How to Choose: Surgical or Non-invasive Body Sculpting?

When you’re first getting into the world of cosmetic procedures, it can be tough to know where to start. You may have an inkling of what you want done to your overall look, but you might not know which procedures are best for achieving that. And then even after you know which procedures do what, you have to decide if you’re willing to do a surgical procedure. Park Meadows Cosmetic Surgery & Aesthetics is here to help guide you through the world of body sculpting procedures and give you insight into whether a surgical or non-invasive procedure is best for you.


Non-invasive body sculpting procedures typically involve the use of injectables or machines that can eliminate fat through the use of various energies. These procedures typically aim to do one of two things, add volume to certain areas and tighten skin, or remove excess fat in various parts of the body. The latter is typically done by the machines whereas the volume additions come with the use of injectables. In either case, you get to enhance your body through a procedure that typically has a very short if any recovery time. It also typically involves immediate results that can be seen right after the procedure. Though at times, the best outcome of the results takes time to see, sometimes weeks or months. At the end of the day, these are typically more approachable procedures that can be done quickly and efficiently.


With that being said, non-invasive body sculpting procedures typically are more limited in their overall effect when compared to surgical procedures. Surgical procedures are more adaptable in that they can reshape features and also remove excess fat AND skin from various areas. If you have more intensive goals for your body, more often than not you will end up wanting to go with surgical procedures due to their versatility. With that being said, these procedures typically involve a substantial amount of recovery time and results that will only be readily apparent after your body has fully recovered. However, these results can also be more permanent than something like injectable fillers which do tend to be reapplied after so many months or a couple of years tops.
