What is Body Sculpting?

Play Video

Body sculpting uses a non-invasive body contouring device that uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy to stimulate muscle contractions. The main goal of this treatment is to build muscle and sculpt the figure. During a body sculpting session, the device is applied to the target area, where it delivers pulses to strengthen the tissue. The entire procedure lasts nearly 30 minutes. Patients usually undergo 4 sessions spaced a few days apart to achieve the best results. Body sculpting can be used to treat multiple areas, including the abdomen, flanks, buttocks, arms, thighs, and calves.

Consultation & Preparation for body sculpting

The first step is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Parikh to determine if it is an appropriate procedure for the patient’s needs and goals. Here is what happens during the appointment:

Dr. Parikh evaluates the patient's medical history, medications, diet, and lifestyle to make sure that the treatment will be safe and effective.

The doctor determines the number of sessions and selects body regions that should be targeted with body sculpting.

Dr. Parikh explains what to expect during and after treatments regarding sensation, results, and proper aftercare.

The patient may have to adjust their medications or routines temporarily. Comfortable, athletic clothing should be worn to allow easy access to different body areas, such as the abdomen or buttocks. The procedure itself requires no special preparation other than being well-hydrated and avoiding lotions or oils before arriving.

Body Sculpting Treatment

Body sculpting is performed without anesthesia or sedation. Patients remain awake and alert throughout the procedure. Some minor discomfort may be felt during treatment.
Patient Positioning
The patient lies down on a treatment bed, and the target body area is expose...
Dr. Parikh assists in choosing the best position to make the procedure as comfortable as possible.
Device Application
The Body sculpting device is applied directly to the skin in

the treatment area. It delivers focused electromagnetic energy to that zone. Dr. Parikh puts a special gel between the device and the skin to improve conduction.

Muscle Contractions
Body sculpting causes powerful supramaximal muscle
contractions during a 30-minute session. This intense activity increases energy demands in the surrounding areas, which may lead to some fat burning. Overall, the contractions are intense but do not involve serious discomfort.
Treatment Plan
In most cases, 4 Body sculpting treatments are performed over
2-4 weeks, spaced at least 2 days apart for the best results. More sessions can be scheduled for continued muscle building during 3-6 month.

Recovery After Body Contouring Procedures

The recovery period after a body sculpting procedure is relatively quick. Patients may experience some mild soreness, swelling, redness, or bruising around the treated area for 1-2 days. It is recommended to avoid strenuous physical tasks during this time. Most people return to normal activities the next day with little downtime or disruption to their regular schedule. They feel ready to work out again within 2-3 days.

Staying well hydrated before and after body sculpting sessions helps to minimize side effects. Results develop over several weeks as the treatment progresses. With minimal symptoms and downtime, body sculpting can fit into most lifestyles.

parts. Supramaximal contractions break down and eliminate nearly 19% of fat cells in the targeted areas.

Contraindications for Body sculpting Banner

for Body sculpting


Body sculpting treatment is not recommended for pregnant women. The magnetic fields and muscular contractions induced by body sculpting have unknown effects on a developing fetus. As a precaution, pregnant women must postpone this treatment until after childbirth.

Cardiac Devices

People with pacemakers, defibrillators, or other implanted electronic devices should not undergo this procedure. The strong magnetic field created by body sculpting could potentially interfere with or disrupt these tools. Patients need clearance from their cardiologist confirming the safety of Body sculpting for their specific device prior to starting treatment.

Metal Implants

The magnetic field used in body sculpting can heat metal implants and affect their function. People with surgical screws, plates, or joint replacements should not use body sculpting unless explicitly cleared by their surgeon. Tattooed eyeliner or permanent makeup may also contain traces of metal and be contraindicated.


Those with active or previous cancer must be cautious with body sculpting. Though research is limited, the magnetic energy could theoretically increase circulation and blood flow to tumors. Patients should consult their oncologist before considering body sculpting treatment.

Benefits of Body Sculpting Treatments

Burns Fat Cells
Body sculpting uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy to induce powerful muscle contractions. This causes the body to burn fat cells to fuel tissue growth. Research shows that body sculpting can eliminate up to 19% of excess fat in a treated area after 4 sessions.

The powerful activity triggered by body sculpting increases muscle tissue and tone in the abdomen, buttocks, and other areas. With thousands of supramaximal contractions per session, body sculpting stimulates muscle growth in ways that exercise alone often cannot match. The result is a visibly firmer and more toned physique.

Unlike liposuction and other surgical procedures, body sculpting is entirely non-invasive. It requires no anesthesia, incisions, or recovery time. The treatment sessions have no major side effects or health risks. This makes body sculpting a safer alternative for those looking to contour and tighten trouble spots without plastic surgeons. We do not need stressful and risky procedures, such as fat transfer or tummy tuck, to achieve stunning results. There are better alternatives to plastic surgery.

Patients see results quickly with body sculpting. Clinical studies show noticeable improvement in muscle tone after just four sessions. The final contours continue to improve over the 3-6 months following the full treatment course as the body removes dead fat cells. For those who want sculpting without surgery, body sculpting can be a highly effective procedure.
