What Is Body Contouring?

Do you try to exercise and prepare nutritious lunches every day? Maybe you spend endless late nights lifting weights, or maybe you prep food every Sunday but with no real changes. If this sounds like you, body contouring could be an excellent choice to complement your current fitness plan and healthy meal routines.

At Dr. Linda Sodoma Aesthetics and Gynecology, our team is pleased to offer body contouring and fat reduction using EMSCULPT NEO. EMSCULPT NEO is a noninvasive body-shaping treatment that utilizes high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to help strengthen muscle and simultaneously melt layers of fat.

Our Mesa, Tempe, and Scottsdale, AZ patients often use EMSCULPT NEO on areas, such as the torso, arms, and butt. Within one 30-minute session, EMSCULPT NEO contracts the muscle tissue around 20,000 times to build a more toned physique. Call Dr. Linda Sodoma in Gilbert, AZ to learn more about body contouring.

There are many benefits of body contouring with EMSCULPT NEO, including:

  • Effective fat reduction
  • Stimulation of muscle contractions for a more sculpted figure
  • Noninvasive and quick treatments
  • The ability to be used on various areas of the body, such as the stomach, legs, buttocks, and arms
  • Combined radiofrequency and high-intensity electromagnetic for two methods of therapy in one treatment session

Although this body contouring treatment has been helpful for people of virtually all ages, we have learned that it is a better fit for certain patients compared to others. When you have your consultation at Dr. Linda Sodoma Aesthetics and Gynecology, we can determine if you might be an excellent fit for this treatment. EMSCULPT NEO is typically recommended for individuals who:

  • Are near or at their ideal body weight
  • Have a body mass index of 30 or less
  • Have troublesome fat areas that won’t respond to exercise and diet
  • Wish to strengthen and tone their muscles
  • Would like a nonsurgical treatment


EMSCULPT NEO body contouring treatments are about 30 minutes and take place in one of our comfortable treatment rooms. During the sessions, you can sit down on a comfortable treatment table, and the EMSCULPT NEO handpiece is applied to the area of the body you would like to enhance.

You will be able to feel your muscle fibers contract as the EMSCULPT NEO transmits strong pulses to the specified area. Our staff will monitor you and adjust the intensity to ensure you remain comfortable. After your procedure, you might feel like you just achieved a hard workout.

After your EMSCULPT NEO body contouring session, you can return to your normal schedule without any needed downtime. Over the next 3 – 4 days, you will likely feel a little bit of soreness or discomfort within the targeted area on account of the strong muscle contractions induced by the procedure, somewhat similar to how you’d feel after a heavy workout. We advise you to abstain from exercising the treated area of the body for a short period. Some individuals could also develop slight irritation in the treated skin; however, this typically fades quickly. Follow-up sessions might be required to see optimal results, especially for more impressive changes. We generally advise four to five EMSCULPT NEO sessions separated 2 – 3 calendar days apart.
