Defined Body Spa’s body contouring treatment presents a solution. Don’t resign yourself to low confidence in your appearance. You can get the body shape you’ve always wanted with the skillful body contouring treatments at our Fairfax, VA office. We know that the body contouring procedure can raise many questions, so we’ve compiled the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions.

What is Body Contouring and What Problems Can It Address?

The body contouring procedures we perform at Defined Body Spa involve directly removing fat cells from your body. In this way, we can eliminate stubborn fat deposits in several areas of the body. Through various procedures, body contouring can address fat in the abdomen, thighs, back, chin, or love handles. This removal of fat cells is often helpful for people who have lost significant amounts of weight and were left with sagging skin.

What Body Contouring Treatments are Available?

Numerous body contouring treatments are currently available. Our medical professionals are trained in a slew of fat removal procedures that will have you looking and feeling your best. Among the treatments that fall into the body, the contouring category includes arms, RF facials, lower body lifts, medial thigh lifts, and tummy reduction.

What Is the Body Contouring Procedure Like?

The body contouring procedure will vary based on what part of the body you’d like the excess fat removed. At Defined Body Spa, we use different modalities for our body contouring services. This procedure begins with laser energy projected onto unwanted fat cells. The energy heats and damages the fat cells, causing them to be eliminated. Patients will need to allow six weeks for best results.

Will I Need Multiple Treatments?

After your initial body contouring procedure, you won’t need additional treatments to begin seeing results. You’ll need to stick to a healthy diet and exercise schedule to maintain your new body shape. However, you’ll be able to maintain your results on your own, and you won’t need any more medical procedures to continue enjoying your self-esteem boost.

When Will I See Results and How Long Do They Last?

Most patients see results of the body contouring procedure after six weeks. These results can potentially last a long time. For best results, patients only need to maintain a healthy eating and exercise regimen and keep up with general fitness. Though most patients notice the effects of body contouring for years, it’s completely natural to lose body firmness with age. The results of body contouring are evident to most patients, but it’s important to remember that individual results may vary. Success may look different on different patients, and some may see change faster or slower than others.

Is Body Contouring Expensive?

Because of the nature of the procedure, the cost of body contouring may be different from patient to patient. It depends on which treatment options your treatment specialist is always happy to discuss the expenses of your specific treatment with you.

Am I A Good Candidate for Body Contouring?

At Defined Body Spa, it’s our mission to restore our patients’ confidence in their bodies. However, we never compromise the safety of our patients to do so. Before scheduling a body contouring procedure, we want to make sure you’re a good candidate. Good candidates for body contouring are nonsmokers and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Those interested in the procedure should let our staff know of any preexisting medical conditions, as some of these can interfere with the operation or the recovery process.
