5 Reasons to Consider Body Sculpting

5 Reasons to Consider Body Sculpting

If you’re almost satisfied with your figure and neckline — but not quite — body sculpting can put the finishing touches on the masterpiece that is you. Recent years have seen a surge in body sculpting’s popularity, as well as an increase in the number of nonsurgical techniques that can permanently remove excess fat cells. 

At Dermatology Institute & Skin Care Center, our trained and expert aesthetic team offers body-sculpting with FDA-cleared CoolSculpting® and Kybella® at our offices in Santa Monica, California. Nonsurgical CoolSculpting uses a patented process called cryolipolysis to destroy unwanted fat. Kybella is an injectable formula designed to eliminate small areas of fat.

Are you still on the fence with body sculpting? Following are five reasons to jump into the future of a brand new you.

1. You want to reward yourself

You made amazing progress in taking charge of your health by switching to a whole-foods diet and exercising regularly. These lifestyle changes allowed you to shed excess pounds without counting calories. You’re now at a healthy body-mass index (BMI) and feel good about yourself and your health.

However, despite your best efforts, you still have a few areas of excess fat that are probably genetically determined and don’t respond to diet and exercise. Reward yourself for your hard work and persistence by permanently eliminating those fatty bulges with CoolSculpting or Kybella. 

2. You’re committed to achieving your goals

When you decided to lose weight or maintain your already-healthy weight, you stuck to your plan. Now you see the benefits in terms of your energy, health, and level of confidence.

However, one of your goals was to lose that double chin or that muffin top. But nothing you’ve done on your own has helped you reach that goal. The good news is, by achieving and maintaining a healthy BMI of between 18.5 and 24.9, you’re now a perfect candidate for using CoolSculpting or Kybella to eliminate your:

CoolSculpting usually takes a series of about three treatments to eliminate excess inches of fat from your body, jawline, or chin. Kybella may need a series of five treatments to completely reduce your double chin and firm your jawline. 

3. You don’t want surgery

If you have large areas of unwanted fat that you want permanently removed and you want it done quickly and dramatically, traditional surgical liposuction may be your best choice. But if you’re not interested in surgery, then CoolSculpting and Kybella are the way to go.

Both CoolSculpting and Kybella work gradually, eliminating about 20-24% of unwanted fat per treatment. These nonsurgical body-contouring techniques work with your body’s natural elimination processes, so you gradually break down the destroyed fat cells and eliminate them through excretion.

Therefore, the process of permanently losing fat with CoolSculpting or Kybella lets you gradually — and more discreetly — change your shape. You won’t look like you’ve had “work done” at all.

4. You don’t want to “recover”

Both CoolSculpting and Kybella are easy to tolerate and have virtually no downtime. You can go back to your normal activities directly after your treatments. 

In fact, minimally invasive body-contouring is considered a “lunchtime treatment.” You can schedule your body contouring in the middle of your busy day then get back in your groove without missing a beat.

Although there are rare exceptions, side effects tend to be mild. With CoolSculpting, you may feel a little swollen, tender, and pink after your session. With Kybella, you may feel sore and swollen under your chin for a day or two.

5. You want a permanent solution

Once you destroy and eliminate fat cells with CoolSculpting or Kybella, they’re gone for good. They don’t grow back, and you don’t produce new ones. However, to maintain your best outcome, continue to maintain a stable weight. Even with fewer fat cells, if you consume too many calories, your remaining fat cells swell to accommodate the extra fat.
