After a long, hard winter, it’s safe to say we are living our best lives this summer. But are you spending another summer wearing a swimsuit that hides your belly when you really want to be wearing a bikini?
If your stomach is getting in the way of loving your looks, fret not, there’s a variety of body contouring procedures that can help you achieve your summer body. Here are a few of the hottest body contouring procedures perfect for improving your physique.
VelaShape III could be your solution to getting your best summer body on a time crunch. This fast and effective nonsurgical fat and cellulite reduction treatment can be completed in 60 to 90 minutes and requires no downtime.
VelaShape uses a combination of infrared, vacuum and radiofrequency energy to gradually dissolve fat cells, improve skin tone and minimize cellulite. Men and women typically experience continued improvement over the course of 8 to 10 weeks after treatment.
Depending on your trouble zones, UltraShape Power may be better suited for your swimsuit bod. UltraShape uses ultrasound technology to reduce fat cells around the stomach, thighs or buttocks. This painless body contouring treatment can be squeezed in on your lunch break as it only takes 30 to 90 minutes to complete.
Most people experience the best results with 3 to 4 sessions spaced out a couple of weeks apart. With gradual results developing over the course of 3 months after the final treatment.
If multiple areas of your body are making you want to cover up, then a more comprehensive body contouring approach is the way to go. Liposuction can sculpt and define multiple areas of your body including your abdomen, back, hips, thighs and love handles. Since liposuction is a surgical procedure, your recovery and results will take longer. However, the dramatic results of lipo may be worth the wait to rock your summer body next season.
