When Is the Time Right for Body Contouring After Major Weight Loss?


Losing a large amount of weight is a significant milestone and a cause for celebration. Whether the weight loss is a result of surgery or years of commitment and dedication, you will enjoy improved health and  quality of life. However, you may still struggle with problem areas that resist your efforts to improve them through diet and exercise. Our board-certified plastic surgeons at Allure Anti-Aging and Aesthetics can perform body contouring procedures to help create beautiful, long-lasting results.

What Is Body Contouring?

Shedding body fat has proven to reduce your risk of developing health conditions like heart disease and diabetes, in addition to taking your self-esteem to new heights. However, some areas of the body will not respond to diet and exercise alone. Body contouring procedures target these trouble zones, effectively reshaping and tightening nearly any area of the body and eliminating hanging skin.

Different Body Contouring Procedures

At Allure Anti-Aging and Aesthetics, we offer Evolve Trim and Evolve Muscle Stimulation to help tone and reshape the body.

Evolve Trim

This treatment combines the power of radiofrequency energy, energy pulses, and suction to transform the body in a non-invasive, non-surgical way. The radiofrequency energy works by quickly destroying fat cells on the body without damaging the surrounding skin or tissue. The powerful energy pulses remodel the skin and tissue to transform and tone stubborn areas, while gentle suction ensures the delivery of Evolve’s energy within the skin for better results.

Evolve Trim removes fat like liposuction, but takes the fat removal a step further by providing skin tightening, too.

Evolve Trim creates ideal results on the abdomen, thighs, waist, hips, buttocks, back, knees, and arms. It’s an excellent follow-up treatment after weight loss to help reach areas that don’t respond to diet and exercise for a total-body rejuvenation.

Evolve Muscle Stimulation

Lean muscle is the secret to looking fit and burning calories even while resting, but building muscle takes time, effort, and energy. Electric muscle stimulation – also known as e-stim or EMS – encourages the muscle fibers to contract at a much faster rate than possible during a traditional workout.

EMS can provide excellent results for virtually any muscle group, including the abs, glutes, quads, hamstrings, biceps, triceps, pecs, and lats. Achieving muscle growth through traditional methods, such as weightlifting, resistance exercises, and cardio, requires a slow and steady approach. Hours of squats, lunges, crunches, and rows with little reward can be frustrating. By adding EMS to your fitness regimen, you can enhance the progress you make at the gym many times over and ultimately flex the results you’ve made after weight loss.
