In terms of aesthetics, body contouring is considered to be non-surgical methods to help firm-up, shape up and assist in reducing unwanted rolls, bumps and folds on the body. It is also referred to as non-surgical fat reduction or body shaping.
Options for body contouring
There are a variety of non-surgical procedures available for body contouring. The aim of these is to reduce or remove stubborn pockets of fat, to tighten up areas of loose or sagging and to better ‘shape’ different areas of the body. It is important to note that body contouring or body shaping does not equal weight loss. It is equally important to note that the ideal candidate for body contouring treatments is someone close to their goal weight, but who has a few stubborn areas that are resistant to diet and exercise.
