Body contouring, patient selection & managing expectations
It’s important to note that body contouring devices are not a substitute for weight loss, and are not intended for individuals who are significantly overweight.
These devices are best suited for patients who are at, or near, their ideal body weight but have stubborn pockets of fat that they would like to eliminate. Body contouring devices are best used to eliminate small pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise, with body contouring devices you are looking to improve the silhouette of the patient’s body.
Before undergoing any body contouring procedure, it’s essential for patients to consult with a medical professional to ensure that the procedure is safe and appropriate. As a practitioner you will need to do a thorough examination of the treatment area and evaluate the patient’s overall health status. You will also discuss the expected results, risks, and side effects with the patient.
Overall, body contouring devices are a safe, non-invasive, and convenient option for patients looking to slim down and tone specific areas of the body. With various options available like Clatuu Alpha, Ultraformer III, ULFIT, Acoustic Wave Therapy and more, ensuring you are up-to-date on your device training is critical for your patient care. It is also important to have realistic expectations and understand that these devices are not a substitute for weight loss, and therefore you must manage your patients’ expectations.
