Celebrities may make it seem easy but achieving the body you desire is not an easy process. It can also be very frustrating when it seems like you aren't making any progress. What can you do if diet and exercise don't work anymore? Our skilled surgeons at UncraveRX know that sometimes, a helping hand can be necessary to achieve your ideal look. We recommend that patients explore the benefits and advantages of body contouring.
Every aspect of life is a process. Body contouring will allow you to achieve your ideal body shape. Many of our patients want to know how long the process takes. Here are some milestones in the treatment process, starting with the first appointment and ending with your recovery.
The first step in the treatment process is to attend the appointments. The area being treated will determine the length of these appointments. Longer appointments are required for areas that have more serious problems. Smaller areas and areas with minor issues will require shorter appointments. The treatment method will also affect the time it takes to complete a procedure. This means that they may take longer.
Patients can expect to be seen for non-surgical treatment in 30-60 minutes. Patients can expect to undergo a two-to four-hour procedure for surgical procedures.
Initial results are those that are visible while you are still recovering. Both surgical and non-surgical treatments will show their first results around six weeks. This means that you should start to see improvements in your appearance within one to two months.
Your final results will be the result of your treatment. Your final results will be the shape of your body after you have fully recovered. Final results typically occur three to six months after treatment, or when you have fully recovered. The time it takes to see the final results will depend on whether you had surgery or not.
How Long Do Results Last?
Both surgical and non-surgical treatments have the potential to last for a long time. This treatment is permanent. After you have recovered, it is important to keep your weight steady and to exercise regularly. Your treatment will last a lifetime if you live a healthy lifestyle.
Do You Need Additional Treatments?
For optimal results, you may need to have at least two or three non-surgical treatments. Non-surgical treatments are cumulative, which means that results from the first treatment may not be apparent until the second. Non-surgical treatments are typically seen once per month. You can expect non-surgical treatments to take between four and six months depending on the number of treatments required to achieve optimal results. The final results may take three additional months.
What Is Recovery Time?
The type of treatment you received will affect the recovery process. The recovery time for contouring surgery takes approximately one to two months. You will need to be able to continue with your normal daily activities, such as exercise, for the next few weeks. Non-surgical treatments require a two to three week recovery time. However, you will not be restricted in your daily activities. The area being treated and the speed at which you respond to treatment may affect the recovery time.
From Start To Finish
This process can take time from the time you make your appointment to the time you receive your final results at the end of your recovery period. The entire process of this treatment, both surgical and non-surgical, will take six to nine months. You can achieve your ideal body in less than a year and have lasting results for well over a decade.
