Body Contouring Treatment Areas
One of the most common areas patients request body contouring for is the abdomen and stomach. There are a variety of great options for contouring this area. On the non-surgical side, both CoolSculpting and EMSCULPT are often combined in order to both decrease the appearance of body fat and tone the abdominal muscle group. Another option is BodyTite & Morpheus8. BodyTite is an in-office radiofrequency assisted liposuction that is done under general anesthesia, and Morpheus8 can help tighten skin. For more dramatic results, abdominoplasty surgery or liposuction are often done to remove excess fat and skin.
Non-Surgical Body Contouring Treatments
Many patients who are interested in body contouring ask about non-surgical solutions. there are in fact a variety of great treatment options that don’t require the downtime or recovery of a surgical procedure. Some treatments you might want to consider include:
CoolSculpting: CoolSculpting is one of the most popular non-surgical treatments. It is a truly non-invasive procedure that doesn’t require surgery, needles, or downtime. Cape & Islands Plastic Surgery is one of the only practices that offers Dual CoolSculpting where patients can treat multiple areas at once.
EMSCULPT: EMSCULPT is a unique body contouring treatment. Unlike other body contouring treatments that aim to decrease body fat or tighten skin, EMSCULPT aims to build muscle. Utilizing HIFEM (high intensity focused electromagnetic) technology, muscles contract thousands of times in a short session, leading to their growth.
BodyTite: BodyTite is an RFAL (radiofrequency-assisted liposuction) treatment. Unlike surgical liposuction which happens in a hospital setting, BodyTite can be done in our office under general anesthesia. It is a minimally invasive treatment that leaves virtually no scar and delivers results similar to traditional liposuction.
What Clients Have Said About Cape & Islands Plastic Surgery
Surgical Body Contouring Procedures: Abdominoplasty vs Liposuction
Two surgical options for body contouring are liposuction and abdominoplasty. There are some important differences between these treatments. First and foremost, liposuction can be done to many different areas of the body including the abdomen, flanks, and arms. And abdominoplasty is a surgical treatment that removes excess skin and creates a more toned/firm abdomen. By comparison, liposuction is a fat removal treatment. These treatments can also be combined together depending on a patient’s body goals. For example many patients that are interested in fully body treatments like a mommy makeover receive abdominoplasty with liposuction.
