some other benefits of body contouring:
Improve Stubborn Areas
There are places on every body where fat and cellulite refuse to go away. It happens to everyone. It‘s very common for women to store stubborn fat on their hips, thighs, and abdomen, especially as the effects of aging and hormonal changes begin to set in.
It seems like those stubborn areas never go away no matter how many squats and crunches you do, and that can be discouraging. Body sculpting treatments easily improve those stubborn areas in a matter of weeks or months.
No matter where your stubborn area is, these treatments are all effective at removing unwanted fat from your body and perfecting your body shape. These treatments can also smooth out stubborn cellulite and tighten skin laxity on the body that refuses to tone up.
Body sculpting treatments are very safe techniques. The treatments at our office have all gone through rigorous clinical testing and FDA approval. Much of the time, these techniques are far safer than crash diets or taking iffy supplements that promise to boost your metabolism.
Cosmetic treatments to sculpt the body are often completed on the surface of the skin to encourage the body‘s natural regenerative abilities, so these treatments are natural and safe.
While diet and exercise are obviously good lifestyle habits to have for the sake of your health, it is often the case that the body reaches a plateau at some point. These plateaus can mean that your lifestyle habits are no longer effective or that your body is quicker to backslide to where you started, and that means that the results you worked so hard for might not last for long.
Body sculpting treatments are different. Because of the techniques and technology that is used to contour the body, cosmetic treatments for the body usually have reliably long–lasting results. When performed by a skilled hand and combined with a healthy lifestyle, body sculpting treatments can last for several months to even years at a time.
Do I need to keep getting body contouring treatments to maintain my results?
Once you complete your body contouring procedure(s), you don’t need to get any more treatments to maintain your results. However, it‘s still possible for you to gain back the fat that was removed, so you do need to keep up with a healthy diet and exercise routine to continue enjoying your results.
