Body Contouring: All You Need to Know About this Procedure

These days, how we present ourselves physically is a major part of our identity. More people are putting effort into improving their health by eating right and exercising. Keeping our bodies in good shape sends a message about who we are and what we value. However, sometimes the way we are on the outside isn’t a true reflection of how we feel beneath the surface. When you’re unable to reach your ideal body shape, no matter how hard you try, body contouring can help.

Body contouring is the answer you’ve been looking for, whether you’ve recently lost a lot of weight, delivered a baby, or just can’t manage to lose that last bit of fat no matter how much you exercise and watch what you eat. Body contouring methods help you look and feel great by eliminating stubborn fat without surgery.

Here’s a quick guide to everything you need to know before getting this treatment at our health and wellness center in Henderson/Las Vegas:

What is body contouring?

Body contouring helps people already at a healthy weight get rid of stubborn fat that won’t budge with exercise and a good diet. The goal of body contouring is to reduce fat by selectively attacking fat cells in certain body parts.

While it’s true that you can’t artificially make more fat cells, you can get rid of the ones you already have. A person who has undergone a body contouring treatment says goodbye to the fat cells they lose once and for all. The body will unveil its actual shape as soon as you target those stubborn fat pockets with body contouring treatments.

Not great for losing weight

The goal of body contouring is not to lose weight. Candidates must be at or very close to their normal weight. You should participate in a weight-maintenance program that includes both dietary changes and physical activity to keep your body weight stable before getting the procedure. While the procedure gets rid of fat for good, it does not guarantee that you won’t regain fat cells in the future.

It takes time to see the results

Unlike other non-invasive cosmetic procedures like dermal fillers, the effects of body contouring take time to show. You should begin to see noticeable changes in as little as three weeks, but the complete effect will take a few months to show up. Your skin will reach a silky smooth texture after three months.

It’s important to remember that the body loses fat cells slowly and steadily after the body contouring procedure. The body needs time to heal and settle into the intended shape, which is why it takes so long for results to show.

The recovery period is short-lived

Recovery after body sculpting doesn’t take very long. In most cases, clients can return to their daily routines quickly following surgery. In contrast, surgical operations might have a lengthy recovery period (weeks to months). Since there is no requirement for invasive medical procedures or anesthesia, fewer risks are involved. Most of our clients feel good enough to drive back home after a session.

Adverse effects, if any, are minimal and short-lived. There might be some inflammation and redness, but that can be easily treated with over-the-counter medication.

It can be performed on multiple body parts

Depending on the severity of the correction needed, you can target several parts of the body at the same time. This is especially helpful for people who have dropped a lot of weight but still have extra skin in a few places. Lower body lifts, which target the thighs and stomach area, can produce dramatic results even when performed alone.

Makes daily activities more comfortable

When extra skin is removed, the body immediately looks and feels firmer. Movements like walking and jumping will be easier and painless to perform. After the procedure, you will also notice a significant decrease in muscle chaffing and tugging, bulkiness, and unpleasant jiggling of different body parts.

Removes stubborn fat from problem areas

Though pricey lotions and wraps may help with the appearance of flabby areas of skin in the short term, nothing compares to body contouring for long-lasting effects. Tummy tucks and arm lifts can be used to get rid of excess skin and fat from hard-to-tone places like the upper arms and stomach. Combining liposuction with body sculpting is a great way to achieve a toned and sculpted appearance from head to toe.
