Body contouring aims to reduce the excess skin and also eliminating the pockets of fat resistant to diet and exercise. It is also called as body sculpting. This treatment is an extremely effective fat burning tool, but it is important to note that it is not a substitute for other weight loss treatments.

It is a non-invasive cosmetic operation aimed basically at improving the shape of the body. You are a good candidate for this treatment if you’re in good health, have a positive attitude and realistic expectations. It is best suited for treating limited volumes of fat around the flanks, back, thighs and abdomen.

What is Body Contouring?

Body contouring is described as a wide range of aesthetic plastic surgery procedures designed to sculpture and improve the appearance of the body. The techniques the surgeon will use and the extent of reshaping will depend on the current physical situation and body goals. It can include both surgical and non-surgical procedures. The common reasons why people elect to have body contouring include changes in body shape due to giving birth and breastfeeding, obesity and ageing. The areas that are most commonly addressed with body contouring are waistline and back, thighs, face and neck, upper arms, breasts, abdomen and calves. Some of the non-surgical body contouring procedures include low level laser therapy (laser body sculpting), ultrasound and radiofrequency.

What are the different types of Body Contouring?

CoolSculpting, liposuction, SmartLipo, VelaShape, VASER liposuction, fat transfers and lifts are some kinds of body contouring. Some risks are also involved to body contouring surgery, as with any surgical procedure, as it requires general anesthesia and can be somewhat invasive. They include numbness, scarring and blood clots. After the skin is removed, the body tries to adjust to new dimensions of the skin; but the tone and smoothness of the skin may not be perfect.
