Life is always busy, no matter what time of year, but it’s important to take time out for yourself. You certainly deserve it, and why put off what makes you happy? That’s why now is the perfect time to treat yourself to some cosmetic surgery treatments focused on your body. This blog discusses some of the best surgical and non-surgical body contouring procedures to enhance your figure so you can walk into any situation feeling confident and looking fabulous. 

Body Contouring Options

With time comes a myriad of changes to your body. Lifestyle changes, work schedules, and children all take time—time that you might have previously spent engaged in workouts or other active pursuits. Less time spent exercising, coupled with a slower metabolism and the natural aging process, can leave you with excess fat or sagging skin, even if you get back on a workout schedule. However, there are several options for body contouring designed to address your concerns, whether you need minor or more serious corrections.

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that eliminates excess skin and fat in your midsection. If you’ve been pregnant or lost significant weight, you’re often left with an “apron” of skin on your stomach. A tummy tuck changes all that, removing the excess skin and giving you a smoother, flatter stomach.

A tummy tuck also addresses a condition called diastasis recti. Diastasis recti occurs when your abdominal muscles separate down the midline and is most commonly caused by pregnancy. However, diastasis recti isn’t limited to women. It can affect anyone and result from weightlifting, significant weight changes, age, and genetics.


Even if you are disciplined with your exercise and diet, you may still struggle with areas of your body where fat won’t go away. It’s not because you’re not working hard enough; it’s simply because that’s how your body carries weight. Since there’s no way to spot-reduce problem areas of flab, liposuction is an excellent solution. 

Liposuction is an incredibly versatile treatment that can address areas of your body from your chin to your knees. Most people choose liposuction to get rid of love handles, back fat, and extra padding in their thighs and buttocks. Liposuction doesn’t require a long recovery and offers effective results in one short procedure.   


SculpSure® is a non-surgical body contouring device that uses laser energy to target the fat cells under your skin. The laser’s heat destroys the fat cells, which are naturally flushed out of your body. No incisions and downtime are required, and you’ll see your results in six to twelve weeks. SculpSure® is an ideal solution for eliminating fat from your abdomen, flanks, thighs, and back. 

Emsculpt Neo®

Emsculpt Neo® is another non-surgical body contouring option that can eliminate excess fat while toning your muscles. Emsculpt Neo® uses electromagnetic energy to contract the muscles in the targeted area, causing them to respond as if you had worked out. The process stimulates your metabolism and can increase your muscle volume by up to 25%. 

At the same time, Emsculpt Neo® uses radiofrequency energy to heat the fat cells under your skin (similar to the SculpSure® process), destroying them so they can be eliminated naturally from your body.
