One of the toughest aspects of weight loss is once the majority of the weight has been lost but there seem to be a few more pounds of stubborn fat or excess skin left behind that you can’t get rid of no matter what you do. Body sculpting is a great option to help with those final steps of a weight loss treatment through non-invasive treatments that will help shed those excess fat deposits and tighten the loosened skin.
Body sculpting is a term that encompasses several different methods of procedure that are used to contour the body by eliminating excess body fat and eliminating excess skin. It is very common for those who have lost a significant amount of weight to struggle with losing those last few pounds that are being held onto as pockets of excess fat in areas such as the hips or thighs or to have some excess skin left behind that they can’t seem to be rid of. Body contouring is available through several methods, the options including some surgical and non-surgical procedures to make the body appear to be slimmer, smoother, and more youthful.
While liposuction is a more invasive option that is widely known, there are many options available on the market for non-invasive body contouring procedures that are able to provide just as beautiful results in only a few sessions without the risks that come with a surgical procedure. With non-surgical body contouring procedures, it will take a little bit longer to see the final results, but there will likely be some noticeable results after the first couple of sessions as the fat deposits are destroyed and there is a reduction in the appearance of cellulite in the skin. Many patients will be able to enjoy those initial noticeable results within 1 to 3 months following their initial appointments, and within 3 to 6 months after their final appointment. Body contouring procedures are typically able to provide long-term results as fat cells do not regenerate, making it uncommon for patients to need maintenance treatments so long as they continue to live a healthy lifestyle to prevent gaining weight back. The vast majority of patients will be satisfied with their final results from the initial treatments, but it is possible to do a couple of more sessions in order to achieve more dramatic results once the body has fully healed.
There are a few options of body sculpting treatments to choose from that can all offer slightly different results depending on your needs. For patients who wish to eliminate excess fat while also tightening the loose skin, there are multiple options available for this that have proven to be very effective. Through the destruction of the fat cells, the other surrounding cells and muscles are remodeled to be tighter and stronger, making them provide an overall tightened appearance on the surface of the skin, reducing the appearance of loose skin that has been left behind after a significant weight loss.
With the destruction of fat cells, some weight loss will take place during body sculpting procedures, however, these treatments are not intended to be a primary weight loss treatment. These procedures can help patients to lose those last few pounds but will take several weeks for the body to process the destroyed fat cells as waste and are not able to effectively destroy a significant amount of excess fat. Body contouring procedures are recommended for use either after a significant amount of weight has been lost and the weight has stabilized to a maintainable place where the patient is unlikely to gain the weight back, or for those who have developed fat deposits that no amount of exercise or dieting can seem to eradicate. Body contouring treatments are only able to destroy a certain percentage of the fat cells in the area that is being treated, which is why multiple sessions are typically required, eventually helping patients to shed a few more pounds that were being carried in that excess fat and skin. However, these treatments are used on target areas and should not be used all over the body, making them ineffective for significant weight loss treatments.
