Body Contouring Q & A

What is body contouring?

Body contouring is a type of treatment with a goal of slimming you down and refining your curves. 

While many body contouring treatments reduce fat by killing your fat cells, you should not get body contouring treatments if you are still far from your weight goal. Instead, you can get the treatment if you’re at or near your ideal weight and want to make your body a more appealing shape. 

In general, body contouring treatments yield permanent results as long as you continue practicing healthy habits like nutritious eating and frequent exercise. Some primarily work to tighten your skin while others reduce fat. 

What are my body contouring options?

At Parkland Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Stephens offers several body contouring options that you choose depending on your goals, including:


Kybella is a body contouring drug that comes in the form of an injection. It’s specialized to reduce fat under your chin that causes you to look older or heavier than you are. It’s the only treatment available that specifically targets double chin fat.


EMSculpt is a unique body contouring treatment in that it works to build muscle while helping you shed hard-to-lose fat. The device essentially gives your muscles a rigorous workout without you having to move on your own accord. 

Dr. Stephens also offers laser skin tightening and body contouring treatments to sculpt your body into your desired silhouette.

What parts of my body can I target with body contouring treatments?

In general, you can target nearly any part of your body that holds excess fat or loose skin with body contouring procedures. 

Even if you exercise multiple times per week and monitor your diet closely, some pockets of fat are pesky and stay in place. Common areas for body contouring include:

  • Double chin
  • Abdomen
  • Love handles
  • Back
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs

If you’ve recently lost a lot of weight, you likely have unexpected areas of excess skin that hang off your body and prevent you from fully enjoying the results of your weight loss. Body contouring treatments can tighten this skin so you can better view your new figure.
