hile almost everyone is familiar with the term “liposuction” and what it means, not so many people are aware of an increasingly popular, non-surgical alternative: body sculpting.
In basic terms, body sculpting, also known as body contouring, offers patients a way to eliminate stubborn fat from targeted areas on their body.
To dive a bit deeper into the topic, here are seven common questions about the body sculpting experience and how it can help you achieve the body you want and boost your confidence.
1. What’s the price tag?
The cost of body sculpting will vary from patient to patient, as it does with most other cosmetic procedures aimed at enhancing appearance. Overall, body sculpting does not cost more than other, similar procedures that remove fat from the body.
2. Can body sculpting correct any kind of body issue?
Body sculpting is a highly versatile and adaptable procedure that produces visible results on many areas of the body, including the thighs, belly, arms, buttocks, back, and neck.
3. Is it a good way to lose weight?
Body sculpting is not a weight loss procedure. Although patients may see some reduction in weight, since small amounts of fat are removed from the body, candidates for body sculpting should already be at or near their optimal weight.
4. How long does it take to see results?
Once again, each patient is different, so the time it takes to see results will vary. In general, though, most patients take one to three months to achieve their desired results. This timeframe encompasses multiple treatment sessions spaced out over several weeks. Each session takes about 30 to 60 minutes.
5. Are the results natural-looking?
The results of body contouring are subtle and intended to enhance your natural silhouette. The procedure merely removes fat cells in order to shape and refine the contours of your body.
6. Does body sculpting hurt?
No. The most severe discomfort that patients feel is no more than a pinch in the treated area and some temporary numbness afterward.
7. What are the risks?
Since body sculpting is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure, it carries very little risk of complications. Slight discomfort and numbness are the most commonly reported side effects.
