Fat modeling, or reshaping fat deposits into a more pleasing contour, has become very popular in recent years with the rise of less-invasive liposuction as well as completely non-invasive fat reduction treatments. Many men and women in San Diego live relatively healthy lifestyles and exercise as much as they can, but in today’s busy world, there may not be a lot of time to spare to exercise every day, and so despite being in decent shape, these people still have unwanted fat bulges, most often around the abdomen and thighs. If you have fat bulges that you just can’t seem to get rid of, don’t worry: there are plenty of options available that will allow you to reduce the size of your waist or thighs and contour your body into a more pleasing shape.
Tumescent liposculpture is a popular means of reducing fat deposits. Tumescent liposculpture involves less anesthesia and less recovery time than traditional liposculpture, with the same dramatic results. With tumescent liposculpture, expert dermatologists such as those at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego will use a tiny cannula to remove unwanted fat from the body. Following a tumescent liposculpture procedure, a patient will need to allow for a few weeks of recovery time, and will see full results after a month or so, depending on the individual.

Minimally invasive body sculpting procedures, such as CoolSculpting and Vanquish, are also available for men and women who can’t spare a few weeks for recovery time. These procedures involve no recovery time at all, and produce significant results, although these results are generally not as dramatic as with liposculpture. However, the short procedure time (usually an hour or less) combined with the lack of downtime are big points in favor of these procedures for many busy men and women.
