What is Body Contouring & Shaping?
When you have achieved your desired weight, you might realize that you still have resistant areas of fat that have stubbornly remained after your diet, exercise, and weight loss. Your body is not infinitely moldable, but we have some great treatments that will help you achieve the body contouring and shape you desire.
Laser liposuction, or SmartLipo
Liposuction, or lipoplasty, is a treatment that removes fat cells from your body. It is ideal for those areas of persistent, localized fat deposits. SmartLipo uses laser heat to soften or liquefy the fat, making it easier to remove and usually resulting in very little bruising. Because SmartLipo uses laser heat, it also tightens the skin. Liposuction alone does not tighten the skin, and can result in sagging or dimpling with patients who have lost skin elasticity. Vedas Medical Spa treats your shape with SmartLipo.
Emsculpt body contouring
Get the best ab definition (think “sixpack”) and buttlift with Emsculpt. Emsculpt’s electromagnetic pulses strenuously contract your ab or butt muscles to build new muscle, highlight definition, and reduce fat. This totally non-invasive treatment needs no preparation or post-procedure care beyond a periodic maintenance treatment.
Coolsculpting, or cryolipolysis, turns SmartLipo on its head and freezes the fat through controlled cooling. Unlike SmartLipo, Coolsculpting depends on your own body, over time, to naturally process the fat and eliminate the dead cells. Once they are gone, fat cells are gone permanently.
A fat pocket under the skin can cause a Double Chin. We can address this fat pocket in several ways.
PDO Threads may be used to lift tissue and neck skin.
To remove the fat, it can be treated with Kybella, after which it is naturally eliminated.
A series of Venus Freeze treatments—also a procedure that uses radio frequency to break up fat cells and tighten the skin, can also be successful.
