Body contouring is the cosmetic improvement of a person’s body, typically by removing fat cells permanently then tightening the skin and evening the appearance of skin tone. It has gained much popularity over the years, and for good reason. It is a safe and effective way to improve one’s aesthetics, and the results are well worth it.

What is body contouring?

Body contouring is a non-invasive treatment designed to sculpt the body into a new form. To illustrate how it works, it can help to think of the way a sculptor works to create a body. Let’s say the sculptor thinks the one area of the body is too large, they can remold this area of the sculpture by removing the excess clay to make it smaller. Another option is that the sculptor wants to make one area smaller and another larger, so they can take the clay from the larger area and redistribute it to the smaller area.

If you are looking to get the perfect body shape, body contouring is the right procedure for you. There are several kinds of body contouring treatments and procedures that you can ask your clinician about!

Is body contouring painful?

Body contouring patients generally describe their experience more as uncomfortable than painful, though some patients do experience pain. The 2-3 minute massage following the procedure is often the most uncomfortable time as fat cells begin to die.

Body contouring pain is primarily experienced during the procedure itself. You may also feel slight pinching and pulling sensations. These effects can last anywhere between 5-10 minutes during your treatment.

Post-procedure, you might experience pain along with swelling and itching. With the abdomen being the most vulnerable, the level of pain experienced between areas treated can vary. Body contouring is extremely comfortable and thus does not require anesthesia. This is because the procedure is extremely comfortable and free of most pain. Patients can relax, taking the time to sleep, read, or use mobile devices.

How much weight do you lose with body contouring?

Although you will see some amount of weight loss with body contouring, it is designed to help shape areas of the body. This means that the results of body contouring techniques are greatly improved if the patient is close to their target weight.

There is more than just simple weight loss when it comes to body contouring procedures. Keep in mind that removing or destroying fat cells does not stop you from gaining weight elsewhere. If you do not maintain a healthy lifestyle or try to maintain your weight, your fat cells can still expand and get bigger.

Body contouring makes an aesthetic difference and should not be used as a means of reaching your health goals. In order to maintain your newly sculpted body, you need to partake in exercise and proper nutrition. If you are looking to get rid of those stubborn areas of fat, body contouring is the best solution out there for you.

Body Contouring before your treatment?

Most of us have had medical tests performed that required not eating for 12 hours beforehand. Fortunately for body contouring, there’s not much prep work. Even if those love handles don’t stem from complete laziness, you can take a break leading up to your procedure!

There are a few things, though, that you should keep in mind before your appointment. First, avoid getting sunburned prior to coming in. After all, you’re about to undergo laser therapy. Second, don’t use hand lotion or body creams the day of the procedure, at least on the targeted area.

Depending on your medical history, you may also be told to avoid medications like aspirin or blood thinners prior to coming in. This will reduce the likelihood of bruising in those who are prone to the problem.
