Bella Medical Aesthetics Answers Your Body Contouring FAQs

Excess fat is often the cause of decreased confidence and self-esteem. Sometimes, even those who keep to a regular exercise regimen and a healthy diet still have pesky fat deposits that just won’t go away. Bella Medical Aesthetics’ body contouring procedure presents a solution. Don’t resign yourself to low confidence in your appearance. You can get the body shape you’ve always wanted with the skillful body contouring treatments at our Columbia, MD office. We know that the body contouring procedure can raise many questions, so we’ve compiled the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions.

What is Body Contouring and What Problems Can It Address?

The body contouring procedures we perform at Bella Medical Aesthetics involve directly removing fat cells from your body. In this way, we can eliminate stubborn fat deposits in several areas of the body. Through various procedures, body contouring can address fat in the abdomen, thighs, back, chest, chin, or love handles. This removal of fat cells is often helpful for people who have lost significant amounts of weight and were left with sagging skin.

What Body Contouring Treatments are Available?

Numerous body contouring treatments are currently available. Our medical professionals are trained in a slew of fat removal procedures that will have you looking and feeling your best. Among the treatments that fall into the body contouring category include arm lifts, breast lifts, facelifts, lower body lifts, medial thigh lifts, and tummy tucks.

What Is the Body Contouring Procedure Like?

The body contouring procedure will vary based on from what part of the body you’d like the excess fat removed. At Bella Medical Aesthetics, we use SculpSure for our body contouring services. This procedure begins with laser energy projected onto unwanted fat cells. The energy heats and damaged the fat cells, causing them to be eliminated. Patients will need to allow six to twelve weeks for best results.

Are There Risks Associated with Body Contouring?

Every surgical procedure comes with risks, and body contouring is no exception. Scarring will result from many body contouring procedures and is permanent in most cases. Some patients have reported bleeding, infection, skin loss, blood clots, or numbness after the procedure. It’s crucial to let your medical professional know about any preexisting conditions. They can determine if you’re at increased risk for any of the side effects of body contouring. Our staff at Bella Medical Aesthetic is happy to discuss any concerns you may have.

Will I Need Multiple Treatments?

After your initial body contouring procedure, you won’t need additional treatments to begin seeing results. You’ll need to stick to a healthy diet and exercise schedule to maintain your new body shape. However, you’ll be able to maintain your results on your own, and you won’t need any more medical procedures to continue enjoying your self-esteem boost.

When Will I See Results and How Long Do They Last?

Most patients see results of the body contouring procedure after six to twelve weeks. These results can potentially last a long time. For best results, patients only need to maintain a healthy eating and exercise regimen and keep up with general fitness. Though most patients notice the effects of body contouring for years, it’s completely natural to lose body firmness with age. The results of body contouring are evident to most patients, but it’s important to remember that individual results may vary. Success may look different on different patients, and some may see change faster or slower than others.

Is Body Contouring Expensive?

Because of the nature of the procedure, the cost of body contouring may be different from patient to patient. It depends on which operation you choose, the surgeon performing the operation, and the geographic location of the office. At our Columbia, MD location, our staff is always happy to discuss the expenses of your specific procedure with you.

Am I A Good Candidate for Body Contouring?

At Bella Medical Aesthetics, it’s our mission to restore our patients’ confidence in their body. However, we never compromise the safety of our patients to do so. Before scheduling a body contouring procedure, we want to make sure you’re a good candidate. Good candidates for body contouring are nonsmokers and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
