Body contouring is popular — and for good reason. Many people can use body contouring to achieve the appearance they want, but the treatment isn’t a good fit for everyone.
At Bergen Aesthetics, our aesthetic specialist, Dr. Heripsime Ohanian, uses advanced body-contouring technologies, including Smartlipo Triplex™ by Cynosure®, to slim down and improve the contours of specific areas of your body.
Before Dr. Ohanian recommends body contouring as a treatment option, she performs a comprehensive evaluation of the treatment area, takes a medical history, and assesses your overall health. She also spends time reviewing your goals to ensure body contouring is the right option for you.
What body contouring is all about
Body contouring is a minimally invasive way to address excess deposits of fat, so you can look and feel your best. These fat deposits can remain long after you lose weight because of your genetics, your age, or your gender.
Women and men can also experience changes in the way their bodies store fat, especially as they get older. Women tend to retain more fat deposits around their hips and thighs, while men find it harder to lose fat around their waist and abdomen.
This stubborn fat is difficult to lose no matter how much you exercise or how good your diet is. When you’re ready to explore other options for tacking unwanted fat deposits, it’s time to consider the benefits of body contouring.
Are you a body-contouring candidate?
Candidates for body contouring should be in good physical health overall and close to an ideal body weight before we will consider you for treatment. Dr. Ohanian also makes sure you have realistic expectations for your results before recommending a body-contouring method.
At Bergen Aesthetics, we offer a wide range of body-contouring technologies and procedures to help you achieve the body of your dreams including:
Dr. Ohanian also offers breast lifts, fat transfers, and Avelar abdominoplasty procedures to address aesthetic issues that affect your self-esteem and confidence.
Determining which body-contouring treatment is right for you
Some of the body-contouring treatments we offer, including SmartLipo, require only small incisions to access the fat beneath the surface of your skin. Dr. Ohanian then uses laser or radiofrequency energy to destroy targe, and you can go home the same day.
For abdominoplasty, Dr. Ohanian uses minimally invasive surgical techniques to remove excess fat without damaging surrounding tissue. In fat transfers, she also uses specialized surgical techniques to remove fat from one area of your body and place it in another to improve your natural contours and address areas of sagging skin, wrinkles, and fine lines.
Surgical procedures may require more downtime than same-day laser procedures. They may also increase your risk for scarring and complications related to surgery.
The right body-contouring procedure for you will depend on your goals and your ability to tolerate laser treatments or surgery. Dr. Ohanian may also recommend more than one procedure to achieve optimal results.
