Body Contouring Q & A

What is body contouring?

Body contouring is a cosmetic treatment that helps you shape your figure. The technology used in body contouring reduces fat in areas where it can be hard to shift, like your:

  • Belly
  • Waist
  • Hips
  • Back
  • Thighs
  • Under the chin

Body contouring isn’t a substitute for diet and exercise if you need to lose weight. If you need help with healthy weight loss, Dr. Ahmad can advise you on how to lose weight and keep it off with a medically managed weight loss program.

Dr. Ahmad uses body contouring on patients who are struggling with stubborn pockets of fat and want to refine their figure.

How does body contouring work?

Body contouring works by destroying some of the fat cells in the target area. There are several different ways of reducing fat with body contouring. Some systems use freezing technology, while others use heat. The result, though, is the same.

The fat cells either freeze or melt and get broken down by your body. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures and melt at lower temperatures than other cells in your body. Body contouring technologies take advantage of this to kill the fat cells without damaging other tissues.

The remains of the fat cells gradually disappear and can’t regrow.

What are the advantages of body contouring treatment?

Body contouring is a simple yet effective way to get rid of fatty areas. It has significant advantages over surgical treatments like liposuction, including:

  • No incisions or stitches
  • No risk of infection
  • No need for anesthetic
  • Minimal risk of complications
  • Minimal if any discomfort
  • No need for downtime

Body contouring technology offers pinpoint accuracy, so you can be confident that you’ll have natural-looking contours after your treatment.

How long does it take for body contouring to produce results?

It takes a while for your body to break down the dead fat cells so you won’t get instant results from your body contouring treatment. After about six weeks, you should be able to see a difference. In another six weeks, you should see the finished effect.

The final result is a refined figure with attractive curves so you can feel beautiful and confident. Call Urologic Surgeons of Arizona today to find out more or book an appointment online.
