Your Guide to: Non-surgical Body Sculpting
Body sculpting is a broad field of cosmetic treatments and procedures geared at helping both men and women achieve a slimmer and more toned and contoured physical appearance. Body sculpting procedures are non-surgical, which means that they offer an array of benefits, and makes them appealing to a greater group of prospective patients.
Because of this, as well as the effectiveness of some of today’s most popular procedures, bodysculpting is quickly growing. In this guide, you will learn more about some of the leading types of bodysculpting, along with other important information you may need.
Body sculpting vs. Liposuction
Is bodysculpting the same as liposuction? While in some cases, the end results and the goals of the patient are similar, these are very different types of procedures. It is important to understand how they are different, and when each one should be used or avoided.
The first and most important thing to note is that bodysculpting is an entire field of treatments, all of which are non-surgical and minimally invasive or non-invasive. Liposuction, on the other hand, is a surgical procedure. Even the more technologically advanced versions of liposuction that offer shortened recovery times and reduced risk, are still surgical procedures.
This means that body sculpting carries a number of important advantages as compared to liposuction. You do not have to deal with any of the potential risks of complication or side effect due to anaesthesia or any other aspect of the surgery. Procedures are quick and are relatively easy. They do not require much recovery time, if any, and do not require hospital stays. Bodysculpting procedures also cost less than liposuction.
All of these reasons help to explain why bodysculpting is such a popular choice – more affordable, easier, less risky, and yet effective and successful.
It should be noted that most bodysculpting procedures are not designed for individuals who are significantly overweight or obese, or for those who still in the midst of losing a great deal of weight. Bodysculpting treatments are for individuals who are already at a stable weight.
Body sculpting targets specific areas on the body to remove stubborn fatty deposits that have been resistant to proper nutrition and exercise.
Types of Body Sculpting Treatments
Mesotherapy utilises injections of a wide range of ingredients and compounds directly into subcutaneous fat, designed to target adipose fat cells and produce rupture and cell death.
Lipolysis utilises localised injections to introduce medications and vitamins into the body which are specifically used to dissolve fatty cellular walls. The destroyed cells are naturally metabolised and excreted from the system.
LipoSonix uses high-intensity ultrasound energy waves to target fat cells and tissue and destroy them.
CoolSculpting is a procedure in which fatty tissues are targeted by localised cooling which causes cell death to subcutaneous fat without damaging skin or other tissue.
There is a huge array of procedures that are designed to reduce cellulite. The goal is to produce a smoother and tighter appearance to the skin in specific areas including buttocks, thighs and abdomen.
Though this is just a quick overview of some of the most well known types of bodysculpting, there are many other types of procedures and treatments available. As with any medical procedure, be sure to consult with a medical clinic that you trust to determine the best course of action based upon your own needs, preferences and circumstances.
The good news is that there is a solution for just about everybody today. As you continue your research, be sure to consider the potential cost of treatment, any risks or side effects, the effectiveness and the ultimate end goal of different procedures.
