Body Contouring Q & A
What is body contouring?
Body contouring is a general term that refers to both surgical and nonsurgical procedures that are specially designed to remove or reduce stubborn pockets of fat to contour different areas of your body.
Nonsurgical body contouring can also be called nonsurgical fat reduction. There are a number of nonsurgical body contouring treatments available, with laser lipolysis systems like SculpSure being the most effective and convenient.
Body sculpting, on the other hand, generally refers to a wide range of cosmetic plastic surgery procedures designed to reshape and enhance the appearance of your body and remove fat. In many cases, the terms body sculpting and body contouring are used interchangeably.
What is SculpSure?
The SculpSure FDA-approved laser system targets and destroys your problem fat cells without the need for more traditional invasive procedures such as liposuction, which carry more downtime and additional risks.
SculpSure isn’t necessarily a weight-loss tool. It’s a fat reduction tool that can shape your body. You have a certain number of fat cells when you’re born, and that number remains constant. When you lose or gain weight, these fat cells decrease or increase in size but not in quantity.
During a SculpSure treatment, Dr. Simmons or Dr. Trench-Simmons delivers laser energy just under the surface of your skin, without damaging any of your surrounding tissue. The laser energy heats up and destroys the fat cells and the remains of these destroyed and damaged cells are processed and eliminated through your body’s natural lymphatic system. New cells don’t regenerate, and you’ll permanently have a reduced number of fat cells in your target area.
What areas does SculpSure treat?
SculpSure can reduce fat in multiple different areas, including:
- Love handles
- Inner and outer thighs
- Under your chin
After your initial consultation, you receive a personalized treatment plan based on the areas you’re interested in tackling. In many cases, a series of treatments help achieve optimal results.
One SculpSure treatment usually lasts around 25 minutes, and you can continue your normal activities immediately afterwards. Results happen over time and start around six weeks after treatment when your body eliminates the damaged fat cells. This process can take up to three months.
Is SculpSure safe?
SculpSure is a noninvasive and nonsurgical procedure that carries virtually no risk. During the treatment, you might experience some heat, but most people find this perfectly tolerable. Since SculpSure is nonsurgical, it doesn’t pose the many risks and unwanted side effects of surgery.
