No If, And, or Butts About It

We all would like a perfectly toned and shapely bottom. It may take some work, but it is possible to achieve a tighter bum. Targeted exercise, the right diet, and a little extra body sculpting treatment can all work together to help transform your backside.

Exercise: Working out several times a week will increase your overall fitness and help you lose weight. To maximize the metabolism benefits of a cardio workout, consider incorporating intervals. Intervals are moments of increased effort during your workout routine. Injecting intense periods of effort that push you to breath harder is a great way to optimize your fitness plan. With the right glute toning exercises, you can lose inches from your bottom in a matter of weeks. Some great butt-tightening moves include:

  • Hip lifts
  • Squats
  • Lunges

The key, however, is consistency. In order to benefit from any exercise, you have to commit. Before embarking on a rigorous exercise program, consult your doctor.

Diet: A healthy, well balanced diet is an essential part of any weight loss and maintenance program. Everybody is unique, so there is not a one-size-fits-all approach to diet and weight loss. However, there are some general guidelines that can be followed:

  • Drink plenty of water
  • Eat nutritious meals that include a mix of protein, vitamin-rich vegetables, and whole grains
  • Know the caloric intake that is ideal for your weight loss or maintenance program
  • Avoid empty calories, such as sugary drinks, sodas, and processed foods

Be cautious of fad diets that leave you feeling deprived or that do not address your fundamental eating habits. Working with your doctor and a professional nutritionist is the best way to ensure that your weight loss and maintenance plan is a healthy and effective one.

Body Sculpting: A Little Outside Help

Unfortunately, an excellent diet and regular exercise may not be enough to fully address stubborn fat in the buttocks and thighs. For individuals who have plateaued with diet and exercise, Dr. Paul Jarrod Frank, a New York board-certified dermatologist and leading fat removal specialist, recommends body sculpting treatments. Some state-of-the-art treatments that he offers include:

  •  SmartLipo is a minimally invasive laser technology that simultaneously removes fat and tightens the skin.
  • VASER is a non-invasive fat removal technique that uses laser technology to destroy fat cells. This treatment combined with SmartLipo can significantly reduce unwanted fat around the bum or thigh area.

If you would like to see how body sculpting can help you achieve the perfect butt, contact Dr. Frank at (212) 327-2919.

VASERsmooth Procedure for Cellulite Removal

Despite the cold temperatures of January, Spring will be here before we know it as we brace ourselves for summer and bare more skin. Cellulite is an extremely common condition that affects women of all shapes and sizes. It develops when fat cells protrude through the thin fibrous connective tissue that exists between the skin and the underlying muscle. With age, sun damage, and weight fluctuations, dimples and depressions in the skin will reveal more surface irregularities no matter how thin a person is. In order to correct cellulite, the fat must be reduced and the fibrous tissue that creates the dimpling in the skin must be loosened to enable the skin to appear flat and smooth. The skin must then be tightened.

The VASERsmooth procedure accomplishes all of these things with one device. Other treatments currently on the market such as Endermologie, Accent RF (a radio frequency device to tighten the skin), Elixis, Thermage as well as Coolsculpt to reduce the fat, only attack a single aspect of cellulite. VASERsmooth is designed to melt superficial fat, break the dimpling fibers, and tighten the skin. It is a one-time treatment performed under local anesthesia in the office. Patients can return to work the next day and results can be seen in as little as 2 weeks. Its main competition is the slightly older Cellulaze laser which is a revision of the Smartlipo device. Unfortunately, we have found the Cellulaze laser to lack in potency, safety, and efficacy compared to the ultrasonic energy in VASERSmooth. This is the hot new technology that is for the first time delivering significant and consistent results in the battle against cellulite. Go to to find out more about this exciting treatment.
