Body Fat Contouring

NOVA ConciergeMed

Body fat contouring involves medical or surgical procedures to reshape specific body areas by reducing extra fat or skin. These procedures can be non-surgical, like cryo lipolysis, injection lipolysis, laser lipolysis, or radiofrequency lipolysis, which uses cold, heat, lasers, or ultrasound to remove fat cells. On the other hand, surgical methods, such as lifts, tucks, or liposuction, remove excess fat and skin from areas like the belly, arms, thighs, buttocks, neck, or chin. It's important to note that body fat contouring is not a way to lose weight. Instead, it's a way to enhance the appearance and shape of certain body areas that don't respond well to diet and exercise.

Why Opt for Body Fat Contouring?

There are two main methods: non-surgical lipolysis and Surgical liposuction. People from all around the world often go for body contouring when they want to shed some pounds.
