The idea of undergoing non-surgical body contouring is certainly a tempting one – but there’s something in the back of your mind that’s holding you back. Sure, you’d love to eliminate stubborn fat that just won’t respond to diet and exercise, but is non-surgical body contouring really the answer?
Better yet, does it actually work?
The answer is yes – but it depends on if you are a candidate. The best candidates for non-surgical body contouring:
- Are within 20-30 pounds of their goal weight
- Have stubborn fat deposits that won’t respond to diet/exercise
- Have realistic expectations for their procedure
Non-surgical body contouring procedures vary from technology to technology, but in general they use either laser heat energy, freezing energy, or ultrasound energy to penetrate the dermis to target and destroy stubborn fat cells. These fat cells are naturally killed and removed by the body over the course of two to three months. Non-surgical body contouring can be an excellent solution for candidates who are looking to reduce stubborn fat bulges without resorting to invasive surgery, like liposuction.
Some non-surgical body contouring procedures can be highly effective at removing fat cells, despite involving no surgery or liposuction. For example, clinical studies have shown that CoolSculpting can reduce fat cells by up to 24% in a treatment area.
