When to Consider Nonsurgical Body Sculpting

Meeting your goal weight after months of making good food choices and getting regular exercise is a momentous occasion -- one that should make you feel overjoyed. 

However, even though you finally hit that magical number, you may be surprised to still struggle with jiggly pockets of fat and flab, which may dampen your joy.

A healthy diet and physical activity are the cornerstones of good health, but when it comes to getting a more perfect shape, diet and exercise may not be enough. 

But surgery is no longer your only option for getting rid of those stubborn pockets of fat. 

Our medical aesthetic specialist, Dr. Lena Speck Hopkins, understands the frustration you feel when diet and exercise can’t give you the body you want. That’s why we offer nonsurgical body sculpting with SculpSure® 

Is it time for you to consider nonsurgical body sculpting? 

About body sculpting

It may sound too good to be true, but it’s now possible to get rid of body fat for good without surgery or downtime. For nonsurgical body sculpting, we use SculpSure. 

This innovative body-contouring tool uses laser energy that targets the fat cells under your skin without heating or damaging any other cells or tissues. The heat from the laser dismantles the structural integrity of the fat cells, causing them to break down. 

Your body then removes these damaged fat cells over a period of time, eliminating them from your body through the lymphatic system. Once the fat cells are gone, they don’t come back. 

We can destroy up to 24% of fat in the treatment area during one 25-minute session.

When considering nonsurgical body sculpting, it’s important to have realistic expectations. We can get rid of unwanted fat and improve your shape, but our aesthetic treatment isn’t a replacement for a healthy diet and regular exercise. 

When to expect results

It takes your body a little time to get rid of those dismantled fat cells. However, you may see improvements in your shape about six weeks after your session and final results within 12 weeks. We find most of our patients get their desired with a series of SculpSure sessions.

Results are permanent as long as you continue to eat a healthy diet, get regular exercise, and maintain your weight. Fat cells don’t regenerate, but the remaining cells can grow in size if you consume more calories than you burn.

Are you looking for a way to get rid of unwanted body fat without surgery or downtime? Then it might be time to consider nonsurgical body contouring.
