Body Contouring | Ava MD

Body Contouring

Many people suffer from unwanted fat bulges that don’t disappear even with lifestyle changes, diet, and exercise. These fat bulges are often hereditary in nature, and extremely difficult to eliminate. For women, these fatty deposits tend to happen in the abdomen and thighs, while for men it’s most often love handles. In addition, cellulite affects around 80 to 90% of adult women, no matter their weight or lifestyle. For men and women who have stubborn spare tires, muffin tops, or saddlebag thighs, Dr. Ava Shamban, Dr. Soheil Simzar, and Dr. Gregory Van Dyke in Santa Monica have a solution. She offers a wide variety of non-invasive body contouring devices that can help you to get closer to the body you want.

Benefits of Non-Invasive Body Shaping

As technology progresses and becomes more sophisticated and effective, non-invasive body contouring devices have become more and more popular among men and women who want to shape their body without needing to undergo liposuction or surgery, which can result in weeks or months of recovery time. Non-invasive fat reduction and body contouring devices generally involve very short procedure times and little to no downtime. Patients can resume their daily activities immediately following a procedure, and see results in as little as a few weeks. Non-surgical body contouring is painless and quick, and there are many devices available that can be used to treat specific body issues such as abdominal and thigh fat deposits, cellulite, and even sagging skin. Dr. Ava in Santa Monica understands that each patient is different, with different goals, and will customize a treatment plan accordingly. For more information on body contouring treatments, visit

Types of Body Contouring Procedures

Dr. Ava and her associates in Santa Monica utilize all of the latest, most advanced technologies to fight unwanted fat deposits and cellulite. Along with tried and true standbys such as CoolSculpting, Ava MD dermatologists also offers the recently FDA approved Kybella injection for chin fat. In the past, the only way to effectively reduce a double chin was through facial liposuction, but with the advent of Kybella, patients can contour their chin area through a simple series of injections. Dr. Ava in Santa Monica participated in the clinical trials which helped secure FDA approval for Kybella, and is very excited to offer this brand-new technology to her patients with double chins.

The range of technology that Dr. Ava offers for fat reduction is vast. Patients who visit Dr. Ava in Beverly Hills can choose from freezing fat cells with CoolSculpting, heating and tightening the dermis through radiofrequency technology in order to tighten, lift, toning muscles through painless electrical currents with UltraTone Futura Fit, and contouring the body through massage and ultrasound with VaserShape.
