Body Contouring Q&A

What is body contouring?

Body contouring is an innovative type of treatment that gets rid of hard-to-lose areas of fat and gives you a shapely silhouette. You can use body contouring treatments to tone down the fat on your:

  • Abdomen
  • Double chin
  • Sides
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks

Even though body contouring gets rid of your fat, it isn’t a weight loss treatment. Instead, it’s often used to reduce small pockets of fat that are resistant to dieting and exercise or to minimize excess skin after a drastic weight loss.


How does body contouring work?

At Symphony Medical Spa, Dr. Forbes uses SculpSure® to contour your body. The SculpSure device uses four applicators to heat your fat cells and destroy them without damaging your skin. On average, patients who have undergone this treatment have enjoyed a 24% reduction in fat in their targeted areas. 

Since body contouring treatments are gentle and nonsurgical, you don’t need to schedule extra time after your appointment for recovery. In fact, you can go back to work the same day! After about six weeks, you’ll begin to see the results as your body flushes out the dead fat cells.


Am I a candidate for body contouring?

Body contouring treatments are relatively gentle, so many patients are great candidates for this non-invasive and straightforward procedure. You may be a candidate for body contouring if:

  • You’re not obese
  • You’re at or near your goal weight
  • You don’t smoke
  • You have realistic goals for treatment
  • You lead a healthy lifestyle
  • You’re in generally good health

Only your doctor can determine if body contouring treatments are the best treatment for your situation and goals. After your initial consultation, during which Dr. Forbes asks about your health, outlook, aesthetic goals, and medical history, Dr. Forbes helps you determine which procedure works best for you and desired results.


What are the risks of body contouring?

Body contouring is a safe, FDA-approved, non-invasive procedure. You might feel some discomfort during your SculpSure session, but it isn’t painful. 

Side effects are minimal and generally temporary. Common side effects from body contouring include:

  • Swelling
  • Stiffness
  • Light bruising
  • Redness

These and other side effects typically go away a few hours after your treatment. If you have concerns or questions about your upcoming body contouring procedure, Dr. Forbes and her team can answer them during your consultation.

Achieving your goal weight is definitely a win, but your shape doesn’t always match up to what you envisioned. To get your ideal figure with safe, noninvasive body contouring, call Symphony Medical Spa or book your consultation online today.
