The advent of new body sculpting procedures such as CoolSculpting®, Protégé Elite® and Vanquish® have brought about new noninvasive options in body fat removal and skin tightening.
Historically, the approach to body contouring has largely involved invasive procedures,such as liposuction. Recently, several new devices for noninvasive fat removal have received clearance by the Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of fat deposits. These procedures are aimed primarily at targeting the physical properties of fat that differentiate it from the overlying epidermis and dermis, thus selectively resulting in fat removal.
On a daily basis, the average American is inundated through various media outlets with “too good to be true” weight loss supplements, exercise regimens, and images of the idealized prototypical body. In addition to societal pressures,as our knowledge of the detrimental effects of obesity grows, there is further motivation for weight loss and fat reduction.
Body contouring or Body sculpting refers to the optimization of the definition, smoothness, and shape of the human physique. Historically, the approach to body contouring has largely involved invasive procedures, such as liposuction. Liposuction is among the top 5 cosmetic surgical procedures performed in the United States. A recent study found that upward of 33% of women and 15% of men, across all age-groups, are interested in liposuction. Along with safety concerns, several other factors have influenced the development of noninvasive nonsurgical approaches to body contouring of surgical procedures.
