What is Body Contouring?

body contouring münchen

Not every woman or man has a figure as “painted”: severe weight fluctuations due to dieting, weak connective tissue or the natural aging process can cause the abdomen, legs, buttocks and arms to lose their original beauty. This is because these factors often cause the formerly firm areas on the body to begin to sag and droop.

It is also possible that stubborn fat deposits interfere with a harmonious silhouette. They accumulate especially on the abdomen, legs and buttocks and become visible as unsightly “life rings”. These fat deposits are particularly annoying and disturbing, especially if those affected exercise regularly, eat a healthy diet and otherwise have an athletic figure.

Our patients need not despair of these “blemishes”: modern cosmetic medicine makes it possible, with special forms of therapy, to consciously harmonize and sculpt parts of the body and achieve aesthetic contours and proportions. This is called body contouring – and with us, it can be done without major surgery.

In this blog article, we will show you which treatments we can use to tighten your problem areas and how they will regain significant “shape” as a result.

Get rid of excess fat cells and tighten the skin

Stubborn fat deposits on the abdomen, waist, thighs or even the upper arms can be removed as well as the skin tightened with these body contouring therapies:


In this treatment, you lie down under the special enCurve device. The radiofrequency waves penetrate deep into your tissue and target your fat cells. A constant heat is applied to them, which stimulates the fat cells and they begin to vibrate strongly. This creates frictional heat that causes the body to break down the excess cells. Therapy with enCurve is simple, enjoyable, and can help you get your body back into the shape you want.

Btl exilis elite™

Similar to enCurve, BTL Exilis Elite™ treatment heats and thus destroys the excess fat cells. The treatment approach is based on radio/ultrasound. Furthermore, the connective tissue cells are encouraged to form new and firm collagen during this treatment. BTL Exilis Elite™ not only removes fat deposits, but also tightens skin and connective tissue.

You can find more detailed information on our topic page for BTL Exilis Elite™.


This treatment also relies on heat generated by radiofrequency. Attiva radiofrequency therapy can achieve several results at the same time: Small fat deposits are alleviated, the skin is tightened and rejuvenated, and certain areas can even be lifted with it. The tissue gets new elasticity and freshness, the body contour is visibly optimized.

More information about the treatment can be found on the page for Attiva Radiofrequency Therapy.

Injection lipolysis / fat-away injection

Injection lipolysis is an innovative and very effective form of therapy for troublesome fat deposits (e.g. too much hip fat or a double chin). For this purpose, we inject a specific active ingredient directly into the fatty tissue of the affected area using a fine cannula. This dissolves the fat cells and causes them to break down. Finally, they are disposed of by the body through the lymphatic system. The result: a beautiful, harmonious body image.

Cellfina: effective fight against cellulite.

Certain structural connections under the skin of women are to blame for the development of “orange peel skin”. The female subcutaneous fatty tissue consists of thin strands of connective tissue, most of which run perpendicular to the skin. They connect the skin and muscles with each other. Sometimes they thicken and shorten, pulling down the fat cells lying next to them. Depressions, waves and dents appear on the surface of the skin – the typical golf ball pattern of cellulite.

Cellfina is an innovative and minimally invasive treatment option to counteract cellulite dimples. In a minor procedure, we separate the shortened connective tissue fibers, which reduces the pull on the skin. Over the treatment area, it is significantly smoothed, and the dimples are softened or no longer visible at all.

Emsculpt: muscle building and fat reduction

As a rule, you can only achieve a beautiful, toned figure by exercising regularly. However, in terms of both time and fitness, it is not possible for everyone to train so intensively. In addition, many women and men do not achieve the results they desire, even with strong sporting activity. Sometimes fat deposits remain despite sporting efforts, sometimes muscles simply do not become defined enough.

Emsculpt helps to stimulate muscle growth and thus promote muscle development. Focused electromagnetic pulses stimulate even the deepest muscle layers. One session, which lasts about half an hour, is equivalent to the effect of 20,000 completed sit-ups or squats. With the treatment the muscles become more present. In addition, the fat in the treated area also disappears.

You can find detailed information about this new treatment method on our topic page for Emsculpt Munich.


A beautiful, pleasing figure with harmonious proportions is not given to everyone. If sports and a healthy diet do not help to tighten the body and lift the skin, we can help with our body tightening / body contouring treatments.
