Body Contouring Q & A

What is body contouring?

Body contouring at Body By Bloch uses various methods to reduce stubborn fat, cellulite, and bulges to give you the slim figure you desire. Dr. Bloch personalizes each body contouring treatment to meet your needs and preferences.

Which body contouring procedures are available?

After reviewing your medical history and examining your body in the areas of concern, Dr. Bloch chooses the body contouring procedure that offers the best results. He might recommend:

Liposuction

Liposuction is a body contouring procedure in which Dr. Bloch removes fat cells using advanced technological procedures. He injects a local anesthetic to numb the treatment area and uses VASER® ultrasound, BodyTite radiofrequency, or laser energy to destroy fat cells. He uses a tiny tube, or cannula, to safely remove unwanted fat with little blood loss.

Fractora and ThermiRF™ 

Fractora and ThermiRF technology use radiofrequency energy to heat and destroy fat cells in specific areas of your body, stimulate collagen production, and tighten the skin to achieve exceptional results with minimal downtime. Your body naturally removes destroyed fat cells over time.

Votiva

Votiva technology helps tighten your intimate areas, including the labia, vulva, and vaginal muscles, to improve sexual sensation and function. Dr. Bloch might suggest FormaV thermal tissue remodeling, FractoraV fractional radiofrequency treatment, or both to help you achieve optimal results.

Body lifts

During a body lift, Dr. Bloch often combines incisions with liposuction near your waistband area. He removes excess skin, tightens abdominal muscles, and lifts the butt to tighten skin on your buttocks, thighs, hips, and abdominal muscles.

Butt lifts

During a butt lift, Dr. Bloch makes an incision underneath your buttocks and removes excess skin and fat. He might use liposuction to smooth body contours and inject fat into your butt to enhance its volume.

Tummy tucks

Body By Bloch offers full and mini tummy tucks to reduce excess skin and fat in your abdominal area. Dr. Bloch can tighten your abdominal wall and muscles to help you achieve the flat, tight tummy you desire. The type of tummy tuck that’s right for you depends on the amount of excess skin or fat you have.

Obalon®

The Obalon balloon system contains swallowable FDA-approved intragastric balloons that facilitate weight loss. You might be a good candidate for the procedure if you’ve failed to lose weight with diet and exercise. No surgery or sedation is required during balloon placement, which usually takes less than 10 minutes. Dr. Bloch removes the balloons after six months.
