Different Types of Body Contouring and Their Benefits

Posted By: Lic. Silvia Derasner | January 29th, 2021 | Blog

Everyone wants to love the skin they’re in. While diet and exercise can help you achieve your fat loss and aesthetic goals to a certain degree, sometimes you just need a little extra push to help you reach the finish line. Losing a significant amount of weight by making simple dietary and lifestyle changes is a great achievement in its own right, so you should definitely give yourself a pat on the back for that. But you may notice that despite your best efforts, you still have some stubborn body fat.

benefits of body contouring

Body contouring and cosmetic fat reduction procedures like SculpSure (or WarmSculpting) offer a variety of long-lasting benefits that enhance the results of all of your hard work and help you maintain your fat loss.

What Is Body Contouring?

Body contouring is an effective way to eliminate fat cells and excess fat deposits in certain parts of your body. There are various types of body contouring procedures available, such as using heat, cooling, surgery, or ultrasound technology. Depending on which procedure you choose,

some treatments may be more invasive and/or painful than others.

Here are some popular body contouring procedures available and their unique benefits:


Whether you’ve just had a baby or are looking to shed a few extra pounds of unwanted belly fat, liposuction is a quick, easy, safe, and affordable solution that can help you reach your body aesthetic goals.

Liposuction is one of the most common cosmetic plastic surgery procedures in North America; however, it requires active maintenance on your part to keep the fat off permanently and it tend to be much more invasive that other types of body contouring.

There are four types of liposuction:

  • Laser liposuction
  • Ultrasonic-assisted liposuction
  • Power-assisted liposuction
  • Tumescent liposuction

Body Contouring Surgery

Body contouring surgery consists of one or a combination of cosmetic procedures that are designed to enhance your results by removing excess skin and stubborn fat deposits. Body contouring surgery is rather invasive and requires a much longer recovery time than non-surgical fat loss options.

There are different types of body contouring surgeries to choose from:

  • Panniculectomy
  • Buttock lift
  • Inner thigh lift
  • Breast rejuvenation/augmentation
  • Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck)
  • Brachioplasty (arm lift)
  • Circumferential body lift (belt procedure)


SculpSure is a non-invasive and non-surgical advanced body contouring and sculpting treatment that uses heat to enable consistent fat reduction in certain problem areas of the body. It’s the only FDA-approved procedure of its kind that can successfully treat the following areas:

  • Love handles
  • Abdomen
  • Double chin/submental fat
  • Back

SculpSure is a suitable procedure for people of all ages and body types, but it’s especially effective for those who are having trouble getting rid of stubborn fat deposits despite leading a healthy lifestyle. Before you decide that this is the right procedure for you, you should consult with a skincare expert, so that they can recommend specific treatment options that align with your personal goals.

If you do choose to go with SculpSure, here’s how the procedure works.

1. A series of laser pads are placed on the treatment area of the skin. In addition to the surface layer, these pads also heat up the underlying layers of skin and disrupt the fat cells. A layer of cooling is also provided to keep the skin comfortable. The treatment takes about 25 minutes per surface area.

2. Once the procedure is over, your body will naturally eliminate or release the fat cells through the usual waste channels (e.g., your lymphatic system). Results are gradual and subtle, so you should start to notice differences in your appearance within about six weeks.  

Full results will be noticeable about 12 weeks post-treatment. On average, patients experienced about a 24% fat reduction after one SculpSure treatment. Patients who underwent a second treatment on the same area noticed approximately 40% fat reduction.

What Are the Benefits of Non-Invasive Body Contouring?

Aside from the fact that it’s a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure, there are a lot of worthwhile benefits to undergoing a SculpSure body contouring procedure.

Fast and Long-Lasting Fat Reduction in Problem Areas

Many people struggle with losing fat, especially that stubborn fat around their bellies and love handles. SculpSure is a convenient and affordable procedure that disrupts your fat cells in these problem areas and allows your body to eliminate them through regular waste channels.

No Risk of Permanent Scarring

Since SculpSure is a non-surgical body contouring procedure, there’s no risk of permanent scarring whatsoever. Incisions aren’t required and all of the treatment is topical, so you can rest assured that you’ll be left with perfectly smooth skin.

Applicable to Many Body Parts

SculpSure non-invasive body contouring is a highly versatile cutting-edge procedure that can be performed on a number of problem areas throughout your body that contain stubborn fat cells. These include the stomach/abdomen, arms, thighs, back, double chin, and more.  

Permanent Results

SculpSure can provide permanent fat reduction. The procedure works by destroying fat cells in the targeted areas, and then eliminating the fat cells through the body’s lymphatic system. Once the fat cells have been removed, they are gone for good and will not grow back.
