Body contouring is quickly gaining traction as a popular plastic surgery technique in America. Here at The Skin Rejuvenation Clinic, a premier resource for body contouring and cool sculpting in Minneapolis, our clients love these non-invasive procedures and how they have the ability to immediately see results in terms of fat loss and skin rejuvenation. Since these techniques are becoming so popular, there have been myths and misconceptions arise. Today we’re going to debunk some of the most common myths associated with body contouring.

  • It’s painful. Actually, in most cases body contouring is not painful. Today’s technology offers us a variety of options that feature little to no pain. An example of this is our Cool Sculpting procedures. Cool Scultping is a non-invasive procedure that utilizes accurate and precision-controlled cooling technology to target, chill, and eliminate fat cells by way of a gradual and natural process that won’t cause damage to any surrounding skin and tissue.
  • Body contouring will stop weight gain and prevent it. It’s very important to keep in mind that any procedure that’s labeled as body contouring does not prevent you from gaining weight back after the procedure. Body contouring focuses on redefining and reshaping your body, creating a slimmer silhouette.
  • The results are temporary. The results of body contouring vary from patient to patient and hugely depend on lifestyles factors like diet and exercise. Just as fad diets typically yield only temporary weight loss, patients who fail to change how they eat and exercise will see only temporary results.
