Body Contouring

What is body contouring?

Body contouring involves various noninvasive treatments to change the shape of your body, typically eliminating extra bulges and pockets of fat. The treatments target fat cells and tighten the skin with:

  • Injections
  • Ultrasound waves
  • Radiofrequency
  • Laser energy
  • Freezing

Following surgery, your body flushes the targeted fat cells over the next few months, and you start noticing results. For many people, body contouring is an appealing alternative to liposuction. Because it isn’t surgical, you can skip the incision, scars, pain, and anesthesia, and you can usually return to your normal routine right away.

Who gets body contouring?

Dr. Caspe might recommend body contouring to address numerous situations, including:

  • Leftover skin after rapid weight loss
  • Residual tummy pooch after childbirth
  • Stubborn fat that resists a healthy diet and exercise

Body contouring works best for fit people with unwanted bulges that don’t respond to diet and exercise. It’s not an appropriate treatment for people who are obese — proper diet and exercise are still the best way to lose body fat.

The most common areas body contouring targets are:

  • Abdomen
  • Upper arms
  • Love handles
  • Thighs

Are the results from body contouring lasting?

The number of fat cells in the adult body doesn’t change over time. When you lose weight, those fat cells shrink, but they don’t go away; when you gain weight, those fat cells expand.

Body contouring dissolves those fat cells instead of just shrinking them. Once body contouring dissolves or flushes those fat cells, they are unable to return.

Even though those fat cells are gone, you can still gain weight after the procedure. To maintain your results, you need to stay active and eat a healthy diet. This will help prevent new fat deposits from forming and existing fat cells from expanding. Body contouring is a fat removal treatment, not a weight loss solution.
