What is Body Contouring and Skin Tightening – Body contouring is a term used for a wide range of procedures that reshape, redefine, tighten, tone and improve the overall appearance of your body. Body contouring includes implants, redistributing body fat, abdominal etching, spider vein treatment, cellulite treatments, expended abdominoplasty, a full body lift, and other procedures.
Those who undergo weight loss procedure like gastric bypass and lap band placement are often candidates for body contouring procedures. The result of rapid and dramatic weight loss experienced by those who were once obese often results in excess skin that has lost elasticity and tone. Weight loss patients often opt to undergo procedures to tighten and reshape the areas affected by this rapid weight loss.
A full body lift is a popular body contouring opinion when rapid body weight loss affects several areas. Because this rapid weight loss causes skin to become saggy and loose, the skin must be tightened. Usually, the procedure most common for this reduction is abdominoplasty or a tummy tuck. Other areas that have saggy and crepe-like skin include the upper arms, legs, breasts, upper thighs, and buttocks.
There are procedures to tighten loose and saggy skin that doesn’t require surgery. Using cosmetic procedures that target specific areas of fat depends on what area or areas of your body you want to focus. It also depends on your goals, preferences plus your anatomy.
Types of Non-Surgical Body Contouring
CoolSculpting targets body fat by freezing techniques. CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure that involves no needles or any anesthesia. CoolSculpting targets areas of fat with a process that freezes fat cells. The fat cells then collapse and die, and your body naturally eliminates these cells over the next few weeks. There is little or no downtime with CoolSculpting.
Liposuction is used to remove more significant areas of unwanted fat. It can also be used in small delicate areas. Liposuction contours areas of your body by removing fat in a careful, customized way. Liposuction doesn’t just remove fat but gives technicians the ability to create contour in any area of the body. Liposuction once was invasive and required a long recovery process. However, today liposuction is much gentler and minimally invasive.
Liposculpture is like liposuction or is in the same cosmetic family. Liposculpture is a more advanced cosmetic surgery and designed to perform excessive body contouring by removing and reshaping fat deposits. It is used to enhance the definition of muscles and remove fat from the stomach, neck, and chin. You will need a local anesthetic to keep swelling and bleeding to a minimum, but liposculpture does achieve precise results. If you have more significant excess fat, consider liposculpture.
BTL EXILIS ULTRA
BTL Exilis Ultra is an exclusive device that simultaneously combines radio frequencies and ultrasound to tighten skin and heat sculpting to reduce stubborn fat. There is little downtime when you use the BTL Exilis Ultra. The idea behind the BTL Exilis Ultra is heat. Heat penetrates the skin, and the surrounding fat cells overheat and die. Dead fat cells are flushed out through your lymphatic system. Heat also stimulates the production of collagen that helps to tighten your skin and reduce wrinkles. If you have only a small amount of excess skin and want to diminish the look of crepe-like skin and tighten loose and sagging skin, this is a very non-invasive technique.
Another option for body sculpting is VASER liposuction that is effective and has quick recovery time. VASER is a type of liposuction using ultrasound waves to break up and dislodge fat before it is removed. VASER liposuction can sculp areas carefully with less swelling and bruising. You can also use VASER liposuction with the fat transfer which means you reduce fat in one area and add volume to another section of your body.
Fat transfer is a body contouring technique that uses liposuction to remove fat and inject it into other areas. Fat transfer is generally used to contour areas like the butt or your breasts.
Different surgical life procedures can be used for body contouring. These procedures are useful for those who have loose skin and excess pockets of fat. Conventional lifts include the breast, butt, and arms. A surgical procedure like a lift may give you more satisfying results than a nonsurgical procedure.
