Work, Jr., offers body sculpting for men and women in and around the Buckhead, Vinings and Sandy Springs area in Georgia.
What is Body Sculpting?
Body sculpting refers to several types of procedures that help you achieve the sculpted and toned body you desire. Body sculpting is often used to remove fatty deposits that have accumulated in areas of the body and have not responded to diet and exercise. There are several different procedures that may be used to sculpt the body. Dr. Work’s recommendation will depend on the area of the body being treated and the amount of fat that needs to be removed.
Benefits of Body Sculpting
Body sculpting is a dream come true for many adults who have worked hard through diet and exercise to obtain their ideal weight and muscle tone but have trouble losing the last deposits of fat that their body has stored tightly over many years in particular areas. These problematic fat pockets or areas of excess skin seem not to respond to diet and exercise and prevent you from having a smooth, sculpted silhouette. Body sculpting procedures are specifically designed to reduce unsightly fat from problem areas, such as your abdomen, hips, thighs, upper arms, back and the pubic or genital region. For many patients, body contouring rejuvenates their appearance and boosts confidence and self-esteem. Many people report that after body sculpting, clothes fit better and that they feel more comfortable and confident with their bodies.
