Body contouring technology and methods create vast opportunity on body contouring trends and have rapidly changed over the past few years. With new technological advancements, patients today can expect less downtime and better outcomes. Recent body contouring trends can address a variety of concerns including fat reduction, muscle tone, ab etching, and skin tightening.
VASER liposuction is a newer technology that allows your surgeon to selectively remove unwanted body fat from areas of the body. This liposuction alternative is known to have less bruising, less pain, and faster recovery times than traditional liposuction. Areas that can be treated include:
- Jowls, chin, and neck
- Abdomen, hips, and love handles
- Back, buttocks
- Knees and thighs
Smartlipo is an alternative to invasive liposuction using an intense beam of energy (laser) to heat away fat cells that eventually get sucked away completely. Patients see great results and recovery is quick.
EMSCULPT For Muscle Tone
EMSCULPT uses High Intensity Focused Electromagnetic Energy (HIFEM) helps strengthen muscles and burn fat at the same time. Each treatment session is 20-30 minutes. The recommended protocol is to begin with at least four sessions within two weeks, followed by a monthly maintenance treatment to help maintain your results.
SculpSure Non-Surgical Fat Reduction
SculpSure is used to target small areas of fat in the abdomen, thighs, arms, and love handles. Each treatment area takes 25 minutes and most people require at least two treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart for optimal results.
