Body Contouring Q&A

What is body contouring?

Body contouring is a term used to refer to treatments that use hot or cold temperatures to destroy a portion of targeted fat cells. At Osteoporosis and Rheumatology Center of Tampa Bay, you have access to WarmSculpting with SculpSure, an innovative body contouring treatment from Cynosure®. 

Body contouring is a great way to refine the shape of your body by permanently eliminating fat cells in your problem areas. Treatment areas include your upper and lower abdomen, flanks, back, inner and outer thighs, and even the area beneath your chin. 

Why can’t I get rid of stubborn fat deposits?

You have fat cells throughout your body, but most are located in a layer just beneath the surface of your skin. Each of these cells has the ability to expand and contract to accommodate more or less fat. 

When you take in more calories than you burn, a portion of the excess is converted into fat and stored in your fat cells. This causes areas of your body to expand. When you burn more calories than you take in, your fat cells shrink, as do areas of your body. 

The problem is that you can’t control which fat cells are tapped when you burn calories. Everyone stores fat a bit differently, which can lead to problem areas that don’t respond to diet and exercise. 

How does SculpSure work?

During a WarmSculpting treatment, the SculpSure device gently heats your problem areas using carefully controlled laser energy. The surface of your skin remains at a comfortable temperature, while the targeted fat cells heat up enough to compromise their structural integrity. 

Those damaged cells release their stored fat, which is processed and eliminated from your body through your lymphatic system. Those fat cells will not regenerate, leaving you with lasting fat reduction. It’s important to note that subsequent weight gain can mar your results, so WarmSculpting treatment is best suited for men and women who have reached and can maintain a stable weight. 

Treatments take less than an hour and aren’t painful. There’s no need for advance preparation or any form of anesthesia. You can relax and listen to music or read during your visit, and then return to your normal routines immediately afterward.
