You go to great lengths to take care of your body. You eat well and exercise often to be healthy, and yes: to look good, too! But what if you try everything and still don’t see the results you want? In this case, body contouring might be a good option for you. To get an idea of what it is and whether it’s for you, read on.
What Is Body Contouring?
Body contouring is a method to target unwanted fat and reveal sculpted, toned muscles. You might choose body contouring if you have worked hard to adjust your diet and workout routine but still don’t see visible results. You can target unwanted loose skin from previous weight loss, tone the desired area, and get rid of fat cells. Often you can see results that you can’t see with diet and exercise alone. It’s also helpful when you want to target areas after significant weight loss.
Body Contouring Procedures
The procedure will look different depending on which body contouring option you choose. Surgical choices include liposuction, which is more involved than nonsurgical options, known as lipolysis. Since liposuction is a surgical procedure, it takes place in a surgeon’s office. You would undergo anesthesia, and the procedure can take up to several hours in some cases. There is also more downtime involved than nonsurgical options. With nonsurgical choices like laser body sculpting, the procedure typically only takes 30 minutes to an hour at most.
There are many benefits to body contouring. Here are just a few:
- Longer lasting results
- Eliminate unwanted fat
- Shape and tone target areas
- Results without the gym and strict diet
Body contouring could be right for you if you want a way to target specific areas like your buttocks, thighs, or stomach. The next step would be deciding between surgical and nonsurgical options.
Surgical vs. Nonsurgical Options
As mentioned earlier, you can decide between surgical options like liposuction. There are pros and cons to each of these options. With surgery, the results can often be more pronounced, but you do have to undergo anesthesia ahead of the actual procedure. The recovery is longer and more intense than nonsurgical counterparts. You might avoid looking into body contouring because you don’t want to go under the knife.
The good news is that nonsurgical options provide the same results without the need for surgery. At Ascent Laser Aesthetics, we offer a few nonsurgical body contouring options like EmSculpt and TruSculpt. These procedures are non-invasive and give you visible results like toned muscles and a thinner, leaner physique. In addition to requiring no surgeries, these body contouring services are virtually painless.
