Body sculpting (or body contouring) is an umbrella term for cosmetic procedures aimed at eliminating stubborn pockets of fat. Whether or not this type of treatment is ideal for you depends on the area being treated, your goals, where your body is at now, and your personal preferences, among other factors.
How Does Body Sculpting Work?
The goal of body sculpting is to get rid of fat cells in problem areas. Surgical options simply remove the fat cells. Non-surgical options, however, seek to “destroy” them to the point that they can no longer store fat.
Why Choose Body Sculpting?
There are many reasons that people turn to body sculpting to help them look and feel their best. Many people find that no amount of dieting and exercise has helped them reach their body goals. For women, pregnancy and breastfeeding have a tendency to affect the shape of their body. These are both examples of situations where body sculpting can help.
Another reason people like these procedures is they can help them to tighten up their skin after they have lost a significant amount of weight. Gravity can also take a toll on skin tightness, and body sculpting via BTL could be the solution.
Everyone’s body is different. There are several common areas that people struggle with, however. Body sculpting is most often used on the abdomen.
Who is a Good Candidate?
These procedures are great for helping you get to your body goals, but certain things make you a good candidate. Body sculpting is great for people who are:
At or near their body weight
Committed to maintaining a healthy lifestyle
In good general health
Positive and have realistic expectations for the results
Not suffering from medical conditions that can lead to complications
Remember, these treatments are not meant to treat obesity. It is important to have any major weight loss done beforehand.
