Benefits of Body Sculpting

Body contouring procedures offer a way to create a leaner, sculpted body. Other benefits include:

  • A more defined figure
  • Tighter skin
  • Long-lasting results
  • Increase in self-confidence

Who is a Good Candidate for Body Sculpting?

Body sculpting procedures are ideal for those who maintain a healthy lifestyle in terms of diet and exercise but still have areas of the body that resist their efforts. Additionally, those having lost a significant amount of weight but have excess skin that camouflages their efforts are good candidates for body sculpting. It is important for people considering body contouring to have a realistic attitude about the outcome.

There is typically some swelling and bruising with body sculpting that fades over a few weeks following surgery. Although you may see some results following your procedure, the full appearance becomes more visible over the following few weeks.
