Diet and exercise are the two most natural body sculpting options available. However, when it comes to ridding oneself of stubborn body fat, these two methods may not always be enough. If you’ve been struggling to shed excess fat and still not seeing the results you want, it may be time to consider a body contouring and liposuction treatment. Body contouring is a procedure that uses liposuction technology to remove excess fat from specific areas of your body. By eliminating this fat, Dr. Giuffrida at Turner Medical Arts can slim down and contour your body to ensure you look the way you desire.
Combining Body Contouring and Liposuction
The reason fat tends to accumulate and linger in specific areas of our bodies is due to certain hormone imbalances that impact HSL activity. These imbalances can increase fat production and storage. In addition, stubborn fat areas such as the stomach, love handles, arms, and thighs tend to have a tight concentration of fat and thus release it more slowly. Dr. Giuffrida offers both traditional liposuction techniques for body sculpting and uses our special VASER lipo technology to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat without major surgery.
VASER Liposuction Procedure
The VASER lipo procedure works via the use of ultrasound waves to break up fat deposits under the skin. Dr. Giuffrida begins the procedure by first injecting a saline solution into the treatment area before applying a probe to the skin’s surface. As the fat breaks down, Dr. Giuffrida suctions it out through a slender tube. This technique only addresses the unwanted areas of fat that you are trying to eliminate, leaving the other surrounding tissue unaffected. The VASER lipo technology can also enhance the appearance of the muscles beneath your fat, giving you a more sculpted, contoured look. Many men enjoy the chiseled results of this specialized procedure. VASER lipo is a minimally invasive treatment that requires only a local anesthetic. You can expect to go back to work and your usual routine the day after treatment.
Body Contouring and Liposuction Results
After your fat is removed via the VASER procedure, you will notice a decrease in the concentration of fat in your treated area. Once your body heals, the full benefits of this body contouring and liposuction combination will be fully recognizable. In addition to the removal of fat, we also offer transfer services in the form of a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure. This fat transfer procedure uses your unwanted fat to enhance the size and shape of your backside. This added step can provide enhanced body contouring in the form of added volume, lift, and shape improvement.
