Body contouring is a term that encompasses a variety of aesthetic procedures designed to reshape and rejuvenate your physique. These procedures can sculpt a flatter abdomen, lift and firm your buttocks, tighten and smooth your skin, and tone your muscles. There are also options for rejuvenating your body after the life-changing experience of pregnancy and childbirth. These procedures are your secret weapon against the stubborn areas that refuse to budge, no matter how many salads you eat or miles you run.

Body contouring offers benefits that go beyond the surface to enhance your overall quality of life. It’s not just about removing unwanted fat or tightening skin; it’s about transforming the way you interact with the world around you. When you achieve the physical changes you’ve been aiming for, a ripple effect often permeates other aspects of your life. Imagine walking into a room and feeling like the best version of yourself, all thanks to the subtle yet impactful changes that body contouring can bring. This newfound state can positively influence your social interactions, your comfort in various settings and even your enthusiasm for life’s simple pleasures. In essence, the physical transformations brought about by body contouring can serve as a catalyst for more enriched and fulfilling life experiences.

Tickle Lipo

Minimally Invasive Liposuction Using Acoustic Vibrations

Tickle Lipo, also known as Nutational Infrasonic Liposculpture (NIL), is a minimally invasive liposuction technique. Unlike traditional liposuction, Tickle Lipo uses low-frequency acoustic vibrations to break up fat cells, making it easier to remove them. The acoustic vibrations also help stimulate collagen production, which may lead to subtle skin tightening over time. The procedure is called “tickle” lipo because the vibrations can create a tickling sensation during the treatment.

Tickle Lipo is ideal for treating stubborn fat deposits in areas like the abdomen, thighs and love handles, offering precise body sculpting with minimal tissue trauma.

How Does Tickle Lipo Work?

Tickle Lipo is generally performed under local anesthesia and completed within a few hours. During the procedure, a small cannula is inserted into the targeted area. The cannula emits infrasonic vibrations that liquefy the fat cells, which are then suctioned out. The technique allows for precise sculpting and is less traumatic to surrounding tissues compared to traditional liposuction methods.

What to Expect After Tickle Lipo

After Tickle Lipo, you can expect to return to most normal activities within a few days. This procedure offers quicker recovery times and less discomfort compared to traditional liposuction.

You may notice some immediate changes in the treated area, but it’s common for the full results to become more apparent over the course of several weeks. This time allows any swelling to subside and the body to adjust to its new contours. Typically, you can expect the most noticeable results within one to three months of your Tickle Lipo procedure.

Skin Tightening Using Hemium Plasma

Renuvion is a revolutionary and minimally invasive skin-tightening procedure that uses plasma technology to stimulate collagen production. It’s an excellent option for those looking to address loose or sagging skin in the neck, abdomen or arms without undergoing a surgical procedure such as a neck lift, tummy tuck or arm lift.

How Does Renuvion Work?

The Renuvion device uses a combination of helium plasma and radiofrequency energy to heat the underlying layers of the skin through small incisions. This process stimulates collagen production, leading to firmer, more youthful skin. The treatment is minimally invasive and can be performed under local anesthesia.

What to Expect After Renuvion

After a Renuvion treatment, you may experience some swelling and redness in the target area, but these symptoms usually subside within a few days. This treatment offers a quicker recovery compared to more invasive surgeries. Renuvion results are often visible immediately and continue to improve over the following months as new collagen forms.

Brazilian Butt Lift

Butt Augmentation Using Fat Transfer

A Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a surgical procedure that enhances the size and shape of your buttocks using your own fat. This treatment is ideal for those who desire a fuller, more rounded posterior without implants. This procedure offers a dual benefit: it removes unwanted fat from problem areas and uses it to create a fuller, more sculpted rear end.

How Does a Brazilian Butt Lift Work?

At the start of a BBL procedure, fat is harvested from other areas of your body, such as the abdomen or thighs, through liposuction or Tickle Lipo. The extracted fat is then purified and injected into the buttocks to achieve the desired volume and shape.

What to Expect After a BBL

A Brazilian Butt Lift typically involves one to two weeks of downtime after the procedure. You’ll need to avoid sitting directly on your buttocks for two to four weeks to allow the newly transferred fat cells to integrate into the buttocks tissue. The Lifestyle Center’s team of experts will provide you with personalized aftercare instructions, such as recommended practices like using a special pillow when sitting, to help you achieve the best possible outcome.

After undergoing a Brazilian Butt Lift, you’ll likely notice an immediate change in the size and shape of your buttocks, but some bruising and swelling may obscure the results. You can expect to see the final, most noticeable results approximately three to six months after the procedure.

Sculptra Butt Lift

Non-surgical Butt Augmentation Using Injectables

A Sculptra butt lift is a non-surgical alternative to the Brazilian Butt Lift. It uses injectable dermal fillers to add volume to the buttocks and stimulate collagen production for a natural look.

How Does a Sculptra Butt Lift Work?

Sculptra, a poly-L-lactic acid filler, is injected into the targeted areas of the buttocks, where it works to stimulate your body’s natural collagen production. The treatment involves a series of injections and offers subtle, natural-looking enhancement. Over time, the new collagen in the area produces a fuller, more youthful butt shape. If you prefer a different filler, Bellafill or Radiesse may be used instead.

What to Expect After a Sculptra Butt Lift

A Sculptra butt lift requires minimal downtime, and you can usually resume your regular activities immediately after the procedure. Results are gradual and typically become noticeable after a few treatment sessions. The effects can last up to two years, making it a long-lasting option for those seeking a non-surgical solution.

Emsculpt Neo

Fat Reduction and Muscle Building With Radiofrequency and Electromagnetic Technology

Emsculpt Neo is a non-invasive treatment that combines radiofrequency heating with high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology. This dual-action approach reduces fat and builds muscle at the same time, offering a comprehensive solution for body sculpting. This procedure is ideal for toning and slimming areas like the abdomen, thighs, buttocks and calves.

How Does Emsculpt Neo Work?

The Emsculpt Neo device emits both radiofrequency and HIFEM energy. The radiofrequency heats the fat cells, causing them to break down and be naturally eliminated by the body. Simultaneously, the HIFEM technology induces powerful muscle contractions, which help to build and tone muscles.

Emsculpt Neo treatments are typically quick, often completed in about 30 minutes. You may feel a warming sensation and muscle contractions during the procedure. A typical treatment plan includes four sessions, each spaced a week apart.

What to Expect After Emsculpt Neo

There’s minimal downtime, and you can resume your regular activities right away. Results can be seen as early as three weeks after the final session, with continued improvement over several months.

CoolSculpting Elite

Non-invasive Fat Reduction Using Cryolipolysis

CoolSculpting Elite is an advanced version of the original CoolSculpting technology, designed to freeze and eliminate stubborn fat cells. It’s a non-invasive treatment that targets fat deposits resistant to diet and exercise, such as those in the abdomen, flanks, back and thighs.

How Does CoolSculpting Elite Work?

The CoolSculpting Elite device uses cryolipolysis to freeze fat cells without affecting the surrounding tissues. Once the fat cells are frozen, they begin to break down and are naturally flushed out by the body over the following weeks.

The treatment is virtually painless and requires no anesthesia. Most patients need multiple sessions to achieve optimal results.

What to Expect After CoolSculpting Elite

After a CoolSculpting Elite session, you may experience some redness, swelling or tingling in the treated area. These symptoms are usually temporary. Results become visible over the course of a few weeks as the body eliminates the destroyed fat cells, with full results generally visible within three months.

Body FX

Fat Reduction and Cellulite Smoothing Using Radiofrequency Energy

Body FX is a non-invasive treatment that uses radiofrequency energy, light vacuum suction and deep tissue heating to reduce cellulite and contour the body. It’s a versatile option for those looking to reduce fat, tighten skin and improve the appearance of cellulite in areas like the abdomen, flanks, back and thighs.

How Does Body FX Work?

The Body FX device uses a combination of radiofrequency energy and vacuum pressure to heat the fat cells, causing them to break down. The treatment also stimulates collagen production, which can improve skin elasticity and texture.

A typical treatment plan includes six to eight sessions lasting about 30 minutes each. Body FX treatments are generally comfortable, and you may feel a warm, deep heating sensation during the procedure.

What to Expect After Body FX

There’s zero downtime needed after Body FX; you can usually return to your regular activities immediately. Results are often visible after the first few sessions, with continued improvement over several weeks.
