Non-Surgical Body Contouring Rehoboth Beach


Nonsurgical options for body contouring include technology that uses heat, cooling, ultrasound, electromagnetic energy, placement of threads or an injected medication to either reduce fat, firm or tighten loose sagging skin, treat cellulite or tone muscles.

While none of these nonsurgical treatments are a replacement for liposuction and other cosmetic surgeries, they provide many options to choose from for patients unwilling or unable to undergo surgery. Since patient demand for rejuvenation of the body continues to grow at an exponential rate, the emergence and availability of so many nonsurgical body rejuvenation devices makes it difficult and somewhat confusing for the patient to make an informed decision of what procedure to choose.

These nonsurgical devices use technology that delivers some form of energy source to your body’s tissues to either target your fat cells (adipocytes), collagen or elastin fibers (skin) or muscle fibers. The goal is to either 1. reduce fat deposits 2. tighten loose skin 3. improve cellulite (combination fat deposits and loose skin) 4. build up muscle. The only downside to these nonsurgical body contouring devices is they do not achieve results similar to the more invasive surgical procedures. These nonsurgical treatments are designed to achieve up to 25-30% of surgical outcomes and these results are not always predictable and cannot be guaranteed. However, the ability to combine multiple different technologies and devices on the same treatment area may produce overall better outcomes.

These nonsurgical body contouring procedures are designed for patients who are unwilling or unable to undergo invasive cosmetic surgeries and are willing to accept a lesser final outcome that is still noticeable to them in either overall appearance or wearing clothing to achieve patient satisfaction. Although nonsurgical body contouring are not as predictable or profound in results, when properly selected, good candidates will achieve natural and noticeable rejuvenating results.

Another advantage of nonsurgical body contouring treatments is its versatility to treat so many problem areas of the body without scars, risks or downtime. These areas include belly roll, others areas stomach, love handles, bra rolls, bra fat, under arms, inner thighs, saddle bags, banana rolls, inner knees, cellulite thighs and buttocks, flat buttocks and more.

The approach to choose a particular nonsurgical treatment for body contouring should be exercised in a similar manner when compared to cosmetic surgeries

My whole life I had a vision of what I wanted my body to look like. Pre-children and even after delivering 3 babies which included twins. I would go to the gym and work hard with no avail. I finally made an appointment with Dr. Chang. After spending 2 hours with me for my “free” consultation I knew that Dr. Chang understood my expectations and wants. Dr. Chang exceeded my expectations. Very thankful!! Highly recommended!!

    • Nouveau Medispa offers the most comprehensive collection of nonsurgical body contouring devices in the Delaware Valley region. The unique advantage of offering many different options of devices with different forms of energy sources is the ability to create a customized treatment plan for each patient. Every patient is different in their body form with respect to amount and type of fat cells (“soft fluffy”, “medium” or “hard fat”); amount of loose skin, skin quality and thickness and distribution of fat deposits (localized love handles, belly rolls, saddle bags, bra fat etc… or diffuse fat all over the stomach). Having to treat so many patients of different sizes, shapes, skin and fat types is the main reason to have many different nonsurgical body contouring devices with different energy sources to treat many different tissue types. The distinct advantage of invasive cosmetic surgeries is the ability to aggressively treat all different patients with different tissue types with predictable, impressive and long lasting results.
