What Can Body Contouring Do for Me?
Are you trying to lose those love handles or extra fat on your abdomen, thighs, and legs? Diet and exercise are great and add to your well-being, but a shapely body is desired. You can help your body look shapely by body sculpting, or body contouring, eliminating fat and decreasing skin laxity and wrinkles from weight fluctuations, aging, injuries, or childbirth.
Body contouring aims to reshape out of shape areas of your body, by eliminating lax skin from weight loss, reducing excess fat, and remodeling the areas you want to look attractive. Note, however, body sculpting is not a weight loss program. Instead, it is a sculpting program and addresses areas where significant weight loss or illness leads to lax and sagging skin.
Ways to Contour Your Body
You can undergo surgical or non-surgical procedures to find the contour and shape you want. For example, one surgery is liposuction, a fat removal procedure used in plastic surgery. Liposuction is a very common cosmetic surgery, and you have probably heard of it.
Surgical Body Contouring
Lifts and tucks. These are surgical procedures that remove excess fat and extra skin. Surgical body contouring removes excess sagging skin and fat while improving the shape of the underlying tissues. Surgery recovery times vary, but most take several months.
Non-surgical Body Contouring
If surgery does not sound like something you want to try, there are non-surgical body contouring or lipolysis procedures. Some of these methods include:
- Injections lipolysis or injecting deoxycholic acid into the body to target and get rid of fat cells
- Cryolipolysis uses extremely cold temperatures to destroy fat cells
- Radio Laser lipolysis uses a laser to destroy fat cells
- Radiofrequency lipolysis uses BTL Exillis or a device that combines ultrasound and radiofrequency to reduce cellulite, tighten skin, and work on body contouring.Results can vary, but non-surgical options are becoming more and more popular due to cost, downtime, and little to no symptoms.
One extremely popular and non-surgical way to contour your body is radiofrequency lipolysis using BTL Exillis, ultrasound, and radiofrequency techniques to tighten skin, reduce cellulite, and contour your body.
Golden Laser Aesthetics uses the BTL Exillis to provide a non-surgical and non-invasive technique to tighten your lax skin. This one-of-a-kind skin tightening procedure improves the appearance of the skin in different areas. Radiofrequency combined with ultrasound energy controls heating and cooling, and energy is delivered to different depths in the tissue without causing pain.
BLT Exillis uses radiofrequency and ultrasound energy for body shaping and skin tightening. There is no other body sculpting technology using radiofrequency and ultrasound technology to enhance collagen, destroy fat cells, and tighten skin.
Heating and cooling are controlled to ensure energy is delivered to the right depths in your tissues. Your provider will change heating and cooling during the treatment to treat the superficial layers and deep tissues.
The steps of the BTL Exillis include:
What About After the Treatment?
After non-surgical body sculpting, you will leave the office or clinic when the procedure is finished. There is no waiting for the anesthesia to wear off or for post-surgical procedures to be performed. You will need to, however:
- Use ice packs to reduce swelling
- Do light exercise like walking to stimulate lymphatic drainage
- Drink water and stay hydrated
- Avoid alcohol for 72 hours post-treatment
- Avoid saunas or spas
- Avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours post-treatment. Let your body recover.
The Benefits and Risks of Body Contouring
After body contouring with surgical or non-surgical procedures, you will have:
- Younger, thinner appearance,
- Smoother skin
- Defined and well-shaped body areas
- Symptomatic improvements.
Results from surgery are more immediate and noticeable. Non-surgical options may take a few weeks or more to see a difference.
Non-surgical options have few risks and resolve quickly. Some risks, however, may include:
- Pain or soreness
- Red skin
- A rash or hives
- Need for repeat sessions.
Body contouring helps you feel more energetic. The common body contouring surgical procedures like tummy tucks, arm lifts, liposuction, butt lift, and thigh lift are beneficial for those who have experienced dramatic weight loss and experience excess skin. However, surgical intervention has long recovery times and can be painful for weeks.
Using radiofrequency and ultrasound with the BTL Exillis and other non-surgical treatments will give you a contoured body without the side effects.
