Non-Surgical Body Contouring for Men
Diet, age, genetics, and lifestyle are just a few factors contributing to men’s overall health and weight. Sometimes diet and exercise aren’t quite enough to keep your body slim and muscles defined, and over time men can see stubborn fat hanging on despite their best efforts in the gym. Men tend to carry their extra weight in the abdomen, back (including the “love handles”), chest, and occasionally the upper arms or legs. Due to advances in laser technology, there are now non-invasive options available for reducing the appearance of stubborn fat, requiring less downtime and leaving your skin free of stitches or scars. There are a few different types of body contouring, but the experienced professionals at Criswell & Criswell Plastic Surgery can guide you through the various options.
Types of Non-Invasive Contouring for Men in Charlotte, NC
There are many different non-surgical options available based on the needs of each patient. The two most common, FDA-approved options are:
- Laser Therapy. This form of body sculpting uses a low-level laser device that produces cold laser energy. When the laser energy interacts with the fat cells in the desired treatment area, the cells break down and are absorbed into the body over the next few weeks following the procedure. Many patients see results after one treatment, but more treatments may be recommended depending on your desired end result.
Both methods of body contouring are non-invasive and patients typically resume normal activities the same day as treatment. You don’t have to deal with bandages, stitches, scars, or time off work to achieve the muscle definition, and trimmer, slimmer figure you’ve been struggling to achieve. The side effects are also minimal, with most patients reporting only some discomfort or a slight burning sensation during treatment. Serious side effects are extremely rare, but be sure to disclose all medical conditions, prescription medications, or other recent cosmetic procedures to your physician.
