Do you wish you could have a firmer, smoother body but are not ready to try a fat transfer or other invasive cosmetic surgery? At Advanced Liposuction Center we offer another option: Body Contouring. To perform this procedure, we use the VelaShape II, the first FDA-approved technique for non-invasive cellulite reduction and body contouring. This revolutionary technology uses infrared light energy, bi-polar radiofrequency and mechanical and vacuum massage to achieve lasting results. The treatment is safe, effective and fast, with virtually no down time.

The combination of heat and the vacuum rollers delivers a smooth, mechanical massage of the skin and facilitates an efficient heat energy delivery which results in an increase of stored energy, lymphatic drainage and metabolism, while shrinking actual chambers of fat and fat cell size.

  1. Beautiful Results

Gradually, your new body will be revealed. Thanks to the combination of energies, known as elos, which precisely heat targeted fatty tissues in the areas receiving treatment, even after the first body contour treatment you will notice smoother, more evened out skin and a firmer figure. You will begin to see a circumference reduction and noticeable re-shaping of the treatment area in as little as 4 treatments. We ask clients to be patient with their bodies and remember that this is a slow process. At first, you will notice that your clothes are becoming looser and beginning to fit better. Remember that muscle weighs more than fat so you won’t see a reduction on the scale as rapidly as you will see the change in your clothing and the overall appearance of your body.

  1. Long Lasting Results

Body contouring is a long lasting process which means after it’s done it will probably last for years.

It’s because the excess fat present in your body isn’t because of large number of fat cells, it’s because your old fat cells grows larger and larger.

But when body contouring is done, the fat cells are removed completely and they can’t grow back in that area again. No matter how much time passes, your treated area will be safe.

Even sometimes the results can last long if you have a healthy body and maintain a healthy weight.

Fat cells won’t grow back in the same area but they can grow in the untreated area therefore you should treat those areas too.

  1. Multiple Body Parts Can Be Treated Easily

This is the best thing about body contouring, no matter where fat cells are, they can be removed and provide you the body of your dreams.

Most of the people treat these areas with the help of body contouring:

  • Chins
  • Chest
  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Back
  • Thighs
  • Knees
  • Armpits
  • Love handles

These areas are one of the most common treatment area, if you have any other areas that needs treatment then you should ask your doctor about it.

  1. You Can Be Comfortable With Your New Look

Finally the treatment is done which means you can be comfortable with the new look of your body.

Now there is no need to feel uncomfortable or shy away from social situations, you can walk in public without any kind of embarrassment.

You can wear the bikini you always wanted to wear and be happy.

Just make sure you follow all the recovery tips given by your doctor, it’s the best thing you can do to improve your results and recover faster than others.

5. No downtime is necessary at all

You must give your body time to recover properly after surgery, which could take weeks or longer. This entails refraining from engaging in physical activity and, in certain cases, even avoiding baths or swimming pools.

But with non-surgical CoolSculpting, you can immediately resume your daily activities after your treatment session. This implies that you can receive treatment during your lunch break or other free time and immediately resume your normal activities, including exercising.

How does body contouring affect existing scars or stretch marks?

Body contouring can have varying effects on existing scars or stretch marks, depending on the type of procedure and the individual’s skin characteristics. In some cases, body contouring procedures, such as liposuction or tummy tucks, can improve the appearance of stretch marks or scars by removing excess skin and tightening the remaining skin. However, it’s important to note that body contouring is not specifically designed to treat scars or stretch marks, and the extent of improvement can vary.

What are the limitations of body contouring?

Body contouring can be highly effective, but it also has limitations. Some of the limitations include:

  1. Not a weight loss solution: Body contouring is not a weight loss procedure. It is intended to remove excess skin and improve body shape after significant weight loss or to enhance body contours that are resistant to diet and exercise.
  2. Limited effectiveness for cellulite: While body contouring can improve the appearance of cellulite to some extent, it is not a cure for cellulite and may not completely eliminate its appearance.
  3. Scarring: Body contouring procedures, particularly surgical ones like tummy tucks, can leave scars. The extent of scarring can vary depending on the procedure and individual healing factors.
  4. Possible need for multiple procedures: Achieving optimal results may require multiple body contouring procedures, especially for individuals with significant excess skin or multiple areas of concern.

Are the results of body contouring immediately noticeable, or do they develop over time?

The results of body contouring can vary depending on the type of procedure and individual healing factors. In general, some results may be immediately noticeable, especially in terms of changes in body shape and contour. However, final results typically develop over time as swelling subsides, and the body adjusts to its new shape.
