Post-Ozempic Body Contouring

Conveniently located to serve the areas of Mountain View, San Jose and Carmel, CA

Post-Ozempic body contouring is designed to resolve some of the many cosmetic issues patients can experience after losing a significant amount of weight. Semaglutide (Ozempic, Wegovy) can produce incredible results for patients’ health, but sometimes, volume-loss issues such as “Ozempic face” and “Ozempic butt” are inevitable.

While many may achieve the best results with surgical interventions that involve fat and skin removal, some do not wish to go through the downtime or discomfort of invasive procedures. Luckily, many minimally and non-invasive treatments are advanced enough to resolve crepey, lax skin, and smaller pockets of fat that could be obscuring your newly-attained silhouette.

At Wunderbar Medspa, we meet our patient’s goals using state-of-the-art technology and the skills of a highly trained team of experienced aesthetic providers. We have a proven track record of providing exceptional results for thousands of patients, upholding a high standard of care at our three locations in San Jose, Mountain View, and Carmel.

How the Body Changes After Weight Loss

Semaglutide-based weight-loss programs are a modern-day success story. Yet many men and women expecting transformative results after undergoing significant weight loss are surprised by the mixed cosmetic outcomes they attain. Depending on how much weight you lose and your age, your skin may not be able to retract to its original position, leaving behind an excess of loose, stretchy skin as the fat dissipates. As you lose weight, the fat cells do not go away, but they atrophy, and the skin loses this supportive connective tissue structure beneath it.

Studies have found that those who undergo weight-loss surgery experience a change in the structure of the skin. Strong, rigid collagen fibers can begin to degrade, leading to more collagen disorganization in the dermis, a deeper layer of the skin. The body then tends to overproduce elastin fibers, the connective protein fiber that allows for the skin’s stretchy quality. (1) 

Due to genetic or lifestyle factors, some patients struggle to lose weight in a certain area and attain their desired body shape. For example, younger women are more likely to store fat in their buttocks and thigh area, whereas men may accumulate it in the abdomen. Metabolic disorders and hormones have a huge impact on the way we store fat and the overall fat composition of our bodies. (2) Even with the help of Ozempic, many want to refine their weight loss results but are hesitant due to the invasive nature of most methods of fat removal.

Muscle composition is another aspect of health that many Ozempic patients may not consider as they continue to lose weight. Even with a normal BMI, sometimes, patients become “skinny-fat” or “metabolically obese” since they appear lean but have more fat in their bodies than what is considered healthy. This is why exercise is so important for those looking to lose more weight- it supports a strong body with quality muscle mass.

Non-Surgical Treatment Options

At Wunderbar Medspa, our professionals approach post-Ozempic issues with the understanding that non-surgical treatments can work wonders similar to invasive procedures. With knowledge of how the body ages and changes after weight loss, we can help you find a rejuvenation plan that suits you best, combining the most effective non-surgical procedures to formulate your unique treatment plan.


Morpheus8 is a microneedling device equipped with fine needles that transmit radiofrequency (RF) energy into the deep areas of the dermis. RF energy combined with microneedling stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential for youthful-looking skin. This leads to improved skin texture, tone, and overall quality. Over several sessions, patients can enjoy a reduction in:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles 
  • Mild jowling 

What Happens During a Morpheus8 Treatment Session?

First, your skincare specialist will give you topical or local anesthesia to completely numb the treatment area. Then, they will apply the device directly onto the skin, applying one “stamp” before moving to an adjacent area. Your specialist will customize your procedure so that the needles will gently penetrate somewhere between 0.5 to 8 mm into the skin, adjusted to your skin thickness. The radiofrequency emitted through the needles is a low-level electromagnetic energy that translates to thermal energy within the dermis, contracting collagen fibers to promote more skin tightness. The needles themselves cause micro-injuries in the skin, provoking a boosted healing response and an influx of new collagen and elastin.

In addition to resolving these issues, Morpheus8 can also gradually improve:

  • Hyperpigmented lesions 
  • Acne scars 
  • Stretch marks
  • Patches of rough or dull skin. 

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers like Juvéderm and Restylane are hyaluronic-acid based, meaning that they can help the skin attain more volume by attracting more water into the dermis. The skin itself already makes this all-natural compound, so injecting HA fillers only adds to the skin’s overall hydration. One of the greatest benefits is that if you are not pleased with the results, your injector can administer hyaluronidase, an enzyme that will quickly break down the compound.

Unlike its HA counterparts, Radiesse is a biostimulatory filler made from biocompatible calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres (CaHA). These microspheres provoke collagen and elastin production as the skin slowly metabolizes it, providing volumizing results that can last more than one year. It is a popular filler for hand rejuvenation, but it can also correct various signs of facial aging that can develop after weight loss.

Sculptra is another highly resilient and strong biostimulatory filler made of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a polymer that can last around twice as long as HA fillers.Due to the nature of Sculptra’s microspheres, your injector can utilize it in deep folds and other areas that could use more tissue volume, such as the buttocks and thighs.

If you are looking for the longest-lasting, collagen-based filler, consider consulting your injector on Bellafill. Studies have found that this particular filler can provide results for up to 5 years. (3) 


Coolsculpting is a popular choice for individuals seeking a less invasive approach to achieving their desired aesthetic goals. This cutting-edge technology works by precisely delivering controlled cooling to the targeted areas, effectively crystallizing and destroying the fat cells without causing damage to the surrounding tissues. Your specialist will apply a topical numbing gel to the treatment area and apply cool temperatures of around 14 degrees Fahrenheit to freeze and damage fat cells. As a result, your metabolism will remove these cells and rid your body of these unwanted fat deposits.

EmSculpt NEO 

With EmSculpt Neo, you can non-invasively sculpt away fat and build real muscle at the same time. For this treatment, your specialist will simply place the device’s applicators on the treatment area with no anesthesia. These applicators will then emit pulses of both radiofrequency (RF) and high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM) energy to contract muscle fibers. Patients often describe feeling vibration, pulsating, and warm sensations, but it is not painful whatsoever. In just a 20 to 30-minute session, EmSculpt Neo’s low-level electrical currents can stimulate up to 20,000 muscular contractions. Your specialist can apply the applicators to the abdomen, buttocks, legs, or upper arms and help you attain more refined contours and muscle definition after weight loss.

Hormone Replacement Therapy 

Hormones influence your weight, body composition, metabolism, and overall health. Age can also be a factor; hormonal changes in menopause for women and andropause for men can not only cause weight gain, but they can cause chronic low energy, mood swings, sleep problems, and sexual dysfunction. To help encourage further weight loss and/or relieve these symptoms related to aging, we can incorporate bioidentical hormones into your post-Ozempic treatment plan. These are hormones that are molecularly identical to naturally produced hormones. HRT for women typically consists of a regime to restore more balanced estrogen and progesterone levels, whereas HRT for men includes testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) to help patients regain youthful vitality.

Personal Consultation

During your consultation with one of our aesthetic professionals, they will speak with you about the specific post-weight-loss concerns that you would like to address. They will note your concerns and goals and give you an accurate idea of the results you can attain with our treatments. They will take a thorough look at the extent of your weight loss changes and make recommendations that can help restore skin plumpness and slimmer contours to your physique.
