SculpSure Q&A

by Vlad Nusinovich, MD

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is the first laser-based fat removal system approved by the FDA to target and destroy fatty deposits in the flanks and the belly. SculpSure uses highly focused energy, state-of-the-art medical lasers to zero-in on fat beneath the skin, breaking down fat cell walls and “liquefying” it so it can be removed by the body’s own waste disposal system. SculpSure requires no incisions and no anesthesia, and treatments are performed on an outpatient basis with no downtime, which means patients can resume their normal activities right away.

Is SculpSure the same as liposuction?

No, liposuction is a surgical procedure that requires incisions and anesthesia, as well as a period of recovery to allow the incisions and the treated area to heal. Liposuction also removes a larger amount of fat compared to SculpSure, which focuses on helping people with smaller areas of stubborn fat refine their profile so they look and feel firmer and trimmer.

What happens during a SculpSure treatment?

Dr. Nusinovich is skilled in the SculpSure treatment, which uses a special handheld device that rests on the skin and is passed over the treatment area. The device emits focused laser energy to precise depths of tissue where the fatty deposits are found. Most patients report mild tingling sensations during treatment, and each session lasts about 25 minutes. Multiple areas may be treated in one session, which extends the treatment time.

When will I see the results of my SculpSure treatment?

SculpSure results appear gradually as the body works to remove the fat cell debris that remains following treatment. In most cases, the first results are visible at about 6 weeks after treatment, with improvements continuing for another 6 weeks or so after which maximum results are visible.

How long do these results last?

SculpSure destroys fat cells, so the results of treatment are permanent. As with any fat-elimination treatment - including liposuction - patients still should follow a healthy diet and exercise program for the sake of their health and to avoid overall weight gain.

Is SculpSure a good choice for me?

SculpSure is nonsurgical, and it can be a great choice for many men and women, including those who have lost a lot of weight but still have areas of fat that simply haven’t responded to diet and exercise. This treatment also works well for those who simply want to look trimmer and firmer. Scheduling an office visit is the first step in determining whether SculpSure is the best and most appropriate approach for you to get rid of stubborn fat.
