Body shape is the result of many factors. The first is your bone structure, which determines the overall size of your frame. However, it is the contours of soft tissue that generally define our vision of an attractive body. For example, most people would describe the ideal abdomen as flat and firm. The flatness comes from the absence of excess belly fat, while the firmness comes from well-toned abdominal muscles. Because fat and muscle are very different types of tissue, they require different types of treatments:

  • Toning – Emsculpt Neo targets muscles, using electromagnetic technology to stimulate powerful contractions. A single session is equivalent to about 20,000 crunches or other exercise repetitions. Just imagine doing that much in one day at the gym!
  • Trimming – LipoCel works with high-frequency ultrasound energy, targeting fat cells without disrupting skin and muscle tissue. This industry-leading technology provides lasting results and continues to be an appropriate option for patients looking to reduce fat and improve body contours. Due to its design, this device can accommodate all sizes and shapes of bodies, flattening stubborn fat bulges and doing so for patients of both sexes and all races.

The problem is not fat or muscle for many patients – it is both. Comprehensive body sculpting is often a combination treatment with LipoCel and Emsculpt Neo to achieve muscle toning and fat removal. Emsculpt Neo builds muscle by 25% and burns fat by 30%. LipoCel reduces fat and can be used in those that have more fat to burn first before we build muscle after. In some cases, she may also include skin tightening technology such as Exilis, Kybella injections to target very small fat deposits, and other nonsurgical procedures.


Because each body is different, the very best body sculpting treatment plan is one tailored to your specific needs and aesthetic goals. Dr. Jeanine Downie is a one of the best-known names in nonsurgical aesthetic medicine, and she has extensive experience working with body shaping technologies. She understands the nuances and unique benefits of each and believes in creating a customized treatment plan for each patient. Call us at (973) 509-6900 for a consultation.
