Body Contouring Q&A

What is body contouring?

Body contouring eliminates fat cells by rupturing them so your lymphatic system can drain out their contents. While a body contouring procedure won’t reduce your weight significantly, it can target and minimize the pockets of fat that give you the most trouble while working out or sticking to a healthy diet. 

The Dermatology Center offers safe body contouring with no pain or side effects. The dermatologists use the Ideal Curves® system for body contouring, which uses patented Ultimate Contour™ technology to eliminate fat and tighten skin simultaneously. Ultimate Contour technology combines ultrasound energy with radiofrequency.

Your Ideal Curves body contouring treatment not only destroys fat cells but also contracts existing collagen fibers and causes new fibers of collagen and elastin to grow. The result is less skin laxity, smoother skin, and less dimpling. 

Which parts of my body can I contour?

Your unique body composition might hold fat in some areas and not others. Similarly, you might see more skin laxity in certain areas than in others. Some of the most commonly targeted areas with Ideal Curves body contouring are:

  • Upper arms
  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Back
  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Calves

Body contouring treatments of this type are typically most effective in reaching desired results when you start the process within 15 pounds of your goal weight. There are a few other criteria that make you a great candidate, but Ideal Curves is gentle and safe for nearly anyone.

How many body contouring treatments do I need?

After your initial consultation at the Dermatology Center, you have a clearer idea of the time it might take to see your ideal results. Your dermatologist tells you the approximate number of treatments you need considering the number of areas you want to target and their fat content and degree of skin laxity.

It can take up to six sessions to reach the best possible result from body contouring, and each session takes 10-40 minutes, depending on the targeted area. 

How long does it take to see results from body contouring?

You can resume your normal routine right away after each body contouring session, no need to stop exercising or take time off work. You can see some results immediately after the session, while others take several months to appear as your body metabolizes the loosened fat cells. 

The results are long-lasting, though you might need maintenance treatments once or twice a year to keep enjoying the full effect. You should also be mindful of your calorie intake and exercise habits as they have an influence over how your body looks and whether you gain weight.
