Body Sculpting Q&A

What is body sculpting?

Body sculpting refers to procedures that minimize pockets of fat. At My True Image, the team offers noninvasive body sculpting to remove fat without surgery, needles, incisions, or extensive downtime. Most people can resume their normal activities immediately after their treatment. 

Are there different types of body sculpting?

There are three main types of nonsurgical body sculpting:


Cryolipolysis is a fat-freezing treatment to reduce areas of fat. The treatment uses extremely low temperatures to freeze fat cells, causing them to collapse. The lymphatic system then removes the fat cells from your body.

Laser treatments

Laser treatments heat fat cells to break their stability. Like cryolipolysis, once the fat cells break down, the lymphatic system naturally removes them.

Radiofrequency treatments

Radiofrequency treatments use radiofrequency (RF) energy to target specific fat cells, reducing their size. RF energy can simultaneously treat fat cells and tighten loose skin.

After discussing your cosmetic goals, reviewing your medical history, and performing a physical exam, the team can recommend the right body sculpting treatment for you.

Who is a candidate for body sculpting?

Body sculpting is an effective treatment for men and women with stubborn areas of fat. Candidates for body sculpting typically:

  • Are in good overall health
  • Don’t have underlying medical conditions
  • Avoid smoking cigarettes
  • Have a body mass index (BMI) under 30
  • Follow a healthy diet
  • Exercise regularly

Nonsurgical body sculpting is not a weight-loss treatment. These procedures can help eliminate fat cells, but they do not help you lose weight. For patients who struggle with obesity, the My True Image team offers medical weight loss under doctor supervision.

What can I expect from body sculpting?

Body sculpting treatments typically take between 30 minutes and one hour. Most treatments are comfortable and involve little to no downtime. Depending on your treatment, your skin may be red, tender, or swollen for a few hours afterward. 

How long do body sculpting results last?

Body sculpting results can be permanent with proper diet and exercise. Once your fat cells are gone, they can’t return, but new ones can take their place. Maintaining a healthy weight is the best way to extend your results.
