Are you unhappy with certain parts of your body but don’t want to go under the knife to change them? It’s possible to shed those extra pounds with non-surgical body contouring. There are a range of current technologies and procedures available for sculpting the body. But it’s important to first answer this question – Am I a candidate for non-surgical body contouring.

The ‘skinny’ on non-surgical body contouring
Non-surgical body contouring involves the use of energy-based devices to remove unwanted fat in areas such as the abdomen, flanks, hips, and thighs. These systems are attractive alternatives to surgical liposuction, because they don’t require incisions or anesthesia, and downtime is minimal.

Are you a candidate for non-surgical body contouring?
If you have pockets of diet and exercise resistant fat in specific areas, you can certainly benefit from non-surgical body contouring. Ideal candidates should be within 10-20 pounds of their goal weight, and have a BMI (body mass index) of less than 30. Candidates should also be healthy, and not have any chronic health issues.

Candidates for non-surgical body contouring must have realistic expectations of the potential outcome. Non-surgical body contouring is not meant to be a means of weight loss; instead, it is designed for people already leading a healthy lifestyle who want to sculpt a few problem areas.

The results of non-surgical body contouring are not immediate, and most patients require 2-3 treatments to realize optimal results.
