Non-invasive body contouring is increasingly becoming popular and a growing sector in cosmetic medicine. Body contouring refers to the process of modifying body appearance by changing the shape and size. Most individuals go for the procedure to achieve an improved body appearance by eliminating extra fatty tissue. Non-surgical procedure targets regions where fats persist despite routine exercise and optimal controlled diet. Several techniques of non-invasive body contouring include cryolipolysis, high-intensity focused electromagnetic field, radiofrequency, and laser. These treatment options allow customized therapy for patients to choose, depending on their personal preferences and body goals. This essay aims ay discussing the advantages of non-invasive surgical body contouring.
The main advantage of this procedure is the target treatment. The process targets the exact region that an individual wants to shape. Most areas of concern include thighs, underarms, and belly fat. A procedure such as cryolipolysis targets adipose tissue areas without altering other areas (Mazzoni, Lin, Dubin, & Khorasani, 2019, p. 278). Furthermore, the process is known to cost less compared to surgical procedures. Therefore, it is an attractive and most effective alternative for individuals who cannot afford the surgery costs. The process is also a comfortable one that lasts for few hours compared to surgery. The less invasive procedure is also recognized to have an improved safety profile, and mostly, it has no serious adverse effects (Mazzoni et al., 2019, p. 281). Moreover, patients have minimal or non-existence recovery time as they do not undergo surgery, which requires healing after the incision of tissues. Importantly, patients achieve excellent and permanent results.
Overall, non-surgical body contouring continues to gain much popularity owing to its advantages. These procedures have assisted individuals who have failed to lose weight after dieting and constant exercise. Its benefits, including fewer costs, target treatment, comfortability, no serious adverse effects, and minimal healing time, attract most people.
