Is SculpSure appropriate or ALL areas of the body?
SculpSure was initially designed to target excess fat on the abdomen, waist and flanks (love handles).
These areas are traditionally parts of the body that often hold onto fat cells. These areas can be stubborn
and resistant to fat reduction through diet and exercise alone. This is sometimes known as “fit fat”.
Other areas of the body that are hard to tone and eliminate fat are: the inner/outer thigh, the bra line, the knees and arms can
also be targeted and will be treated with SculpSure.
How long does a SculpSure treatment take?
A single SculpSure treatment requires only 25 minutes. The advanced applicator enables simultaneous treatment
of either flanks or the entire abdomen in one session for some patients. With other technologies, these areas can
require longer treatment times. Some patients who wish to have more areas treated may have treatments back to back.
When are results from SculpSure typically seen?
images (2)SculpSure works by having your body
safely naturally and painlessly absorb and metabolize unwanted fat cells that have been heated and destroyed
by SculpSure’s laser. The contour of the treated area will improve slowly as the fat cells are absorbed.
Some patients begin to see results in as little as 3-6 weeks, but best results become clear in 8-12 weeks for most patients.
Some patients will require a second treatment that is done at 8 weeks.
How safe is SculpSure?
SculpSure is the first and only FDA-approved laser treatment for non-invasive body contouring of the abdomen and flanks.
The treatment does not have the same risks, side effects or complications that can be associated with liposuction or other surgical procedures.
Is there downtime with the Sculpsure procedure?
images (3)There is minimal, if any, downtime with SculpSure. This is a non-invasive and comfortable treatment.
Patients report experiencing only a mild warming sensation during the treatment. No significant side-effects or complications
have been reported. There is virtually no downtime. Patients return to all normal activities immediately. Patients will sometimes
report a mild cramping feeling after the treatment that is short-lived. Some patients say they feel like they attended an intense abdominal
workout class or the day after an abdominal SculpSure treatment.
Are the effects from SculpSure permanent?
SculpSure effectively removes excess and unwanted fat cells from the abdomen and flanks. Once these fat cells are destroyed and
absorbed by the body, they cannot reappear. Weight gain, however, can cause remaining fat cells to grow larger. This occurs with overall
weight gain if patients change their exercise habits for the worse after a SculpSure treatment. This can undermine the results of the SculpSure treatment.
It is important for all patients undergoing body contouring procedures to maintain a stable weight and to avoid weight gain. This will ensure long lasting results.
Who is SculpSure right for?
9873991_GSculpSure is ideal for patients who are otherwise healthy and report with trouble spots, particularly those that seem resistant to diet and
exercise. These are often the waist and abdomen. This is considered “fit fat”. Patients with good skin tone will have the best result.
How many treatments are needed?
Every patient is different. A customized SculpSure treatment plan will be created based on body type, overall health and goals.
Some patients will only need one treatment and many will need two to meet the desired goals.
ssWhat should patients expect during the SculpSure treatment?
Most patients feel a tingling sensation intermittently throughout the treatment which is generally well-tolerated. Patients describe this as a
dull ache. The practitioner is with the patient during the entire 25 minutes to ensure safety.
How long before patients can resume normal activities?
There is no downtime with SculpSure. Patients can resume regular activity immediately. This is an ideal treatment for lunchtime!
What is the difference between fat loss and weight loss?
The number of fat cells stored in the human body remains constant throughout life. As patients lose weight, the size of the fat cells become smaller.
They do not, however, decrease in number. It is a common scenario that patients have difficulty losing weight in trouble areas (abdomen, waist, etc).
After a SculpSure treatment, fat cells that are targeted and treated are permanently destroyed.

“I haven’t had a flat stomach since my first son.”
“For the last year or so, I just can’t get back to the body I used to have.”
“I exercise a lot, and I watch what I eat. Will I ever look like me again?”
These are common complaints heard by a host of women following a pregnancy. As is well known, women’s bodies can change dramatically after having a baby, whether it be the first child or the latest, and it can be a source of anxiety for those who aren’t ready to trade their figure in for motherhood. The reality is that most women’s bodies are significantly affected, and that having a baby is not a trifle.
This can be looked at in one of three ways:
- Glass Half-Full – “This is my new body, and I accept it.”
- Glass Half-Empty – “I will never be happy with how I look.”
- The Alternative View (which we’ll call “Glass Refilled”) – “I am actively going to change my body to look the way I want it to.”
For those who choose option #3, let us say: bravo.
If you are one of the women in the last category, you may be wondering: “What are my options?” There are many techniques to help bodies return to their former glory, varying in efficacy, price, and severity. Done concurrently, these processes are known by the general term “Mommy Makeover” — that is, a series of procedures that alter a woman’s figure post-pregnancy. In this post, we’re going to explore the most popular and the most successful.
One of the main concerns of women after pregnancy — and especially after breastfeeding — is that of sagging breasts. Unfortunately, there is a large genetic component at play, and with most, this is something that can’t be helped. While activities such as light weight lifting or purchasing new supportive bras can help in the short term, most women will only return to their previous perkiness with some cosmetic assistance.*
There are two options for breast augmentation:
- Breast Augmentation via Liposuction – For select patients, there is the option to transfer fat, which is removed via liposuction, to the breasts, resulting in fuller, more natural breasts. The benefits are obvious — removing fat from areas where it isn’t wanted, and putting it in areas where it is sounds like a no-brainer. Consult your doctor to see if this procedure is right for you.
- Breast Lifts – This surgery excises loose skin and tissue, in order to create a tighter feel and a more youthful appearance, firming up the breasts, and maintaining a natural aesthetic.
- Breast Implants – Traditional implants will definitely firm up one’s breast by replacing lost volume and correcting asymmetry, as well as increasing the size.
The area most obviously affected by pregnancy is the stomach. After housing your child for nine months, the skin stretches, and fat accumulates in the core region, attaching itself to the love handle region, the hips, and the tummy. Cellulite, another genetic proclivity, can also affect this area, and no amount of sit-ups or dieting can substantially alter this.
- Tummy Tuck – Also known as an abdominoplasty, tummy tucks are a major surgery designed to remove excess skin and tissue, all while strengthening and tightening the abdominal wall. The procedure, when done properly, will hide the scarring as best as possible, though some residual scarring will most likely be visible.
- “Mini Tummy Tuck” – The mini-abdominoplasty, or “mini tummy tuck”, is substantially less invasive,than an and gives wonderful results in most patients. Another advantage: it costs significantly less. It involves the procedure known as smart liposuction — liposuction done with laser — which is less invasive and less traumatic. It tightens skin, has a faster recovery period, and is performed under local anesthesia.

Out of a study from the University of British Columbia comes an interesting finding regarding the use of botulinum toxin (such as BOTOX) and addressing eyebrow asymmetry:
Botulinum toxin Type A (BoNT-A) has a history of use to correct eyebrow height asymmetry, with the common belief that it works by inactivating the brow depressors. It has also been assumed that deeper injections of BoNT-A would amplify the effect. However, a new study by researchers at the University of British Columbia, in Vancouver, Canada, suggests that therapeutic benefit is not correlated with injection depth. The paper, just published in Dermatologic Surgery, was based on a prospective study of women with eyebrow asymmetry.
Study authors performed split-face BoNT-A injections on 23 women with the condition. The amount of drug and locations of the injections were identical on both sides, with deep injections administered on the side where increased brow lift was needed. Brow height was evaluated and photographed at the time of baseline injection and at four weeks post injection.
The analysis showed no significant difference in the change in brow height over four weeks between the sides that had deep versus shallow injections. The researchers believe that the diffusion of BoNT-A between muscle layers precludes accurate targeting of the muscle belly, where the drug would theoretically have the most effect.
The lead author, Dr. Jason Sneath, M.D., F.R.C.P.C., told Cosmetic Surgery Times that “although we had not documented that a deeper injection was more effective, we presumed that delivering more botulinum toxin to the belly of the corrugators might weaken these muscles to a greater extent, thereby allowing the brow elevating frontalis to lift the medial brow more.” Dr. Sneath added that “while (these findings) may change the practice of some practitioners who have utilized this technique, we believe (they) also add to our understanding of the ability of botulinum toxin to diffuse into muscles after injection.”
