Body Contouring is the Secret Behind Successful Weight Loss

You hit the gym daily and eat veggies at every meal… so why do you still have a belly bulge or extra fat on your thighs? 

The truth is, sometimes we just can’t beat our genes. Not with the usual measures, like diet and exercise, anyway. If you’ve been struggling with stubborn body fat, body contouring could be the secret that finally gets you to your goal weight and figure. 

Benefits of body contouring

Dr. Jack Hensel, Jr. at Lowcountry Plastic Surgery Center in South Carolina, is a firm believer that body contouring is the key to successful weight loss. He shares his top three reasons why:

One treatment can target many areas.

Everyone has stubborn fat somewhere, and many people have multiple trouble areas. With the right body contouring treatment, you can target multiple areas in one session for ultimate efficiency and outstanding results. 

Treatments are quick and safe.

Many body contouring procedures, such as WarmSculpting™ with Sculpsure® and SmartLipo, can be completed in just one hour. All of the procedures that Dr. Hensel offers are FDA-approved, and under the hand of an expert in body contouring, you can rest assured your treatment will go smoothly. 

Results are long-lasting.

Whichever body contouring method you choose, you can be confident that your results will last. Whether you go with liposuction, a tummy tuck, a body lift, a laser procedure, or anything else, you’ll enjoy lasting fat loss and an improved figure as long as your weight stays stable after your procedure. 

Which type of body contouring is best?

Trick question — there’s no right answer. Just like no diet is the perfect diet for everyone, no single type of body contouring is the best type for everyone. The best method of body contouring for you depends on all sorts of factors, including: 

SmartLipo, traditional liposuction, CoolSculpting, and surgical procedures all offer different benefits, with the ultimate goal being weight loss. Dr. Hensel will review all of your options during your consultation and advise you on the best course of treatment.
