Body Contouring Q & A
What is body contouring?
Body contouring is a treatment that permanently eliminates a portion of targeted fat cells without the need for surgical intervention. It’s a great fit for many men and women who’ve struggled to reach their fitness goals and need a little help to get over the finish line.
Body contouring is sometimes referred to as nonsurgical fat reduction. There are several methods of performing body contouring, but all share the same end result: a permanent decrease in the number of fat cells in the treated area and more refined physical contouring.
How does body contouring work?
Body contouring works by using heat, cold, or injected deoxycholic acid to damage fat cells. The best way to understand body contouring is to think about how your body stores fat.
You have thousands of fat cells spread throughout your body, most of which lie in a layer just beneath your skin. Those cells have an astounding ability to expand and contract to accommodate more or less fat.
Body contouring works by damaging the structural integrity of your fat cells. Once that damage occurs, the cells can no longer hold accumulated fat. That fat drains from the cells and the cells collapse. Your lymphatic system handles the released fat and cellular debris, clearing it from the body.
Once a fat cell is destroyed, it’s gone for good. It will not regenerate, and the treated area will simply have fewer fat cells.
Is body contouring a weight-loss treatment?
While body contouring does decrease the total number of fat cells in your body, it isn’t an effective way to lose weight. That’s because your remaining fat cells can still expand if you consume more calories than you burn.
Body contouring is best suited for men and women who’ve achieved and can maintain a healthy, stable weight. If you’re interested in weight loss, Kaizen Medispa offers an excellent medically supervised weight-loss plan that can help you reach your goals without compromising your health.
Kaizen also offers state-of-the-art treatments that improve the appearance of cellulite and tighten your skin, both common concerns among men and women who’ve lost a significant amount of weight.
