in Newport Beach, CA

On the subject of sculpting, legend has it the famed Renaissance artist Michelangelo once said, “I saw the angel inside the marble and carved until I set him free.”

At Bonakdar Aesthetics, our Newport Beach body sculpting procedures free the toned, beautiful angel inside you… only, without all the carving! Our founder, Dr. Monica Bonakdar, dedicated more than 20 years to finding and mastering the world’s most effective non-surgical body sculpting techniques. Let her help you mold your body into a work of art, safely and without long recovery times.

Schedule a consultation with Dr. Bonakdar to learn which of the following body sculpting treatments may be right for you.

What is Body Sculpting?

Body sculpting is an umbrella term typically used to refer to non-surgical (or minimally invasive) treatment options that reshape your body through various means.

Along with body contouring procedures (which are similar but typically slightly more invasive), these exciting treatments can tighten skin, remove stubborn body fat, add volume and reshape your body without the downtime of traditional plastic surgery.

Dr. Monica Bonakdar spent years evaluating different body sculpting treatments to make sure she offers only solutions that work for her patients. She offers body sculpting options like CoolSculpting, CoolMini, and Emsculpt NEO to non-surgically reduce fat, tone skin, and build muscle.

Re-shape with PHYSIQ in Newport Beach, CA

PHYSIQ is body contouring without surgery or downtime: a non-invasive treatment that works for all body types.

PHYSIQ provides both fat reduction and muscle production. Running up to four applicators at once means you can attack those stubborn areas with variable stimulation at the same time. PHYSIQ provides a comfortable, hands-free treatment. There is no pain and no downtime. Our Newport Beach, CA PHYSIQ experts are here to help you achieve a more beautiful version of yourself.


No, it’s one of the safer body contouring applicators and patients report that it’s comfortable. Physiq provides muscle stimulation and light heat. You may feel sore afterwards, like you would after a good workout.

The exact price does vary. Pricing is based on which areas are being addressed, how much fat needs to be reduced, and how many sessions you will need. We recommend getting a consultation with Dr. Bonakdar and her team of experts. They will go over a treatment plan that is right for you.

It does not replace a proper balanced diet or exercise. PHYSIQ is a new type of body treatment. Using up to four applicators to help address areas that exercise and diet were not enough for.

Yes, Dr. Bonakdar and her patients have reported that it’s well worth it.

Emsculpt NEO

Ok! Let’s do 20,000 contractions in 30 minutes… and, go! (No, seriously. Don’t try this at home.) Your conscious mind can’t compel your muscles to activate at their true potential… but Emsculpt NEO can! Emsculpt NEO uses its high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM) to stimulate thousands of contractions of the target muscle groups per minute. Meanwhile, RF energy targets fat cells in the area to diminish stubborn fat while boosting collagen and elastin production. In a 30-minute session, you can improve muscle definition, reduce fat, and improve skin elasticity… all through a single treatment!

Emsculpt NEO FAQs

The Emsculpt NEO feels like an intense workout. The HIFEM setting is increased by the Emsculpt NEO Specialist during the course of the treatment. Some people feel the muscle contraction more than others. You may feel sore the next two days just like a regular workout. Most people continue with their normal exercise routine during the series of treatments.

Everyone’s body is different. Your Emsculpt NEO cost will vary depending on the number of sessions and target areas. Dr. Bonakdar’s team of certified Emsculpt NEO Specialist will give you an estimate for your treatment plan during your complimentary Emsculpt NEO consultation and demo treatment.

Emsculpt NEO’s HIFEM technology uses alternating patterns to induce powerful contractions that takes muscle beyond what is possible through physical training. These contractions lead to increased muscle mass, and the addition of Radio Frequency optimizes fat reduction and destroys fat cells. Emsculpt NEO takes your exercise routine and gives it an incredible boost. Patients report on average a 25% increase in muscle strength AND a 30% decrease in fat after using Emsculpt NEO.

It is. In fact, Realself users recently voted Emsculpt NEO onto the site’s “Most Worth It” list in 2020. More than 80% of Realself patients gave Emsculpt NEO a “worth it” rating.


CoolSculpting emerged more than a decade ago as a non-surgical alternative to traditional liposuction. Using a technique known as cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting targets stubborn subcutaneous fat, freezing these cells while protecting your skin and surrounding tissue.

Freezing the fat cells permanently damages them. Your body takes the damaged fat cells and removes them through a natural process called apoptosis. In the weeks and months following your CoolSculpting treatment, you’ll see a noticeable fat reduction in each area where you’ve had CoolSculpting.

CoolSculpting FAQs

It is difficult to quote the average CoolSculpting cost because everyone’s body is different. The exact price for your treatment will vary depending on which areas are being treated, how much fat needs to be addressed, and how many sessions are needed. For this reason, we recommend a complimentary consultation. During your consultation for body sculpting Newport Beach cosmetic dermatology expert, Dr. Bonakdar, and her team of certified CoolSculpting technicians will give you a complete Treatment to Transformation quote for your desired goals.

You will feel an intense cold during the first few minutes of treatment, but your body will quickly numb to the sensation. Some patients experience some redness following treatment, but it typically goes away quickly. Dr. Bonakdar uses new generation CoolSculpting Advantage devices, so the treatment lasts only 35 minutes instead of an hour. Most patients read books or watch TV during their treatments without discomfort.

CoolSculpting is not a substitute for proper diet and exercise, and it is not a weight-loss treatment. CoolSculpting effectively targets stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to traditional diet and exercise. CoolSculpting can reduce fat in treatment areas by 20-25% each session. These effects stack over multiple sessions.

Yes, according to Dr. Bonakdar, her patients, and RealSelf patients. CoolSculpting has a “worth it” rating of 73%. It is one of Dr. Bonakdar’s favorite treatments for the removal of stubborn body fat. With two CoolSculpting Advantage devices, DualSculpting (or treatment of two body areas at the same time) speeds up your treatment time.


Introducing CoolMini: CoolSculpting’s powerful little cousin!

CoolMini goes where regular CoolSculpting cannot. It reduces persistent body fat around the chin and in other small places that are hard for traditional CoolSculpting to reach, like the neck, bra fat, knees, and ankles. Because the target areas are smaller, CoolMini is an affordable and versatile body sculpting option for patients who want to slim down their features without surgery.

CoolMini FAQs

Like CoolSculpting, CoolMini protects the outer layers of the skin while freezing subdermal fat through cryolipolysis. You may feel an initial sensation of cold, but you will quickly grow numb to it. Some patients experience tingling or redness following treatment, but these effects resolve themselves quickly. Patients do not need sedation for CoolMini treatments and can resume their normal activities immediately after treatment.

Just like CoolSculpting, It is difficult to quote the average CoolMini cost because everyone’s body is different. The exact price for your treatment will vary depending on which areas are being treated, how much fat needs to be addressed, and how many sessions are needed. For this reason, we recommend a complimentary consultation. During your consultation, Dr. Bonakdar and her team of certified CoolMini technicians will give you a complete Treatment to Transformation quote for your desired goals.

CoolMini specifically targets areas of the body that are difficult to treat with other methods, and that includes diet and exercise. While you can undoubtedly find workouts that target your arms and legs, it is more challenging to use exercise alone to remove fat from under the chin, the bra fat, and around the knees. CoolMini can reduce fat in these areas by more than 20-25% following a single treatment. It could take months or even years to get the same results through diet and exercise, if at all.

More than half of patients on Realself say CoolMini is worth it. Dr. Bonakdar agrees! In her capable hands, CoolMini can transform your look and give you better definition along your limbs and jawline. It can also be used with CoolSculpting as part of a full body sculpting package.
