Body Contouring with Contour Light® vs. Liposuction

Are you unhappy with your appearance? Do you want to improve your self-confidence by finally getting rid of that extra weight? If so, you aren't alone—many people struggle with their body image. It’s no secret that many feel that they are under immense pressure to have the “perfect” body. With constant messages from the media bombarding us with images of those who are impossibly thin and toned, it’s no wonder that so many of us feel like we can never measure up. The good news is that there are options available to help you achieve the body of your dreams. Two popular choices are contouring light and liposuction. But what exactly is the difference between these two popular procedures, and which one is right for you? Let's take a closer look at both procedures to find out.

Contour Light®

Contour Light® is a non-invasive alternative to liposuction. It uses LED technology to emit infrared heat waves that penetrate the skin and target the fat cells beneath. The heat from the waves causes the fat cells to break down, and the body then flushes them out through the lymphatic system. Contour Light® treatments are usually done in a series of sessions, and most people see results after the first treatment. The major benefits of Contour Light® are that it is painless and has no side effects with little to no downtime—you can resume your normal activities immediately after a treatment session. Another advantage of Contour Light® is that it can be targeted to specific areas of the body, such as the stomach, thighs, or arms. This is accomplished by placing LED-lined soft, flexible pads on the area you wish to lose weight. Also, it’s important to note that Contour Light® treatments reduce pain and inflammation and improve the appearance of your skin with collagen production as added bonus benefits. 


Liposuction is a more traditional body sculpting procedure that involves suctioning fat cells from specific areas of the body, including the abdomen, thighs, arms, neck, and back. The procedure is more invasive than Contour Light® and requires anesthesia. Recovery time after liposuction can take up to 2 weeks, depending on the extent of the procedure. During this time, you will likely experience some bruising and swelling. Additionally, there is a risk of infection and other complications associated with any surgery, so liposuction should only be performed by a qualified doctor. However, liposuction can provide dramatic results in losing extra weight.  

Which One Works Best for You?

Both Contour Light® and liposuction are effective options for those who want to improve their appearance by getting rid of unwanted fat deposits and achieve a more sculpted look for their bodies. However, it's important to choose the option that is best for you based on your individual needs and goals. If you want a quick and easy, non-invasive option with little to no downtime, Contour Light® may be right for you. On the other hand, if you don't mind having surgery and taking some time off to recover, liposuction is also a choice. Whichever option you choose, make sure to consult with a qualified professional before making any decisions.
