Hi, I’m Dr. Theva and here at my Melbourne clinics in Glen Iris and Doncaster East, I have used Body Contouring treatments and other cosmetic treatments to help over 2400 clients reach their aesthetic goals. I would love to create the same natural-looking result for you.

Why Choose Dr. T’s Aesthetics For Your Body Contouring

When I first opened my practice, my goal was to provide a holistic approach to anti-aging and healthy living, to help clients look and feel their best.

This meant creating a clinic that was a ‘one-stop-shop’ that had a range of services to treat clients holistically rather than treating solely with single aesthetic treatments.

We have been working hard behind the scenes to establish this in our practice.

My passion is anti-ageing and helping clients achieve their aesthetic goals. I travel the world and dedicate my life to learning and discovering the latest and safest techniques, technologies and products to provide the most optimal outcomes.

I am one of Melbourne’s few medically qualified Aesthetic Physicians with over twelve years experience in the field of anti-ageing. I can recommend a greater range of combinations of treatments available to achieve your personal aesthetic goals.

Choosing the right practitioner

The main two types of technology in body contouring (body sculpting) are cooling technology and heat and radiofrequency. Any practitioner who performs body contouring should have extensive knowledge and experience of the different types of technology.

This lowers the risk of complications and undesirable outcomes. Unfortunately, too many clinics have inexperienced staff performing body contouring with varying degrees of experience. This raises serious safety concerns as well as the following issues for the clients:

  • If the right technology for a specific area is not used, an optimum result will not be achieved and abnormal side effects such as increased pain during treatment may occur.
  • Misinformed information may lead clients to believe this is a weight loss machine results, and therefore created disappointed expectations
  • Client’s needs, goals, and desires are not fully understood
  • A proper and thorough assessment process is not undertaken due to a lack of knowledge and experience. This can lead to clients receiving incorrect treatments, dissatisfying outcomes, and unknown long term effects
  • Heavy discounting as “hooks” to lure clients in, often compromising the quality of injectors and products, resulting in unsatisfactory outcomes, and unknown long term effects.

Here in my clinic, you can be rest assured you are in safe hands. I am a qualified doctor with over nine years of experience in this industry and am a certified expert in anatomy.

Highlights of Dr T’s TruSculpt Body Contouring Treatments

Clients want an optimum body shape. There are eight areas to treat. To achieve this optimum look, I need to know what which areas to treat.

The way I achieve this is by starting with a comprehensive consultation. I am able to identify the most accurate body contouring treatment (body sculpting) for an optimum outcome. This helps achieve your desired outcome, the first time.

The way it should be, minus the risks and safety concerns.

TruSculpt is a nonsurgical radio frequency device designed to sculpt and contour the body. On average, patients who’ve had this treatment have experienced an average of 24% reduction in fat thickness in a single treatment. It can decrease circumference and diminish unwanted fat pockets, revealing your new figure. It’s a safe, effective procedure with no surgery and no downtime.

Dr T’s Philosophy and Approach

I always believe in giving an absolutely natural result. I do not go beyond the point of looking natural and age-appropriate youthfulness.

After a full facial assessment together, I recommend a personalised treatment plan that balances what you want with what I recommend. I focus on treatments which will target your individual aesthetic concerns in the most efficient way possible whilst considering your budget and lifestyle.

I spend time understanding your concerns, goals, and desires and advise you on the best and safest procedures necessary to reverse and slow down the ageing process.

Finally, I discuss with you all your treatment options and then facilitate the decision-making process. I do not commence any treatment until you fully understand the process and outcomes for each stage of treatment.

I have been a doctor (GP) for twenty-eight years, twelve of which have been dedicated to the antiageing industry as a qualified cosmetic physician. My GP experience allows me to treat my clients on their internal as well as external well being.

To ensure a consistent approach across all my treatments, I developed My Optimal Antiageing Plan for life.

Other Common Body Contouring Treatment Questions

About TruSculpt treatments?

TruSculpt is the newest advancement in circumferential reduction and nonsurgical body sculpting. Offering up to 24% fat thickness reduction in a SINGLE treatment, the Trusculpt treatment in Melbourne attacks stubborn fat up to ½ an inch beneath the skin’s surface. The treatment works to heat the fat up to 45 degrees, therefore, destroying the fat cells, allowing the body to naturally expel them post-treatment.

Why is it so effective?

TruSculpt treatment in Melbourne utilises a “closed-loop” temperature feedback – the only system on the market to feature this mechanism.

What’s involved in a TruSculpt Treatment?

With most treatments taking under an hour, a TruSculpt session in Melbourne can be completed in your lunch break. With zero prep or downtown required, this anesthetic-free treatment is pain-free. The treatment of body contouring in Melbourne involves a handheld device which heats up against the skin to a comfortable temperature. The operator will lightly glide the device over the area being treated. Some patients have likened this sensation to a hot stone massage.

The benefits of this treatment in comparison to fat freezing technology and its competitors is that there is no downtime, no pain, and no sighted side-effects to date.

When will I see results?

After undergoing the procedure of Trusculpt in our Melbourne clinic, your body will work to rid itself of these newly destroyed fat cells. Your body’s immune system will work to break down these cells and flush them out. The rate of fat break-down after Trusculpt will vary from person to person. The circumferential reduction will be visible around 6-8 weeks post-treatment with the final results visible after 3 months.

Who is TruSculpt for?

While your consultation with your technician will ultimately determine your suitability, this device is recommended for those who suffer from stubborn fat pockets and “trouble spots.” For example, the TruSculpt shows to make significant improvements on those with excess fat on their stomachs and flanks – with an average of 24% fat loss shown on a group of women who participated in a recent study. Typically, appropriate patients have a BMI of less than 30.

What is TruSculpt treatments?

Dr Theva is proud to provide you with TruSculpt treatments! TruSculpt is a non-invasive, non-surgical way to reduce stubborn deposits of fat located anywhere on the body: arms, legs, and beneath the chin. TruSculpt, available since 2013, is the latest technology in fat and cellulite reduction as well as body contouring in Melbourne.

TruSculpt destroys fat cells without damaging the overlying skin, nerves, or blood vessels and other structures beneath the skin. TruSculpt uses week recognized radio frequency (RF) energy transmitted through the skin’s surface which contours, shapes and tightens the skin. It’s comfortable with no downtime. The TruSculpt handpiece is placed on the surface of the skin in the area to be treated. The RF pulse is applied which deeply heats the fat cell layer causing programmed fat cell destruction. The total procedure of Trusculpt in Melbourne takes about 30 minutes to treat each “I-Pad”-sized area of the body. Visible results can be seen in as little as four weeks with maximum results taking up to twelve weeks.

The recommended program is just one treatment to achieve up to 24% fat destruction in the treated area. By 12 weeks, it is recommended to achieve the optimum cosmetic result. TruSculpt has approval for body sculpting and fat reduction by the FDA and TGA. It also has achieved FDA 510k clearance and Health Canada approval for the heating of deep tissue and the temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite.

TruSculpt is approved and has received clearance in Europe with the CE Mark (and Australian RTG) for body sculpting, body contouring, circumferential reduction, and fat reduction.

How does TruSculpt in Dr T’s Melbourne clinic work?

Studies have demonstrated that the controlled heating of the fat cell layer in one treatment can result in up to 24% fat destruction in the treated area. The damaged fat cells are absorbed by your body over the course of 12 weeks and are eliminated by the body’s normal detoxification system resulting in a trimmer figure. There is no cutting or surgery involved.

Does this procedure of body contouring (body sculpting) in Dr T’s Melbourne clinic hurt?

The handpiece is constantly moving within the treatment area and causes a warm sensation at the treatment site. This treatment is well tolerated without the need for pain medication, anesthetics or cooling.

What areas can be treated?

Trusculpt can treat any area where fat deposits accumulate, such as under the arms, the neck (“turkey neck”), around the buttocks and thighs, back, love handles, on the abdomen, and beneath the bra strap. Multiple areas can be treated at a single session of Trusculpt in our Melbourne clinic.

How many treatments are needed? When will results be seen?

Although results can be seen after one treatment of body contouring in Melbourne, some patients may choose to repeat a treatment to achieve further improvement. Results can be seen 4 to 12 weeks after the initial treatment. Results typically are better when you follow our recommended treatment regimen.

Can Trusculpt treatment in Melbourne be used as a weight-loss technique?

TruSculpt is not designed for weight loss or a treatment for obesity. It is used to reduce the appearance of minor to moderate areas of diet and exercise-resistant fat deposits on the body, extremities and beneath the chin. Best results are seen in those who have a BMI of 30 or less. More fat can be removed with liposuction than with TruSculpt. So, TruSculpt can complement but is not a replacement for liposuction.

When can I return to normal activities? Are there any side effects? Is TruSculpt safe?

The TruSculpt procedure is designed to be predictable and well-tolerated. Side effects are limited to temporary redness, mild swelling, sweating and slight tenderness where treated. Usually, the side effects last only a few hours but may last up to 24 hours. You may return to your regular activities and work immediately after your Trusculpt treatment in Melbourne.

What does a TruSculpt treatment cost?

TruSculpt treatment’s cost varies based on the total surface area treated, the time it takes to treat that area, and the number of treatments needed. Please consult with our staff to receive an accurate fee estimate to achieve your goal.

Can anyone be treated?

In Melbourne, Trusculpt is for both men and women. All skin types and colours can be treated. People with heart pacemakers, cancer or malignant tumors in the treatment area and pregnant women should not be treated. Those who have certain metallic implants like copper IUDs and metal joint replacements may not be treated in the implanted areas but may be treated elsewhere on their body.

How do you prepare for a TruSculpt treatment?

There is no special preparation needed before TruSculpt body contouring and fat reduction treatment. Remove any jewelry or body piercings in the treatment area before treatment. The skin should be washed clean. Avoid using lotions or body creams on your skin before treatment. Other treatment options: Dr.Theva and our staff will review all options and fully answer your questions at your consultation.

NOTE: There is no substitute for the information you will receive at your one-on-one consultation with Dr. Theva and our staff. The specific risks and the suitability of this procedure for you can only be determined at that time. All procedures have some degree of risk. Minor complications that do not affect the outcome occur occasionally. Major complications are unusual. Most people are very happy with the results, but no specific result can be guaranteed.
