Body contouring is a type of procedure that eliminates a percentage of fat cells that are resistant to diet and exercise. South Land Urology uses CoolSculpting™ for body contouring, a procedure that typically reduces around 25% of targeted fat cells per treatment.
There’s an important distinction between body contouring and weight loss. While body contouring eliminates fat cells, it doesn’t cause any significant drop in your weight. In fact, Regina suggests reaching your goal weight or nearing it before you consider body contouring treatments at South Land Urology.
While body contouring doesn’t do much to help you lose weight, it can reshape or tighten targeted parts of your body. It’s especially useful for pockets of fat that remain despite your weight-loss efforts through diet and exercise.
South Land Urology uses CoolSculpting, a body contouring treatment system that stimulates a process called cryolipolysis. During a treatment, the device’s applicators gently suction targeted portions of your fat. The device emits freezing cold temperatures at the same time, which freeze the fat cells without harming your skin.
You might feel some pulling, tugging, or coldness, but the skin often becomes numb partway through the treatment. It takes 35-60 minutes, depending on the number of areas you plan to target.
After a CoolSculpting session, you can go home without downtime. In the months following the procedure, your lymphatic system naturally gets rid of the dead fat cells that the treatment targeted. Regina might suggest scheduling multiple CoolSculpting sessions depending on the sizes of your targeted areas.
CoolSculpting is versatile enough to treat nearly any unwanted bulge on your body. Regina can treat these FDA-approved areas where you might have some stubborn body fat:
For many individuals, reducing fat in areas where they thought they’d never lose from results in a significant confidence boost. Around 1-3 months after treatment, you might find that your clothes fit better or that you have a more proportionate body shape.
Body contouring offers an extra boost after your natural fat loss progress hits a wall. Schedule your body contouring consultation by calling South Land Urology or by booking online today.
