Body Contouring

Many people want a shapelier body, but not everyone wants to have surgery. The Department of Dermatology at the Mount Sinai Health System offers a wide selection of non-invasive procedures approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. These techniques dissolve fat and tighten your skin for an improved contour and body shape.


SculpSure® can eliminate unwanted body fat and improve your body contour. The procedure uses laser technology to remove stubborn fat cells on the abdomen and flanks. We can treat multiple zones of fat simultaneously in less than 30 minutes. You will see results in as little as six weeks and improvements continue over many months. You should be able to return to regular activities right away.


Thermage® uses radio-frequency energy to tighten, lift, smooth, and contour your skin. This technology improves your skin’s quality by stimulating new collagen production. It treats sagging and wrinkled skin on the face, abdomen, arms, hands, thighs, and buttocks. Treatment usually takes 45 to 90 minutes, and you can go back to your regular activities right away. You should see results over the following three to six months as your body produces new collagen.


Ultherapy® uses ultrasound technology to tighten, lift, smooth, and contour the skin. By stimulating new collagen, this technology improves the quality of your skin. It treats fine lines and wrinkles, eye hooding, neck sagging, drooping chin, and jowl formation. We also use it on the neckline to reduce wrinkling and signs of aging. The process usually takes less than an hour and you can return to regular activities right away. You will see results over the following two to four months.
