If you have stubborn pockets of fat on your abdomen, hips, and other areas, you may have inherited that tendency from one (or both) of your parents. More than 60% of fat distribution is caused by genetics.
However, you can override those fat genes if you want to fit into your skinny jeans. In addition to a healthy diet and regular exercise, high technology solutions such as body contouring can carve away stubborn fat and finally reveal the figure you’ve worked so hard to achieve.
At Enrich Family Practice in Odessa, Texas, our expert nurse practitioners recommend body sculpting with noninvasive, FDA-cleared SculpSure®. What happens when you say yes to body contouring? You get to say good-bye to excess fat forever. Here’s why and how.
When you want to lose weight and sculpt a trimmer figure, you’re probably focused on numbers. You may worry about and track:
But even after you’ve achieved your goal weight and lowered your BMI, you may still be frustrated with your figure. That’s because of other numbers that influence how you look and feel: the circumference of your trouble areas and the number of fat cells those areas contain.
The reason you may have excess inches of fat under your chin, on your tummy, or on your butt, is not because you're not working out enough, but simply because you’ve inherited more than the “normal” number of fat cells in those areas.
So, no matter how much weight you lose, and how much fat you shed, those troublesome areas stay stubbornly put. Your fat cells may have shrunk overall, but the fact that you have extra fat cells keeps the proportion of your body looking curvier and lumpier than you desire.
Noninvasive SculpSure works by eliminating the excess fat cells that create stubborn bulges, rolls, and pockets. Each SculpSure session destroys up to 24% of fat cells in treated areas, such as:
Targeting a single area takes only 25 minutes per session. You can target multiple areas in one treatment session.
While you’ve probably thought about your figure in terms of how many pounds you weigh, when it comes to body-sculpting, think about the inches you want to lose instead. While SculpSure does destroy fat cells and your body eliminates them forever, the weight of that excess fat only adds up to a few pounds.
However, the effect of your reduced circumference is profound. You may lose up to several inches of fat overall, completely and forever altering the shape of your body for the better.
Even if you backslide and end up gaining a few pounds, that extra fat will be distributed only to the fat cells left after SculpSure, which means you won’t have bulges that distort your proportions. Of course, to maintain your optimal figure you should keep your weight stable through healthy eating and exercise.
You didn’t develop fatty bulges instantly, and you can’t lose them instantly, either, without turning to invasive liposuction. SculpSure only destroys about 20-25% of fat cells at a time, so you may want a series of treatments to sculpt your body to your goal proportions.
Some women and men notice a change in their figure within a few weeks. Usually, however, it can take up to six weeks before your new proportions start to emerge.
Your body gradually eliminates the fat cells that SculpSure destroyed, so your results look more natural, too. Optimal results are usually seen around week 12.
Removing fat with surgical liposuction requires downtime and recovery. You don’t need either with SculpSure. Instead of incisions and invasive vacuuming, SculpSure uses heat to destroy fat cells from outside your body.
The relaxing and comfortable procedure usually takes about half an hour, depending on how many areas you want to target. You can return to your normal activities directly after SculpSure. No downtime at all.
