Not only does body sculpting involve surgical procedures that contour the shape of our bodies, it involves non-surgical treatments done to reshape the body into a more defined figure. At Downtown Dermatology, Dr. Shari Hicks-Graham, a board-certified dermatologist, uses body sculpting treatments on people living in Columbus, OH, and the surrounding communities to give them a fit, contoured shape.
Body sculpting incorporates cosmetic treatments that offer solutions to people who are unhappy with the shape of their bodies. It is common for the body to change with age or because of an unhealthy lifestyle. With body sculpting treatments, fat is greatly diminished, skin is tightened, and more definition is created on areas of the body no matter the extent of maintaining diet and exercise regimen.
At Downtown Dermatology, the following body sculpting treatments are offered:
The non-invasive treatments for body-sculpting offer people a chance to achieve or maintain their appearance by contouring areas of the body that do not respond to diet and exercise or are affected by age. Other benefits of body sculpting include:
Non-invasive body sculpting treatments can be performed on different areas of the body depending on the selected treatment. With these treatments, patients can tone and tighten areas such as the stomach, thighs, buttocks, upper arms, face, hands and other areas of the body.
The treatments vary depending on the area of the body being treated. The non-invasive body sculpting treatments performed at Downtown Dermatology use radio frequency waves and ultrasound energy to target fat deposits and loose skin. Each treatment involves placing handheld devices over the targeted areas to penetrate the skin.
Body sculpting treatments may be used in combination with each other to maximize their efforts. Each treatment takes no more than an hour to complete. Several treatments are typically required to achieve the desired look with each treatment scheduled one to two weeks apart.
With non-invasive body sculpting treatments, there is no recovery in terms of downtime and healing. Patients return to their normal routines immediately after the treatments. Following the treatments, the body eliminates the waste from the treatments if performed to reduce fat; whereas, with skin tightening, the treatments boost the production of collagen and elastin to add volume to the skin. As the collagen increases, the skin gets firmer and smoother.
The cost of body sculpting varies depending on the treatment, the area of the body where it is performed, and there is a combination of treatments performed at the same time. During a consultation, Dr. Hicks-Graham discusses cost you as well as our payment options including financing. We also accept cash, personal checks, and credit cards.

Once this is completed, Dr. Hicks-Graham makes a recommendation about which treatment is the best option and answers any questions you may have.
