Save Your Summer With Body Contouring in Chevy Chase
Want to achieve your dream body but unsure if you want to undergo surgery? Body contouring can be done in a variety of ways at Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery.
SculpSure and liposuction are both great routes to reduce stubborn fat in unwanted areas. Liposuction is a surgical procedure to remove unwanted fat from the body with suction. SculpSure provides slimming results without surgery or recovery time.
What is SculpSure Body Contouring?
Our body contouring treatment SculpSure heats fat cells in desired areas to a certain temperature, making them no longer viable. The SculpSure technology is considered laser lipolysis, meaning laser energy is delivered through an applicator targeting localized fat. As a result, the body will clear out the damaged body fat that was targeted and will not regenerate. The procedure takes 25 minutes, can be done repeatedly, and is a faster approach to fat removal.
Why try Body Contouring in Chevy Chase?
SculpSure is a body contouring treatment that uses laser energy to target and destroy fat cells in certain areas of the body. It is non-invasive, which means it does not require surgery. While it can help to reduce fat in those areas, it is not a full substitute for liposuction.
However, it is an excellent choice for those who cannot or do not wish to have surgery. Some advantages of body contouring include:
- Time: The procedure itself takes just 25 minutes. The process is straightforward and speedy, allowing you to complete it at virtually any time.
- Recovery: With busy schedules, surgery recovery can take a toll on your schedule. With body contouring, there is no recovery necessary, so you can go on with your day post-treatment.
- Effective: For being such a fast and non-invasive procedure, body contouring can remove localized stubborn fat effectively. Results are visible in 6 weeks and take full effect at 3 months.
What is Liposuction Body Contouring?
Liposuction in Chevy Chase, MD, can produce similar results to our SculpSure treatment. However, the results from the liposuction procedure are more significant and more visible. In a liposuction procedure, fat is removed through suction, utilizing a thin metal tube, or cannula.
Those who want this more dramatic change must be willing to undergo this surgery and should expect a longer recovery time. The procedure is typically 1-4 hours, requires no overnight hospital stay, and typically has 3-5 days of recovery time.
The results of liposuction body contouring can last a long time, depending on your lifestyle and diet. After the procedure, patients may experience some swelling, bruising, and soreness, but these side effects should resolve within a few weeks. Patients should avoid strenuous physical activity for a few weeks, as this can lead to complications. Overall, liposuction body contouring is a safe, effective, and long-lasting method for removing stubborn localized fat.
