When you’re so close to hitting your weight and body goals, you might find it difficult shedding off stubborn fat cells in certain areas. With our body contouring treatments, we can help you eliminate unwanted fat and sculpt the body you want. Get a leaner, slimmer body – with no surgery required.
Body contouring or body sculpting is a fat-reduction treatment that can help you reshape an area of your body by eliminating excess skin and fat cells. Through lipolysis, we can eliminate up to 25% of your fat cells in the treated area within 4 to 6 months.
Keep in mind that body contouring is not a weight-loss method nor is it similar to invasive plastic surgery procedures like liposuction or a tummy tuck. It’s supposed to help your current weight loss regimen by helping you get rid of stubborn fat areas that regular diet and exercise can’t seem to eliminate.
There are certain areas in the average human body where excess fat can be difficult to remove, even with proper diet and exercise. Rather than resorting to more invasive fat reduction procedures like liposuctions and tummy tucks, body contouring is a non-surgical option that isn’t as drastic as cosmetic surgery. And because it’s not as invasive (no incisions are made throughout the entire process), there’s no need for longer downtime and recovery periods that other cosmetic surgeries need.
Some of the areas we treat with body contouring include:
The cosmetic procedure can take as little as one hour, but the full results can take up to 6 months. This is because your body can take a while to filter and flush out the dead fat cells. It’s a slow but sure process, and we recommend body contouring to patients who are willing to wait for these results while maintaining their healthy lifestyle.
As the top master injector in New York City, Dr. Lanna has helped countless patients achieve the look of their dreams. Let Dr. Lanna Aesthetics help with your beauty goals today by scheduling your consultation.
Before getting body contouring, each patient has an initial consultation with Dr. Lanna Aesthetics. This is to check if you are a suitable candidate for body contouring, as well as to set your expectations of how long it takes for results to show.
During a body contouring procedure, a device that has cooling plates and a vacuum will expose your fat cells to freezing temperatures that can kill them. The surrounding skin, nerves, and blood vessels aren’t harmed in the process. It can take around an hour, though treating multiple areas can lengthen the process.
After your treatment, it can take up to 6 months to see visible changes. During this period, your fat cells will slowly be absorbed into your bloodstream, filtered out, and naturally excreted by your body.
A: Body contouring is not a weight-loss method, so this isn’t a method to treat obesity or overweight patients. Ideally, a candidate should:
A: Once Dr. Lanna Aesthetics treats those unwanted fat cells, they’re gone for good and won’t return. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t develop new fat cells if you change your lifestyle and experience extreme weight gain. To avoid re-developing fat cells in the treatment area, you’ll need to consistently live a healthy lifestyle.
A: There is a difference. During weight loss or weight gain, the size of your fat cells change but are all still there. But when you undergo fat reduction treatments like body contouring, you completely eliminate these cells. So while body contouring can sculpt your body by eliminating fat cells, its effects on your weight are negligible and aren’t the same as weight loss procedures like liposuction or bariatric surgery.
