Summer will be here soon, and you may be thinking about whether you are ready for the beach or pool. While diet and exercise are the most important ways to achieve your desired silhouette, some men and women may feel like a cosmetic procedure will help them get the exact results they want.
If you are interested in cosmetic treatments but do not wish to undergo an invasive procedure, there are non-surgical options that can still give you beautiful results.
CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive treatment that can help you get rid of stubborn fat using controlled cooling technology. The machine freezes fat cells without damaging healthy skin. The procedure is FDA cleared to permanently reduce fat in nine different areas of the body, including the abdomen, thighs, upper arms, and under the chin.
Some people are more concerned about a lack of muscle tone in areas like the buttocks and abdomen. EMSCULPT® uses high-frequency electromagnetic energy to induce muscle contractions that are more powerful than a person can achieve by doing traditional exercises. This treatment provides stronger, more toned muscles and does not require any downtime.
truSculpt® iD uses radiofrequency energy to heat fat deposits underneath the skin. This thermal reaction destroys a percentage of the fat cells. The treatment can be performed on the thighs, abdomen, and upper arms and can be completed in as little as 15 minutes. There is no downtime required, so you can return to your regular activities immediately after your procedure.
Evolve by InMode
Evolve by InMode is a revolutionary new body sculpting system that can provide accurate, consistent body contouring results with the use of hands-free applicators. The TRIM and TITE applicators use radiofrequency energy to help reduce fat and tighten skin, respectively. The TONE applicator uses electromagnetic energy to help tone muscles.
These four treatments can also be combined to provide exceptional body contouring results.
More Extensive Correction
If you think that non-surgical correction may not be enough to get you where you want to be, there are surgical options that can enhance several areas of your body.
Liposuction is the traditional fat removal procedure and can be performed on almost any area of the body. A thin suctioning tube is used to break up and permanently remove fat deposits. At our Green Bay surgical facility, we offer several liposuction techniques that are more advanced, such as ReNUplasty®, VASERlipo®, BodyTite™, FaceTite™, and AccuTite™, so that your treatment is customized to your needs.
If a patient has excess fat in one area of the body and lacks volume in another, fat transfer may be a good option. Fat cells are removed from a region of the body like the abdomen or thighs using liposuction. The fat is then purified and injected into the part of the body that requires an increase in volume, such as the buttocks, breasts, or face.
Patients who have excess fat that they want to get rid of but who also have poor skin elasticity may be good candidates for ReNUplasty®, a technique developed by Dr. Hotchandani. The procedure combines VASERlipo® and Renuvion™ to remove fat and tighten the skin in the same operation. VASERlipo® is ultrasound-assisted liposuction, which helps reduce trauma to the tissues surrounding the treatment site. Renuvion™ uses cold helium plasma and radiofrequency energy to heat tissues and tighten skin.
If you have a large amount of excess skin after pregnancy or significant weight loss, tummy tuck surgery can help restore the appearance of your abdomen. This procedure is performed to remove excess skin and fat and repair separated abdominal muscles. A tummy tuck does require an extended recovery period. However, the surgery provides dramatic results that are permanent so long as the patient maintains a healthy lifestyle.
