What Is Body Contouring?

Whether from the natural effects of age or the changes brought on by a life event (such as pregnancy or major weight loss), many men and women struggle with aesthetic aspects of their bodies that cause them to feel embarrassed and self-conscious. And what’s even more frustrating is that you can exercise, lift weights, diet, and maintain a good skincare routine, but sometimes these natural methods are just not enough to give you the toned and attractive body contours that you desire. But what if I told you there was a simple solution to getting the appearance you desire? Well, with plastic surgery and cosmetic body contouring procedures, that is exactly what you can achieve!


Any type of treatment or surgery that alters and enhances the shape and appearance of your body is considered “body contouring.” So, whether you choose to go the non-surgical route of CoolSculpting® Elite or you decide to fully commit to your aesthetic enhancement by having cosmetic surgery, with procedures like liposuction, you can change the shape of your body effectively and dynamically create a more appealing body contour that will only improve your comfort and confidence.


What Are My Body Contouring Options at Sanctuary Medical Aesthetic Center?

Let’s face it, cosmetic surgery can be daunting. There’s the anesthesia to worry about, along with incisions, downtime, recovery, and the side effects that all come along with surgery. That’s why at Sanctuary Medical Aesthetic Center, we offer five of the most transformative non-surgical techniques to help rejuvenate your appearance and give you the body contour of your dreams.

CoolSculpting® Elite

One of the most revolutionary and trusted non-surgical body contouring procedures is CoolSculpting® Elite. In fact, this procedure is the only FDA-cleared treatment that eliminates subcutaneous fat from various different parts of your body. Whether it be on your face (under the chin or along the jawline), or on your abdomen, back, thighs, buttocks, or arms, you can rest easy knowing that your body will be transformed!


During your CoolSculpting® Elite treatment, pockets of stubborn fat in your body are literally frozen, which kills the fat cells. These dead cells are then naturally flushed from the body. And one of the best parts of this treatment is that the fat is removed permanently.


EMSCULPT NEO® is the first FDA-approved non-surgical treatment to elimninate fat and build and tone muscle all at the same time! This procedure uses radio frequency energy to heat up and essentially melt subcutaneous fat while using high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology (HIFEM®) to create up to 20,000 muscle contractions in one session. That is the equivalent of 20,000 crunches, leg lifts, or curls all at once. After your EMSCULPT NEO® treatment, you will have reduced fat with gained muscle. 


UltraShape® is a body-contouring treatment that utilizes ultrasonic energy to permanently remove fat from the belly. Over the next two to four weeks after your treatment, the targeted fat will literally dissolve to give you a sleeker and more contoured midsection.


For women who struggle with fat and cellulite in their abdomen, thighs, and upper arms, VelaShape® is the answer! This non-invasive treatment helps to rid your body of pockets of fat and smooths your skin of unsightly ripples. You can expect to achieve clearer skin and a firmer and trimmer appearance.

Accent Prime™

Accent Prime™ allows men and women the chance to get rid of excess fatty tissue and tighten the skin on the thighs and knees. This procedure combines the transformative power of ultrasound and radio wave technologies to promote the production of collagen in the skin. After your Accent Prime™ treatment, you will be able to feel confident and comfortable wearing those shorts, bathing suits, and dresses that you never felt you could wear before.

Why Should I Trust Sanctuary Medical Aesthetic Center With My Body Contouring?

It is vital that you trust your cosmetic provider to put your safety and quality results above all else. Additionally, you want to make sure that your cosmetic provider has the experience and knowledge to understand your aesthetic goals and help you achieve them. The plastic surgeons, dermatologists, medical aestheticians, and anti-aging experts at Sanctuary Medical Aesthetic Center provide just that! They have decades of collective experience and look forward to helping you look and feel your absolute best.


Does Body Contouring Work?

Simply put: Yes! Body contouring absolutely works! Whether you are undergoing your body contouring procedure because of age or a life event, you can trust that your skin and body aesthetic will achieve a more rejuvenated refreshed appearance after your body-contouring treatment. And one of the best parts of these procedures is that they can be combined together or with other treatments and procedures to give you an even more complete and balanced rejuvenation. 


Of course choosing the right physician and service is one of the first steps in having a successful body-contouring journey. Doing your own research and scheduling a consultation with Sanctuary Medical Aesthetic Center will get both you and your provider on the same page about your goals and desires. You will then be able to select the body-sculpting treatment that will give you the highest chance of success, and you will be able to discuss your frustrations and goals with your cosmetic care provider to see if combining procedures might be effective for you. 


One of the most important things to realize as you decide which treatments you may want to explore is that it is never too soon or too late to acheive the look and feel you desire.

How Long Does Body Contouring Last?

Body contouring procedures are geared to produce long-lasting results, but it is important to realize that these are not one-and-done procedures. You can’t expect to have a body contouring treatment and then not worry about maintaining your results. In fact, it is largely the opposite that is true. Once you have undergone a body-contouring procedure, you have to put the work in. Maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle will help to keep you looking fit and in shape with your new contour. Eating right, drinking plenty of water, and regularly exercising are all simple and effective ways to maining your stunning results. 


It is vital to understand that the natural aging process will still happen, which means that normal aging effects will occur over time. But by undergoing a body-contouring procedure and maintaining your results, you will be able to put off those frustrating aging effects while you enjoy looking and feeling great!
