Body Sculpting Q & A

What is body sculpting?

Body sculpting, also commonly called body contouring, is a noninvasive and low-effort way to reduce body fat and achieve a more preferable body shape. Dr. South uses Viora’s V30 multi-technology platform for body sculpting stubborn areas of fat.

The procedures don’t allow you to lose a lot of weight, but they work by killing your fat cells with heat, energy, or cold, and giving your body the opportunity to absorb them on its own. Viora’s V30 delivers quick, painless and effective results in little to no downtime.

Body sculpting results are permanent as long as you don’t gain weight in excess following the treatment. Dr. South at Premier Wellness & Aesthetics Center helps you map out a body sculpting treatment plan that meets your goals. It might involve multiple sessions of your procedure.

Can I target any part of my body with body sculpting?

Body sculpting treatments target areas of fat that are difficult to lose, even with a dedication to your diet and exercise regimen. Depending on the mode of your body sculpting treatment, Dr. South can help you use body sculpting to slim down or reshape your:

  • Chin and neck area
  • Upper arms
  • Back
  • Abdomen
  • Love handles
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Cellulite


Several months after your body sculpting treatments, you see a noteworthy difference in the shape of your targeted areas. The best part? The results look completely natural because of your body’s role in the process.

Am I a candidate for body sculpting treatments?

Because of the treatments’ non-surgical nature, many patients can safely get body sculpting with very little chance of experiencing complications. You sit down with Dr. South at a consultation to discuss whether or not the treatment is right for you. 

To be a candidate for body sculpting, you must:

  • Be within a normal weight range
  • Weigh close to your goal weight
  • Have realistic expectations
  • Not have a pacemaker or a defibrillator


If your weight is above the recommended weight for body sculpting, Dr. South can work with you to lose weight effectively and then discuss body sculpting for any areas that diet and exercise are not reducing.

Body sculpting treatments don’t require recovery time, anesthesia, or any of the complications of surgical options like liposuction. 

To sculpt your body to a slimmer or more shapely figure with body sculpting, call Premier Wellness & Aesthetics Center for a consultation or book online today.
