What is body contouring?
Body contouring is a type of body sculpting that can help to give you the shape and appearance you desire. It can remove unwanted fat, tighten skin, and create a more toned appearance that diet and exercise can’t. Body contouring can be done through various methods depending on your preference and needs.
What are the different body contouring methods?
When it comes to body contouring, a few different methods can be used to achieve the desired results.
Liposuction is a medical procedure that removes fat from the body. It is typically performed on areas of the body with excess fat, such as the abdomen, thighs, or arms. Liposuction can be performed using various techniques, and the type of technique used will depend on the amount of fat to be removed and the area of the body being treated. The most common type of liposuction is called tumescent liposuction, which uses a small amount of local anesthesia to numb the area to be treated. A cannula (a small tube) is then inserted through a tiny incision in the skin and used to suction out the excess fat.
Liposuction is generally considered a safe procedure, but as with any surgery, some risks are involved. These include infection, bleeding, and bruising. The most common complication of liposuction is called “seroma,” a collection of fluid that can develop under the skin where the fat has been removed. Seromas can usually be treated with drains, where small tubes are inserted under the skin to help remove the fluid.
If you’re considering liposuction, be sure to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon who has experience performing the procedure. They will be able to answer any questions you have and help you make an informed decision about whether or not liposuction is right for you.
Lifts and tucks
Lifts and tucks are body contouring procedures that remove excess skin and tissue. This can be done to multiple body areas, including the face, neck, breasts, and abdomen. Famous methods include tummy tuck, facelift, breast lift, and double chin surgery.
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive body contouring procedure that freezes and eliminates fat cells from the body. It is FDA-cleared, safe, and effective. CoolSculpting results are long-lasting and can be seen as soon as three weeks after treatment.
During a CoolSculpting treatment, a gel pad and applicator are applied to the target area. The applicator delivers controlled cooling to the fat cells, freezing them. The treated fat cells are then eliminated from the body through natural processes.
CoolSculpting is ideal for those who are at or near their goal weight but have stubborn pockets of fat that they would like to eliminate. The procedure is not meant for weight loss but for body contouring.
truSculpt® iD is a body contouring treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to heat and destroy fat cells. The treated fat cells are then eliminated from the body through natural processes.

So, which body sculpting treatment is best for you?
The answer depends on your goals and preferences.
If you want a non-invasive body contouring treatment that doesn’t require any downtime, CoolSculpting may be the best option for you. On the other hand, if you’re looking for a body contouring treatment that can target large areas of fat and provides long-lasting results, truSculpt® iD may be the better option.
