The words “body sculpting” evoke images of trim waists, slim hips, and a flat abdomen, but today’s nonsurgical and non invasive body contouring options go beyond just those classic trouble spots. Body sculpting treatments like CoolSculpting® and EMSCULPT® at our Dallas dermatology practice can slim down everything from a double chin to a banana roll, often with very little to no recovery time.
Wondering which procedure could be right for you? Read on to learn more about the most common problem spots and the best solutions for each one.
This pocket of fat under the chin obscures a sculpted, defined jawline and neck. It’s an area where many people are naturally predisposed to store fat, even at a healthy weight.
The solutions: Nonsurgical KYBELLA® is an injectable treatment that causes the body to break down submental fat stored under the chin. A series of treatments, typically 2 to 4, helps the body absorb these excess fat cells to reveal a more attractively contoured chin.
For those who want a non invasive solution, CoolSculpting also eliminates the submental fat that causes the appearance of a double chin.
Upper Arms (Bat Wings)
Excess fat, diminished muscle tone, and aging cause the flabby skin that hangs from the triceps. This keeps some people from feeling confident in sleeveless tops or dresses.
The solutions: A multi-pronged approach to sculpting this area is especially effective. CoolSculpting reduces the fat cells while EMSCULPT boosts muscle development. Together they achieve slimmer and more toned upper arms without surgery, injections, or notable downtime.
The abdomen is one of the most common spots for fat accumulation. Even people who work out regularly and lead healthy lifestyles often find they need a bit of help achieving that flat, firm, well-defined midsection they’re after.
The solutions: CoolSculpting and EMSCULPT are terrific body contouring treatments for reducing fat and toning ab muscles to create a more sculpted abdomen. They each offer benefits on their own, but when performed together, they pack a powerful punch by both strengthening muscles and reducing the overlying fat layer to reveal that definition.

Waist & Flanks
Body contouring treatments are great for whittling down the pinchable fat that hangs over the side of your waistband or thickens your waistline (often called “love handles”).
The solution: CoolSculpting reduces fat cells in these areas for a slimmer waistline. The procedure allows you to “spot treat” these pouches directly, something exercise alone can’t achieve.
Stubborn fat deposits, dwindling muscle tone, and cellulite can cause thighs to appear flabby and dimpled.
The solution: EMTONE® is a popular option for the thighs, especially when complemented by a combination of CoolSculpting and EMSCULPT. The non invasive cellulite treatment reduces visible cellulite by up to 93% so that you can enjoy both slimmer and smoother thighs.
Saggy, dimpled buttocks are a common issue for many people. Squats alone aren’t always enough to achieve the round, lifted shape many people are after.
The solutions: A combination of EMSCULPT for muscle building and EMTONE for cellulite reduction can create attractive body contouring results. A series of QWO® injections offer another alternative for diminishing the appearance of moderate to severe cellulite by releasing fibrous bands, redistributing fat cells, and boosting collagen growth in the treatment area.
The crescent-shaped rolls of fat beneath your buttocks are particularly challenging to eliminate with diet and routine exercise.
The solution: CoolSculpting will decrease the fat and bolster muscle development to create a classically appealing rear silhouette you can feel confident about showing off in those bikini bottoms. A recent study showed that multiple CoolSculpting treatments across several areas of the body, including banana rolls, provided a mean decrease in skinfold thickness of 40%.
