It is no secret that many women today are unhappy with their body shape. For some women it can seem like no matter what exercise routine or new diet they try, they just can’t get rid of those last few pockets of body fat. This is because sometimes the structure of the body is more an issue of genetics than anything else. However, there is good news for these women, as several procedures now exist in the field of body contouring that can solve this difficult problem. These are some of the most popular.

SmartLipo
SmartLipo is a liposuction process that uses a laser to make the cosmetic procedure safer and more effective, as well as tighten up the skin. Depending on the number of areas treated, the procedure takes a few hours to complete, and has a recovery time from one day to a few weeks.

Liposculpture
Liposculpture is a more traditional liposuction process that removes fat deposits from between the skin and the muscles. The procedure can take between one and four hours, depending on how many areas are being treated, and recovery usually takes between a few days and a few weeks.

Body Jet Lipo
Body Jet Lipo is a process that uses a jet of water to remove fat cells intact so that they can then be re-injected back into other parts of the body for sculpting, such as the breasts and buttocks. The treatment takes between one and four hours depending on the amount of work to be done, and recovery takes between a few days and a few weeks.

Bikini Tummy Tuck
A Bikini Tummy Tuck uses an incision along the lower bikini line to remove fat and tighten the skin around the stomach area. This procedure better preserves the blood vessels than a traditional tummy tuck, which leads to better healing.

Brazilian Butt Lift
The Brazilian Butt Lift is a procedure where fat deposits are removed from other areas on the body and then used to fill out and re-sculpt the butt into a more desirable shape. The full treatment takes between two and four hours, and full recovery takes a few weeks.
