by Caitlin Obara

When you have spent months and years working diligently toward your goal of having the perfect body, you may be disappointed when you find yourself just short of your goals. Whether you have some excess skin, areas where you have small pockets of fat that just will not go away, or other imperfections that you cannot overcome no matter how hard you try with diet and exercise, you may find yourself wondering how you can put these finishing touches on your look. Get to know some of the ways that you can do just that so that you can schedule your appointments and get the extra help you need to achieve your body goals.

Laser Body Sculpting

If you want to help get rid of small areas of extra fat from your body but do not want to go under the knife and have to deal with surgical recovery, you may want to consider laser body sculpting. This treatment uses a laser in a non-invasive way that will allow you to get rid of your body fat without feeling anything.

The laser used in this cosmetic treatment is known as a cold laser. This means that the light energy that forms the laser is not at high temperatures. The higher the temperature of a laser the more powerful, meaning "hot" lasers are used to cut through tissue rather than provide non-invasive treatment options.

When you go through laser body sculpting, the laser is aimed at the problem areas where you have pockets of fat you want to get rid of. The laser damages the fat cells causing them to essentially melt or dissolve and leave your body. This treatment is only meant to do minor adjustments rather than major weight loss.


If you have slightly larger problem areas that you want to make adjustments to, you may need to try liposuction rather than laser body sculpting. Liposuction is a fairly routine plastic surgery procedure that literally suctions fat tissue out of your body.

A plastic surgeon will make very small incisions through which they can insert a hollow tube into your body. Once the tube reaches the areas of fatty tissue, the doctor will suction those pockets out. Depending on how much tissue you wish to have removed from your body, you may have only one or two incisions or several. Recovery from liposuction is often quite fast with only minor discomfort and bruising for a few weeks after the fact.

Additionally, you will want to be sure to maintain your healthy habits of eating right and exercising after you go through your liposuction treatments to ensure that the results last. If you resume unhealthy habits, you will gain all of the fat back and negate the results you worked so hard for.

Now that you know some of the ways that you can put the finishing touches on your dream body, you can schedule your appointments. You will have the look you have been working towards before you know it. For assistance, talk to a professional like Dr. Robert Fortino Premier Weight Loss Physicians.
