If none of your efforts at home or in the gym have led to the great-looking body you’re hoping for, body sculpting could be the answer. This permanent fat removal procedure is an effective way to reshape your body with amazing results.

Of course, before you consider any cosmetic treatment, it’s important to do some research. You’ll need to know what a procedure costs and how it might affect your health, but you also want to be sure the outcome will be worth it. We strongly recommend taking the time to look at before and after photos when choosing a provider.

Every practitioner has their own style, technique, and idea of what an attractive body looks like. Looking at before and after body sculpting pictures is the best way to make sure a provider’s capabilities align with the look you want, but most people unfamiliar with cosmetic procedures don’t have the best idea of what to keep an eye out for during their search. Here are a few things you should think about:

Bare Skin
People go through body sculpting because they want to look better without clothes on, but not every provider is willing to show after pictures that bare it all. This isn’t necessarily to be tasteful or protect a patient’s privacy—they could also be trying to cover up burning and scarring caused by their treatment methods. A provider who isn’t shy about sharing after photos without clothing is more likely to complete your procedure without leaving any marks.

Symmetry and Proportion
The most appealing body shapes are symmetrical and proportional all over. Look for after photos that show even, balanced figures.

Natural Results
Cosmetic surgery shouldn’t make you look like a Barbie or Ken doll. It should turn you into a leaner, healthier version of your natural self. Look for after photos that show excellent results without making the subject look more plastic than person.

People Built like You
Cosmetic procedures can improve your body, but they can’t give you an entirely new one. People with a bigger size can absolutely benefit from losing stubborn areas of fat, but they may never be exactly petite, and that’s okay. Look for before pictures of people whose body shape resembles yours to set the most realistic expectations for your results.

There are many ways to make before and after photos look better than they really are. Some providers only show you the best-looking patients and touch up the after photos. These pictures can be deceptive. You’re a real person, not a supermodel. Don’t trust body fat removal or transfer after pictures that look like they’re straight out of Vogue.
