What is Body Contouring?
At Specialty MedSpa and Urgent Care, we offer two types of body contouring treatments: Beautifill and Accufit.
- Beautifill uses your own fat to augment areas that need more volume while removing unwanted fat in other areas.
- Accufit is a non-surgical procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to melt fat and tighten skin, resulting in a smoother and more toned appearance. Both procedures are minimally invasive and require little downtime, allowing you to achieve your desired body shape with ease.
How Does Body Contouring Work?
The specific method used will depend on the individual patient's needs and goals.
However, the overall goal of body contouring is to create a more proportionate and aesthetically pleasing body shape by removing excess fat and skin, resulting in a more toned and defined appearance.
Who is a Candidate for Body Contouring?
Ideal candidates are those who have lost a significant amount of weight and have excess skin or stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to traditional weight loss methods.
Additionally, candidates should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations for the results they can achieve. Our team can help determine if body contouring is the right choice for you.
Frequently Asked Questions
The results of body contouring can be long-lasting, but they are not necessarily permanent. Patients can help maintain their results through healthy diet and exercise habits.
Preparing for a body contouring procedure typically involves maintaining a healthy diet and exercise regimen, quitting smoking, and avoiding certain medications and supplements that can increase the risk of bleeding. Your medical provider will provide you with specific instructions to follow before and after the procedure.
As with any surgical procedure, there are risks associated with body contouring, including bleeding, infection, and scarring. However, these risks can be minimized by choosing an experienced and qualified medical provider.
The level of discomfort experienced during a body contouring procedure can vary depending on the type of procedure performed, as well as the individual patient's pain tolerance. However, most patients will experience some degree of discomfort or pain after the procedure, which can be managed with pain medication prescribed by the medical professional.
Scarring is a common concern for many patients considering body contouring. While some scarring is inevitable with any surgical procedure, a skilled surgeon will take care to place incisions in inconspicuous areas whenever possible. Additionally, scars will typically fade over time and can often be hidden under clothing or swimwear.
