Body Contouring Q & A

What is body contouring?

Body contouring is a non-invasive way to eliminate fat deposits. The fatty deposits, which are located far beneath the skin's surface, are accessed by a targeted laser. The laser sends controlled heat into the middle of the fat cells, which forces them to rupture and die.

The fat cells in the treatment area are permanently destroyed during body contouring treatment. If you're frustrated by unwanted fatty deposits, body contouring may be a good solution.

How does body contouring treatment work?

During your body contouring treatment at Women’s Health Group, you'll lay down in a comfortable position on the exam table. Your Women’s Health Group treatment provider will place a group of four treatment devices on the skin, directly above the fat deposits.

The treatment devices remain in place for the entire treatment (usually around half an hour). Most patients don't experience any significant discomfort during treatment, although you might feel warmth in the treatment area. Non-invasive body contouring at Women’s Health Group never requires incisions or sutures.

How many treatments are needed?

It varies by patient. Many patients achieve the desired fat reduction after only one treatment session. Once the results from your body contouring treatment take effect, you may choose to have an additional treatment session to achieve an even more contoured body.

When will you see results?

Typically, patients notice some fat reduction at around six weeks post-treatment. The fat will continue to flush out of the body through the body's lymphatic system over coming weeks until the final results manifest at about 12 weeks post-treatment.

Who is eligible for body contouring treatment?

Dr. Michael Awad at Women’s Health Group offers this advanced fat removal technology to patients who want to eliminate extra fat without needing to go through surgery. However, body contouring isn't right for everyone. It's best suited for:

  • Patients who have been at a healthy weight for at least the last year
  • Patients who have attempted and failed to eliminate the excess fat through diet and exercise
  • Patients who are fully committed to maintaining their results through weight management
