Do you have a big event coming up that you want to look your best for? Maybe a wedding, family gathering or a photoshoot for a Christmas card? Picking the right time for your body contouring procedure can help you look sleeker before your big day.
Take a look at the timeline of results from three of the most popular body contouring treatments to help you plan.
VelaShape™ III is a nonsurgical body contouring treatment that uses a combination of infrared, vacuum and radiofrequency waves. This treatment has been FDA-approved for temporary circumferential and cellulite reduction. VelaShape™ III can be an excellent option for women and men who aren’t interested in a surgical procedure.
Most people plan for a series of short VelaShape™ III treatment sessions spaced about 2 weeks apart, although you can also choose to have a single longer session typically lasting between 60 and 75 minutes. Result times vary from patient to patient, so check with your plastic surgeon.

If you’re considering liposuction, you should plan to take at least 1 week off work, although everyone will recover at their own pace. Results after liposuction appear gradually, so give yourself plenty of time to plan your big reveal.
