Body Sculpting Q & A
What is body sculpting?
Body sculpting is a way to eliminate fat cells with the help of laser energy, freezing technology, or other means. This is a noninvasive way to get rid of fat without having to undergo surgery for fat reduction. Body sculpting can help remove stubborn areas of fat that aren’t responding to dieting and exercise.
Does body sculpting hurt?
Body sculpting procedures shouldn’t hurt, although you might experience slight sensations, such as cooling, tingling, or warming, during treatment. These procedures aren’t invasive like liposuction and other surgical fat reduction methods, so there’s no downtime afterward. Dr. Kevorkian lets you know more about what to expect depending on the type of body sculpting you’re having.
Am I a good candidate for body sculpting?
You’re a suitable candidate for body sculpting if you have a hard time getting rid of certain pockets of fat. Body sculpting isn’t meant to help eliminate large amounts of fat, so it’s not for those who are obese. Dr. Kevorkian will let you know if you’re considered a good candidate for body sculpting when you come in for a consultation.
What are the benefits of body sculpting?
Body sculpting isn’t invasive, making it safer than surgical forms of fat reduction. These procedures don’t put you at risk of infections, excessive bleeding, and other complications that accompany surgery. Body sculpting also lets you go back to your usual activities afterward instead of having to restrict them while you heal.
How long do the results of body sculpting last?
Body sculpting results usually don’t take long to start appearing, although this varies from patient to patient. When fat cells are eliminated, they permanently leave your body. However, fat cells can accumulate in the same area, so it’s important to watch your diet and get regular physical activity.
