Does this sound familiar? You make a commitment to lose weight and you upend your life to hit your goal. You eat healthy, get in your cardio, and keep up your weight training to create fat-burning lean muscle mass, but still can’t get the body you envisioned at the start.
It’s a time-worn tale and happens to countless people. The reason this happens is complicated, but the short answer is that as you get older, your body stores fat differently and draws energy (calories and fat) from certain places, leaving other places untapped. No amount of diet or exercise seems to target these trouble areas — this is called spot reduction, and it’s just not possible without outside help.
That’s where we come in. Our team of body experts at Aesthetic Solutions, Dr. Ada Noh and Dr. William Ceraso, are highly trained to treat your diet- and exercise-resistant fat pockets with body contouring. And because we know that dramatic weight loss and aging can leave your skin loose and saggy, we also offer an effective skin tightening treatment. All our aesthetic services are nonsurgical, noninvasive, and completely safe and painless.
Here, we take a look at some of the traditional body contouring options (surgical and invasive) that were used prior to the inception of the revolutionary techniques we use, TempSure® Envi.
You have choices when it comes to body contouring. Depending on your body goals, your age, and your unique traits and health history, you may opt for treatments running from mild to extreme. Here are some of your options.
When you retain fat stores that you want to banish in your abdomen, arms, buttocks, thighs, or back, liposuction can suck it out. This technique uses an instrument to insert a long tube into your body and into the fat pocket so it can be vacuumed out. This is not a substitute for weight loss, and it can cause tissue injury.
After weight loss or after giving birth, you may have excess skin that won’t shrink back to its original shape, size, and texture. The tummy tuck surgically removes fat and excess skin and reconnects muscles that separate during pregnancy and childbirth.
Body contouring not only involves the subtraction of fat, it also includes the addition of fat in some areas that are lacking it to achieve the optimal silhouette. In this case, you may opt for fat grafting, a surgical procedure that removes fat from one area of your body (such as your hips) and transplants it in another (such as your breasts). It’s a win-win procedure.
At Aesthetic Solutions, we treat your stubborn fat pockets and cellulite with a completely different approach.
TempSure Envi uses radiofrequency waves that penetrate deep down into the inner layer of your skin where it heats up your fat cells and destroys them. You may notice a difference right away, but the big change comes over the next several weeks as those dead cells leave your body and your bumps and bulges fade away.
This amazing technology also triggers your body to produce more collagen and elastin, the two essential proteins responsible for the structure and elasticity of your skin. So, not only do you lose fat and reduce the appearance of stubborn cellulite, but your skin is tighter, firmer, and more youthful-looking.
And you get all this without surgery, tissue damage, pain, or down time. You can go right back to work or shopping or golfing or whatever you have on your to-do list.
