With the festive season well behind us and summer holidays on the distant horizon, now’s the time to schedule one or more effective body-shaping or body-sculpting treatment sessions. Singapore’s aesthetic doctors and therapists offer such a wide variety of technologies and services that there’s something to treat every body’s niggling issues. It’s not just about toning or slimming treatments, but body contouring, too. Read on to explore some top recommendations for making this your best body year yet.
Bye bye, back fat… and hello to a shapely silhouette! Even slim, fit and active people can be plagued by stubborn fat that simply won’t budge – especially on the back. Call them back rolls, back wings, bra fat, muffin-tops or whatever, it’s not a good look. So, must we forget about summery, spaghetti strap tops and plunging evening gowns?
It’s a rhetorical question, and the answer is of course no. Right here in Singapore, Brazilian plastic surgeon Dr Marco Faria Correa uses liposuction or liposculpture to surgically remove unwanted fat deposits. This can help you achieve the dramatically improved silhouette you’ve always dreamt of.
Back rolls: Body shaping by liposuction is the way to get rid of the wings that sprout when you put your bra on. In more advanced cases, subsequent skin surgery can be useful.
Armpit lumps: Bulging armpit fat, sometimes due to accessory breast tissue or polymastia in both men and women, can effectively be flattened with liposuction through a small cannula. If surgery is required, the scar can be hidden in the armpit crease.
Bat’s wings: For flabby arms or bat’s wings, two or three sessions of liposuction will thin down the fat layer but leave the skin intact. While the skin gradually retracts, you’ll need to do some work to build up your arm muscles. That’s how to achieve the best possible results.

TriLipo Technology for Body Shaping
Sense De Belle offers a non-invasive body contouring treatment that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat up targeted tissues in problem areas like the abdomen. At the same time, it speeds up blood and lymph circulation to boost detoxification.
The RF energy generates focused heat in both the dermal and subcutaneous layers of the skin. This stimulates fat metabolism in the subcutaneous fat layer and boosts collagen remodelling in the dermal layer.
Internally, the muscle layer contracts and pushes fat cells up towards the surface. At the same time, mechanical pressure from the applicator presses the skin from above. These combined internal and external pressures promote fat removal via accelerated lymphatic drainage. In the dermal layer, focused RF energy heats the collagen fibres. This makes them contract, immediately tightening and smoothing the skin.
Results may be seen from the first treatment. For long-term body shaping, you’ll need a series of sessions. Over time, the combination of internal muscle contraction and external force promotes fat removal and lymphatic drainage, with firmer and tighter skin. Now, is that a triple treat, or what?
Why not precede your triple lipolysis with Sense de Belle’s cavitation detox treatment? It uses specific currents to effectively enhance toxin drainage.

Overline Body Synergy
Now you can slim, contour, drain and even build muscle in a single body-shaping session. Chez Moi de Beaute offers the effective combination of four synergistic technologies, which are delivered in just one 40-minute treatment.
First, target areas receive a wrap that delivers active ingredients for fat-burning, drainage, cellulite reduction or toning. Then, up to eight technology pads are applied to the wrapped target areas, and an appropriate programme is chosen for the duration of the four facetted treatment. It includes.
Radiofrequency, using a controlled diathermy effect to heat adipose and subcutaneous tissue. This triggers vasodilation and increases cellular oxygenation to enhance collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid production for a natural and progressive lifting effect. Electrolipolysis, an effective and targeted body shaping technique to combat cellulite through a tonifying action that also boosts local circulation and triggers fat-burning.
Electro-remodelling, advanced technology that stimulates muscle fibres so as to generate physiological contractions that work like exercise to tone your muscles.
Drain-massage, a potent yet pleasant and relaxing mix of stimulating currents to tone tissues and muscles while mobilising stagnant lymph and eliminating toxins.
You could do this in your lunchtime! Try a session of Overline Body Synergy Treatment for $98 (usually $250).
