Body Contouring Q & A


What does body contouring do?

Body contouring with Venus Legacy improves the shape and tone of your figure without incisions, anesthesia, or downtime for recovery.

With age, your body naturally starts producing less collagen and storing more fat. This can lead to several signs of aging, such as:

  • Wrinkles
  • Love handles
  • Muffin tops
  • Cellulite
  • Droopy skin

If you suffer from any of these problems, Dr. Patel can help with quick and painless Venus Legacy body contouring treatments that fit right into your lunch break.

How does the Venus Legacy work?

Venus Legacy delivers heat energy that penetrates deep beneath your skin’s surface. The heat naturally stimulates your body to produce more collagen and elastin, the cells responsible for keeping your skin firm, tight, and youthful-looking.

Venus Legacy also reduces the volume of your fat cells, leaving you with a slimmer, more sculpted body and dramatically reduced cellulite.

Who is a good candidate for body contouring?

Body contouring with Venus Legacy may be right for you if you want to reduce the appearance of these problems without surgery:

  • Stubborn pockets of fat that resist diet and exercise
  • Cellulite
  • Loose, saggy skin

This treatment isn’t right for everyone. The best way to find out if you’re a good candidate for body contouring is to discuss your concerns, goals, and medical history with Dr. Patel.

What should I expect from a body contouring treatment?

First, Dr. Patel evaluates your condition with a physical exam and review of your medical history. If you pursue Venus Legacy treatments, he creates a customized plan that addresses your personal goals.

The number of treatments you need depends on your unique situation, but most people require six to eight treatments spaced one week apart. Most treatments last about 15-30 minutes and don’t require downtime for recovery, making it easy to schedule during your lunch break.

Treatments aren’t painful, but you may feel a warming sensation and gentle suction while the device works. If it gets too hot, just let Dr. Patel know.

Afterward, you should feel warm and relaxed, but otherwise ready to go about your day. Since results are cumulative, it may take up to three to four months to see ideal improvement.
