Non-surgical Body Sculpting Options

Posted March 31, 2017 in Cellfina, CoolSculpting, Kybella, Smartlipo, ThermiTight®

Not everyone who wants to tighten their abdomen, shrink their thighs, or trim down their flanks has to “go under the knife.” For many qualifying patients, non-surgical or minimally invasive body sculpting procedures can improve body shape without the lengthy downtime, scarring, and risks associated with surgery.


CoolSculpting® is an FDA-approved and non-invasive fat removal procedure that can enhance body shape and help you feel confident in your appearance. Patients who wish to get rid of stubborn fat but who do not want to undergo liposuction can undergo CoolSculpting® instead and achieve a firmer, more fabulous body. This procedure delivers controlled cooling directly to the fat cells, causing them to crystallize. The body absorbs the damaged tissue over time, leading to a leaner body without requiring any needles, incisions, scarring, or downtime. CoolSculpting® permanently rids the body of a portion of excess fat and can treat visible fat bulges beneath the chin and along the thighs, abdomen, flanks, and back.

CoolSculpting® Before and After Photos

CoolSculpting® Patient


Some patients inherit their double chin, while others develop it with age or weight gain. KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment for moderate to severe double chins, and it can help you reclaim your more youthful appearance (and a more attractive “selfie”). This injectable is formulated with deoxycholic acid and helps break down and absorb fat. KYBELLA® can be injected into the area beneath the chin, and over time, the deoxycholic acid will break down the fat cells. This leads to a permanently slimmer and more defined chin that can create a more slender facial appearance. Patients may need between one and six treatments to achieve their ideal results.

Minimally Invasive Procedures

In addition to these non-surgical procedures, the following minimally invasive procedures can enhance body shape without surgery.


Smartlipo® is a minimally invasive form of liposuction that relies on laser technology. This procedure is ideal for patients who have stubborn pockets of fat but no loose skin, such as young women, men, and women who have not undergone pregnancy. Much more gentle than traditional liposuction, Smartlipo® can eliminate stubborn fat to improve your body shape. After local anesthesia is administered, a cannula with a laser fiber is inserted through the skin to melt the fatty deposits. This makes the fat easier to suction out and triggers collagen production. Treatment takes only an hour or less and can have as few as two days of downtime. Smartlipo® can be used nearly anywhere on the body and is often used to slim the arms, legs, abdomen, buttocks, and area under the chin.


Cellfina™ is the only FDA-approved minimally invasive procedure for cellulite treatment. This one-time procedure severs the fibrous bands of skin that cause the unflattering dimpling known as cellulite. Once the tension is released with this innovative approach, the treated skin can smooth itself out and leave you with the firm legs you’ve always wanted. Cellfina™ improves the appearance of cellulite and can help your leg and buttock area appear smoother and softer. Treatment has no scarring, limited downtime, and quick results that last up to three years.


ThermiTight® is a minimally invasive treatment that melts away fat and tightens the skin. Using controlled radiofrequency waves, ThermiTight® heats the tissues to melt fat and trigger collagen formation. After the procedure, patients will experience bruising and need to wear a compression garment. Results can be seen within a few weeks and will continue to improve over the next few months. With a single treatment session and little downtime, patients can see improvements in the neck, arms, abdomen, thighs, and knees.
