Non-Surgical Procedures

Typically, when you are not able to achieve your body contouring results naturally, surgery is the next logical option. After all, your body has natural limits, and surgery is often seen as the only way to achieve the results you’re after, whether that’s slimming down or curving out. However, surgery is not everyone’s cup of tea. In fact, many people—for various reasons—look to actively avoid surgery. Thankfully, there are non surgical options for achieving body contouring results. These results may not be as bold as surgical results, but a nonsurgical approach offers many distinct advantages—especially a lack of prolonged and painful recovery.

These non surgical approaches offer a variety of ways to achieve your results. Some of these procedures have a distinct recovery period, while others will allow you to return to work immediately. Much will depend on what your desired outcome and results. Much will also depend on your timeline and your recovery window. These are all issues you will want to discuss with your cosmetic or plastic surgeon. However, these procedures are all valuable in that they provide excellent alternatives to surgical procedures, so even those who are dubious of surgery can still enjoy feeling slimmer, trimmer, and more fit.

Non Surgical Body Contouring Options

Patients who want more control over the contours of their bodies but who are not interested in surgery have the following options:

  • Injectables and Fillers: When it comes to body contouring, it’s important we don’t forget the face. There are a wide variety of injectables and dermal fillers that can make the face look fuller and more youthful. This includes products such as Botox and Juvederm.
  • Coolsculpting: A non-surgical liposuction alternative, Coolsculpting is a device that freezes fat away. The cold from the device also helps mitigate any pain that might come from the procedure. Coolsculpting results take a few weeks to show, but when they do you’ll notice less fat and a tighter structure to your skin in the treated area.
  • Laser Treatments: There are other ways of achieving your body sculpting results, and one of those ways is through a set of procedures known as laser treatments. These procedures do everything from clear up skin to act as a kind of liposuction alternative.
  • Lip Injections: Contouring your lips is certainly one procedure that cannot be ignored. Sometimes, the lips definitely help make the face! Lip injections are a non surgical way to get plumper, rounder-looking lips that also tend to appear more youthful.
  • Cellulite Removal: Cellulite can make your skin look dimpled, wrinkled, and aged. For some patients, that means a significant amount of discomfort. Cellulite removal procedures can help those patients get great results and feel good in their own skin.

Quick Procedures and Quick Results

Generally, non surgical procedures are able to performed relatively quickly—ranging anywhere from a couple of hours to a couple of minutes. This means you will be able to enjoy your results much more quickly than you would with surgical procedures. If you are interested in cosmetic surgery procedures, you can contact your local cosmetic surgeon to schedule a consultation and get started on your transformation.
