Body Contouring Treatments
A wide variety of body contouring procedures are currently used for body reshaping. Some major treatments are enlisted below:
CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved, non-surgical body contouring treatment that eliminates stubborn fat cells from nine different areas. The common treatable areas include thighs, lower back, belly, under the chin, and flanks. CoolSculpting utilizes cryolipolysis technology to kill fat cells. The targeted area is placed between the dual applicators of the device that cool it to a freezing temperature and destroy fat cells. In addition to this, CoolSculpting can also be used as a cellulite treatment, but it is not a suitable option for weight loss.
Radiofrequency (RF) body contouring is another non-surgical procedure that uses heat and RF energy to remove fat cells and reshape your body. It is also effective for treating cellulite and smoothing sagging skin. The heat used in radiofrequency treatment stimulates collagen production and reduces fat pockets. As a result, you get smooth, firm, and tight skin with the best physique. Radiofrequency body contouring is suitable for all skin tones and patients of all ethnicities. The most common device used to perform RF body contouring is Pollogen Legend.
Pollogen Legend is one of the latest technologies used for body contouring. It combines tripolar radiofrequency energy and dynamic muscle activation technology to provide the user with tightened skin, a sculpted body, and a perfect shape. With years of improvements, the radiofrequency treatment performed by Pollogen Legend is far better and more advanced than ever.
Generally known as Tummy tuck, Abdominoplasty is a surgical body contouring treatment. It tones and sculpts the abdominal region by removing excess fat and skin. Moreover, it can also repair the separation of the rectus diastasis muscle. Tummy tuck surgery can also be combined with liposuction for best results. The most common areas treated with Abdominoplasty include the upper abdominal area, lower abdominal area, the beltline, and the entire stomach.
Arm lift surgery, also known as Brachioplasty, eliminates the excess skin and fat between the underarm and the elbow. In this way, the contours of your arms appear to be smoother and redefined. During the procedure, incisions are made on the inside of the arm, and excess fat deposits are extracted through liposuction. The length and location of the incision vary from patient to patient based on the position of excess fat or skin.
Fat Transfer/ Fat Grafting
Fat grafting is a body contouring technique in which excess fat is extracted from one body part and used to add volume to other areas of the body. The areas like thighs and abdomen are usually the most common donor areas for fat removal. The collected fat is then converted into a pure liquid fatty tissue which is injected into the area that needs more volume. As a result, you get the desired body contours. However, for long-lasting results, 2 to 3 sessions are required.
Brazilian Butt Lift
Brazilian Butt Lift is a body sculpting surgery where excess fats are removed from specific areas and injected into the buttocks. In this way, you get an enhanced buttock appearance with extra fat removal from areas like the stomach, waist, and thighs. In BBL surgery, fat is extracted from the donor areas through liposuction which is then purified and processed. After that, the surgeon injects the pure fat into the buttocks to increase their volume and size. The final result is a perfectly shaped and contoured body with desired curves.
Risks and Complications
Surgical body contouring procedures come with certain risks that are relatively uncommon. Some common risks include:
- Complications due to anesthesia, e.g., nausea and vomiting
- Blood clots
- Hair loss near incisions
- Damage to blood vessels
Body contouring offers significant benefits, which include the following:
- You get well-defined and perfectly contoured body parts.
- The results are natural-looking and long-lasting.
- One body contouring procedure can target different areas of the body.
- It helps remove fat deposits from stubborn areas like the lower abdomen.
- All the techniques are safe.
- You can get rid of sagging skin.
Is Body Contouring Painful?
It depends on the technique being used and the patient’s level of pain tolerance. If you are getting surgical body contouring treatment, you will feel pain during and after the treatment. Therefore, your surgeon will use anesthesia during the procedure. Also, pain killers will be prescribed to tackle the pain after the surgery.
However, if you are getting a non-surgical procedure, the discomfort will be minimal. You will not experience severe pain, but the area will feel warm, and your skin will become red.
How Long Does It Take to See Results from Body Contouring?
With non-surgical body contouring treatments, you can expect some changes within 6 to 8 weeks after the treatment. However, the final results appear after two to three months.
