I’ve Lost the Weight, Now How Can I Sculpt My Body?

Losing weight is something to be proud of. Whether you’ve lost the weight through diet and exercise or through a procedure, you’ve dedicated yourself to improving your appearance. However, despite what many people think, your journey is not over just yet. With weight loss (especially extreme weight loss), you can be left with loose and sagging skin and pockets of stubborn fat that you may not have gotten rid of completely. And while this can be frustrating, the good news is that there are cosmetic treatments available to help you look the way you’ve always wanted. Below, you will find some information about how to trim, tone, and tighten your body after you lose the weight. 

Trim Your Body

CoolSculpting® remains a viable option. This procedure uses cryolipolysis to target specific pockets of fat and freeze them away. After your CoolSculpting® treatment, you can feel confident that the remaining fat is gone for good. CoolSculpting® targets nine different areas of the body, including under the chin and jawline areas, thighs, abdomen, flanks, bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks, and the upper arms. Conversely, truSculpt® iD can help you get rid of remaining fat cells in various areas of your body, like the upper arms, abdomen, flanks, calves, and inner and outer thighs. This procedure uses monopolar radiofrquency (RF) with skin tightening technology to target, heat, and eliminate subcutaneous fat from your body. 

With both CoolSculpting® and truSculpt® iD, the destroyed fat cells will be naturally eliminated from your body over the next several weeks. Both of these treatments are pain-free and require little to no downtime so that you can get out there and start enjoying your new, trim body. 

Tone Your Body

Many men and women who lose significant amounts of weight desire a more toned and firm body appearance. While you can pump iron at the gym, an alternative toning option is EMSCULPT NEO®. This FDA-cleared treatment helps to strengthen and tone your abdomen, calves, arms, and buttocks. This treatment uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM®) technology to create high levels of muscle contractions in the targeted area. In one 30-minute session, you can receive up to 20,000 muscle contractions. That is the same as doing thousands and thousands of curls and sit-ups. Essentially, you are getting the workout of a lifetime while you sit back and relax. With a combination of radiofrequency, EMSCULPT NEO® gives you significant reduction of fat without sagging skin and skin tightening. After your EMSCULPT NEO® treatment, you can enjoy a more toned and muscular appearance.

If you are looking for the complete package, which offers you trimming, toning, and tightening, then Evolve by InMode may be the solution you are looking for. This full treatment uses RF energy to heat and destroy subcutaneous fat while tightening the skin by stimulating the body’s natural production of collagen and toning muscle fibers in the same way you would with reps at the gym. Evolve can be used throughout the body. 

After experiencing significant weight loss, one of the only options to address skin laxity and other contouring issues is to remove the excess skin and fat. At his private surgical facility, located in his Green Bay office, Dr. Hotchandani strives to provide pleasing results to all of his patients.
