Get to Your Best Body This Year Through Body Contouring

Each year, millions of people make resolutions that somehow involve body shape. Whether it’s losing weight, getting more toned, or both, the goals are worthwhile ones in terms of your overall health and wellness.

While there’s a bit of work on your end, not every stage of your body-shape journey needs to be a tough one. Once you get to within your goals, why not allow Dr. Jack Tubbs and the team here at Associates in Obstetrics & Gynecology to take over? We offer three exciting — and minimally invasive — body-sculpting technologies that can help you get to your dream body more quickly. 

1. Tackle those blasted bumps

Losing weight can be frustrating, to say the least. While you watch the number on your scale go down, you’re not thrilled with the stubborn deposits of fat that cling to your body, ignoring all of your efforts.

This is because, when you lose weight, your body decides where it sheds the excess fat, not you. This means it’s impossible to target certain problematic areas through diet alone, which is where our exciting SculpSure® body-sculpting technology picks up the slack.

With SculpSure, we deliver a heating energy into the fat cells that are creating those stubborn lumps and bumps — and destroy them. The energy passes harmlessly through the surface of your skin and is absorbed by the fat cells. 

With SculpSure, we can reduce the fat cells in your treatment areas by up to 24%, which is why these fat-reduction technologies, in general, rank number three in minimally and noninvasive cosmetic procedures in the United States. In 2022 alone, there were nearly 683,000 such procedures

2. Liposuction the smart way

If you have more than just a few bumps you’d like to get rid of, we offer SmartLipo®, which is next-level liposuction that removes fat. 

What sets SmartLipo apart is that we first insert a laser cannula into your treatment area and deliver an energy that essentially melts your fat, making it much easier for us to remove. Since this disrupts your tissues far less than traditional liposuction, we perform the procedure on an outpatient basis using only local anesthesia. Better still, there’s only a day or two of downtime afterward.

Not only is SmartLipo incredibly effective at removing stubborn fat, the laser energy also works to tighten your skin so you’ll realize results for up to 6 months afterward as your body continues to respond to your treatments.

3. Tighten it up

Another issue that many people encounter is looser skin after dieting or more wrinkled skin as you get older. 

If you reach your target weight, but you’re hesitant to show off your great results because of loose skin, we can turn to our skin-tightening technology, BodyTite®.

With BodyTite, we create a call for collagen using laser energy. Collagen is the protein responsible for the support in your skin. But after the age of 40, you start to lose up to 1% of your collagen production each year

In many cases, all you need is one treatment and your results will settle into place gradually as new collagen tightens your skin from below.
