Body Contouring Q&A

How does body contouring work?

You generally carry the same number of fat cells throughout your life. When you gain or lose weight, your existing fat cells increase and decrease in size (but not number).

When you lose weight, it’s impossible to control where you lose the pounds. Gender, biology, and genetics all play key roles in where your body readily gives up fat and where it stubbornly holds on, despite your most dedicated weight loss efforts. This is where body contouring comes in. 

At Atlantic Health Medical Associates, the team offers Viora body contouring. Your provider uses a handheld device which sends radiofrequency energy (RF) that passes through your skin and target fat cells below. 

Your fat cells absorb the heat, which effectively destroys them. Afterward, your body flushes out the old cells naturally through your lymphatic system. RF treats stubborn areas of fat without harming the surface of your skin.

What areas can be treated with body contouring?

Depending on your body goals, the Atlantic Health Medical Associates team may recommend body contouring for your:

  • Abdomen
  • Love handles
  • Back
  • Thighs
  • Excess Chin Fat
  • Bra fat
  • Upper arms

Viora body contouring targets each layer of the skin and the size and volume of fat pockets, giving you dramatic results without extensive downtime.

Atlantic Health Medical Associates might also recommend radiofrequency treatment for facial wrinkles, stretch marks, and cellulite. 

How many body contouring sessions do I need?

The number of body contouring sessions you need depends upon the area you want to treat and your aesthetic goals. 

During your initial consultation at Atlantic Health Medical Associates, your provider reviews your goals and determines the appropriate treatment plan for you. Many patients can benefit from 3-5 treatments for maximum results.

When will I see my body contouring results?

You need to allow time for the fat cells to be flushed out and your skin to reform itself over your new, thinner shape. 

You might not see the full results until six to 12 weeks after your final treatment*. To maintain your results, you should follow a healthy diet and exercise regimen so you don’t gain weight in the treated area again.

It’s important to note that non-invasive body contouring shouldn’t be considered a weight loss tool, but a way to put the final touches on your weight loss efforts.
