In the past, the best options for body sculpting procedures were surgical procedures. A tummy tuck and liposuction were common procedures for people looking for help with tightening and toning their abdominal areas. Now, minimally-invasive treatment options provide an alternative for patients in Portland who wish to improve their body’s shape without the risks and downtime of surgery. The team at Aesthetic Medicine is committed to providing our clients with the best possible treatment options to help them look and feel their best, without long recovery times associated with open surgery.
Minimally-invasive medical procedures use specially designed surgical instruments to achieve excellent results without open surgery. Through these tools, Dr. Darm can reduce the amount of fat in your body without harsh surgical techniques. This provides similar results to a surgical procedure, but with much less risk to you.
For patients considering body sculpting, we use one of two technologies to reduce fat deposits. These are:
At Aesthetic Medicine, our body sculpting services start with a consultation. At the consultation, we will help you understand what you can expect from the procedure and which of our two treatment options would work best to help you achieve your goals. Your consultant will evaluate your problem areas to see if you are a good candidate for these procedures.
If body sculpting seems to fit your needs well, we will then perform a thorough health history to ensure that you are healthy enough for the procedure. If you are, we will take your before photos and measurements, and then schedule the appointment for your procedure.
When you come for your body sculpting procedure, our staff will help you feel comfortable. We may recommend an oral sedative to help you relax, but you will feel no pain during the procedure.
Because this is a minimally-invasive procedure, you will return home the same day. Plan about one day of rest, and use compression garments for three weeks.
In the first few days after your procedure, expect to see a little swelling and some bruising of the treated area. After about one month, you will start seeing your body change. Full results are typically visible three months after your procedure. We will schedule a follow-up appointment to track your healing and document your results.
