Non-Surgical Procedures

Body Contouring: Sculpsure™

SculpSure™ is a non-invasive fat reduction treatment that utilizes laser technology to break down fat cells and decrease unwanted body fat by up to 25 percent. It effectively targets fat in different areas of the body, including the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, lower back, chest, and arms.

In addition to fat cell reduction, this laser treatment also stimulates collagen remodeling for tighter skin. It can help tone flabby arms and buttocks, tighten the abdominal area, reduce flank bulges, and eliminate stubborn fat pockets that are particularly resistant to diet and exercise.

Reasons to undergo this procedure

Excess body fat is usually a result of improper diet, sedentary lifestyle habits, medical conditions, or genetics. Diet and exercise can be effective in removing those fat stores, but for those with certain bulge areas that are resistant to fitness or dietary changes, laser treatments offer an effective alternative option.

SculpSure™ provides patients with a non-invasive body sculpting solution that delivers quick results with virtually no downtime. The procedure addresses the following:

  1. Lower abdominal pouch and “love handles”
  2. Flabby arms
  3. Armpit fat
  4. Thick thighs and buttocks
  5. Chest fat or “man boobs”

What are the benefits?

SculpSure™ combines fat reduction and skin tightening to ensure a toned and sculpted appearance while reducing the risk of unwanted loose skin. This breakthrough laser technology can eliminate up to 25% of your excess body fat by targeting subcutaneous fat cells, which are naturally eliminated from the body within several weeks.

Laser treatments must be performed by a licensed medical professional for best results. Dr. Jacob Sedgh is a double-board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, which qualifies him to safely and successfully perform or supervise all invasive and non-invasive procedures.

This treatment offers the following results:

  1. Reduced fat deposits
  2. Slimmer appearance
  3. Tighter, firmer skin

The

Initial Consultation

During your initial consultation with Dr. Sedgh, he will listen to what you would like to achieve with your SculpSure™ treatment, assess your areas of concern, and explain the details of the procedure. This will allow him to determine whether you are a good candidate for the treatment and provide you with the estimated number of sessions needed to achieve your desired result. Most patients only require one session per area, but the total number of sessions will vary depending on the patient’s area of concern and the level of fat reduction and toning needed to reach their specific body sculpting goals.

Consultations usually consist of the following:

  1. Interview and assessment of medical history
  2. Comprehensive physical examination
  3. Discussion of the procedure

Dr. Sedgh can also conduct initial consultations via video conferencing for patients who cannot come in for an in-office meeting.

SCULPSURE™ PROCEDURE

The SculpSure™ treatment is completely non-invasive with minimal discomfort, meaning it does not require anesthetic creams. Before the treatment can begin, you will be asked to sit in a reclining chair to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. The Sculpsure™ harness will then be positioned on the targeted body part. The harness can accommodate four applicator heads, which are clipped securely to the harness. Each of these applicator heads are about the size of a regular smartphone and can be used to treat different areas simultaneously, allowing the machine to target a much larger surface, such as the abdomen, lower back, or chest, in one stroke.

Once the machine is switched on, it will begin sending laser energy deep into the tissues to target your fat cells. This is usually accompanied by a warm sensation, which is the fat being heated to a temperature of 42 °C or 107.6 °F to safely and effectively destroy these cells without damaging other tissues. The patient may feel a strong heating sensation during the first several minutes of the treatment, but this will eventually alternate from warm to cool in 30-second cycles to ensure the patient’s comfort and to protect the skin throughout the entire process.

This treatment lasts approximately 25 minutes.

RECOVERY

SculpSure™ non-surgical body contouring is a quick and simple outpatient procedure with literally no downtime, allowing patients to resume their daily activities on the same day of the treatment. Immediately after the session, the treated body part may appear pinkish or reddish, and the affected muscles may feel slightly sore. In some cases, SculpSure™ sessions that involve larger treated areas or multiple treatments may also require over-the-counter medication to help manage any post-treatment pain or discomfort.

The body will naturally eliminate the melted body fat over the next few weeks, so patients should see gradual results within a period of 6 to 12 weeks. Throughout this process, Dr. Sedgh will personally follow up with you to observe your progress and ensure a positive post-treatment experience.

Once the full results have become apparent, you can proceed with a second body contouring session (if recommended by your doctor) for even better results.
