Body Contouring Q & A

What is body sculpting?

When you’re trying to lose weight and tone your body, several aesthetic services can help you accomplish your goals. Body sculpting involves the use of fat freezing technology to freeze off your body fat in targeted areas, such as:

  • Abdomen
  • Bra area
  • Back
  • Chin and jawline
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Upper arms
  • Love handles

Hermosa Cosmetic Center can contour areas of the body that aren’t responsive to diet or exercise, like excess fat around the abdominal region or cellulite on the thighs.

Unlike traditional liposuction, body sculpting at Hermosa Cosmetic Center is a procedure that helps to freeze fat, and those fat cells then die off so you eliminate them naturally.

Am I a candidate for body sculpting?

Regardless of your body type, many patients are good candidates for body sculpting. You generally must be in good health to have a fat-freezing body sculpting procedure, and it's essential to understand that body sculpting services are not a replacement for weight loss. They can enhance your results and show off your new body after you’ve lost weight.

Are there side effects of body sculpting?

Body sculpting through fat freezing procedures are much less invasive than traditional liposuction. However, some people experience minimal side effects, like swelling, bruising, or tenderness in the treated area.

You might need to avoid strenuous activities for a few days, minimize your exposure to sunlight, or manage discomfort with over-the-counter pain relievers.

Most people, however, are back to their normal activities quickly. Hermosa Cosmetic Center may recommend more than one procedure, depending on the number of treatment areas. 

How can I improve my body sculpting results?

Patients get the best results with body sculpting procedures when they combine them with an action plan for weight loss, and you can seek nutrition advice, exercise recommendations, and more weight loss solutions from the team at Hermosa Cosmetic Center.

In some cases, Hermosa Cosmetic Center might recommend achieving your goal weight or coming close to it, before receiving a body sculpting procedure. Doing so ensures that changes in your weight don’t affect your body sculpting results.

To maintain your perfect shape, eat a balanced diet and keep up a regular exercise routine. Take care of your skin and stay hydrated, too.
