Body Contouring

What is body contouring?

Body contouring is a procedure that destroys your fat cells and manipulates your body’s shape to be more refined to your specifications. This procedure is popular among patients who’ve recently lost a significant amount of weight but still have excess skin and fat in some areas. 

You can also get the procedure if you simply have stubborn areas of fat that won’t go away with a healthy diet and exercise plan.

At Empire Aesthetics, the team uses SculpSure®, a body-contouring system that kills your fat cells with a powerful laser light. 

Does body contouring help me lose weight?

Body contouring, while eliminating fat, shouldn’t be used as a weight-loss method. In order to get the treatments, you should be at or close to your target weight. You may shed some pounds throughout your treatment process, but it won’t be a significant amount. 

What areas can I target with body contouring?

Body-contouring treatments generally work on any area of your body where fat accumulates. Specifically, patients often slim and shape these parts of their bodies:

  • Double chin
  • Abdomen
  • Love handles
  • Thighs
  • Back

Fat often builds up in these areas despite a healthy lifestyle because of age, genetics, and even gravity. 

When will I see my body-contouring results?

If you choose to have body-contouring surgery, you’ll see your results immediately but you’ll need plenty of time to recover from your surgical incisions. 

With SculpSure and other noninvasive body-contouring methods, the results take a bit more time to appear, but you can go on with your life as normal while you wait. 

For about three months, your body’s lymphatic system is tasked with flushing out all of your dead fat cells naturally. As this occurs, you’ll see the treated areas gradually shrink and become more toned. As long as you continue to eat healthy foods and exercise regularly, your body’s new shape is permanent.

You can’t trade in your body for a new one, but you can improve your body’s shape with body contouring. To find out if you’re a good candidate, call Empire Aesthetics or book your consultation online today.
