Body Contouring Q & A

What is body contouring?

Body contouring refers to methods of reducing fatty tissue in targeted areas of your body, as well as tightening the skin for a slimmer or more toned appearance. Liposuction and tummy tuck surgery achieve goals like these, but nonsurgical body contouring can help you avoid scarring, lengthy recovery time, and potential complications associated with surgery.

At Chrysolite Aesthetics, Dr. Abu-Zeitoon offers two nonsurgical body contouring treatments to target stubborn fat. While these treatments won’t miraculously make you shed pounds, they can fine-tune your silhouette once you’re at or nearing your goal weight. 

What are my body contouring treatment options?

Chrysolite Aesthetics offers two vastly different procedures to eliminate fat cells and contour various areas of your body. Each treatment starts with an in-depth consultation at which Dr. Abu-Zeitoon reviews your medical history and makes sure the procedures are safe for you. Once she’s familiar with your health and goals for treatment, she might recommend:

CoolSculpting®

CoolSculpting is a revolutionary body contouring treatment that uses controlled cold temperatures to freeze your fat cells. Once the fat cells in your targeted treatment area freeze, they can no longer effectively hold fat. 

For one to two months after your treatment, the dead fat cells exit your body via your lymphatic system for a 20-25% reduction in volume. 

VelaShape®

VelaShape is a body contouring procedure that combines suction with radiofrequency and infrared light. This trifecta causes deep tissue heating to stimulate the growth of collagen and elastin. 

The results include significant skin tightening, cellulite reduction, and a slight slimming of your figure.

Which areas can body contouring adjust?

Dr. Abu-Zeitoon helps you plan your body contouring treatment to target one or more areas or bulges of body fat. Using CoolSculpting, VelaShape, or both, you can eliminate fat volume in the following regions:

  • Chin and jaw area
  • Upper arms
  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Back 
  • Under your buttocks
  • Inner or outer thighs

For either treatment, you may need a series of procedures spread out over the course of weeks or months. Dr. Abu-Zeitoon discusses your chosen procedures with you in detail so you know exactly what to expect and how to care for yourself throughout the process. 

Body contouring can give you the boost you need to have more confidence about your body. To book a consultation, call Chrysolite Aesthetics or schedule online today.
