With spring already here, summer is just around the corner, and we all know what that means: it’s time to bust out your summer clothes. Whether you are planning to go to the beach, lounge at the pool, or simply go around wearing crop tops and shorts, summer is the time to reveal your body. 

That said, around 30 percent of people experience swimsuit shyness, mostly for one reason: excess fat. It can be very difficult to feel comfortable in revealing clothing when you have rolls and pockets of fat poking out. Luckily, Dr. Ariel Ostad has numerous alternatives for you to sculpt your body so that you are finally ready for summer.

Who Should Get Body Sculpting Treatments?

Excess fat is something that everyone deals with to some extent. Some have more of it, others have less, but in places where it should not be. If you are bothered by how your body looks to the point where you keep hiding underneath your clothes, then body-sculpting treatments are your go-to. 

No matter the body-sculpting procedure you choose, its goal is to reduce stubborn fat. For this reason, you should be near your ideal weight or at the end of a weight-loss journey before resorting to this solution. The treatments can help tackle the fat that resists dieting and exercise (i.e., belly fat or love handles), smoothing your body so that you look your finest. 

Popular Options to Choose

Here are some of the procedures we offer to help you refine your body:

1. Tumescent Liposuction

Liposuction has been used for a long time to reduce body fat, and the procedure relies on cannulas to eliminate fat cells. A very popular option is tumescent liposuction, which is a lower-impact alternative to the traditional type. The treatment is performed under local anesthesia, with Dr. Ostad injecting a solution that temporarily shrinks the blood vessels. This reduces blood loss and, ultimately, keeps recovery time low.

To make the most of your recovery and improve your results, liposuction is ideally followed up by lymphatic drainage. This treatment helps keep the post-liposuction swelling under control by using massage, ultrasound, and LED light. Usually scheduled about two weeks after the liposuction procedure, lymphatic drainage encourages fluid elimination from the tissue. 


While liposuction is a very effective way to eliminate excess fat, not everyone has the time to go through the potential side effects or downtime. In this case, the EMSCULPT NEO® treatment proves to be a good alternative. This procedure allows patients to eliminate excess fat while toning their bodies. 

This non-invasive procedure uses both RF and HIFEM™ energy to sculpt the body, giving you a fit look. The radiofrequency rapidly kills the fat cells and tightens the skin, and HIFEM™ stimulates the muscles into contracting. The procedure is similar to a workout but without all the movement.

3. BodyTite®

When your problem is not necessarily with the fat patches but with the excess tissue sagging on your body, then BodyTite® is a suitable option. The procedure uses RF-assisted lipolysis to send heat into the deeper layers of skin, triggering your body to heal itself once more and offering you a youthful, tight look. One session is generally enough to show results, but some patients may need multiple treatments. 

The skin tightening treatment can be effective for various reasons. First, radiofrequency energy has the power to induce fat loss, killing the cells underneath the skin. The same laser can improve collagen and elastin production, which helps tighten the skin. This can bring you closer to the body of your dreams.
