Body Contouring Q & A

What is body contouring?

Body contouring is a type of treatment that reduces the amount of fat on your body. It isn’t a weight loss treatment; rather, it targets your fat cells and kills them so your body can reabsorb them.

The results are permanent assuming you don’t gain an excess amount of weight later because the cells that remain can plump up.

How does body contouring work?

At Medical Center West, Dr. Berry contours your body using SculpSure. SculpSure is an innovative medical device that uses a laser to target, heat, and destroy the fat cells beneath your skin.

During the 12 weeks following your procedure, your body’s natural systems flush out the dead fat cells.

You’ll likely need several sessions to get the results that you want. Each session takes about 25 minutes in the Medical Center West office and doesn’t require any downtime for recovery. You can go back to work right after your treatment with little chance of side effects.

How can body contouring improve my body?

Body contouring gives your body a slimmer and more toned look. With SculpSure, you can target the fat on your:

  • Abdomen
  • Love handles
  • Back
  • Thighs
  • Under the chin (double chin)

These areas tend to accumulate fat that’s hard to lose, even with a perfectly healthy and active lifestyle. Or, after losing a lot of weight, you might still have some fat in these areas that makes you look larger than you are. SculpSure can help get rid of that excess fat.

Are body contouring treatments safe?

SculpSure’s technology is FDA approved as a safe treatment for body contouring. Since it’s noninvasive, there is very little risk involved for those who are candidates for treatment. You might experience a few mild side effects, like:

  • Discomfort
  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Bruising

SculpSure carries less risk of side effects than its body contouring competitors, too. If you do notice side effects from the treatment, they should go away within a day or so.

Getting down to your ideal size doesn’t always mean easily achieving the gorgeous figure that you want. To find out if you’re a candidate for body contouring with SculpSure, call Medical Center West, or book your appointment online today.
