Fat Reduction & Body Contouring

A healthy diet and exercise help keep that extra fat off. However, it’s not always enough. At Concept Medical in Ottawa, we offer CoolSculpting® and injectable fat reduction treatments to help you feel confident about your body. Contact us today to learn more.


Your Body Contouring Clinic

Whether you struggle with stubborn fat areas or want body contouring in Ottawa after a major weight loss transformation, our clinic offers two methods: CoolSculpting® and injectable treatments for fat under the chin.

CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical, non-invasive body contouring device that can help decrease fat in almost any area of your body, the most common being the tummy, hips, and thighs. It uses cooling technology to freeze the outside of the fat cell membrane, causing it to dissolve. Unlike liposuction, there is minimal recovery and downtime.

Injectable treatments are another non-surgical body contouring option at our Ottawa clinic. Similarly to CoolSculpting®, these injections target and dissolve the fat cells. This is a typical fat reduction and contouring procedure that is only for under the chin.


The Procedure

The first step with any treatment at Concept Medical is a consultation with one of our physicians. Here, we will evaluate your medical history, physical condition, and goals and determine if you’re a good candidate for body contouring.


What to Expect

The procedure itself is typically non-painful, but you may experience some other sensations. For example, with CoolSculpting®, your skin will be cold for the first 10 minutes.

Depending on the targeted area, your treatment can last anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes or longer. A CoolSculpting® procedure may only need two to three sessions, while non-surgical injections for the double chin may require up to six.

After the treatment, you may experience mild redness and other minor side effects that usually resolve on their own within a few days. More severe but rare risks are possible. Once you’ve completed all your recommended sessions, we may schedule a follow-up visit to monitor your progress and ensure you’ve reached your desired goals.


Pre- and Post-Treatment Care

Like most treatments, we will recommend specific care before and after your treatment to promote effective, long-lasting results.


One week before:

  • Stop blood-thinning or anti-inflammatory medications, as recommended by our experts.
  • Avoid sun exposure or tanning.
  • Consider minimizing smoking and alcohol intake to aid in a faster healing process.

The day of the treatment:

  • Drink plenty of water for hydration.
  • Do not apply lotion or other products to the targeted areas.



Since our procedures are non-surgical and non-invasive, there is little recovery time. However, you may experience some minor discomfort. After your treatment, we encourage you to:

  • Avoid strenuous activities 24 hours after leaving our clinic.
  • Maximize relaxation at least a few days post-procedure.
  • Take pain-relieving medications if recommended by our professionals.
  • Drink lots of fluids to aid in the healing process.


When to Expect Results

Depending on the treatment type, you may see results as early as one to two months. Remember, our body contouring procedures typically require a few sessions, and the outcomes can vary.

Frequently Asked Questions About Body Contouring

Since this cosmetic procedure reshapes the body by removing excess fat, it offers various benefits, including the following:

  • Improved Body Shape: Our clinic can use body contouring procedures to help give you a more toned appearance by removing stubborn fat areas that are diet and exercise-resistant.
  • Boosted Confidence: How we look can sometimes connect to how we feel about ourselves. Our Ottawa body contouring treatments can yield results that boost confidence and self-esteem.
  • Enhanced Physical Functioning: Removing excess fat in areas like your tummy or hips may help improve your mobility and open up new opportunities to engage in the activities you love.
  • Long-Lasting Results: CoolSculpting® and injectable treatments have the potential to offer more permanent, long-lasting results.
  • Minimal Recovery Time: Since our treatments are non-invasive, you can expect to return to your regular routine with minimal downtime.
  • Safe: Our body contouring clinic uses non-surgical methods, which makes for a safe procedure that leaves you with little pain during and after the treatment.

If you’re self-conscious about stubborn areas of fat but don’t want surgery, we want to hear from you! Undergoing a major weight loss transformation, giving birth, and aging are some experiences that may result in these fat areas that are challenging to remove with diet and exercise.

Keep in mind that our treatments are not weight-loss solutions, so we don’t recommend body contouring for those experiencing unstable weight changes and looking for quick-fix options. Additionally, body contouring may not be for you if:

  • You’re pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • You have medical conditions that the procedure can exacerbate. Speak to our experts to discuss your medical history.
  • You have significant fat that a weight loss program could treat.
