Body sculpting is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures around. Many people have excess fat bulges that they want to get rid of, but don’t have the time to spare to get in enough exercise to make a dent in it. Plus, some people have genetically inherited fat bulges that won’t budge no matter how healthy the diet or intense the exercise regime. For women, these areas of stubborn fat tend to be on the abdomen and thighs, while for men, it’s usually the love handles. Minimally invasive body sculpting can help these men and women reduce their excess fat and finally achieve a body they are happy with.

Minimally Invasive Body Sculpting

The most popular type of minimally invasive body sculpting is tumescent liposculpture. This procedure involves extracting fat from the body through a tiny cannula. The recovery time is fairly short, usually lasting just a few weeks, and the results can be dramatic. For those people who do not have a few weeks to spare for recovery time, there are other non-invasive methods of fat reduction as well, that do not require any recovery time at all. These procedures also produce visible, significant results, although not always as dramatic as with liposuction.

There are many types of body contouring procedures available, and the board-certified dermatologists at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego offer almost all of them. Before deciding on a procedure, a thorough consultation will be held in which your goals and issues are discussed. Following this consultation, a customized treatment plan will be decided upon by you and your dermatologist. Each individual is different, and there is a body contouring procedure for all types. There is no need to give up on ever getting rid of your fat bulges with so many procedures available!
