Here’s how you can reach your body goals this summer

summer body goals

We are all ready to get back to the beach and have a great summer in 2021 after a long, hard summer in 2020. While it is exciting to finally be able to go out and socialize, we are all too familiar with the weight gained by quarantine. There are no better or worse bodies, but body sculpting procedures like CoolSculpting and Brazilian buttlifts are becoming more and more popular. What makes these treatments so appealing? Does CoolSculpting cost a lot? And what other techniques are there to sculpt your body? 

Below is what we learned from speaking with Dr. Schwarzburg at Skinly Aesthetics about this topic.

In the past, breast implants and liposuction have been used as body sculpting treatments. It was not until a few years after that people started getting butt implants and finally injectable butt fillers. Despite the fact that implants and fillers add volume to certain areas of the body, there are also a number of treatments that decrease volume (in other words, eliminate fat) in certain areas, such as liposuction and CoolSculpting. 

Liposuction and CoolSculpting differ mainly in the fact that CoolSculpting is a non-invasive alternative to liposuction. In contrast to liposuction, CoolSculpting requires no pain and no downtime. Only minimal bruising, swelling, tenderness, and numbness may result from the procedure. Aside from CoolSculpting, there are also some minimally invasive procedures that can reduce fat in small areas, such as Kybella. Basically, Kybella is an injectable solution that destroys fat cells and eliminates them permanently.

Additionally, there are both surgical and non-surgical versions of butt enhancements. Surgically implanting butt implants beneath the muscle leaves you with a larger backside. An Brazilian butt lift (or BBL) involves fat being harvested from another part of your body, injected into your butt, and then transformed into more volume and projection. Usually, fat is harvested from the abdomen, back, arms, or legs. While this procedure is less invasive than a butt implant, liposuction is still required to remove fat from the body. A minimally invasive alternative to the aforementioned butt lift procedures is the Sculptra butt lift. This injectable increases volume by stimulating collagen production in the treatment area, thereby causing the area to grow over the course of two to three months.

In other words, why do people receive these treatments and what are the risks?

Popular body sculpting treatments have a variety of benefits. A lot of people want to lose fat in order to get in shape, others some need to do it for health reasons, and some cannot get rid of excess fat naturally and turn to procedures which include liposuction and CoolSculpting. With other body contouring procedures such as butt implants and injections, the reasons range from wanting more volume and projection to filling in hip dips.

Risques and side effects vary depending on the procedure. Invasive and surgical treatments, such as liposuction, implants, Brazilian buttlifts, and fat grafting, can carry greater risks and side effects, including infection, bruising, swelling, granuloma formation, and blood clots. A minimally invasive and noninvasive procedure like Sculptra and CoolSculpting comes with fewer side effects and risks. Bruising, swelling, numbness, and itching can occur after CoolSculpting treatments. The results you achieve from any of these treatments will depend on your body and what you want to accomplish. Speaking with a professional about the best option is important since not everyone is a good candidate for all of these procedures.

Final thoughts:

The fact that we have so many options to achieve our body goals, whether they are to lose weight or to add volume to certain areas, is amazing. As the huge bootie trend has blown up on social media and in pop culture, there is a huge push toward body positivity and self acceptance. Frequently, celebrities and influencers post flawless photos of themselves online, flaunting their perfect figures, then posting a non-edited photo the next day to promote body positivity and to keep their followers reminded that not everything you see on the internet is real. Maybe body positivity also entails getting the work done (if that’s what you want), because we can decide what we want to look like and what makes us feel confident. The cosmetic procedure market is forecasted to continue growing over the next few years, according to statistics. When getting cosmetic treatments, the most important thing to remember is to find a professional with experience who will help you reach your goals.
