You can expect the results of your body contouring treatment to last 6 to 12 months on average. While you're destroying fat cells and tightening your skin, these tissues will still have to adapt to your body. At Integrative Pain and Wellness Center in Southlake, TX, we can monitor your results to ensure you achieve your aesthetic goals. Body contouring is a non-surgical procedure that uses specific cooling to freeze and destroy fat cells.
For patients seeking body contouring results with a single treatment and more immediate fat reduction, minimally invasive liposuction procedures are performed in the comfort and convenience of the office with tumescent anesthesia, avoiding the side effects and cost of general anesthesia. We can monitor your contouring results and determine what is needed to treat your body. Surgical body contouring procedures, such as liposuction, tummy tuck and butt lift, are more invasive than non-surgical options. The term “non-surgical body contouring” usually refers to non-invasive technologies that use energy to pass through the skin and break down fat cells.
Body contouring can give you more confidence and help improve your self-esteem, but it's important to know what to expect before undergoing any cosmetic procedure. Body contouring treatments can be performed on any area of the body, but most commonly they are performed in areas with excess fat or cellulite, such as the thighs, stomach, arms and back. With proper diet and exercise habits after the procedure, you should be able to maintain your new shape for many years. Body contouring can last anywhere from a few weeks to several months, depending on the person's goals and desired results.
While using in-office liposuction procedures to achieve body contouring goals has many benefits, such as that only one treatment is needed, most patients believe that the best benefit is to obtain more immediate, noticeable results. Body contouring can last from a few months to several years, depending on the procedure performed and how well you care for your skin afterwards. Matthew Barker and the experts at the Integrative Pain and Wellness Center in Southlake, Texas, can create a body contouring treatment plan based on your desired needs, so you can get the most out of the procedure. Non-surgical body contouring treatments, such as laser fat reduction, radiofrequency skin tightening, and ultrasound cavitation, are less invasive than surgery, but may not provide the same degree of results.
While using non-surgical procedures to remove unwanted fat has many benefits, such as no downtime, no incisions, and no needles, several treatments, ranging from 8 to 12 weeks apart, are usually required to achieve body contouring goals. The goal of body contouring is to improve the overall appearance of an area, focusing on persistent fat pockets that don't respond to diet or exercise.
