Body Contouring Q&A

What is body contouring?

Body contouring is a type of procedure that manipulates your body’s tissues in a way that makes your figure look tighter, slimmer, or more toned in some way. While surgical body contouring procedures might be your first thought, modern technology allows you to lose fat or tighten loose skin on your body with no incisions or physical fat removal whatsoever. 

Nagi Ibrahim M.D. uses ultrasound energy to conduct body contouring procedures safely and with no discomfort. Ultrasound is a form of energy composed of sound waves. Unlike other types, it does not emit any ionizing radiation and does not pose a threat to your health. 

The ultrasound energy can remove deposits of fat beneath your skin that don’t respond to diet or exercise. While the fat cells are immediately damaged, your body naturally flushes them out over time through its lymphatic system.

What are the results of body contouring?

Body contouring can target areas that you struggle to tone or refine with your regular workouts. Even healthy eating can’t always perfect the shape or contours of your body since some fat deposits remain in place due to your genetics. 

For fat reduction, you can target your:

  • Abdomen
  • Chin and neck
  • Thighs
  • Under breast area
  • Hips

Fat reduction isn’t the only effect of ultrasound body contouring treatments: They can also help tighten and firm your skin by inducing new or improved production of collagen and elastin. Without surgery, ultrasound energy can give you a face or neck lift or correct under-eye bags and droopy lids. 

Am I a candidate for body contouring?

Ultrasound body contouring is very safe and much more low risk than other surgical options and even many comparable non-surgical options. Still, you must go to Nagi Ibrahim M.D. for a consultation before your appointment. 

During the consultation, you should be sure to bring up any recent medical procedures, allergies, and current medications. You should also address your treatment goals. Your provider uses this information to make sure body contouring is safe for your mental and physical health. Good candidates for ultrasound body contouring are:

  • Nonsmokers
  • Within a normal weight range
  • In generally good health
  • People with goals that others in their lives do not dictate
  • Over 18

Your provider makes sure your goals and expectations are realistic and align well with the abilities of ultrasound energy body contouring treatments. You should only consider these treatments if you’re within 15 pounds of your ideal weight goal.
