Body Sculpting Q & A

What is body sculpting?

Body sculpting, or body contouring, is a treatment that's designed to alter the shape or appearance of your body. These procedures are often used to remove the excess fat or skin that may remain after you've lost weight.

Body sculpting procedures are not a replacement for a healthy lifestyle. But, they can help slim down troublesome areas that don't resolve on their own after a successful weight-loss program.

How do body sculpting procedures work?

Modern body sculpting procedures often use noninvasive methods like lasers to eliminate fat without surgery. Different procedures use different technology, but popular procedures like SculpSureĀ® use targeted heat to destroy fat cells below the surface of your skin. After the procedure is complete, your body clears away the damaged cells.

Noninvasive body sculpting procedures are not painful. Because there is no surgery involved, there's also no risk of scarring or infection. Most body sculpting procedures take place in the Family Medical Centre, P.A. office and are often completed in under an hour. After the procedure, you can return to your normal activities.

What happens during a body sculpting procedure?

With most body sculpting procedures, you lie down comfortably on a table or reclining chair. Family Medical Centre, P.A. staff may ask you to remove certain items of clothing so the body sculpting device can be applied directly to your skin.

During the procedure, you may experience physical sensations of heating, cooling, or pulling. This is normal and usually isn't painful. Most procedures take 30-60 minutes. Once your procedure is complete, you can return home or go right back to work.

What results can I expect?

Results can vary depending on the size of the area the procedure is targeting. Your results may also vary depending on how much fat you want to remove. In some cases, you may need several procedures to achieve your body contouring goals.

Some procedures provide results in just a few weeks, while other body sculpting procedures may not show results for months. With procedures like SculpSure, you may not notice results until your body has flushed out all the damaged fat cells. This process can take up to 12 weeks.

At Family Medical Centre, P.A., a board-certified physician will help you develop a body sculpting treatment plan that meets your needs. Call today or book an appointment online to learn more.
