What is body contouring?
Sometimes, despite our best efforts at eating right and exercising, stubborn fat won’t budge. Since we (unfortunately) can’t determine or direct where fat is stored by our body, excess fat can often result in uneven contours and unwanted bulges, causing us to feel self-conscious or uncomfortable in our favourite fashions. It’s not uncommon to want to reduce fat in certain problem areas, such as the stomach, thighs, buttocks, or back of the arms. Body contouring allows us to target these bothersome areas and reduce fat, without surgery, recovery or anaesthesia.
Why body contouring?
The first step in your journey towards optimal health and ideal body weight should always be a healthy diet and sensible exercise routine. However, there are several factors that could contribute to the storage of excess or unwanted fat despite these efforts. Our metabolism and ability to breakdown dietary fats can slow with age and affect fat storage. Underlying medical conditions such as metabolic and hormonal imbalances can play a part, along with stress, or genetic predisposition. In any of these cases, body contouring treatments may be a recommended solution.
