Body Contouring Q & A

What is Body Contouring?

Noninvasive body contouring refers to various treatments that reduce fat without cutting the skin. They are often an alternative to liposuction for patients who are unable or unwilling to undergo a surgical procedure. While noninvasive body contouring results are less dramatic than liposuction results, contouring treatments can be a good fit for people who are close to their ideal weight but have stubborn trouble spots that won’t go away despite diet and exercise.

Body contouring treatments use a variety of technologies to destroy or shrink the excess fat cells below the surface of your skin. Depending on the treatment, energy sources such as ultrasound, radiofrequency, and infrared light deliver the temperatures needed to destroy the unwanted cells.

How Does truSculpt 3D Work?

TruSculpt 3D is an innovative, noninvasive body contouring treatment that uses radiofrequency to target fat cells at the perfect temperature: hot enough so that it destroys fat cells, but cool enough so that patients remain comfortable throughout the procedure.

Typically, the truSculpt procedure lasts about an hour, and Dr. Bingham can treat multiple parts of your body during the same session.

Some patients see results sooner than others, but in general, you’ll see best results after about two months. Many patients see some fat reduction after a week or two.

Is Body Contouring and truSculpt Right For Me?

Body contouring might be a good fit for you if you’re relatively healthy but can’t get rid of those stubborn trouble spots such as:

  • Love handles
  • Belly fat
  • Excess back fat

Because truSculpt doesn’t use suction, there doesn't need to be a significant amount of fat present. As with other fat reduction treatments, the results of truSculpt won’t last if you don’t maintain a healthy lifestyle afterward. So keep in mind that you’ll need to continue to eat well and exercise regularly.

Body contouring is a personal choice: Dr. Bingham can help you determine whether you’re a good fit and help you weigh the pros and cons. Call the office or book a consultation online today to learn more about truSculpt and body contouring.
