What Can Body Contouring Do for Me?

Do you look at your body in a mirror and give an involuntary shudder? Do you see the fat deposits on your arms, legs, and abdomen? Your body is not how you want it to look, and exercise and diet are just not doing any good. However, there are ways to shape your body to help it look fit and contoured. Body sculpting, or body contouring, can eliminate fat, shape areas of your body, decrease skin laxity and wrinkles from aging, childbirth, weight fluctuations, or injuries. Body contouring is a procedure aiming to reshape areas of your body. It can involve getting rid of extra skin from weight loss, eliminating excess fat, and reshaping the areas you don’t like. Body sculpting is not a weight loss program. Instead, it is a shaping program and addresses areas where significant weight loss leads to saggy 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. A tummy tuck is called an abdominoplasty, and a facelift to get rid of fat is a rhytidectomy. There is also double chin surgery and a breast lift (mastopexy).
  • After substantial weight loss due to surgery or lifestyle changes, skin and tissue generally do not have the elasticity to conform to your reduced body size. 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 of recovery. During the first four weeks, you will be sore and may need to use drains and surgical garments during your recovery. Surgery does require cutting, stitching, and anesthesia.

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, a technique using ultrasound and radiofrequency to tighten skin, reduce cellulite, and work on body contouring.

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.

Radiofrequency and ultrasound energy work on the upper tissue skin layer, causing contraction in collagen fibers. This contraction causes your body to produce more collagen to create a tighter, smoother look. The cooling process protects your skin from the heat included in the treatment. The EFC or energy flow control makes sure that the perfect levels of power are delivered to the treatment area.

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
  • Swelling
  • 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.
