Body Contouring Q & A

What is body contouring?

Body contouring is a noninvasive procedure that targets and kills fat cells. When exploring your treatment options, you should note that body contouring isn’t meant to help you lose weight. Instead, body contouring enables you to sculpt your body into a sleek and toned shape.

At his clinic, Dr. Walker uses SculpSure for body contouring. SculpSure uses a laser to target your fat cells and heat them until they’re irreparably damaged. Over the 12 weeks following your procedure, your body absorbs the fat cells, shrinking those hard-to-lose areas of fat volume. You may need to book multiple sessions to get the results you want.

Can I benefit from body contouring?

Body contouring treatments with SculpSure are for those who are already at or near their ideal weight. Whether you’ve recently lost weight or you’ve developed stubborn pockets of fat because of genetics and aging, you can reach your desired look with a few body contouring sessions.

What areas can I target with body contouring?

You can use body contouring treatments to target any area of your body where fat tends to accumulate and won’t go away otherwise. Commonly targeted areas for SculpSure body contouring include:

  • Double chin
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Abdomen
  • Love handles
  • Back

Body contouring can also reduce the appearance of cellulite in these areas. If there are other parts of your body you’d like to target, Dr. Walker can decide whether SculpSure is your best option.

What can I expect at my body contouring appointment?

Before your body contouring procedure, you need to consult Dr. Walker to find out if you’re a candidate for the treatment. During your consultation, he asks about your medical history and your desired results. Then, he gives you instructions for how to prepare for your procedure.

During your procedure, you may recline comfortably and relax. Dr. Walker wraps the device around you securely before turning it on. As it operates, the device alternates between heating and cooling.

While it doesn’t damage the skin and tissues around your fat or cause pain, you might feel unusual sensations like tingling or pinching. During the half-hour or so that the treatment lasts, you can read or take a refreshing nap.

If you’ve reached your ideal size but your shape needs some finishing touches, call Dr. Walker or book your appointment online to explore your body contouring options.
