Body Contouring

Introduction to Body Contouring...

Body contouring is a general term that refers to any procedure that alters different areas of the body. In the past, plastic surgery has been the only answer to these issues. Now, we are able to use non-invasive technology to achieve a reduction in size of certain body areas, increased tone in lax or redundant skin and a diminished appearance of cellulite.

The following are the individual components of body contouring:


  • 1. Arm lift or brachioplasty - The extra flesh on the arms of bariatric patients virtually always appears on the underside of the upper arm and is sometimes referred to as "bat wings". Surgeons make incisions made from the armpit to the elbow to remove the skin and create a more pleasing contour.

  • 2. Breast lift or mastopexy - By trimming excess tissue from the upper breast, the surgeon can move breasts which usually droop to the umbillicus to a more upright and full position. The procedure also often requires an implant to make up for lost fat and tissue inside the breast. Scars on women are almost always hidden inside the area covered by the bra.

  • 3. Stomach lift or abdominoplasty - Excess skin hanging down over the pubic region is often the distorting feature that most concerns and bothers patients. The stomach pannus retains moisture, and causes rashes due to skin rubbing against itself which usually leads to poor hygiene. While the surgical procedure to remove it is known as a panniculectomy, there is often more work to be done for patients who suffer from large amounts of hanging skin. To provide improved contours on the waist, back and flanks, surgeons sometimes perform a belt lipectomy (also known as a torsoplasty or a circumferential lipectomy).

  • 4. Lower body lift trims excess skin on the buttocks and thighs.

Today, Thanks to the introduction of non-invasive, pain free body sculpting technologies, many people can now reach their desired look after a short period of time. Nonsurgical body contouring is a rapidly growing field. Common methods used include low-level laser therapy (LLLT), cryolipolysis, radiofrequency energy, suction massage, and high-frequency focused ultrasound.

Available Systems


UltraShape®

Syneron-Candela

The UltraShape works by emitting acoustic waves of ultrasonic energy that converge into a confined focal volume targeting only subcutaneous fat at a controlled depth. Unlike traditional ultrasound technology, UltraShape energy transmits pulsed ultrasound, allowing control over temperature elevation (less than 0.5° C increase) and enabling fat destruction to occur instantly, selectively and mechanically (non-thermal).

PrecisionTxTM

Cynosure

PrecisionTx is an Nd:YAG 1440 nm wavelength laser. The 1440 nm wavelength is highly absorbed by water and creates a photomechanical effect which causes micro bubbles at the fiber tip (cavitation effect). This results in bidirectional energy distribution and more focused targeting of tissue. PrecisionTx treatments are minimally invasive and can be done in-office. These one-time, one-hour procedures make PrecisionTx ideal for patients who are seeking the best possible results with the least amount of downtime.

OmnimaxTM

SharpLight

This procedure uses Radio Frequency waves (RF) to produce heat under the skin; this heat effectively targets and breaks down fat cells. The fat is absorbed by the lymphatic system and flushed out. As a side effect of the treatment, the process rejuvenates the surrounding skin and renews collagen fibers, resulting in elastic, youthful and shining skin.
