Muffin top. Spare tire. Love handles. No matter what you call it, it’s flab. And even if the rest of your body is in good shape, fat and flab around your waist can make you look less attractive and feel less confident.
At Baheri Wellness Center, Mehran Baheri, MD, and his team use the innovative InMode® Contoura body-sculpting system to eliminate unsightly fat bulges around the waist and elsewhere, giving women and men the slim, sleek contours they want — without surgery, incisions, or anesthesia. Here’s how InMode Contoura treatment can help you.
The problem with love handles
Most of us — even those of us who are otherwise slim — tend to accumulate excess fat around our midsections. And while some of that fat can be shed through diet and exercise, often, fat around the sides of the waist tends to stick around.
Yes, overeating is one possible cause of love handles. Being sedentary is another. But that’s not the whole story. Our age, hormone fluctuations, and even our genetics can make us more prone to that “jiggle in the middle.”
For a long time, liposuction was the only real way to get rid of love handles once and for all, especially for people who are predisposed to waistline weight gain. But liposuction is invasive — it uses incisions and anesthesia, and that means it also comes with certain risks. On top of that, it’s costly, and the recovery time can be considerable.
During the past decade or so, noninvasive body sculpting (or body contouring) has become a popular alternative to liposuction, melting away stubborn fat without the need for invasive surgery. In fact, in recent years, about 400,000 noninvasive body-sculpting treatments have been performed annually in the United States. InMode Contoura is popular among men and women, thanks to its consistent and predictable results.
How InMode Contoura works
InMode Contoura uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to destroy stubborn love handles. Contoura’s BodyFX® system emits focused waves of energy that painlessly penetrate the skin to target and destroy fat cells in the deeper tissue layers around your waist. The resulting debris is carried off and eliminated naturally by your body — with no incisions, no suction, no scars, and no risk of infection.
But there’s more: The warm RF energy emitted during a BodyFX treatment helps tighten and firm the overlying skin to prevent sagging and laxity that can occur after fat tissue is destroyed. The result: contours that are slimmer, smoother, and sexier.
After your treatment, there’s no prolonged downtime to worry about. You can resume most of your activities right away.
You’ll start seeing results within just a few weeks, once your body’s waste-disposal system starts carting away the fatty debris, revealing your sleek contours underneath. Plus, those targeted fat cells are gone for good.
