Even with a balanced diet and regular exercise, many of us struggle with stubborn areas of fat that seem immune to our efforts. Body sculpting, or body contouring, are advanced aesthetic procedures designed to reshape and enhance the physical appearance without invasive surgery and can help you overcome these challenges and feel confident in your skin.

What is
body sculpting?

Body sculpting targets specific areas of the body for fat reduction, skin tightening and muscle enhancement.

The techniques used to sculpture the body are highly effective in reducing fat pockets and tightening the skin in areas that are resistant to diet and exercise.
Do understand that body sculpting is not a weight loss solution. Instead, it is designed for fat reduction and body contouring. These procedures are best suited for individuals who are close to their ideal weight but want to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat that do not respond to diet and exercise. The treatment should be seen as a complement to a healthy lifestyle, not a substitute for significant weight loss.

Common treatment areas

A body sculpting treatment can be applied to a variety of body areas – the most common are:

• Abdomen: To reduce belly fat and enhance the waistline
• Thighs: Targeting both the inner and outer thighs for a more toned look
• Arms: Eliminating excess fat to showcase firmer, more defined arms
• Back: Addressing bulges around the bra area and lower back
• Chin and neck: Improving the profile by reducing double chin and tightening the neck
• Buttocks: Lifting and contouring to create an aesthetically pleasing shape

An effective treatment
A treatment takes about 30 minutes – after one treatment you can expect to see some visual results. Many patients see noticeable improvements within weeks, with optimal results becoming apparent after several months as the body naturally processes and expels the treated fat cells. How many sessions are needed is highly individual.

Different technologies
and how they work

There are several different methods used in body contouring treatments, each suited to different needs and outcomes. These treatments are performed in a controlled environment, ensuring precision and comfort.

Fat freezing

Crylipolysis is a non-invasive treatment that eliminates stubborn fat by freezing fat cells without damaging the surrounding tissue. During the procedure, a device is applied to the target area, which cools the fat cells to a temperature that causes them to crystallise and die. Over the following weeks, these cells are naturally processed and eliminated by the body, resulting in a sleeker, more contoured appearance.

Treatment areas:
• The abdomen
• Flanks
• Under the chin

Common procedures:
• CoolSculpting
• CoolTech
• Clatuu

Fat melting
(ultrasound cavitation)

Ultrasound cavitation uses low-frequency sound waves to break down fat cells. The sound waves create a pressure change, causing fat cells to dissolve into a liquid form that is then expelled naturally through the body's lymphatic system. Fat melting is ideal for reducing fat in larger areas and enhances body contours with minimal discomfort and downtime.

Treatment areas:
• Thighs
• Abdomen

Common procedures:
• Sofwave
• Ultrashape
• Cavi-Lipo
• LopSonix

Skin tightening

Radiofrequency skin tightening utilises energy waves to heat the deep layer of your skin. The heat stimulates the production of collagen, a protein that helps to firm and improve skin elasticity. This method reduces the appearance of loose skin and enhances the skin’s overall texture and tone.

Treatment areas:
• Face
• Neck
• Abdomen
• Arms

Common procedures:
• NuEra
• Morpheu8
• Thermage
• Exilis
• Venus Freeze/Venus Legacy
