Body Contouring Q & A

What is body contouring?

Body contouring involves eliminating those stubborn spots that won’t go away with diet and exercise. If you’re close to your ideal body weight, but need a little boost to help you achieve your goals, it’s a perfect way to get rid of excess fatty deposits.

Sessions with Smartlipo Triplex by Cynosure® involve numbing the treatment area with a local anesthetic, then using a small wand instrument to rupture the fat cells. Then the destroyed fat is suctioned away, leaving you more toned and defined.

Is body contouring permanent?

Yes, the laser lipolysis treatment is permanent. Once the treated fat cells are broken down and suctioned away, they’re gone for good.

It’s still possible for you to gain weight in the future though, and that’s why it’s important to go through a body contouring procedure only after you’ve developed healthy eating habits and an exercise regimen that you enjoy. You’re less likely to gain weight again in the future if you have good habits in place.

When will I see results after body contouring?

You’re going to notice a slimmer you before leaving the office after your body contouring procedure; results are immediate. It’s possible to have some initial swelling in the area though, so it could take up to two weeks for your optimal results to surface.

How long is recovery after body contouring?

Traditional liposuction requires you to schedule time away from work and activities for up to two weeks (or more). But because Smartlipo Triplex is minimally invasive, your recovery time is much quicker. Depending on your treatment area, you can usually return to work and most of your activities within a day or two.

Since you might have some initial soreness or bruising, you might need to wait a few extra days to return to exercise or vigorous activities. But Dr. Chatterjee lets you know exactly what to expect during your body contouring consultation.
