Many people work hard to tone and tighten their bodies with gym memberships and cardio—many with little to no luck. Unfortunately, various factors outside of your control, such as genetics or medical conditions, can make it next to impossible to get a toned body.

Luckily, there are revolutionary non-surgical technologies that can contour and enhance muscle definition without surgical knives and repeated gym reps. These cosmetic treatments help individuals achieve the sculpted shape they have always wanted.

How Can I Tone My Contours Without Going Under the Knife?

Yes, it is possible to tone your body without surgery. There are highly advanced non-surgical treatments that can tone the body by forcing muscle contractions and using radiofrequency technologies. These treatments are safe, pain-free, and offer visible results. Different treatments are best for different body parts or goals, so it is important to talk to your plastic surgeon to determine which non-surgical body contouring treatment is best for you.

The Plastic Surgery Specialists offer two revolutionary non-surgical body contouring treatments for patients to choose from.


Emsculpt® is a non-surgical treatment that uses cutting-edge technology to induce “supramaximal” contractions in your muscle, which helps to create a toned aesthetic without time at the gym by stimulating muscle growth.

Patients can use Emsculpt® treatments to offer patients a stronger core, enhanced abdominal features, and more shapely buttocks.

Emsculpt® offers visible results within two to four weeks of the initial treatment.

Apollo™ System

The Apollo™ System uses third-generation advanced TriPollar® Radio Frequency (RF) technology to provide body and facial contouring using gentle heat-based tightening of tissues. Patients experience pain-free treatments that can help tighten skin, reduce fat, and possibly help minimize stretch marks.

The Apollo™ System offers visible results in just one treatment and results that are clinically proven to last.

Will These Treatments Provide Me Permanent Results?

While Emsculpt® and the Apollo™ System both produce noticeable results, they have to be maintained if you want them to last. You need to consider and treat your body contouring results just like you would treat your hard-earned muscles that were not achieved with cosmetic treatments. 

You need to maintain your results with a healthy lifestyle (including a nutritious diet and regular exercise), or else they will be lost.
