You’ve dieted, you’ve exercised, and you’ve finally dropped those excess pounds that were dragging you down. But, despite all that effort, you’ve still got stubborn areas of fat that just won’t budge, keeping you from getting the slim, sleek, toned contours you want. Discouraging, yes — but definitely not hopeless.
At CornerStone MD in Dallas, we offer state-of-the-art body-contouring treatments designed to eliminate stubborn fat, banish jiggly cellulite, and help you get the trim, toned figure you’re looking for. Body contouring is completely customizable to help you reach your unique goals, and it can help you feel more self-confident. But, even though it can produce great results, body contouring isn’t ideal for everyone. Here’s how to tell if it might be a good solution for you.
What is body contouring?
Body contouring is a nonsurgical treatment aimed at eliminating unwanted fat cells in targeted areas of the body, like your waist, buttocks, or thighs. At CornerStone MD, we use the truSculpt ID® body-contouring system to help patients get slimmer, firmer, sleeker bodies. Designed specifically for the stubborn areas around your tummy and flanks, truSculpt treats both areas with a session that takes only about a half hour, ord only 15 minutes if you’re focusing on just the tummy or the flanks.
The truSculpt ID system uses focused radiofrequency energy to painlessly destroy fat cells. During your treatment session, Dr. Riley moves the special handpiece over your skin, while the radiofrequency waves penetrate to the deeper layers where fat cells are located. The gentle heat warms the fat cells, dissolving their outer layers and liquefying them. Over the next few days and weeks, your body removes the fatty debris, leaving slimmer contours behind.
Because it uses gentle heat, the truSculpt ID system is also good for toning loose, sagging skin that’s often left behind after weight loss or as a “side effect” of aging. With truSculpt, you get two benefits: removal of stubborn fat and skin that’s firmer, smoother, and sexier.
Who is a good candidate for body contouring?
Because it’s nonsurgical, body contouring can be a great option for most women and men. The best candidates are those who:
- Are at or near their ideal weight. Body contouring is not a weight-loss treatment. Although it does destroy fat cells, body contouring is meant to fine-tune your body’s shape and contours, not destroy large amounts of fat. The ideal body-contouring patient is within 10 to 20 pounds of their ideal body weight. If you need help losing weight, Dr. Riley can develop a medical weight-loss plan optimized for your lifestyle and goals.
- Have realistic expectations. As with any cosmetic enhancement, it’s important to be realistic about your goals and to understand what body contouring can and cannot do. Dr. Riley will review your goals carefully with you prior to your treatment, so you can feel confident you’ll get the results you’re looking for.
- Want to tighten sagging skin. Remember, truSculpt tones flabby skin in addition to getting rid of fatty deposits, and it can also help smooth unsightly cellulite.
Body contouring can be a great way to celebrate a major weight loss, and it’s also ideal for anyone looking to tone their body and take their physique to the next level. After your treatment, you’ll want to maintain your gorgeous results with a healthy diet and exercise. Not only will it help you continue to look great, but it’s also good for your overall health.
What if I want to define my muscles?
Some patients are successful in getting rid of most of their unwanted fat, but they still lack the muscle definition they want. Even with dozens of planks, crunches, and lunges, it’s not always possible to sculpt your muscles so you get the chiseled results you’re looking for. If muscle definition is what you’re after, we can help with that goal, too.
In addition to truSculpt ID, Dr. Riley also offers truSculpt Flex®, a patented system designed to tone specific muscle groups while you lie back and relax. The truSculpt Flex system uses multidirectional stimulation technology to simulate the muscle activity of crunches, squats, and waist-whittling twists, zeroing in on problem areas to give you greater definition. Eight areas can be treated in a single treatment session, which lasts about 45 minutes.
