What is body contouring?

Body contouring, or body sculpting, is a medical or surgical procedure that aims to reshape an area of the body. It may involve procedures to:

  • Get rid of extra skin.
  • Eliminate excess fat.
  • Reshape or contour the area.

Body contouring does not usually help you lose weight. Instead, it helps shape the body and address specific areas where weight loss isn’t effective or after significant weight loss results in extra skin.

Nonsurgical body contouring is called lipolysis. Radiofrequency lipolysis uses ultrasound waves and heat to target fat cells.

Why is body sculpting used?

People choose to have body sculpting to look and feel thinner or to attain a certain shape. It’s often used on specific areas of the body when diet and exercise aren’t making a difference.

Body contouring can target most areas of the body. Common sites include:

  • Arms.
  • Back.
  • Belly and flanks (love handles).
  • Buttocks.
  • Neck and chin.
  • Thighs.

What happens before body contouring?

If you decide to move forward, you’ll have to sign a consent form. By signing it, you give permission to the healthcare provider to perform the procedure. You also agree that you understand the risks of the procedure and have realistic expectations.

What happens after non-surgical lipolysis?

For nonsurgical body sculpting, you will leave the office or clinic immediately after the procedure. You usually won’t need a ride home, and you can go about your day normally.

One session takes about 30 minutes and most people need several treatment sessions to see results.

What are the advantages of body sculpting?

Many people who have body contouring report:

  • More defined, well-shaped body parts.
  • Younger, thinner appearance.
  • Smoother skin.
  • Symptomatic improvement.

What are the risks or complications?

With nonsurgical options, risks are much more limited and include:

  • Hives or rash.
  • Pain or soreness.
  • Red skin.
  • Swelling.
  • Unsatisfactory results and need for repeat sessions.

A note from Cleveland Clinic Body contouring can help eliminate fat and shape areas of the body when diet and exercise aren’t working. Being at your ideal weight improves quality of the results with lower complications. Lipolysis is a nonsurgical procedure, and liposuction is a surgical way to remove fat. Other body sculpting procedures, such as skin excision, can tighten and smooth any loose or wrinkled skin. Talk to your healthcare provider about your options and their risks.
