Board-certified medical doctor, Dr. Melanie Carreon, founder of LCS Medical Spa in Seguin, TX, provides specialized body contouring procedures like EMSCULPT, Vanquish ME, CoolSculpting, and SmartLipo to help her patients further contour their body when efforts of eating right and hours at the gym don’t seem to get any results.

Let’s take a look at how you can get your abs to pop without surgery and how Dr. Carreon can help.

Ideal for who?

Men and women who want a flatter, smoother-looking midsection can turn to liposuction under local anesthesia for help. However, if you are a healthy, fit individual who needs just a little extra help to get those chiseled abs, there are several cosmetic options that do not require surgery or any downtime for certain patients. Patients that get the best results from techniques like Vanquish ME, CoolSculpting or EMSCULPT are men and women who are physically fit but are struggling to get abdominal definition in their midsection. Ideal candidates are healthy, in good shape, and have a low BMI (body mass index). A consultation with Dr. Carreon at LCS Medical Spa in Seguin, TX can determine if you are a likely candidate to possibly get amazing results from these types of noninvasive treatments.

Who wouldn’t want better looking abs?

You have worked hard in the gym and slimmed down to have a more fit, toned body but you just can’t get your midsection to look like you want. Thanks to today’s modern cosmetic procedures, more options are available for men and women who want to get a little help further contouring their body after efforts of working out and eating right may have stalled. Nonsurgical body contouring treatments are on the rise in popularity because both men and women are getting noticeable results without invasive surgery and they require them to take very little or no downtime from work and daily activities.

Body contouring options for the abdominal area

Treatments like SmartLipo, Vanquish ME, CoolSculpting, and EMSCULPT are four nonsurgical options offered by LCS Medical Spa to men and women in Seguin, San Marcos, New Braunfels, San Antonio, Austin, and Houston, that can help you reach your final contouring goals. If you are wanting more ab definition, these body contouring options may be the right solution for you.

? SmartLipo is an alternative form of liposuction that features tiny incisions in the target area in order to use a laser to melt and breakdown the fat. The cannula instrument is much smaller than traditional liposuction. The triple-wave laser device is inserted into the targeted fat cells and delivers thermal energy to diminish stubborn fat while increasing collagen production. Only small scabs are left behind that will heal in 7-10 days. Skin is left firmer and tighter, and possibly exposing more abdominal muscles, giving patients the possibility of chiseled look they wanted.

? EMSCULPT is another technique in the cosmetic world that is getting a bunch of buzz as a noninvasive way for women and men to get a more sculpted midsection. EMSCULPT does all the work by using high-intensity magnetic energy to create intense muscle contractions that stimulate the target area. It is like doing thousands of sit-ups in one 30-minute session. As the underlying ab muscles contract with the EMSCULPT device, it creates muscle mass and more definition. Patients are left with a more toned and defined look to their abdominal area while getting a little painless cosmetic help in the process.

? One of the first noninvasive cosmetic body sculpting techniques is CoolSculpting. Since its FDA approval in 2010, it has been giving both women and men great results. Able to freeze away fat in several different target areas, it is widely used to further contour patients’ abdominal area, giving them visible results. The CoolSculpting device delivers a controlled cooling agent that effectively targets fat cells that reside just underneath the skin in the abs. The treated fat cells are essentially frozen then turn to liquid. In a few short weeks, the dead fat cells will be naturally absorbed by the patient’s body, leaving them with a more sculpted, contoured midsection.

? BTL Vanquish Me is the latest noninvasive BTL body contouring treatment, that utilizes a non-contact technique to target fat cells in the abdomen and thighs. The specialized application of heat disrupts the fat cells, which leads to a diminished shape and circumference of the abdomen, arms and/or thighs. With Vanquish ME, the BMI of under 30 is not necessary like other non surgical treatments.
