body contouring

Body contouring using a minimally invasive weight loss treatment may provide you with the encouragement you need to reach your weight loss goals. If you have been trying to lose weight for some time with less success than you would prefer, additional professional help may be needed.

Our contouring procedures make it possible to change the shape of the body, but they can also make it easier to begin losing weight. This is vital for people who are starting to develop other health issues due to their weight, or for those who are already experiencing associated health conditions.

Health risks associated with being overweight

Being too overweight can lead to these health complications:

  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Stroke
  • Heart disease
  • Cancer
  • Arthritis
  • Sleep apnea
  • Fatty liver disease
  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Kidney disease
  • Pregnancy risks

Weight loss treatment options

The below options can help a person to lose weight, but none of them can guarantee where the weight will be lost. This is why many of our patients use one or several of the options below and combine these treatments with a body contouring procedure that allows them to shape their body into one with beautiful curves.

Prescription medications

Prescription medications may provide some assistance with weight loss depending on a patient’s need for it. There are a variety of prescription medications available to treat obesity, and they each work in different ways depending on the cause of the weight gain. Some of the medications are designed to help the people who take them feel less hungry or full sooner by interfering with the hormonal cues the body follows resulting in feelings of fullness. Other weight loss medications are designed to help prevent the patient’s body from absorbing fat.

Developing healthy habits

Healthy habits are the best route to weight loss. Prescription medications are only meant to assist the patient in dire situations. A doctor will collect all of the medical history necessary to determine whether or not prescription medications are right for a person's weight loss journey.

Weight loss surgery

Weight loss surgery is another option that can contribute to significant weight loss. Like prescription medication, weight loss surgery should only be considered if the patient is deemed to be obese or the patient is overweight with associated health conditions. Gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, and LAP-BAND surgeries all help the patient to feel full sooner, resulting in fewer calories consumed. Some of the operations will prevent some of the food eaten from being absorbed, leading to the passing of the majority of the food rather than the body storing it as fat. Gastric procedures can now be performed as minimally invasive procedures in most cases. A minimally invasive procedure leads to less scarring due to fewer and smaller incisions, less operational bleeding, a faster recovery and a quicker return to daily activities.

Schedule a body contouring procedure

We encourage anyone who has begun to lose weight but is not seeing the results they desire, concerning overall shape, to schedule an appointment for body contouring.
