Thanks to slim­ming new treat­ments from Chicago doc­tors, get­ting your ul­ti­mate beach bod just got a whole lot eas­ier.

Rock­ing a bathing suit after months of win­ter lay­er­ing can be daunt­ing, but two Windy City physi­cians are aim­ing to change that. Plas­tic sur­geon Dr. Steven Bloch of Body by Bloch (1160 Park Ave. W., No. 2E, High­land Park, 847432-0840; body­by­bloch.com) sug­gests Ul­trashape Power, an Fda-ap­proved ul­tra­sound de­vice that tar­gets fat in those hard-to-lose places, for pa­tients who ex­er­cise and eat well but are still 10 to 20 pounds over­weight. The non-in­va­sive pro­ce­dure is ad­min­is­tered in a series of three treat­ments spaced two weeks apart, and is es­pe­cially ef­fec­tive on the stom­ach. “In one treat­ment you can treat both the up­per and lower ab­domen very evenly and ef­fec­tively,” says Bloch.

But what about pesky cel­lulite you just can’t get rid of? De­signed by Dr. Dan Krochmal of MAE Plas­tic Surgery (1535 Lake Cook Road, Ste. 211, North­brook, 847-205-1680; mae plas­tic­surgery.com), Cel­lulite Rig­o­tomy and Fat Trans­fer (CRAFT) ad­dresses the crater-like dim­ples found on the but­tocks and up­per thigh area caused by a dense band “that has prob­a­bly been present since birth,” says Krochmal. “But, as you gain weight over time, or grav­ity starts to kick [in], you start to see the ef­fects.” Dr. Krochmal teases the cel­lulite band with a small nee­dle un­til it re­leases, then in­jects fat from an­other part of the body to bring vol­ume to the area with cel­lulite. “Women tend to like it be­cause they’re get­ting li­po­suc­tion in the tar­get ar­eas and smoother but­tocks,” says Krochmal. Did some­one say pool party?

With two in­no­va­tive new pro­ce­dures, ars. Steven Bloch and aan hrochmal are chang­ing the way Chicagoans fight cel­lulite and fat.
