Considering non-invasive body contouring in NW Indiana and Chicago?
*Your results will vary.
Non-invasive body contouring is a safe and effective procedure if it is performed by board certified Plastic Surgeon Doctor Jason Petrungaro and his highly trained staff. Beware of other physicians posing as body contouring specialists, for they lack the training and the insight to achieve the results patients want. Much more than just turning on a machine, non-invasive body contouring requires a subtle touch and an artist’s eye to produce beautiful, smooth results. Residents of Northwest Indiana and Chicago who are considering non-invasive body contouring should choose Doctor Jason Petrungaro, a board certified Plastic Surgeon who is highly skilled in this procedure and is dedicated to achieving the specific body contours you agreed upon in the preoperative consultation.
What is Non-Invasive Body Contouring?
Non-invasive body contouring refers to the process of treating fatty deposits, cellulite, and loose skin on the body using FDA-approved machines to destroy fat cells, break up cellulite, and tighten skin. These treatments are done in the office and require no incisions, hence the term “noninvasive.” The treatments are pain-free, scar-free, and require no noticeable healing time or time away from work or family duties. There are many different options on the market, but only a few machines can reliably and legitimately deliver these results. Petrungaro Plastic Surgery is proud to offer the most innovative and reliable machines available today, the VelaShape.
What is the difference between non-invasive body contouring and traditional surgery?
Traditional body contouring surgeries such as liposuction, tummy tucks, and thigh lifts all require incisions. This is what makes them “invasive.” Traditional surgeries also produce wounds that need to heal, scar tissue that needs to fade, and they require anywhere from a few days to a few weeks off work or away from family duties. As mentioned, non-invasive body contouring procedures can be done in the office and do not include any of the side effects mentioned for traditional surgery.
What areas can be treated using non-invasive body contouring?
Much like traditional liposuction, non-invasive body contouring procedures target fat deposits, cellulite, and loose skin in areas that typically don’t respond well to exercise such as:
- Upper arms
- Back & flanks
- Abdomen and waist
- Calves & ankles
- Chest (male breasts)
- Hips & buttocks
- Neck & chin
Who is a candidate for non-invasive body contouring?
This procedure is for men or women who have localized areas of resistant fat deposits on their body, mild loose skin, and/or cellulite that they cannot get rid of through diet and exercise. You are a good candidate for this procedure if:
- You can lie flat either on your back or belly for up to 1 hour
- You are at or near your ideal weight
- You do not anticipate any future large fluctuations in weight (specifically weight gain)
- You have a realistic expectation of surgical results
It is important to realize that, much like liposuction, non-invasive body contouring procedures do NOT result in significant weight loss. They are procedures designed to contour the body. Do not expect to lose a certain number of pounds after non-invasive body contouring. It is not intended to and does NOT treat obesity; however, it can be a solution that addresses unsightly fat deposits, loose skin, and cellulite in specific body areas that just won’t go away no matter how hard you work.

Types of non-invasive body contouring
Velashape – The VelaShape works through a combination of light vacuum suction coupled with infrared and radio frequency heat generation to achieve skin tightening, cellulite reduction, and some mild fat reduction. The infrared light heats the tissues up to 3 millimeters in depth, the radio frequency heats tissue up to 15 millimeters in depth, and the vacuum system ensures precise delivery of energy. The combination of infrared and vacuum-coupled radio frequency technologies causes deep heating of the fat cells, their surrounding connective fibrous septa (cellulite), and the underlying dermal collagen fibers. The end result is skin tightening, cellulite reduction, and fat reduction. VelaShape’s optimal electrode design coupled with vacuum allows for deeper and faster heat penetration. This in turn increases circulation, lymphatic drainage, cellular metabolism, and collagen depositing. In addition, extracellular matrix is remodeled due to the stimulation of fibroblast activity. The result: a localized circumference reduction and an overall improvement in skin structure and texture*.

Amazement with the Healing and General OutcomeMy highest regard, trust and respect for this surgeon. He delivered what he promised and changed the life and self esteem of this 66 yr. old. Office staff is the best and most helpful and watchful. Planning my next procedure and recommend him highly. Had a tummy tuck and my amazement is with the healing and general outcome because of his skill. I don’t believe Beverly Hills could have done better.
