4 Benefits of Body Contouring Treatments After Weight Loss
Losing weight is one of life’s toughest challenges, but you did it! Sadly, you still have bulges that won’t budge. We’ve got you covered with truSculpt® body contouring. You’ve done the hard work — let truSculpt finish the job.

If you’ve been on a weight loss journey and nearly reached your goal, you’ve accomplished one of life’s most challenging feats. It takes determination, education, self-awareness, cardiovascular exercise, strength training, sacrifice, and a lot of time. So, we understand if you’ve reached this point in the process only to learn that you have stubborn pockets of fat that won’t go away no matter what you try.

You’re not alone — and you’re in luck!

Woodland Aesthetics Center in The Woodlands, Texas, offers specialized treatment for this problem. It’s called truSculpt®, a dream come true for anyone with just a few more pounds to lose and a few bulges to smooth out.

Read what Ashley Cook, WHNP-BC, our experienced nurse practitioner, says about truScuplt body contouring and its main benefits for people who have recently dropped a significant amount of weight.

The science behind truSculpt technology

If you're looking to get rid of the last remaining pockets of stubborn fat after weight loss, truSculpt iD may be your answer. This advanced, FDA-cleared technology uses monopolar radiofrequency (RF)-focused hyperthermia to achieve lipolysis.

That means it gently heats up the fat cells under your skin and destroys them. It works through a series of handpieces that increase your fat temperature by more than 10 degrees, targeting pockets of localized fat and permanently eliminating up to 24% of cells in each 15-60-minute session. 

What's great about truSculpt iD is its flexibility — it can be used on people with BMIs above 30, non-pinchable fat, skin with laxity, and even over tattoos — although it’s not intended as a weight loss treatment. Instead, it’s a finishing treatment for people who have lost considerable weight and still have loose skin, minor bulges, and untoned muscles.

Plus, it feels like a hot stone massage without any downtime.

Advantages of body contouring after weight loss

You didn’t put in all that work and sacrifice only to stop just shy of your weight loss goal. It doesn’t seem fair that you could come so far and still be dissatisfied with your body image. Here are four top takeaways when you use truSculpt body contouring after losing weight.

1. Banishes final pockets of fat

Genetics, age, hormones, and gender play significant roles in your ability to lose weight. You can’t dictate where fat shrinks on your body when you diet and exercise, nor can you predict where certain pockets will hang around. But that’s okay, because truSculpt comes in after you’ve done all you can and finishes the job by zapping those fat cells and rendering them useless for good.

2. Smoothes out your contours

Even after most of your excess pounds are history, your silhouette may not be all you dreamed it would be. We understand how it feels to reach the right size but still feel self-conscious about your body in a swimsuit — or naked.

Ashley Cook identifies the areas that throw your shape off-kilter and uses the truSculpt body contouring device to shrink the underlying fat and smooth out your body lines. We can even improve the look of stubborn cellulite.

3. Defines muscle tone

One of the best things about losing fat is that you can finally see the underlying muscles. But if yours aren’t as toned as you’d like them to be, truSculpt flex takes care of that, too. This device uses multidirectional stimulation to flex your muscles for you, enabling us to target deep muscle groups and cause contractions that rapidly build muscle tissue. 

4. Painless and noninvasive

Changes like these used to require surgery, along with its significant risks and downtime, but truSculpt is safe, noninvasive, painless, and quick — you’re in and out of our office in less than an hour. 

And when your session is over, you can go straight back to work, school, or anywhere else on your list because there’s no recovery period required.
