Body Shaping Vs Body Slimming: Are They The Same?

Body Slimming singapore

What is the difference between body shaping and body slimming? Choosing the right treatment could go a long way in shaping the ideal body that you desire! For instance, body shaping surgery could yield different results as compared to non-surgical body slimming. Read on to find out more about body shaping treatment versus body slimming in Singapore, as well as a body contouring clinic in Singapore.   

What is Body Shaping?

Body shaping is the reduction of body fat in specific areas, resulting in a contoured body shape. By using non-invasive or surgical treatments to remove excess fatty deposits under your skin, you can get that body shape you’ve always dreamt of. In the process, loose and saggy skin can also be firmed or tightened. Due to exposure or natural aging our skin starts to become looser. Skin tightening treatments help to tighten the skin resulting in a more defined-looking and attractive body. 

It’s possible to shape our body through the removal of fat in areas such as thighs, flank, abdomen, arms, back, chin area, and “banana rolls” – the pocket of fat just below our buttocks.

How does Body Shaping Work?

For body shaping procedures, there are treatments that fall under body shaping surgery, versus non-surgical treatments. 

Under non-surgical treatments, there is CoolSculpting, which doesn’t require downtime, and uses cryolipolysis to freeze and destroy fat cells. Vanquish is also a popular option. It utilizes thermal energy of non-contact selective radio frequency waves to destroy fat cells. 

There are also skin tightening treatments such as Exilis, HIFU, and Radio Frequency. Exilis uses a combination of radio frequency and ultrasound energy to penetrate the skin together, and heat up the deeper tissue beneath the skin. This stimulates collagen and tightens elastin fibres, which then tightens saggy skin. Radio frequency treatments use RF energy to heat skin tissues to stimulate collagen fibres and fibroblast cells. Subsequently, this produces new collagen and elastin fibres, which then tighten and rejuvenate the skin. 

At Eeva, our clinic offers the LinearFirm HIFU Body Contouring, the world’s first LinearFirm Technology, and is KFDA approved. As a non-invasive treatment with no downtime, many patients apply this treatment for tummy fat reduction, bra fat removal, thigh slimming, and bra fat removal. HIFU utilizes thermal energy generated from high-intensity focused ultrasound to tighten the skin. This thermal effect penetrates into the skin to stimulate collagen production in the collagen-rich (SMAS) layer, to tighten it. 

Another medical grade solution offered under Eeva’s body contouring treatment program is the Venus Legacy Body Contouring, which is FDA-approved. Similarly, as it is non-invasive with no downtime, this treatment is suitable for belly fat reduction, arm slimming, thigh slimming, and skin tightening. It is capable of smoothening of lumpy dense cellulite coupled with circumferential fat reduction, followed by skin tightening to create a svelte silhouette. 

Under surgical treatments, there are options such as liposuction, abdominoplasty, and bariatric surgery. However, our doctors at Eeva only recommend non-invasive and safe treatments as surgical treatments have surgical risks with a painful recovery process and long downtime. On the other hand, non-invasive treatments have none or minimal pain, visible and permanent results, with no scarring and no downtime. Check out our body shaping prices here. 

What is Body Slimming?

In Singapore, body slimming is a more general term that could refer to a wide range of treatments. Typically, it may refer to lifestyle changes such as exercises, eating habits, or weight loss medications to decrease body weight. During weight loss, the number of fat cells in our body remain unchanged. They only get bigger when we gain weight and decrease in size when we lose weight. Most of the time, exercise may be ineffective and hence going for a medical grade solution may be a more comfortable, cost-effective, yet result-oriented solution. 

How does Body Slimming Work?

At Eeva, the Venus Legacy Cellulite Treatment is particularly suited for you as a non-surgical body slimming option if you have not been able to reduce cellulite despite a healthy lifestyle and diet. Our lady doctors will create a personalized and comprehensive treatment protocol which is tailored to your needs. As an Israeli technology which is also FDA-approved, it is non-invasive with no downtime required. 

If you are not looking to remove cellulite, but still want to get rid of stubborn pockets of fats on certain parts of your area, for instance your tummy, thighs, or arms, you should opt for the Eeva Clinical Fat Reduction Treatment Program, which involves localized non-surgical fat removal. Under this program, our doctors will assess your body concerns and opt for the Venus Legacy Fat Reduction or the LinearFirm HIFU Fat Reduction. Both treatments are very comfortable with no downtime, and may even involve the massage of customized body ampoules for enhanced cellulite removal, fat breakdown, lymphatic drainage or skin firming results. 


The above mentioned treatments each have their own respective benefits, depending on your body concern and your preference. If you are looking for a body contouring clinic in Singapore with positive customer reviews, medical-grade solutions, and most importantly warm and personable doctors, do head down to Eeva Medical Body Clinic, where all our treatment programs are designed by Singapore-certified Medical Doctors.
