woman who has benefitted from body contouring

What type of body contouring is right for me?

More and more people are choosing body contouring to sculpt the places where unwanted fat can stick around. With a 35% rise in body sculpting and noninvasive fat procedures, cosmetic procedures continue to gain in popularity. Achieving results while avoiding incisions, anesthetics, and recovery time makes body contouring an attractive option.

It’s important to receive treatments by a highly skilled physician who will determine if you are an ideal candidate for body contouring. Our doctors will guide you in deciding which treatment is best for you. When it comes to the options available, there are two, in particular, that offer great results without any downtime.


UltraShape can be thought of as the “personal trainer” of body contouring. This non-surgical procedure uses ultrasound technology to deliver significant fat reduction and smooth results— without any downtime. Fat destruction is maintained permanently when a proper diet and exercise regime are followed. UltraShape is a great solution if you want to remove excess fat in the abdomen and sides. Optimal results require at least three visits spaced two weeks apart.

UltraShape Power is the only FDA-cleared, non-invasive body-shaping procedure that uses focused, pulsed ultrasound energy in the selective destruction of fat cells.
Virtually painless
No heat, no freezing of fat
No scarring
No unwanted side effects
No negative signs of treatment


VelaShape is the “gym membership” of body contouring. Through the use of bipolar radiofrequency energy, infrared light, and vacuum technology, VelaShape targets the fat cells just below the surface of the skin to reduce body circumference and the appearance of cellulite. VelaShape can help treat difficult areas like your arms, thighs, buttocks, sides, and abdomen, improving skin structure and texture for a more contoured body. It is common to experience a brief, warm sensation after the treatment. Typically lasting for a couple of hours, some patients compare the sensation to the effects of a deep tissue massage. The treatment is typically delivered in a series of four sessions, spaced no more than two weeks apart for optimal results.

The VelaShape III system is FDA-cleared for the temporary reduction in thigh and abdominal circumferences as well as the appearance of cellulite.

  • Virtually painless
  • No scarring
  • Pinkish appearance usually disappears within hours
