Body Contouring Q & A

How does body contouring work?

Body contouring involves using safe and effective laser energy to destroy fat cells. The laser energy forces fat cells to heat up, which disrupts their structure and causes them to break down.

Modern body contouring treatment methods vary slightly based on your specific procedure. At Parkway Medical, your options are:


SculpSure is entirely noninvasive and delivers laser heat energy through your skin. Once the fat cells break apart, your lymphatic system flushes them out. Results won’t happen overnight, rather, they disappear over the following few weeks as your body gets rid of the destroyed fat. You gradually start to notice a firmer physique.

Smartlipo™ by Cynosure®

Smartlipo also utilizes laser heat energy, but the procedure is minimally invasive. Using local anesthesia, your practitioner makes a very small incision and inserts Smartlipo’s specialized laser fiber. Because fat cells are targeted directly, they start melting on the spot.

Destroyed fat is simply suctioned out at the end of your procedure. What makes Smartlipo particularly unique is that the laser energy simultaneously helps stimulate tissue coagulation, so over the following weeks, your treatment area continues to get tighter.

Is body contouring permanent?

Yes! The beauty of non- and minimally invasive body contouring solutions offered at Parkway Medical is that once that broken down fat is gone, it’s gone for good. Because the potential of future weight gain is possible, your dedicated body sculpting specialist can work with you on dietary and exercise lifestyle changes to ensure your results last a lifetime.

Am I a candidate for body contouring?

Body contouring offered at Parkway Medical isn’t a weight loss regimen. Instead, treatments are designed more for men and women who’ve been working hard on their diet and exercise plan and still have those stubborn spots that just won’t resolve.

If you’re close to a healthy body mass index (BMI), or about 20 pounds from your goal weight, body contouring may be right for you. Your practitioner evaluates your overall health and body goals to help you determine which type of body contouring solution is right for you, as well as how many treatments you may need.
