Understanding the Different Types of Body Contouring Treatments

Finding the right approach for sculpting and shaping your body can be a unique challenge, as not every method is suitable for every individual. At AMG Aesthetics in Tucson, AZ, we recognize that each patient’s goals are different when it comes to body contouring.

To address this, we offer a variety of body contouring treatments designed to meet diverse preferences and anatomical requirements. Our range of options allows you to explore solutions that can help achieve the desired shape and appearance without committing to a one-size-fits-all solution. This approach ensures that you can make informed decisions about managing your body contouring goals with professional guidance at every step.

What Is Body Contouring?

Body contouring is a type of treatment that reduces excess fat and skin to improve or refine the shape of the body. It can refer to treatments that provide this shaping for areas such as the abdomen, the thighs, the buttocks, the arms, and more. These treatments are often used after pregnancy to restore the body, following weight loss, or to help tackle stubborn fat in any of these areas. 

Is Body Contouring a Type of Weight Loss?

Body contouring is not a weight loss solution but rather a method to shape and define the body after significant changes in body weight have already occurred. It is best suited for removing localized fat deposits and excess skin that diet and exercise alone cannot address. This distinction is important because while body contouring can dramatically alter one’s appearance, it does not significantly reduce body weight.

Different Types of Body Contouring

Surgical Procedures

Surgical body sculpting encompasses a variety of types of body contouring techniques that involve medical operations to remove excess fat and skin. These methods are typically pursued by patients looking for significant changes. Common surgical procedures include liposuction and abdominoplasty, which reshape and smooth the patient’s physique through direct intervention.

Non-Invasive Body Contouring

Not everyone is a good candidate for surgery. Many people are looking for ways to smooth body contours without the hassle of a long downtime or the healing that is required after surgery. That is why we specialize in non-invasive body contouring. Our treatments are an appealing option for patients who prefer less invasive methods or are not suitable candidates for surgery. Benefits of non-surgical body contouring include reduced risk of complications, no need for anesthesia, and minimal disruption to daily life.

Skin Tightening Treatments

Within the spectrum of non-invasive body contouring, skin tightening treatments stand out for their ability to enhance the body’s natural contours by firming loose skin. Using technologies such as radiofrequency, these treatments stimulate collagen production, leading to tighter, more youthful-looking skin over time.

Fat Reduction Treatments

Another facet of non-invasive body contouring is fat reduction. These treatments target and diminish fat cells in specific areas like the abdomen, thighs, and arms without surgery. Techniques such as laser fat reduction or radiofrequency energy are employed to selectively reduce fat layers, helping to sculpt a more defined body silhouette.

Non-Invasive Body Contouring Devices


Invisa-RED™ technology is a type of body contouring that uses the power of infrared light and laser energy to target fat cells, boost circulation, and improve metabolic rates. This device aids in fat reduction, enhances skin tightening, and diminishes the appearance of cellulite. It is a pain-free treatment that requires no downtime.

During an Invisa-RED™ treatment, a specific spectrum of infrared light is combined with the laser energy, and it efficiently penetrates the skin to reach fat cells and other tissues. It is particularly effective on areas like the abdomen, thighs, arms, and waist. By promoting the creation of collagen and enhancing blood flow, this technology helps sculpt the body and improves overall skin quality.

TempSure® Envi

TempSure Envi uses radiofrequency technology as a non-surgical approach to body sculpting. It focuses on tightening the skin and reducing wrinkles by heating the deeper layers of skin to stimulate collagen production. This process results in a firmer, smoother skin appearance and is highly adaptable for treating various facial areas, such as the forehead, around the eyes, and nasolabial folds.

TempSure Envi delivers gentle yet effective radiofrequency waves that deeply penetrate the skin layers without causing surface damage. The heat generated by these waves encourages the natural regeneration of collagen, leading to tightened skin over time. One of the benefits of body contouring with TempSure Envi is that it can be used on the face and body, enhancing skin firmness in areas that may sag with age or after weight loss.


SculpSure is a body contouring system that uses laser technology to target and reduce fat cells in designated areas such as the abdomen, flanks, back, thighs, and under the chin. The device administers a controlled hyperthermic laser treatment, which affects fat cells while keeping the surrounding tissues intact.

The process employed by SculpSure involves the application of laser energy that elevates the temperature of fat cells, effectively disrupting their structural integrity. The body then naturally processes and eliminates these damaged fat cells. Treatments typically last around 25 minutes per area and do not involve any recovery time.

What Type of Body Contouring Treatment Is Right for You? 

Choosing the right non-surgical body contouring treatment hinges on your aesthetic goals and body concerns. Technologies like SculpSure and Invisa-RED are ideal for those seeking to reduce stubborn fat without surgery, offering quick recovery times. For concerns related to skin laxity, TempSure Envi may be more appropriate. Consult with us to determine the best treatment plan for you.

Trying the stem wave today. Have had issues with my back over 25yrs. I have actually been thru surgery in 2014. It did help me not to end up an involed, but I still suffer with pain. I'm hoping this helps with pain, so I can hopefully get off medication. I'm hoping for less downtime in my life and a more enjoyable life! 😉

Dr. B and Dr. G are constantly exploring new technologies and therapies to provide their patients with state-of-the-art procedures to address everything from aesthetic treatments to pain management. The staff is wonderful and welcoming and it’s evident that they care deeply about their patients’ wellbeing. I underwent StemWave therapy in the office and felt an immediate improvement in my shoulder and knee pain. What I love about AMG and am most impressed with is that they are constantly ahead of the curve in regenerative medicine as an alternative to traditional invasive procedures. At AMG you are treated as part of the family.
