Body fat is, of course, necessary for life. It is not only a main source of energy, it acts as a storage site for certain vitamins, is a major ingredient in brain tissue, and is a structural component of all cell membranes. It also provides a padding that protects internal organs and insulates the body against cold temperatures.
However, heredity, body changes from weight gain or loss, pregnancy, and aging (we gain about 10 percent of our body weight per decade during adulthood) sometimes results in a change, or even distortion, in our body’s proportions and curves.
Reducing unwanted fat or reshaping disproportionate curves cannot always be achieved through weight loss and exercise alone. Sometimes, fitness, diet, and skincare are unable to improve uneven contours or bulges or even tighten skin that lacks elasticity. And after all of the dieting, exercise programs, and creams, we are still unable to reduce the bulges, sagging skin, and stubborn cellulite.
Body contouring and shaping includes different techniques to help reshape and rejuvenate areas such as the neck, upper arms, female and male breasts, abdomen, flanks, back, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, and ankles. Luckily, we are now able to leverage non-invasive technology to reduce size in these areas, improve tone in lax skin, and diminish the appearance of cellulite—all without the downtime or general anesthesia associated with traditional plastic surgery.
