Body Sculpting in Salt Lake City, UTWith the temperatures finally starting to cool down, you may have visions of falling leaves and pumpkin spice lattes dancing around in your head. One of the best parts about fall is a change in wardrobe which means that you get to break out the oversized sweaters, skinny jeans, and booties but if you are self-conscious about your body then you may feel quite ready to squeeze into those skinny jeans. If you feel like diet and exercise have failed you and you would like to lose a few pounds to finally be able to wear those jeans, then this article is for you.

Body Contouring Procedures

Here at our office, Dr. Benjamin Dunkley offers patients two main types of body contouring procedures; surgical liposuction and Smartlipo. Depending on your preference, your body type, and the results you want, one of these procedures may be a better choice for you than another.


Traditional liposuction is the oldest form of body contouring that surgeons still use today, and it’s very effective. As more of a body sculpting procedure than anything, liposuction uses small, thin cannulas that are inserted through tiny incisions in the skin. Once the cannulas have been placed, fat is then suctioned out of the body and under the skin to get rid of fat deposits.


SmartLipo is similar to traditional liposuction except for the fact that it uses a laser to heat up the fat and liquify it. Once the fat has been liquefied, it’s easier for Dr. Dunkley to suction it out of your body with smaller cannulas which means less bruising, pain, and a shorter recovery time.

In addition to getting one of these body sculpting procedures done from Dr. Dunkley, continuing to eat a healthy, lean diet and get regular exercise will also help you fit into those skinny jeans as soon as possible. If you want to learn more about these body sculpting procedures, schedule a consultation with Dr. Dunkley at our Murray office and call us today at (801) 268-2650.
