Body Sculpting Q & A

What is body sculpting?

When you’re trying to lose weight and tone your body, several aesthetic services can help you accomplish your goals. Body sculpting involves the use of laser technology to achieve results that are similar to those obtained with liposuction.

With “laser lipo,” Dr. Salmassi can contour areas of the body that aren’t responsive to diet or exercise, like excess fat around the abdominal region or cellulite on the thighs.

Unlike traditional liposuction, the body sculpting laser liposuction helps to liquefy fat, which Dr. Salmassi then suctions out of your body.


Am I a candidate for body sculpting?

Regardless of your body type, many patients are good candidates for body sculpting. You generally must be in good health to have a lipo laser procedure, and it's essential to understand that body sculpting services are not a replacement for weight loss. They can enhance your results and show off your new body after you’ve lost weight.


Are there side effects of body sculpting?

Laser lipo and other body sculpting procedures are much less invasive than traditional liposuction. However, some people experience minimal side effects, like swelling, bruising, or tenderness in the treated area.

You might need to avoid strenuous activities for a few days, minimize your exposure to sunlight, or manage discomfort with over-the-counter pain relievers.

Most people, however, are back to their normal activities quickly. Dr. Salmassi may recommend more than one procedure, depending on the number of treatment areas.


How can I improve my body sculpting results?

Patients get the best results with body sculpting procedures when they combine them with a medical weight loss package, which includes customized nutrition advice, exercise recommendations, vitamins, B12 injections, and more.

In some cases, Dr. Salmassi might recommend achieving your goal weight or coming close to it, before receiving a body sculpting procedure. Doing so ensures that changes in your weight don’t affect your body sculpting results.

To maintain your perfect shape, eat a balanced diet and keep up a regular exercise routine. Take care of your skin and stay hydrated, too.
