Can Body Contouring Techniques Help?

Body contouring can help to eliminate the final inches that regular exercise and diet may not be able to get rid of. Certain areas of the body do not respond well as well to exercise. Body contouring procedures work by targeting these hard to reach areas and eliminating the fat that is frequently deposited there. The amount of fat in each area will be different from person to person, but body contouring techniques can effectively remove the deposits, allowing the person to drop inches and have a more contoured appearance.

What is the Recovery Time for Cosmetic Body Contouring Techniques?

Most body contouring techniques are non-invasive. Ultrashape uses ultrasound energy to disrupt the fat cells causing them to die away. Once the fat cells die, the body's immune system comes along and breaks them down so they can be eliminated from the body. Most of these procedures require very little recovery time with patients being able to resume their daily activities within a few hours of the procedure. While there may be some slight discomfort in the treatment area for the first day or two after the procedure, the patient will not have any other issues that would prevent them from working or participating in social events.
