Body contouring is designed to sculpt, tighten and firm your physique. Whether you want to tighten loose skin after weight loss or pregnancy or slim down in trouble areas and eliminate stubborn fat, body contouring can help you achieve your aesthetic goals. No matter how healthy your diet or how hard you work out, sometimes there simply seems to be no way to budge stubborn fat. Body contouring helps you sculpt the figure you’ve always wanted without surgery.

What is body contouring?


Body contouring, also called body sculpting, can shape the body, greatly reduce fat in various target areas, and tighten the skin by utilizing a number of different techniques and technologies, from cold, heat, and lasers, to other methods. Body contouring in Austin helps you to target the areas of your body that can often be troublesome when you’re trying to achieve a fit, shapely physique. While body sculpting isn’t solely about losing weight, it does often leave the body slimmer.

What areas can be treated?  

Body contouring can be applied to almost any area of the body. Common treatment areas include the following:

  • Knees
  • Neck
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs (inner and outer)
  • Hips
  • Buttocks 
  • Arms (including biceps and triceps)
  • Back fat
  • Calves
  • Knees 

Benefits of body contouring 

Body contouring provides benefits for a wide range of people.

For those who have lost a significant amount of weight, body contouring in Austin can help remove the loose, draping skin that is often left behind. In this case, body contouring completes the weight loss journey, allows for easier exercise and mobility, and better hygiene. 

For those who are looking to tighten and firm their physique, and have found that there are stubborn pockets of fat that just won’t budge, body contouring also provides many benefits. 

Benefits of body contouring include the following:

  • A more defined physique
  • A rejuvenated physique and appearance
  • Reduced stretch marks
  • Minimized wrinkles and cellulite
  • Eliminated fat
  • A reshaped, firmer figure
  • Difficult physical areas toned and trimmed

What should I expect during a body contouring treatment?


Your first step will be a thoughtful consultation with Dr. Basa or Dr. Abando. Your doctor will examine you, discuss your aesthetic concerns and ideal results for your physique. From there, your doctor will recommend the best body contouring treatment to help you achieve your results, that are best suited to your body type. 

Types of body contouring

Body contouring can be accomplished using many different procedures. At B+A Medical Aesthetics, we customize your procedure for you, and we offer the following non-surgical treatments.

BodyFX


BodyFX body contouring is a customized system that blends RF energy, deep tissue heating, and suction to melt away and eliminate fat. The RF energy emitted by the device delivers heat and contracts the tissues. The suction aspect of the BodyFX device works together with the pulses to reshape your body. BodyFX is not painful and produces remarkable changes in your figure, and it also smooths cellulite and tightens the skin.

BodyFX requires no anesthesia, no incisions, or other invasive measures, and there is no downtime or recovery period. We recommend a series of 6-10 BodyFX sessions. Results from BodyFX show a 39.6 percent reduction in fat over three months.

EmSculpt


Emsculpt is the first and only FDA-approved, non-invasive device that simultaneously burns fat and builds muscle. Emsculpt is a device that is placed on the skin in the targeted treatment area, where it delivers radiofrequency heating and high-intensity, focused electromagnetic waves. This melts the fat cells and intensely contracts the muscles in the area, resulting in a leaner, more toned physique.

Emsculpt is painless, completely non-invasive, and requires no downtime or recovery period. We recommend that patients get 2-3 treatments a week for a period of 2-4 weeks. Results begin to appear in two weeks, and provide an average 30% reduction in fat, and an average 25% growth in muscle volume.

Evolve 


Evolve is a cutting-edge body contouring device that uses radiofrequency energy to heat fat cells, and then applies a precise, high-voltage energy pulse to destroy these targeted fat cells. Evolve reduces fat, but it also tightens and renews the skin by boosting the production of collagen. 
 
Evolve is non-invasive and takes only 30 minutes an hour to complete, depending on the size of the treatment area. There is no downtime or recovery period, and the treatments are painless. Evolve sessions are performed once a week for six sessions (more may be done to achieve more significant results). Results begin to appear over the next weeks after your treatment, and continue over several months.

Recovery from Body Contouring


Side effects of our body contouring treatments may include swelling, redness, and tenderness, and usually fade within a few hours. You can return to your normal activities immediately after your treatments.
