Body Contouring

What is body sculpting?

Body sculpting, also called body contouring, is a method for improving the overall appearance of your body, specifically trouble spots that have not responded well to diet and exercise. Methods for body contouring can be surgical or nonsurgical.

Surgical methods include face or brow lift, breast enhancement, or liposuction. Nonsurgical methods include Kybella® and SculpSure®, which are both proudly offered at Medical Aesthetics & Laser.

Body contouring may be used to:

  • Tighten skin
  • Tighten connective tissues
  • Add fullness and volume
  • Remove fat

Body contouring helps to refine areas of the body that may be a source of frustration for you, despite weight loss and a healthy lifestyle.

Who is a good candidate for body contouring?

Body contouring is best for those who are generally healthy and not morbidly obese. Results are best for those who intend on maintaining a healthy lifestyle after their procedure.

For best results, a good candidate for body contouring is:

  • An adult
  • A nonsmoker
  • Does not have serious health problems
  • Is not in the midst of significant weight loss
  • Has realistic goals

Dr. Zaka determines whether you are an ideal candidate for body contouring, and helps you visualize what changes you can realistically expect from your body contouring procedure.

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is an FDA-cleared, noninvasive method for helping remove fat from stubborn areas of the body, including:

  • Belly
  • Flanks, or love handles
  • Back
  • Thighs
  • Under the chin

SculpSure uses laser technology to target fat cells in these common problem areas. Fat cells are heated to the point that they are permanently destroyed. The body then naturally gets rid of the dead cells over time, reducing the concentration of fat cells in treated areas.

What does a SculpSure treatment entail?

SculpSure treatments last around 25 minutes, with no discomfort and with no recovery time needed. A specialized belt is applied to treatment areas, which alternates between cooling and heating, to effectively destroy fat cells while keeping you comfortable.

Your most complete results are seen in about 12 weeks, once your body has removed the dead fat cells. You may require multiple treatments, in order to achieve your ideal goals.

Dr. Zaka creates a fully customizable treatment plan that best helps you to look and feel your very best, using this revolutionary body contouring method.
