Am I a Good Candidate for Body Contouring?
Candidates for UltraShape® POWER and VelaShape® III understand these treatments are not for weight loss. You should be close to your ideal weight with a BMI of 30 or lower for these two treatments to bring you satisfactory results. Liposuction, a tummy tuck, or a mommy makeover are a different set of criteria. The best candidates are non-smokers in general good health who are looking to reduce fat, tighten skin, and sculpt their body to a slimmer, more toned shape. A thorough medical history will determine which treatment options are ideal for you, and a customized treatment plan can be created to address all your concerns.
What is Treatment Like?
With UltraShape® POWER and VelaShape® III, treatments take between 30-45 minutes to complete. They’re non-invasive and therefore require no pain management, nor do they result in significant downtime. Both treatments deliver almost a soothing sensation, either through vibration or heat, that feels more like a spa treatment.
For a surgical procedure with Dr. Leong, your treatment is customized to exacting standards with your goals at the heart of it all. We want you to be as satisfied as our prior patients, so before your procedure takes place, we’ll answer all your questions and go over your plan step by step. The post-operative care for liposuction, tummy tuck, or mommy makeover is different for each procedure, so that will also be highly customized.
What Results Can I Expect?
UltraShape® POWER patients experience a measurable reduction in body circumference, improved shape and contour of their physique, a decrease in the volume of fat pockets, and a more harmonious balance of your overall body shape. As it takes time to filter away disrupted fat cells, you’ll see results around 2-4 weeks after initial treatment with a peak of accumulated results occurring around 3 months. VelaShape® III patients report smoother, firmer skin with a reduction of cellulite and more toning at around 2 weeks, reaching their peak around 2 months. For both procedures, 3 treatments are recommended, though you can schedule additional treatments until your goals are achieved.
Surgical body contouring results are generally noticeable right away, although they can be obscured by swelling and bandaging. While it takes more time to recover, surgical body contouring solutions can be dramatic while remaining natural looking.
