Body Contouring Q & A
What is body contouring?
Body contouring is a noninvasive way to alter the shape of your body without liposuction and other similar surgeries. Body contouring treatments destroy your fat cells, causing your body to resorb them, helping your body become more toned.
At Laguna Beach Aesthetics, Dr. O’Connell might advise against body contouring if you still have a long way to go with your weight loss. The treatments work best when you only have a small amount of difficult-to-lose fat in your targeted region, and they don’t help you lose any significant amount of weight.
How does body contouring work?
Dr. O’Connell uses TempSure®, the number one nonsurgical fat reduction treatment, for body contouring.
TempSure treatments initiate a process called cryolipolysis, or fat freezing. The TempSure applicators emit controlled freezing temperatures deep into the layers of fat beneath your skin. This freezes your fat cells and causes your skin to constrict and tighten. It takes 35-45 minutes to treat a target area.
Over the course of one to three months following your treatment, your body filters out the dead fat cells. You don’t have to take any time off of work because this process happens subtly, and the treatment doesn’t harm you. Dr. O’Connell advises you to come back 30 days after your first treatment for another round. You can see the full effect in about two months after your second treatment.
Which parts of my body can I target with body contouring treatments?
As a unique individual, you might accumulate fat in different places than friends or family members. Thankfully, TempSure is designed to treat almost any part of your body with a little extra fat, especially if it doesn’t respond to your efforts to eat a better diet or exercise more frequently. At Laguna Beach Aesthetics, Dr. O’Connell can help you design a body contouring treatment plan that targets fat in these places:
- Double chin
- Jaw and jowls
- Bra area
- Upper arms
- Love handles
- Under the buttocks
You can expect to see a 25-40% reduction in the amount of fat in the area you treat. After discussing your options with Dr. O’Connell, you can decide to treat just one area of fat or several across your body.
