What are the benefits of Body Sculpting?
Body sculpting technology has made major advances in recent years, making precision sculpting, with previously unattainable results, possible now. It can improve the contours of your body, make your skin look smoother and more youthful, and improve self-confidence. Body sculpting can be especially beneficial for men and women who are struggling with stubborn localized fat deposits that don’t respond to a healthy diet or exercise.
For women, body sculpting can get rid of stubborn stomach fat, while tightening the skin, or fix lax skin after pregnancy. It can also be used to get rid of fat on the hips, buttocks, and the fat that hangs down under the arm area. Body sculpting can address the areas you feel embarrassed about and give you a sleeker, more uniform look with tighter skin.
For men, body sculpting can give definition to your physique by getting rid of love handles, defining the abs and making the chest area more sculpted looking. If you work out, but can’t get that sexy defined look to your body, it may be the answer to getting the awesome buff look that causes others to take a second look.
Body Sculpting Techniques and Procedures
High Def Lipo
High-definition liposuction, or HD, is a more advanced version of the traditional liposuction procedure. Using this technique, Dr.Tantawi can precisely target fat cells in specific areas where there are accumulations, while leaving the surrounding tissue intact. By doing so, he is able to create slimmer and smoother silhouettes with improved contour definition.
The procedure is done with an ultrasonic energy device, which produces sound waves that break up the fatty tissue into smaller fragments. They are then easily aspirated with a thin cannula without damaging skin layer or subcutaneous tissues.
Radiofrequency-Assisted Liposuction (RFAL)
RFAL is a minimally invasive procedure that uses thermal energy to remove fat, promote collagen production, and tighten the skin. Dr. Tantawi will make a small incision to the area to be treated, and insert a radiofrequency transmitting electrode. Using another electrode, radiofrequency waves are guided through the fatty tissue, making sure the area doesn’t get too hot.
The fat is liquified this way and is immediately suctioned from the body with a cannula. Production of collagen is done by the radiofrequency wave stimulation, making the area firmer and more toned.
SmartLipo™, is a laser lipolysis procedure that uses a laser to break up fat cells. It works by heating the fat cells, causing them to break down, and release their contents. This procedure can be used to reduce the size of fatty areas that are bulging, such as the stomach, thighs, and buttocks. The laser in SmartLipo™, also tones the skin and makes it tighter.
It’s best for reducing smaller deposits of fat in certain areas, that are difficult to get rid of with traditional diet and exercise. Laser lipolysis is done as an outpatient treatment, and poses little risk of infection, with scarring being very minimal. The procedure usually takes about an hour.
Dr. Tantawi will inject a local anesthetic into the areas to be treated, so you will not feel any pain. He will then make a tiny incision in the area and insert the laser under the top layer of your skin. The laser will then be moved around the area back and forth to break up the fat cells. You may feel a warming sensation. The fat will then be suctioned or massaged out, depending upon what Dr. Tantawi feels is best. The small incision is cleaned and bandaged. You should be able to resume most of you everyday activities. Dr. Tantawi will advise you on care, and whether you will need follow-up appointments.
Tightsculpting® is a non-invasive dual wavelength laser treatment that reduces fat, and tightens the skin with exceptional results. It’s an effective, and safe procedure that doesn’t require surgery, and doesn’t damage the skin. Tightsculpting® is beneficial after pregnancy, or weight loss. There are many areas you can treat to bring your confidence back, and look slimmer with more toned skin.
Tightsculpting® is done in two steps. Step one consists of deep heating with a wand, over the treatment area. You will feel warmth gradually, with brief hotter sensations, but nothing too uncomfortable. The second step is more superficial heating where the heat may become more intense, but still tolerable, causing little pain or discomfort.
Tightsculpting® causes no downtime, and you will be able to return to your regular activities immediately. There may be a slight pink or red tinge to your skin for a few hours. Depending upon the results you want, you may need more than one treatment. Dr. Tantawi will let you know what your treatment plan will be when you schedule a consultation.
