What is Body Sculpting?
Our body sculpting treatments address one of the most problematic aesthetic aspects of looking your best — unwanted fat that does not respond to diet and exercise. We know that you work hard to tone your body and maintain an attractive shape, but nature can sometimes work against you. Our bodies have different types of fat. Some fat is reduced easily when we increase our activity levels and reduce caloric intake. This type of fat is stored around our internal organs. A second type of fat is found in the skin, and this is nearly impossible to lose with diet and exercise. Body sculpting treatments remove the fat that is stored in your skin.
Why Choose Dermatologists of Birmingham for Body Sculpting
Our board-certified dermatologists understand skin, so we can identify if your fat is stored in the subcutaneous layers. This expertise gives our patients an advantage in their efforts to reduce unwanted bulges and pockets of fat that hide their natural contours.

CoolSculpting® and Kybella® require no downtime, and the fat gradually disappears. Liposuction immediately removes unwanted fat, but does require small surgical incisions and some downtime. Procedure times vary based on the treatment area and amount of fat to be removed.
