None of us want to look older than we actually are. Unfortunately, excess pockets of stubborn fat can make you look years older than your chronological age. At ChiYan MediSpa in Culter Bay, FL, we are proud to offer the most innovative face and body contouring methods on the market. Read on to discover if you should consider contouring your body with radiofrequency.
8 Signs You Should Consider Body Contouring
1. You Aren’t Pregnant
The FDA has not tested radiofrequency body contouring for safety or efficacy during pregnancy. Therefore, you should only consider this treatment if you aren’t pregnant. We also recommend our clients wait until they have finished nursing to consider this treatment.
2. You’re Done Having Children
The results of this treatment are considered permanent. The adult human body cannot grow new fat cells. Therefore, once fat cells are removed from the body, you will have a reduced number of fat cells permanently.
However, roughly 60% of pregnancies result in weight gain. While some of this weight gain is blood, other bodily fluids, and nutrients, many women also gain fat during pregnancy. If you gain fat during pregnancy, you may find that the results of your body contouring treatment are negated and you will need a follow-up treatment.
3. You Have Enough Fat to Treat
You should consider body sculpting treatment if you have enough fat to treat. During your initial consultation, we will help you determine if body sculpting can help you achieve your ideal aesthetic. You may hate the appearance of your underarms in tank tops. However, if there isn’t enough fat to treat, body sculpting will not help you achieve your ideal aesthetic.
4. You Are Around a Healthy Weight
The best time to consider body sculpting is when you are within 30 pounds of your ideal weight. If you have over 30 pounds to lose, there is a chance that you will not be satisfied with the results of treatment. If you are struggling to get down to a healthy weight, ask your general healthcare provider for a referral to a licensed nutritionist to help you lose weight.
5. You Are Confident You Can Maintain Your Weight
Another sign that you should consider body sculpting is that you are confident you can maintain your weight. There is no telling where your body will store excess calories in the form of fat. Even if you remove 20% to 25% of the fat cells in your back, the remaining fat cells may expand with fatty tissue if you gain weight in the future.
The best candidates for this treatment have maintained their current weight for a couple of years. However, we often successfully treat clients who still have 10 to 30 pounds to go to their goal weight. Often, seeing the improvement to your body contours can give you the motivation you need to push to your final goal.
6. You Hate the Way Your Clothes Fit
If you hate the way your clothes fit, you should consider body sculpting. Sometimes, clients are at or near their ideal weight but their body is disproportionate. For instance, they may struggle to find a dress that fits because their bust or hips are larger than their waist. Or, they may struggle to fit into jeans because their thighs are much larger than their waist.
If nothing in your closet fits you right and the prospect of shopping fills you with dread, you may be the perfect candidate for radiofrequency body sculpting. You may use it to reduce fat from your chest and hips or buttocks if they are disproportionately large. Or, you may use it to sculpt the perfect abdomen if the rest of your body is taut and toned. This will help your clothes fit better.
7. You Aren’t Healthy Enough for General Anesthesia
One of the best things about radiofrequency body sculpting is it is completely comfortable. Therefore, there is no need for general anesthesia. If your heart and lungs aren’t healthy enough to be put under general anesthesia for several hours, you are not a good candidate for liposuction. But that doesn’t mean you can’t sculpt your body. Radiofrequency body sculpting is the perfect alternative.
8. You Can’t Get Time Off Work
You should strongly consider radiofrequency body sculpting if you wish to improve your body contours but you can’t get five to 10 days off of work to recover from liposuction. While the results of liposuction are dramatic, you will need to take at least a week or two off of work to recover depending on what type of job you have.
Contrastingly, there is no downtime associated with radiofrequency body sculpting. After treatment, you are free to return to your regularly scheduled daily activities. Moreover, there are no complicated post-treatment self-care steps you need to take. If you are looking for a low-maintenance way to remove unwanted excess fat from your body, consider radiofrequency body contouring.
