As the weather starts to warm up, most of us start to think about coming out of winter hibernation and kicking our bikini body workouts into high gear. Planning out how to get your body summer-ready now can have big benefits by the time everyone’s favorite season rolls around. But if you’re finding that healthy smoothies and a great workout routine aren’t quite cutting it, check out these top reasons why noninvasive body contouring might be for you.
Nonsurgical Body Contouring Takes Less Time Than Surgery
Surgical body contouring options like a tummy tuck, liposuction or mommy makeover can be very effective at helping you achieve a slimmer physique, but they also require a fair amount of time. From the prep stages to the actual procedure to recovery time, you’ll need to invest more time in a surgical procedure than a nonsurgical treatment like UltraShape® Power or VelaShape™.
UltraShape can typically treat your entire abdominal area in as little as 30 minutes, and VelaShape can be done in a single 60-minute session.
There’s No Extensive Downtime
Although your results will gradually develop over the next 3 months or so either both UltraShape and VelaShape, you won’t have to worry about extensive downtime like after a surgical procedure. So if you schedule your noninvasive body contouring treatment in spring, you could see your full results just in time for swimsuit weather without having to miss out on any fun in the sun while waiting on your recovery.
Nonsurgical Options Typically Cost Less
If the cost of plastic surgery is a concern for you, nonsurgical body contouring could be a realistic solution, since anesthesia and surgery aren’t needed. Bear in mind, though, that you don’t want to “shop around” for the cheapest price, whether you’re looking for a surgical or noninvasive body contouring treatment near you.
Instead, choose a reputable plastic surgeon’s office with trained and experienced professionals who can offer you a safe, relaxing experience and high-quality results. Even nonsurgical treatments can lead to serious complications in the hands of an inexperienced or unqualified provider.
You Can See Long-Lasting Results
Just like with a tummy tuck or liposuction, noninvasive body contouring can give you long-lasting results that you can enjoy for years to come. UltraShape gets rid of unwanted pockets of fat like love handles and banana rolls using cutting-edge ultrasound technology to destroy targeted fat cells. VelaShape emits a combination of infrared, vacuum and radiofrequency waves to achieve the same effect.
Depending on your specific goals and personal preferences, you could see the best results after a series of nonsurgical body contouring treatments spaced a few weeks apart. This is something that you should discuss with your plastic surgeon during your body contouring consultation before starting your first treatment.
After any type of body contouring procedure, the key to keeping the same great results is making healthy lifestyle choices like eating right and exercising.
Noninvasive Body Contouring Can Complement Other Treatments
If you’re thinking about going with a surgical treatment such as liposuction or a mommy makeover, you could always talk to your plastic surgeon about also including a nonsurgical option. For example, many women choose to add VelaShape to their mommy makeover to help them achieve a more youthful figure. Men and women have also seen great results when scheduling an UltraShape treatment after they’ve recovered from liposuction for an even more comprehensive outcome.
