Despite good health and a reasonable level of fitness, our bodies and sometimes even our faces can have disproportionate contours or stubborn localized fat deposits. Many options exist to treat these conditions with varying levels of effectiveness and cost.
Despite good health and a reasonable level of fitness, our bodies and sometimes even our faces can have disproportionate contours or stubborn localized fat deposits. Many body contouring options exist to treat these conditions with varying levels of effectiveness and cost.

Surgical or non-surgical body contouring and body sculpting are not treatments for obesity. They are not a replacement for regular exercise, proper nutrition, and overall good eating habits. Individuals with stubborn areas of fat and who exercise regularly are the best candidates for these procedures. Some patients have experienced success-using body sculpting procedures as a reward for successfully sticking to a nutrition and exercise plan.

Ultrasonic Fat Reduction, Using Radio Frequency, & Infrared Energy
Cellulite and dimpling caused by fat that pulls on the skin can be effectively treated using bi-polar radio frequency, infrared light energy, and massage. The procedures use radio frequency (RF) waves that pass through the top layers of the skin, into the subcutaneous fatty layer, and finally into sub-dermal collagen layer. These waves combined with infrared light energy tighten the skin and reduce cellulite.
The treatments use precise heating, suction, and specifically designed rollers to smooth out the skin to facilitate safe and efficient heat energy delivery. The procedures increase the metabolism of stored fat, and promotes lymphatic drainage. Additionally the procedures reduce the size of fat cells and fat chambers. The results are gradual smoothing of skin’s surface with a noticeable reduction in cellulite, circumferential reduction, and reshaping of the treated area.
Ultrasonic RF Therapy (link to new Ultrasonic page) can permanently destroy and eliminate fat cells without the need for a surgical fat removal procedure like liposuction. It has minimal side effects and can take off several inches of unwanted fat for exceptional body shaping results.
Another procedure we offer is called Veleshape. VelaShape uses a combination of Bi-polar Radiofrequency (RF), Infrared Light Energy, plus Vacuum and Mechanical Massage to deploy targeted heat to adipose tissue. The combination of these energies increases the metabolism of stored energy, increases lymphatic drainage and reduces or shrinks the size of the actual fat cells and fat chambers. The net result is gradual smoothening of skin’s surface with a noticeable reduction in cellulite. Velashape treatment was featured on the Doctors. See the video below.
Mesotherapy is a minimally invasive body sculpting injection to help eliminate localized pockets of body fat. The injection is composed of enzymes and proteins that are injected and absorbed into the fat. The treatment causes the membrane to open and release stored fat. The released fatty substance is then picked up and removed naturally by the body’s lymphatic system. Since it takes time for the injected solution to go into effect, the results can take a few weeks to show but this small dosage and slow absorption rate has its benefits. It causes much less trauma for the area of the body being treated and is safe.
Surgical Body Contouring Options
Surgical body contouring or liposuction slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits. Our practice offers two of the safest and most effective methods for surgical body sculpting.
Tumescent ultrasound assisted liposuction is a procedure that uses laser and ultrasound technology to melt fat and tighten skin. The technologies are called SmartLipo and CoolLipo. The procedures use high frequency ultrasonic waves to break down the fat and allow the fat cells to be removed. Throughout the process, fluid anesthetizes and controls bleeding. Laser technology directly contracts collagen and tightens the skin, an effect not seen using standard liposuction. The procedure can be performed while the patient is awake with minimal discomfort and quick recovery. Tumescent Ultra Sound Assisted Liposuction can be utilized alone to treat smaller areas of fat, such as below the chin, or to remove larger areas of fat such as in the abdomen, flanks and thighs. The procedure offers the best results with minimal trauma and downtime.
