Are you working out and watching what you eat but still not seeing the results you want? If so, our body sculpting and contouring center, Alluring Concepts Medi Spa, may be the solution.
What is body sculpting?
As our bodies age, they often accumulate localized fat deposits in areas such as the stomach, waist, upper arms, and thighs. No matter how hard we exercise or how strictly we diet, these stubborn fat deposits refuse to go away. At our body contouring and liposculpture center, we use advanced surgical techniques to solve problems that basic fitness can't eliminate by specifically targeting the localized fat in these trouble spots. In short, at Alluring Concepts MediSpa, you can find the lean, sleek figure you've been working so hard for.
There has never been a better time to consider body sculpting/contouring. Today, our body sculpting and contouring center offers advanced liposuction technologies such as Smartlipo laser liposuction. Techniques like Smartlipo allow our board-certified physicians to finely sculpt body areas that may not have been accessible in traditional liposuction, which is performed using larger cannulas. These new, targeted liposculpture methods have greatly improved the results that body sculpting and body contouring can deliver.
How does body sculpting work?
At Alluring Concepts, body sculpting experts Dr. Eric R. Haynes and Dr. Rudy Panganiban will work with you to discuss which areas you would like to target with body sculpting/contouring. Together, you'll come up with a liposculpture-based solution, which may include the following treatments:
Sarasota-Bradenton Body Sculpting Procedures
Smartlipo – Laser Assisted Lipolysis
Dr. Eric R. Haynes and Dr. Rudy Panganiban are among the Sarasota/Bradenton/Venice area's leading doctors for Smartlipo laser liposuction, one of the most sought-after new cosmetic procedures. In Smartlipo laser liposuction, laser energy is used to liquefy fat, making it easier to remove it while at the same time tightening the surface of the skin. Visit our Smartlipo laser liposuction page to learn more about how we perform this treatment at our body sculpting center.
Tumescent liposuction has been used for many years to remove fat by inserting a suction tube (called a 'cannula') through which fat cells are extracted. A saline-based solution ('tumescent') is used to help release the fat in the targeted area, making fat removal easier, and to deliver some anesthetic as well. With tumescent liposuction, the doctors at Alluring Concepts can precisely treat specific areas of your body where excess fat accumulates, including common problem areas such as upper arms, thighs, abdomen, and waist.
BodyJet Water-Assisted Liposuction
Our Liposculpture center also offers BodyJet water-assisted liposuction, a revolutionary new procedure that uses a spray of water to loosen and separate fat cells from their connective tissue while causing minimal disturbance to blood vessels. BodyJet liposuction offers excellent results with less swelling and postoperative discomfort and bruising, faster recovery, and faster treatment time than traditional liposuction. Treatments can be performed in our state-of-the-art clinic under local anesthesia.
Cellulite Reduction (AWT - Acoustic Wave Therapy)
Our Sarasota body contouring center also provides Acoustic Wave Therapy treatments, which get rid of cellulite by delivering pressure waves to layers of skin and fat. The treatment breaks down masses of fibrous layers under the skin, which have contracted, giving the skin a dimpled or lumpy appearance. When the fibrous layers break down, they release the skin, allowing it to regain a smoother appearance. Acoustic Wave Therapy also thickens the second layer of skin, contributing to a smoother overall appearance.
Mesotherapy treats a wide range of cosmetic concerns by injecting microscopic amounts of natural substances, including vitamins, medications, homeopathic treatments, and natural extracts into the skin. Mesotherapy has been used to get rid of cellulite, assist with weight loss, rejuvenate skin, and reduce sagging skin. Mesotherapy treatments can be delivered right in our body sculpting center, without anesthesia or downtime.
Will body sculpting be effective for you? Body sculpting is ideal for people who are already physically fit but who need a little extra help removing fat from problem areas that are hard to reach with exercise alone. As with any medical treatment, there are limits to what body sculpting can accomplish. Body sculpting/contouring won't give a significantly overweight person a supermodel's body. But if you are already following good body-maintenance habits by exercising regularly and eating well, liposculpture can help you get rid of that little bit of flab and fat that no workout or gym in the world is going to fix.

You can bridge the gap between the healthy habits you already follow and the great body you want. Contact us today to arrange your free consultation!
When it was introduced several years ago, Smartlipo® signaled a revolution in liposuction. At our Bradenton/ Sarasota/ Venice laser liposuction center, Smartlipo® is used to melt the fat within the fat cells (without causing significant damage to surrounding blood vessels), making it much easier to remove. As an added benefit, the laser wavelength also contracts collagen in the skin, smoothing and tightening it. Smartlipo® can be used on its own to treat smaller problem areas, or it can be used together with other treatments to target larger areas.
Benefits of Smartlipo® Laser Liposuction at our Smartlipo® clinic
- Smartlipo® allows targeted treatment of hard-to-reach areas because it uses a smaller cannula (the suction tube through which fat cells are removed)
- Smartlipo® laser liposuction is minimally invasive, with much shorter recovery times than traditional liposuction
- Because fat is liquefied before it is removed, Smartlipo® reduces trauma during the procedure – meaning less bruising and swelling
- With Smartlipo® laser liposuction, you get the additional benefit of tighter skin in the areas treated
- Smartlipo® can be done in combination with VASER where appropriate
Who is a good candidate for Smartlipo® Laser Liposuction?
If you have an active lifestyle, are in overall good health, and are slightly to moderately overweight, treatment with Smartlipo® laser liposuction may be right for you. A consultation with one of the board-certified physicians at our Bradenton/ Sarasota/ Venice Smartlipo® Laser Liposuction center will help determine whether Smartlipo® can help you. It's important to remember that Smartlipo® alone will not result in a large volumes of fat removal. Instead, the procedure sculpts areas with difficult-to-eliminate fat deposits. If you are looking for more extensive weight loss, Smartlipo® in combination with VASER or traditional liposuction may be able to help you reach your goals. Our Bradenton / Sarasota/ Venice laser liposuction center offers a free initial consultation to every new patient to help you to determine what is or is not realistic.
Smart Lipo® Procedure and Recovery
Smartlipo® laser liposuction offers a number of benefits over traditional liposuction, including a faster recovery period (a few days compared with a week), minimal bruising and bleeding, and firmer skin tone in the treated areas. The Smart Lipo® laser dissolves fat cells while at the same time coagulating blood vessels, and removes the fat with a smaller (1mm) cannula than that used by traditional liposuction, so trauma to the treated area is greatly reduced. The laser also stimulates collagen contraction to reduce the amount of saggy skin that a traditional liposuction procedure can leave. In short with Smart Lipo®, overall results are better and recovery is faster than in traditional liposuction.
