If you have stubborn fat that seems to resist all of your efforts to shed it, you may want to try body contouring to get that shape you want. At Bayview General Medicine & Aesthetics in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Dr. Richard Blanchar has the latest equipment for body contouring and he’ll work with you to achieve your ideal shape.
Body contouring is not weight loss, but a fat reduction process. The amount of fat cells in your body is a fixed number. That means that when you gain weight, you haven’t added fat cells to your body, rather your existing fat cells have increased in size. The same holds true when you lose weight. Here, again, your fat cell count stays the same — they just shrink in size.
In fat reduction, the goal is to reduce the overall number of fat cells in your body. Consider fat reduction as a way to contour your body for a slimmer look, rather than as a weight-loss program.
If you have problem areas that never seem to go away, even despite extensive dieting and exercise, body contouring may be the solution for you. Body contouring goes after stubborn fat by reducing the number of fat cells in the targeted area helping you achieve the shape you want.
