Body Sculpting or body contouring continues to grow in popularity as more and more individuals are striving to achieve the perfect body shape. There are several different cosmetic and surgical procedures currently available that can help men and women to sculpt some or all of their body’s. The key is to research each treatment option and discover which procedure will work the best for your specific needs. The most common Body Sculpting methods that patients currently undergo are liposuction, SmartLipo, body lifts and body implant surgeries.
Liposuction: liposuction is the most traditional of all the Body Sculpting procedures. It is an invasive procedure that works to remove excess fat from any area of the face or body. Tiny incisions are made in the skin where a cannula is then inserted. The cannula is then attached to vacuum suction which literally ‘sucks’ the excess fat from between the skin and muscle. The results are a much more defined body contour.
SmartLipo: the revolutionary new SmartLipo procedure is a technologically advanced counterpart to traditional liposuction. This procedure is still considered invasive, but it involves less risk, less downtime and better results. SmartLipo requires only on incision in the treatment area, a cannula is inserted into the incision and within the cannula is a laser fiber. The laser fiber liquefies excess fat cells so that it can then be removed from the treatment site. Less pain, less downtime and better results make this a fantastic alternative to traditional liposuction.
Body Lift: a body lift involves lifting excess and sagging skin from some or all parts of the body. As we age, gravity slowly takes over and our once tight, smooth skin starts to sag. Body Lifts work to remove excess skin and tighten remaining skin for the return of the tight, smooth shape. Oftentimes body lifts are performed in conjunction with liposuction because more often than not, patients have both excess skin and excess fat they are looking to get rid of.
Body Implants: body implants are becoming more and more popular for both men and women. They are great Body Sculpting technique that can help individuals to create and maintain their desired body shape. Implants are most often placed in the chest, breasts, buttocks, cheeks and calves, but implants can be placed just about anywhere. Genetics sometimes doesn’t allow us to have the body shape we desire; implants help us achieve the look we are going for.
All of these Body Sculpting methods are very common and very popular. Before undergoing any body contouring procedure, weigh all the pros and cons of each to ensure you are making the best decision possible.
