Spring has arrived with the realization that summer is right around the corner. If that thought makes you a little apprehensive about fitting your winter body into your summer clothing, now is the time to take action. At New Reflections Plastic Surgery, we offer a non-invasive body contouring treatment to sculpt your curves for summer without anesthesia or the need for a recovery period. Learn more about this revolutionary treatment to determine whether SculpSure is the right choice for you.

The Power of Laser

SculpSure harnesses the power of laser energy to trim focalized areas of fat and sculpt the body. Lasers have been used for many years in both the medical and cosmetic realms, offering effective procedures that are less invasive than traditional surgery. In the case of SculpSure, the laser energy is delivered beneath the skin’s surface directly to the unwanted areas of fat. The heat from the laser disrupts the fat cells, liquefying them so they can be eliminated through the body’s lymphatic system over time.

While the laser energy does a number on those stubborn fat pockets, it does not damaging the skin and tissue surrounding the treatment area. This means that you can enjoy a comfortable procedure without significant side effects or downtime. The results of SculpSure are both noticeable and long-lasting, even without the discomfort and recovery of a more invasive surgical procedure.

Treatment Options

The smaller applicators used during the SculpSure procedure allow for versatility in treating a number of different areas of the body:

  • Upper and lower back, including “bra fat”
  • Upper arms
  • Abdomen and waistline
  • Hips and flanks
  • Inner and outer thighs

Dr. Patel will listen to your concerns and your expectations for your results to determine whether SculpSure is the right treatment choice for you. Patients looking to reduce areas of fat by more than about 25 percent will either want to consider liposuction instead of SculpSure or more than one SculpSure treatment session to achieve their full results.

Procedure Lowdown

A SculpSure treatment session takes less than 30 minutes to complete and does not require any anesthesia. During your procedure, you will experience gentle cycles of heating and cooling that should be very tolerable and even comfortable. In fact, many of our patients are able to watch a video or read during their treatment.

Recovery and Results

After your procedure, you will be able to return to your regular activities right away. There are not typically any side effects after this treatment, so no one will know you just had a cosmetic procedure done. There are also no compression garments to wear after your procedure, like there often are with other types of body contouring treatments.

Your results of your SculpSure treatment will develop over time as the treated fat cells are eliminated. You will see the area become smoother and slimmer as the procedure takes effect. As long as you maintain your healthy weight after SculpSure, the results of your treatment will be permanent. If you decide you would like to see more slimming, you can schedule a second SculpSure treatment about six to 12 weeks after the first.
