The Art of Body Sculpting | What Is Body Sculpting?
At our center we are always in search of the best cosmetic treatments to offer our patients. Our commitment is to achieve the best results possible using the latest trends in science, but always having patient safety and comfort as our priority. In our effort to do so, we are now offering Body Sculpting, a refined method of liposuction that allows us to shape and create new form where it didn’t exist before. We're pioneering in an area of stem-cell therapy where fat is used as a medium to sculpt and volumize certain areas of our bodies.
What is Body Sculpting?
Body Sculpting is the art of removing unwanted deposits of fat that are usually resistant to exercise or that bulge out in specific areas. Thanks to Body Sculpting, we can now offer easier, more discrete suctioning and fat removal that help patients experience faster recovery, faster healing and better results. Body Sculpting is a safe and effective method that works. Compared to traditional liposuction, there is minimum discomfort, less downtime and bruising and patients can return to their daily activities sooner.
The procedure is done under local anesthesia and it usually takes about 3 hours. Patients can return home the same day of their procedure. Fat is gently removed from the desired areas to unveil a smoother contour while shaping your body. This fat can be re-injected to enhance other areas like the face, hands, breast and buttocks. With our breakthrough technique in stem cell processing, we can convert stem cell poor fat in stem cell rich fat.
Naturally enhanced form that is long and lasting.
Body Sculpting can get rid of unwanted fat deposits in the neck, abdomen, arms, thighs, back and knees. The main goal is to improve the size and shape of a specific body area. More than one area can be done at the same time, this will be dictated by Dr. Lantz and Dr. Noto, who will perform a complete medical and physical evaluation to determine your health status.
To achieve an aesthetically pleasant result, we hide the incisions in natural folds or stretch marks. Through small incisions, a special solution called tumescent fluid is infused in the fatty layer to achieve anesthesia of the tissues and prevent blood loss. Then with fine instruments attached to a syringe, fat removal is performed. During the procedure, the patient is comfortable and able to move without assistance. After the procedure is finished, the incisions are closed and a surgical garment or binder is recommended to provide support and drainage. It is usually worn for about 3 weeks.
Patients usually recover in about 2 to 3 days. The first 24 hours there is some drainage that is expected but that goes away when the incisions close. Massages are recommended to activate the lymphatic system and to reduce swelling and bruising. Some results may be visible almost a week after the procedure, but the final shape will be evident after a couple of months when the swelling has subsided. We encourage our patients to modify their eating habits to healthier choices and to incorporate exercise in their daily regimen. This will not only keep you in shape, but it will keep you healthier too.
Even though liposuction is not a weight loss method, some patients may benefit from removing a couple pounds of fat from their belly just for health reasons. When inches are lost from the abdominal area, studies show that there is a decrease in blood sugar levels and also a decreased risk of cardiovascular disease. Body Sculpting can help you start the process by eliminating pounds of belly fat in one session. Combined with IV Vitamin therapy and a healthy diet, you will be on your way to improving your health and feeling better from the inside out.
