Body Contouring in Westchester County NY

Schedule free consultation

Body contouring has become an increasingly popular way for both women and men to sculpt their body and achieve the silhouette they desire. 

In Westchester County, New York, interest in body contouring continues to grow. Patients are seeking out options like CoolSculpting to target stubborn fat in problem areas like the abdomen, thighs, and arms. The goal is to reduce fat bulges and tone muscles to look slimmer and more fit.

What is Body Contouring?

Body contouring uses both surgical and nonsurgical techniques to change the shape and sculpt specific areas of your body. Procedures target and remove stubborn fat deposits and excess skin to smooth bulges and provide a slimmer, more toned physical appearance. Both women and men seek out body contouring for common concerns like:

  • Reducing abdominal fat and tightening loose skin after pregnancy or weight loss
  • Eliminating love handles and back/bra rolls
  • Reshaping, lifting or enhancing the buttocks
  • Toning arms, thighs, knees or other areas with excess fat or loose skin

Body contouring differs from weight loss procedures like gastric sleeve or bypass that focus on overall fat reduction. The goal of body contouring is to address problem spots that diet and exercise alone can’t fix. Procedures range from non-invasive fat reduction to liposuction to body lifts, depending on your specific goals.

CoolSculpting for Body Contouring

One of the most popular body contouring options is offered at Bellava MedAesthetics — CoolSculpting — an innovative non-invasive fat reduction treatment.

How It Works

CoolSculpting uses a process called cryolipolysis to eliminate diet and exercise-resistant fat. The device uses cooling panels set to a specific temperature to gently freeze fat cells under the skin. 

Over a 1-3 hour period, the cold triggers fat cell death. The body then naturally eliminates these dead cells over 2-4 months.

Areas Treated

At Bellava MedAesthetics, common areas treated with CoolSculpting include:

  • Abdomen – reduces belly fat
  • Flanks/love handles – slims obliques
  • Inner/outer thighs – reshapes bulky areas
  • Back fat/bra line – eliminates back rolls
  • Arms – contours flabby upper arms
  • Chin – reduces double chin appearance

Benefits of CoolSculpting

Why do so many patients choose CoolSculpting? Benefits include:

  • Permanently eliminates treated fat cells. They will not regrow.
  • Non-invasive procedure, no anesthesia or downtime needed
  • Customizable applicator cups cool target treatment areas only
  • Gradual, natural-looking results appear over 1-3 months
  • Safe for all skin types with minimal side effects
  • No surgery means no incisions, scarring or extensive recovery

Procedure and Recovery

The CoolSculpting session involves:

  • Vacuum applicator placed on target area to draw in tissue
  • Controlled cooling applied to freeze fat cells and induce cell death
  • Applicator removed after fat tissue is properly frozen, typically 35-75 minutes
  • Optional massage of area to stimulate drainage of dead cells

Body Contouring Candidacy and Qualifications

Who is an ideal candidate for body contouring procedures? Here are some factors plastic surgeons evaluate during consultations.

Ideal Candidates

In general, the best candidates for body contouring include:

Those Near Their Ideal Weight: You’ll see optimal results if your weight is stable and any large fluctuations won’t compromise your results. Losing a large amount of weight after body contouring can negatively impact improvements.

Have Specific Problem Areas: The best results come from targeting localized fat deposits or loose skin like abdominal fat or arm flab that are resistant to diet and exercise.

Have Good Skin Elasticity: For procedures like tummy tucks that remove a lot of excess skin, your skin needs to retain enough elasticity for tightening and contouring.

Have Realistic Expectations: Understanding the limitations of body contouring helps set achievable goals for improvements.

Non-Ideal Candidates for Body Contouring

Those below may not be good candidates currently for body contouring:

  • Significantly Overweight: Being more than 30 pounds over your ideal weight can compromise results and safety. Losing weight first is recommended.
  • Poor Skin Elasticity: Skin that has lost elasticity due to aging or genetics may not tighten sufficiently after removal of excess fat.
  • Underlying Health Issues: Medical issues like heart disease, diabetes or bleeding disorders can increase procedural risks. Optimizing health first is advised.
  • Unrealistic Expectations: Expecting body contouring to deliver radical weight loss or exaggerate features often leads to disappointment. A balanced approach is required.

Body Contouring Consultation Process

During your first appointment at Bellava MedAesthetics, you’ll discuss your goals and concerns to determine if body contouring is right for you. Key elements include:

  • Complete Health History: We will review your current health status, medications, drug allergies, previous procedures and other factors to assess risks.
  • Discuss Your Goals: We’ll ask about the changes you want to achieve, problem spots you want to improve, and expectations you have. Photographs may be taken to analyze concerns.
  • Physical Examination: You’ll undergo an exam of your skin, area(s) of concern, muscle tone, skin elasticity and other factors that impact options.
  • Address Concerns: We welcome all your questions to ensure you feel comfortable moving forward with body contouring procedures at Bellava MedAesthetics.
