Non-Surgical Body Contouring

Non-Surgical Body Contouring at LA Plastic Surgery and LA Skin Spa, is the latest, safest and most effective techniques for non-surgical body contouring. These include cosmetic procedures that aim to reshape and improve the appearance of the body without the need for invasive surgery. These treatments are designed to reduce unwanted fat, tighten skin, and contour specific areas of the body, such as the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, arms, and chin. In addition, volume can be added to certain areas such as the hips and the buttocks to enhance overall curves. Non-surgical body contouring methods involve no downtime and fewer risks compared to surgical options. Common Non-Surgical Body Contouring Procedures:

Benefits and Considerations


•Minimal to no downtime

•Non-invasive, which reduces the risks associated with surgical procedures.

•Gradual and natural-looking results


•Results may vary depending on the individual and the area being treated.

•Multiple sessions may be required to achieve desired results.

•These treatments are generally best suited for individuals close to their ideal body weight with localized areas of fat.

•Non-surgical body contouring treatments can provide noticeable improvements but MAY NOT  produce results as dramatic as surgical options like liposuction, face and necklift, abdominoplasty, arm lift, thigh lift or a traditional surgical Brazilian butt lift

•Maintaining a healthy lifestyle with proper diet and exercise is important to sustain the results.

Volume Reduction

1. Chemical Lipolysis: Deoxycholic Acid is an FDA approved substance that dissolves fat when injected into unwanted pockets of excess fat, such as the jowls, chin, arms, abdomen, thighs and back. Several treatment sessions maybe required, depending on the amount of excess fat to be contoured. Temporary swelling may occur and can last about a week.

2.Cavitation: A gentle external ultrasound and radiofrequency (RF) is applied over the tissue to heat the skin and underlying fat, destroying the fat cells, promoting collagen production and some tissue tightening. Several treatments may be required, and works very well with the above injection treatments.

Endoluxx: An external rolling handpiece causes mechanical fat cell lysis and improvement in the appearance of cellulite; also works well in conjunction with deoxycholic injections and cavitation.

VIVACE Radiofrequency Microneedling : the combination of microneedling and radiofrequency allows for deeper penetration of the RF energy deeper into the dermis and hypodermics to produce collagen and produce tissue tightening. Higher treatment energies can also cause localized fat loss.

5. Electromagnetic Muscle Stimulation (EMS): •Uses electromagnetic energy to induce muscle contractions (similar to those that occur during exercise), leading to increased muscle tone and fat reduction. Several treatments may be required.

Volume Enhancement

Non-Surgical BBL: Our exclusive treatment protocol utilizes cupping therapy (to prepare the tissue for volume enhancement and improves blood flow to the area), EMS therapy to improve the gluteal muscle tone, PRP (to improve collagen synthesis) and Sculptra injections for volume enhancement of the hips and thighs; several treatments may be required. There is minimal discomfort during the treatments, no downtime, and the results can be immediate and may last up to three years, without the risks or downtime associated with surgical procedures.

Overall, non-surgical body contouring offers a variety of options for individuals seeking to enhance their body shape with minimal invasiveness and downtime. It’s essential to consult with our Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeons  to determine the most appropriate treatment based on specific goals and needs.
