Very few people are knowledgeable about body sculpting treatments until they start considering one for themselves. If you’re thinking about becoming a body sculpting patient, it’s natural to want to know everything about what the procedure entails, and just as importantly, to know how to get the best results.

“Should I lose weight before liposuction,” “body contouring,” or whatever your preferred method of body enhancement happens to be? It’s a common question, and you may be relieved to hear the simplified answer: “No.” We’re happy to explain why losing weight before HD Body Sculpting is unnecessary, why you shouldn’t wait to pull the trigger on scheduling a treatment, and how your procedure will continue to have a positive impact on your weight long after your appointment.

You Don’t Need to Lose Weight Before Body Sculpting

Belle Medical treats patients of all body types—chances are good that we’ve successfully treated many people who are both thinner and heavier than you are right now. Even those who would be considered obese can benefit from “debulking” through HD Body Sculpting. Whatever your current weight, you’re guaranteed to lose 2-5” minimum from a body sculpting procedure.

Even though you don’t need to lose weight before an HD Body Sculpting treatment to get excellent results, your weight does need to be stable. If you’re experiencing unhealthy weight fluctuations, a procedure may be ineffective. Please discuss fluctuating weight with our team during your free consultation so they can determine whether you’re ready for a procedure.

Don’t Put Off Your Procedure!

Not losing weight before an HD Body Sculpting procedure isn’t just a matter of dedication—in many cases, you physically can’t reduce your size in the problem areas you’re hoping to treat. If working the weight off through diet and exercise made a significant enough impact, you probably wouldn’t need body sculpting to begin with. Most of our patients use HD Body Sculpting to get rid of the stubborn hormonal fat that has nothing to do with their lifestyle choices. Since another month at the gym won’t make a difference, there’s no reason to delay your procedure.

Weight Control Is Easier After Body Sculpting

Another reason why you don’t need to lose weight before HD Body Sculpting is because maintaining your ideal figure is so much easier afterward. For almost all of our patients, a procedure is a launching pad for a healthier lifestyle, for both mental and physical reasons. Those who are in excellent shape thanks to their treatments, following a long period of dissatisfaction with their bodies, have more motivation to maintain their new look by exercising regularly and watching what they eat.

You’ll also have an improved metabolism to go along with your new mental resolve. Body sculpting does more than change your outward appearance—it alters your whole body chemistry for the better. During your procedure, we’ll remove the fat cells that are less effective at converting stored fat into energy and leave behind the cells that are high in leptin, a hormone that both inhibits your appetite and promotes fat metabolization. Having a greater concentration of leptin after your problematic fat cells have been removed will help your body burn fat more effectively, and will hopefully keep you from heading to the kitchen more often than you need to.
