Body Contouring Q & A

What is body contouring?

Body contouring is a non-surgical treatment that improves your body shape. Losing weight is hard. And, even after you reach your weight goal, your body may not react the way you expect.

When you lose an excessive amount of weight, for example, you may have excess skin on your neck, stomach, arms, or waist. Or, you may struggle with stubborn pockets of fat.

With body contouring at El Paso Men's Clinic, Dr. Altenberg uses advanced tools to tighten your saggy skin, get rid of the fatty bulges, and improve muscle tone. 

The state-of-the-art clinic also has a body contouring tool specific for tightening and remodeling the facial skin and muscles. 

Am I a candidate for body contouring?

When you visit El Paso Men's Clinic for a body contouring consultation, Dr. Altenberg conducts a comprehensive evaluation to determine if you would benefit from the in-office procedure. Though body contouring can improve your body shape, it’s not a weight-loss treatment.

Dr. Altenberg may consider you a candidate for body contouring if you’re unhappy about the saggy skin after your dramatic weight loss or can’t get rid of your belly fat with diet and exercise. 

Body contouring also benefits mothers looking to tone-up their post-pregnancy body. 

How does body contouring work?

The body contouring tool at El Paso Men's Clinic is an all-in-one device that remodels the skin, targets fatty tissue, and helps tone muscles. The tool offers three body contouring options:

TITE

The TITE body contouring option uses radiofrequency energy to tighten and tone your loose and saggy skin. 

TRIM

With TRIM, Dr. Altenberg uses a thermal energy tool that combines radiofrequency energy with a vacuum to eliminate unwanted pockets of fat. 

TONE

The TONE option triggers involuntary muscle contractions to improve muscle tone and strength. 

What can I expect during body contouring?

Body contouring is an in-office treatment. During your session, Dr. Altenberg places the body contouring device on the target area and starts treatment.

You may feel a tingling sensation, but body contouring is well-tolerated by most patients. You may experience some skin redness following your session, but these side effects disappear within a few hours.

There’s no downtime following body contouring at El Paso Men's Clinic, and you can go back to your usual activities after your session. 

Body contouring treatments take 30 to 60 minutes. To get the best results, Dr. Altenberg recommends weekly sessions for six to eight weeks.
