13 Dec Body Contouring – Get back your curves
Body contouring is also known as body sculpting. Where we are usually targeting only some certain parts of our body, in order to achieve the shape that we want. For example, we could remove the fat of our double chin so that we can enhance our jaw line, and subsequently look more edgy and structured.
People who are aiming for body contouring or sculpting are mainly those who focus more on getting the body shape – lines or curves of the body. If the question “which figure do you emphasize more? Figure on the mirror or figure on the weighing scale?”. This is the group of patients who will answer, “MIRROR!”.
How it works and treatment options?
There are few non-surgical ways to kill our fat cells. They are:
- Fat Freezing – Cristal
It is a cryolipolysis treatment method that uses cold/freezing technique to reduce the number of fat cells of the targeted area.
- Heat Melting – LeShape
It penetrates the skin and heats subcutaneous adipocytes which leads to fat cell disruption.
- HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound)
Ultrasound therapy (HIFU) shoots ultrasound waves into the skin, where they heat targeted fat tissue, tightening and stimulating the face/body’s natural collagen production.
- Fat Meso Injection
A technique that uses injections of specially mixed formula to rejuvenate and tighten skin, as well as remove excess fat.
In a surgical way, there is the option of liposuction or tummy tuck.
Doctor will advise the treatment method according to your conditions and treatment area, as certain treatments may only be used on certain body parts.
What are the benefits of these treatments?
Body sculpting is important to be done by certified doctors. As once the fat is removed, it is not replaceable. Hence wrong sculpting might cause indentation issues. Or sometimes might cause burned or infection.
Who is suitable for these treatments?
Everyone who is having foldable fat (subcutaneous fat) issues are suitable. All methods above only kill the fat cell underneath the skin BUT NOT visceral fat which is deep inside our abdomen.
What result to expect?
Is the treatment result immediate after one session?
Depends on modalities used,
- Fat freeze can reduce up to 25% fat cell each sessions
- Heat Melting can reduce up to 10% fat cell each sessions
- Mesolipolysis can reduce up to 5%
Hence, to achieve the percentage of fat cells that you need/desire, combinations of different modalities or repetition of certain modalities may be required.
Killed fat cells will remain in our body and wait for our immune response to eliminate the fat cells. The whole elimination process will take about 2-3 months to complete.
Is there any downtime or side effect?
You may exercise and resume with your daily activities right after treatment, but there may be some reactions at the treated area after certain treatments, such as:
- Deep itchiness
Some might experience lumps after the treatment, which will resolve in 2-3 months.
