Losing weight and maintaining a healthy lifestyle can be a very difficult thing. Despite the hours in the gym and a major overhaul on the way you eat, you’re not seeing the results in the mirror. Sometimes our bodies have pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. If you find yourself in this situation, then you might be a great candidate for body sculpting on Long Island.
What is Body Sculpting?
Body Sculpting is a cosmetic procedure, which removes unwanted deposits of fat that are usually difficult to get rid of with traditional diet and exercise. These fatty deposits are usually found in areas such as the waist, neck, hips, thighs, knees, arms and male breasts (gynecomastia). The main goal is to improve the size and shape of a specific body area.
SculpSure is a breakthrough in light-based body contouring designed to reduce stubborn fat in problem areas such as the abdomen and love handles, helping you achieve a slimmer and natural looking appearance without surgery or downtime.
Even with diet and exercise, most people have stubborn pockets of fat that seem impossible to lose. SculpSure’s body contouring technology is able to target and destroy these fat cells in just 25 minutes without affecting the skin’s surface. Over time, these damaged fat cells are naturally absorbed and removed from the body, with results seen as quickly as six weeks, and optimal results typically seen at 12 weeks. There is no recovery time following treatment, so you can resume your daily activities immediately.
HIFU – Non-Invasive Fat Removal
HIFU stands for “High Intensity Focused Ultrasound” and HIFU-Shape therapy is the latest in body sculpting therapy. It uses an ultrasound transducer to deliver ultrasound energy to targeting areas on your body that you want to see flattened.
The ultrasound energy breaks down fat cells underneath the skin and they are processed using the body’s natural metabolic processes. Best of all, because ultrasound is used the upper skin layers of the targeted areas are largely unaffected.
Smart Lipo on Long Island vs Traditional Liposuction
Smart Lipo is a minimally invasive surgery meant for small pockets of fat. Traditional Liposuction is a more intensive surgery that removes large amounts of fat. Body Sculpting patients are usually people who have already tried traditional weight loss methods and are looking to reshape and tone their body.
Compared to traditional liposuction, body sculpting is easier and more discrete. There is minimum discomfort, less downtime and bruising and patients can return to their daily activities sooner. Rather than in a hospital, our body sculpting treatment is done in our Southampton, Long Island office under local anesthesia with oral sedation. Recovery from the procedure takes about 2 to 3 days.
