Body Contouring 101

What is Body Contouring?

Body contouring is the process of changing the shape of the body via the removal of fat and/or skin. It involves resizing and reshaping certain areas to improve the overall sculpture of a person. It can also include toning areas and improving the appearance of the skin.

There are 2 main methods of body contouring: surgical and non-surgical (non-invasive) methods.

Surgical Method


When it comes to fat removal, liposuction is one of the most popular and top performed surgical procedure for it. It is particularly effective at removing fat in the legs, abdomen, back, arms, face and neck.Image result for liposuction

There are a few ways how liposuction is performed:

Tumescent liposuction – surgeon injects a sterile solution along with lidocaine and epinephrine into the fat area, and use a vacuum to suction the fat through a thin tube from the body.

Ultrasound liposuction – uses ultrasound energy under the skin to rupture the cell walls of the fat. This liquefies the fat so it can be suctioned out.

Laser liposuction – uses laser to produce a burst of energy to liquefy the fat to be suctioned out.

While liposuction is considered to provide the most dramatic results and results are more longer-lasting than non-surgical methods, there are a few downsides to this procedure, one of which is the long recovery period. During the recovery period, patients may also experience bruising, swelling and soreness over the surgery site. Additionally, patients will need to wear a compression garment for up to 3 weeks after the procedure. There are also risks associated with liposuction:

  • Bleeding
  • Numbness
  • Infection
  • Fluid accumulation
  • Reaction to anesthesia
  • Internal puncture
  • Lidocaine toxicity
  • Death
  • Contour irregularities
  • Fat embolism
  • Kidney & heart problems
 Non-surgical methods

Non-surgical methods use different ways to eliminate unwanted fat cells through a topical procedure. This method is far more convenient than going to a medical centre where you have to go under the knife (yikes!) and even suffer from the risky after effects of the surgical procedure during your recovery.

And when you think that all alternatives to liposuction have been tried and tested, you are wrong, because HYSSES has just launched a new Body Contour Cream that uses 100% pure essential oils and traditional herbs to bring your body back to shape.

Ingredients inside Body Contour Cream

SOY EXTRACT - Powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties to help fight production of free radicals in the body, promoting skin hydration and elasticity.

GINGER - Packed with antioxidant which helps to protect the skin from damaging free radicals that causes aging. Great for its blood simulation properties that keep cellulite at bay.

CAFFEINE - Tone and energise the skin.

CLOVE - Known for its potent medicinal properties, it helps kill bacteria and keeps the skin smooth and clear. It also aids blood circulation and tighten skins thus providing a firmer bodyline.

How to use:

Massage onto troubled areas, paying extra attention to the abdomen, thighs, buttocks and arms until cream is fully absorbed. For best results, use twice a day after a warm shower and before bedtime.

Using a body contour cream will stimulate a warming sensation after minutes of application. Your body will not show immediate results after first use, but with regular continued usage, you will see that your body is firmer, with lesser cellulite and a slimmer bodyline.

Tips to increase the effectiveness of the Body Contour Cream

1. Cling wrap

Wrap a sheet of cling wrap over the areas where you had applied the body contour cream and leave on for at least 30 mins while you go about continuing your daily activities.

The cling wrap will help you perspire, which in turn helps to flush out toxins and reduce inches from the wrapped area.

2. Herbal Compress

Applying a herbal compress after applying body contour cream can warm the area to increase lymphatic drainage which will help in getting rid of water retention.

3. Shower Scrub

During shower, exfoliate your skin using a body/shower scrub to remove dead skin cells and prep your skin for better absorption of the body contour cream which you will use after your shower.

4. Ultrasonic body massager

During shower, exfoliate your skin using a body/shower scrub to remove dead skin cells and prep your skin for better absorption of the body contour cream which you will use after your shower.
