Finish Off Your Weight-Loss Journey with Body Contouring

Bariatric surgery is an excellent way for extremely overweight people to shed excess pounds. And making changes to your diet and exercise regimen can go a long way toward helping you achieve your weight loss goals.

But even as you become leaner and fitter, you may still have areas of stubborn fat that you can’t eliminate through diet and exercise alone. Bulges of fat may be particularly persistent around your belly and on your hips and thighs.

That’s where body contouring can help. Body-contouring procedures can get rid of frustrating pockets of body fat without surgery.

Here at Northwest EndoSurgical in Houston, Dr. Matthew St. Laurent and the rest of our team provide two types of body contouring that can help you reach the finish line in your weight-loss journey: CoolSculptingⓇ and truSculptⓇ 3D.

CoolSculpting: Give fat a chill

CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical, noninvasive procedure that uses cold to destroy fat cells.

During your CoolSculpting procedure, Dr. St. Laurent uses a specially designed device that targets the fat cells in your problem areas. The device delivers cooling that causes fat cells to crystalize and break down. Over time, your body eliminates these dead fat cells and flushes them out of your body.

CoolSculpting is a painless procedure that requires no incisions, no needles, no scarring. You won’t need to take any time off work afterwards, as there is no recovery time needed.

truSculpt 3D

Like CoolSculpting, the truSculpt 3D body-contouring treatment is a nonsurgical, noninvasive technology that targets and eliminates unwanted fat cells. However, truSculpt uses heat rather than cold to banish fat cells. 

During a truSculpt treatment, Dr. St. Laurent uses a handheld device that delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy directly into the stubborn fat cells beneath your skin. RF energy penetrates fat cells and heats them up, which interferes with their ability to function and causes them to die.

Over time, your body eliminates these dead fat cells and flushes them from your body.

Like CoolSculpting, truSculpt is a painless procedure that requires no incisions, needles, anesthesia, or other inconveniences. It is gentle on your skin and causes no scarring.

Get rid of your unwanted fat

CoolSculpting and truSculpt 3D both offer painless ways to eliminate stubborn body fat. After your treatments, you can resume your normal activity immediately without any of the side effects of surgery.

Dr. St. Laurent can work with you to choose the body-contouring procedure that’s best for you. Our team is happy to help you reach your weight loss goals and finish strong with CoolSculpting or truSculpt 3D. To learn more, call our office or book an appointment online today.
