Body Contouring Q & A

How Does Body Contouring Work?

If you’ve recently lost a significant amount of weight, or if you simply have pesky areas of fat that won’t go away with diet and exercise, body contouring can reduce the amount of fat or excess skin in certain areas to give you a slimmer or tighter look. In general, body contouring works by killing fat cells that are eventually reabsorbed and excreted by your body naturally. The process takes roughly 12 weeks after the treatment, at which point you’ll be able to see a difference in the amount of fat in the targeted area.

What are My Body Contouring Options?

Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness offers two body contouring treatment options, and your provider helps you choose which may work best to achieve your goals.

  • CoolSculpting: CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared body contouring method that uses controlled cooling to freeze and kill fat cells. Before the procedure, you consult with your provider to target certain stubborn pockets of fat on your body that aren’t likely to go away, even with proper diet and exercise. Depending on the amount of fat, you may need to schedule multiple CoolSculpting sessions to achieve your desired appearance.
  • TruSculpt 3D: TruSculpt 3D is a body contouring method that uses monopolar radiofrequency to kill unwanted fat cells in targeted areas. The treatment is noninvasive and takes as little as 15 minutes, but you might need to make multiple appointments depending on how much fat you’re trying to eliminate. On average, you’ll see a 24% reduction with each treatment.


Am I A Good Candidate for Body Contouring?

Even if you’ve lost a significant amount of weight, you may not be eligible for body contouring surgery. You may be a good candidate if:

  • You don’t smoke
  • You’re optimistic
  • You have realistic goals
  • You’re committed to healthy eating and exercise
  • You’re in good health


Your provider at Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness evaluates you to make sure that body contouring is a safe and viable option for you. If you’re a good candidate, your provider helps you choose the method that’s best for your goals.

If you’ve recently lost a significant amount of weight but struggle with the remaining excess skin and fat, call or schedule an appointment online with Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness to see if body contouring aligns with your goals.
