Body Contouring Q & A

What is body contouring?

Body contouring is a treatment for reshaping your body by destroying or removing fat cells. Before examining your options for body contouring, it’s important to note that body contouring isn’t a substitute for healthy and sustainable weight loss. While you won’t lose a significant amount of weight or girth with body contouring, you can refine your curves and give your muscles more definition. 

At Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeons Ltd, Dr. Speace and his team offer several methods of body contouring. The treatments are specifically designed to treat areas of fat that don’t shrink with exercise or a healthy diet, like the fat around your chin, abdomen, or thighs. 

How does body contouring work?

Dr. Speace and his team provide both invasive and noninvasive options for body contouring. They use state-of-the-art equipment and techniques such as:

SmartLipo® Triplex®

SmartLipo is a laser body contouring device by Cynosure®, a leader in the medical aesthetics field. Through a small incision in your targeted area of fat, Dr. Speace inserts a laser fiber. The heat from the laser fiber ruptures your fat cells. Then, Dr. Speace suctions the liquid fat out of the area. The process also stimulates new collagen growth to tighten your skin. 

TruSculpt® 3D

TruSculpt 3D is a noninvasive body contouring treatment that delivers heat to your fat cells via radio waves. The process feels comfortably therapeutic and doesn’t require any recovery time. 


Treatment with SculpSure is Cynosure’s noninvasive body contouring option. During a comfortable 25-minute procedure, the device uses its WarmSculpting™ technology to heat and disable your fat cells with laser light energy.  

Traditional liposuction

Traditional liposuction is a body contouring surgery that Dr. Speace offers to remove your fat cells permanently. He accesses the fat through a small incision and loosens it with an instrument. Then, he suctions the loose fat cells out of your body with a vacuum device. 

What are the results of body contouring?

Body contouring can reduce your body fat in your targeted areas by about 24%. Since fat distribution varies greatly from person to person, body contouring treatments are designed to target almost any area of your body with extra fat. Using the methods listed above, Dr. Speace can reduce fat on your:

  • Face
  • Chin
  • Neck
  • Abdomen
  • Love handles
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Back
  • Breasts
  • Upper arms

After one or more body contouring treatments, you can enjoy a more proportionate figure with less volume in the areas you target.
