When somebody comes to me and they wanna re-contour a part of themselves, very often what we really talk about is getting rid of the fat. Getting rid of the fat is not getting rid of the fat. That's really the issue of what do you want and what are you willing to endure to get that look that you're after.

If somebody comes in and says, "I have just a little bit of fat that hangs over my pants. I don't like it. It's a muffin top. It looks gross," and they really aren't that concerned about other things, I usually go with a non-invasive variety. The thing that I like very well is CoolSculpting by Zeltiq.

We've had our unit for about six months now. We're having tremendous results. I've had it done on myself because there's no way that I'm gonna take the time necessary to undergo a surgical procedure. I don't like the idea of being cut. I don't like the idea of having dressings on. To me, that would be a hassle. It would mean time, which is something I don't have that much of. CoolSculpting is perfect for that. It will be just a little bit of contouring and adjust a few subtle changes. That's ideal.

If you're talking about somebody who really wants to look ripped, if you're really talking about putting in a six pack, creating different lines, creating shadows, creating something that's very special in terms of their body, whether it's their abdomen, their back, their thighs, you name it. There we start going into the areas of high definition lipo sculpture. That's where we have to get very, very particular about what we're trying to do. We all have an image of what the body is supposed to look like. We know what it's supposed to be. We see it in body builders. We see it on some of the particularly attractive people. The idea is to uncover that beauty.

Body contouring is a term that encompasses a group of machines and techniques aimed at sculpting and chiseling a patient's body in a very precise, targeted manner. This is a great alternative to such invasive procedures as liposuction.
