Body contouring refers to cosmetic procedures that employ surgical or non-invasive treatments to reshape or restore the body to improve your physical appearance. Both men and women opt for body contouring to reduce excess fat or tighten skin laxity
Surgical Body Contouring
The most popular form of surgical body contouring is liposuction and other treatments that lift sagging skin or remove excess skin such as a facelift or tummy tuck. While surgical body contouring is effective, many adults shy away from these procedures because of the invasive nature of cosmetic surgery, including general anesthesia, scalpels and stitches, scars, and lengthy recovery times.
Non-Invasive Body Contouring
Recently, advancements in non-invasive cosmetic procedures have revolutionized the body contouring industry. The most popular, non-invasive body contouring treatment, Cool Sculpting, provides healthy adults with a non-surgical alternative to liposuction for reducing stubborn bulges. Ultrasound treatments, such as Ultherapy provide non-surgical alternatives to skin tightening surgeries, such as a facelift.

Cool Sculpting – Freeze away fat
There are many non-invasive fat reduction treatments hitting the market. Most of the treatments use thermal energy, from lasers or radiofrequency, to melt away fat. Cool Sculpting distinguishes itself as the only FDA cleared fat reduction treatment to use controlled cooling to freeze away fat. Also known as fat freezing, Cool Sculpting is the most popular non-invasive fat reduction treatment in the world. It uses a clinically developed process known as cryolipolysis, which exposes subcutaneous fat cells to freezing temperatures without damaging the overlying skin. Scientific studies show that one Cool Sculpting treatment can reduce stubborn fat by 25%.¹
While liposuction is a more appropriate option for obese patients, healthy men and women who struggle from stubborn bulges that resist diet and exercise prefer Cool Sculpting because of its quick, painless treatments that require no downtime.
Cool Sculpting is ideal for treating notorious problem areas such as belly fat, love handles, thigh fat, bra bulge, upper arm fat, double chins and more. Results look natural and once fat cells are destroyed and excreted from the body following a cryolipolysis treatment, those fat cells cannot grow back, leading to long lasting, natural looking reductions in fat. ¹
SKIN TIGHTENING WITH ULTHERAPY
Ultherapy is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that lifts, firms, and tightens skin on the face, brow, neck, chin and décolletage. This treatment is popular among women who have mild skin laxity but do not want to undergo the knife with a facelift.
Ultherapy utilizes advanced ultrasound energy to stimulate the skin tissue located in the dermis. This triggers a natural rejuvenation process that promotes the production of new collagen. Collagen is the structural protein found within the skin that provides an internal scaffolding to hold the skin up and keep it firm and taut. As we get older, existing collagen frameworks begin to break down and production of new collagen begins to slow down. Ultherapy reinvigorates collagen production, effectively lifting, toning, and firming skin.
