From makeup kits to tutorials on YouTube, contouring has become all the rage – or so I’ve heard – in makeup application. But did you know, contouring isn’t limited to blush, highlighter and bronzer?

With summer just around the corner, now is the perfect time to embrace the benefits of body contouring and get yourself summertime ready.

Target Specific Areas of Your Body

Opting for body contouring opens the door to many procedures that can help target specific areas of the body and give your self-confidence a boost. In fact, procedures such as Profound,  Liposuction and CoolSculpting® offer outstanding results, particularly for the areas often found difficult to tone despite a healthy lifestyle.

Profound is a great non-invasive option for treating cellulite on the thighs and tightening the abdomen. Liposuction uses minimal incisions to insert a tiny, straw like device to suction out body fat. Before suction, the area is flushed with a solution to ensure greater ease of cell removal, less pain, and a more rapid recovery.

In terms of CoolSculpting®, my team of body contouring specialists use a customized cryolipolysis (cooling) applicator and target specific areas outlined in your initial consultation, usually the thighs, abdomen, arms, buttocks, back or hips. After undergoing the treatment, fat cells are reabsorbed into the body as waste and are expelled through natural processes – resulting in a slimmer shape with greater muscle definition.

Feel Good In Your Swimsuit

Slipping into your bathing suit and not feeling completely satisfied with how you look can be very overwhelming. Growing in popularity is Labiaplasty. This procedure can help alter the inner and outer labia – ultimately offering many women a solution for discomfort and less than desired physical appearance.

Another form of body contouring includes breast augmentation or reduction. Whether you are looking to increase or reduce your breast size, you’d be happy to know that with advances in techniques, the recovery time for these procedures is much less than you might think.

Although the use of implants is the most common and sought-after method for women seeking breast augmentation, fat enhancement injections, also known as fat grafting, can offer a subtler, less invasive solution. In this increasingly popular technique, fat from another part of the body, such as the thighs, buttocks or abdomen is transferred to the chest area, resulting in fuller, perkier and more youthful looking breasts with minimal scarring.

And, if you’re looking for a more round and curvy derriere this summer, fat-grafting is also available for gluteal enhancement. Ultimately accentuating the ratio between the waistline and the buttocks, a butt lift can help create the beautiful curves and chiseled definition near impossible to achieve through diet and exercise alone. Additionally, because fat grafting may involve liposuction, clients can even experience an added slimming benefit.
