After major weight loss, excess skin and fat tend to stay on your body. Body contouring is a way of getting rid of excess fat or skin on your body, but it isn’t intended to be a weight loss method.
There are several available methods of body contouring, both surgical and noninvasive. Dr. Furman offers SculpSure, a noninvasive body contouring method that uses a laser to trim down pesky areas of fat and give you a smoother, slimmer silhouette.
Laser body contouring is a noninvasive method of body contouring that involves no recovery time, making it a preferred method for busy patients. Laser body contouring technologies like SculpSure involve a laser that uses heat to kill fat cells which your body eventually reabsorbs.
Each laser body contouring procedure lasts around 25 minutes, and you’ll likely need multiple sessions to get the best results. You’ll be able to see the results of laser body contouring around 12 weeks after your session.
Dr. Furman evaluates you to ensure that you are a good candidate for body contouring. You might be a good candidate if:
The procedure is safe with very few side effects compared to other body contouring techniques. Before your appointment, Dr. Furman answers any additional questions that you have about your treatment and gives you instructions on how to maximize its benefit.
If you opt for a surgical method of body contouring, there are several risks involved that you’ll need to consider before committing. SculpSure, Dr. Furman’s preferred method of body contouring, has very few risks and side effects. You may feel mild discomfort during the procedure, and you might notice some short-term swelling in the applied area.
If you have excess body fat or skin that won’t go away with continued diet and exercise, call or schedule an appointment online with Neil Furman, DO, to find out more about body contouring.
