Thanks to celebrities like the Kardashian’s being all over the internet on a daily basis, their bodies have become a sort of goal for women everywhere and the easiest way for women to achieve this goal is to book themselves in for a cosmetic surgery.

When most people think of the word cosmetic surgery, the first thing on their mind is usually something like liposuction or a facelift, but what about body contouring? Body contouring is a non-surgical treatment that has been around for years now and has seen its market grow exponentially over the last 4 or 5 years and is highly sought after as a way to enhance your natural curves whilst giving your body a lovely toned look. So before booking in, what do you need to know about a non-surgical body contouring treatment?

What exactly is a body contouring treatment?

Body contouring is a non-surgical treatment that utilises high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) energy to safely help you to get a more shapely and toned body. To do this, the HIFU energy is used to target the layers of fat below the skin and break them down, whilst also tightening the skin at the same time to create a slimmer, lifted and contoured look that matches your exact desires.

Why are more and more women opting for a body contouring treatment?

These body contouring or body sculpting treatments are so appealing because they don’t require surgery to be performed and can be used for skin tightening, cellulite reduction and the breaking down of fat with no downtime, no infection risks and no scarring due to its non-invasive nature.

What is the main influence in the rise of these treatments?

Body contouring has become hugely popular thanks to celebrities such as the Kardashian’s and reality TV shows such as Love Island. Many women are watching these stars and shows and deciding that larger buttocks, fat reduction and contouring around their stomach, arms and legs is what they want, knowing that it can know be changed without some form of serious and expensive surgery.

What areas can be treated in a body contouring treatment?

The most common areas requested to be looked at during body contouring treatments are what you would pretty much expect them to be;

  • Stomach
  • Arms
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Calves

Pretty much anywhere that can cause a woman to feel a lack of confidence in any way when they go out and want to wear a dress. Following a treatment, the results are immediately visible with visible reductions measured in centimetres, however to create the best results, body contouring treatments are designed to be done as more of a series of treatments to fully sculpt and create your dream body.

Realistically, your perfect body is now just a phonecall away and as long as you’re 100% certain that you want to go through with the change, there is nothing to stop you nowadays such as the risk and cost involved previously with “under the knife” treatments. Now, all it takes is a bit of time under a fancy device and you can watch your body change instantly.
