Body Contouring to Help You Look and Feel Your Best
Feeling confident about how you look is a priceless sensation. When you are confident of your appearance, it positively impacts every aspect of how you carry yourself. Building our image is the reason we workout at the gym, maintain a healthy diet or even visit the slimming centre. But, many a time, we seem unable to achieve the expected results. This is particularly true for the problem of stubborn fat deposits in and around our midsection area.
Modern science offers us an explanation for this riddle. By the time we are five years old, the number of adipocytes or fat storage cells we will finally have in our body is, by and large, decided by our genetic programming. Since the number of fat cells in the body is relatively fixed and unchanged, it means that weight gain or loss does not increase of decrease the number of fat cells. The fat cells in our body only increase or decrease in size according to the weight we gain or lose respectively.
Earlier, liposuction was the best solution for people dealing with stubborn fat pockets in the body. But it’s an invasive surgery and also an expensive proposition. Strides in medical science have led to the development of a number of fat reduction technologies that are non-invasive yet effective and safe.
How To Achieve A Toned Sculpted Body?
By Dr. Kenneth Thean
What are the Areas We Can Reduce?
- Upper & Lower Abdomen
- Inner and Outer Thighs
- Bra and Back Fat
- Underneath the Buttocks (Banana Roll)
- Men Chest (Gynecomastia)
- Double Chin (Submental Area)
Which treatment is suitable for me?
Since every person is different in terms of their physical proportions, genetic makeup, lifestyle, dietary habits, treatment suitability can also vary from person to person. Body Sculpting is not a fat reduction procedure that follows the ‘one size fits all’ principle. Research conducted in this area shows that the fat cells are more fragile to therapeutic levels of heat and cold, and are therefore able to be destroyed. Some people have fat cells that are more cold-resistance while the fat cells in others may be heat-resistant. By using a combination of CoolSculpting, which is a fat-freezing procedure, and SculpSure laser thermolysis technologies, we can target both types of fat cell populations. This way your transformation becomes a reality.
At Ensoul, we have dedicated ourselves to help you achieve your specific needs. In that direction, we offer a comprehensive range of services that can convert your dreams of a shapely body into beautiful reality.
The Process between Fat Freezing & Laser Treatment
The CoolSculpting procedure is primarily applied on patients having more of the ‘pinchable’ type of fat deposits in their bodies. This procedure employs a fat freezing technique to specifically target those very areas that fat deposits exist. The procedure is quite comfortable. A cup-shaped vacuum applicator is placed on the skin surface atop the fatty deposits. Extremely low temperatures of up to -13°C are focused on the target area, to freeze and destroy the fatty cells lurking just below the skin. Over the following 6 to 12 weeks, the targeted fat cells are gradually expelled from the body, leaving you with less localized fat and a better-shaped body.
SculpSure is a Laser Thermolysis procedure that gently heats subcutaneous fatty cells, with the help of laser energy at a specific wavelength. A cooling plate ensures that the skin surface remains unaffected. Initially, the patient’s skin is cooled down and maintained during the course of the laser treatment. The temperatures used in this procedure range between 42°C and 47°C. The application of heat results in damage to the targeted fat cells’ structure. Subsequently, the damaged fat cells are expelled from the body over the following 8 to 12 weeks.

A detailed body assessment is required in order to provide a suitable treatment plan and an accurate quote.
Q2. How many treatments will I need?
Every patient is different. It varies from person to person as each of us is different in terms of physical proportions, problem areas, genetic makeup and dietary habits. A clear picture of treatment requirements will emerge after a personal consultation with Dr. Kenneth Thean and a body assessment complete by our Body Specialist. Based on the findings of the consultation and body assessment, the treatment plan will be finalized. Schedule an appointment for a personal consultation to discuss the possibilities in this regard.
Q3. Is it suitable for men and women?
The body contouring works equally well for both men and women. The treatment is customisable to cater to individual’s body shape and needs.
Q4. Am I a candidate for Body Contouring?
Body Contouring is not meant to be a weight loss program for people who are grossly overweight or obese. This treatment aims to achieve better body contours by ridding the stubborn fat cells that resist conventional solutions like diet control and exercise.
Body Contouring is for you, if you're;
- Relatively healthy
- Can grab at least an inch of fat, from the desired area, between your thumb and index finger;
- Not pregnant.
- Have stubborn pockets of fat resistant to healthy diet and regular exercise
