What Are Body Contouring Treatments?

In many cases, after weight loss surgery or post-pregnancy changes, we are often left with loose, saggy skin that can be troublesome to lose. Body contouring treatments have proven to be a lasting solution to this problem: they get rid of the excess skin and transform your body into a new, younger-looking figure. Here, we will look at the various benefits of body contouring treatments, what they are, and why you should have yours done by a McDonough body contouring expert.

Non Surgical Body Contouring

Non Surgical body contouring, also known as nonsurgical fat reduction, is a treatment procedure that involves removing or reducing the resistant layers of fat to shape and contour different body areas.  There are numerous nonsurgical body contouring procedures, all of which are based on these four main principles:

  • Injection Lipolysis – Utilizes injectable deoxycholic acid to eliminate all fat cells.
  • Laser Lipolysis – Uses laser energy and control healing to get rid of fat cells.
  • Controlled Cooling/Cryolipolysis – Uses extreme cold temperatures to identify and eliminate all fat cells.
  • Radiofrequency Lipolysis – Uses ultrasound technology and controlled heating to destroy fat cells.

Cryolipolysis Sculpting

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction procedure that originates from the science of cryolipolysis. It is also an FDA-approved procedure involving freezing temperatures to identify and eliminate fat cells in designated areas of the body. Essentially, the cold temperatures function by destroying all fat cells, which are later discharged out of the body through the lymphatic system. Some of the targeted areas in the body include:

  • Double chin
  • Arms
  • Underneath the buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Back and bra fat
  • Double chin

Normally, one treatment session lasts for about 30-60 minutes, but numerous sessions will be required to ensure satisfactory outcomes.


V-Form ReFit, a non-invasive skin tightening technology with multi-polar radiofrequency and pulsed magnetic fields, helps eliminate loose skin by activating your body’s natural ability to heal. It also influences a thermal reaction in the skin tissue. This thermal reaction helps in reducing cellulite, soften wrinkles, and contracting your skin for a younger appearance.

Viora V-FORM, as a radiofrequency body contouring procedure, used vacuum suction and multi-RF channels to stimulate elastin and collagen production. Contouring helps your skin contract effectively. The treatment also minimizes cellulite and fat volume for much tighter skin. However, multiple sessions of about 20 to 30 minutes will be required.

Surgical vs. Non-Surgical Body Contouring

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, surgical body contouring procedures (e.g., liposuction) carry risks such as deep vein thrombosis, organ damage, excessive fluid accumulation, infections, and pulmonary and cardiac problems. In contrast, minimally to noninvasive body contouring procedures involve few risks. They are also less expensive than surgical liposuction, which costs an average of $3,200 in 2016.
