Who wouldn’t want easy ways and quick fixes to eliminate body fat or tighten up skin. Everyone is on the look out for proven and long lasting results to shape up with the least negative side effects, and the latest fad of body contouring trends to fit the bill! But the thing is this, this procedure has got a lot to do with syringes and blades and stitches and not a brush and some bronzer. Sigh! Read on to find out more.
What is Body Contouring?
Body Contouring is a surgical procedure that changes the shape of a body part through removal of fat or skin. Yup, you read it right. It involves resizing and reshaping certain areas of the body so that the person’s overall appearance is more balanced and in proportion. It can also include toning areas and improving the appearance of skin.
What is the Procedure?
Liposuction is the most widely used technique to body contour, and involves reducing the number of fat cells in the area of choice by permanently removing them. Body contouring includes Arm Lift, Thigh Lift, Tummy Tucks and Mini Tummy Tucks. All these are surgical approaches to removing excess fat, and is used particularly when skin has lost elasticity due to ageing or dramatic weight loss. Here are the body contouring procedures being used all over the world:
- Cryolipolysis or controlled cooling uses freezing temperatures to target and destroy fat cells.
- Laser lipolysis uses controlled heating and laser energy to target fat cells.
- Radio frequency lipolysis uses controlled heating and ultrasound technology to target fat cells.
- Injection lipolysis uses injectable deoxycholic acid to target fat cells.
Are there Any Risks and Side Effects:
Typically, only mild, short-term side effects are examined. These usually include skin redness, swelling, and pain in the specific body part.
How Much does it Cost?
In Pakistan, non-surgical fat reduction costs around Rs 267,447 and injection lipolysis costs around Rs 199,988.
You wish it could be as easy as makeup contouring, like picking a brush, dab it on the contour powder, apply it to your body and baamm!? Well we hear you girl. Lets figure out a way to cheat the Body Contouring trend. All you have to do for the body contouring effect is pick up a brush and use some bronzer to darken out the areas that are bulging. Same concept as applied when you contour your face.
