When to Consider Body Contouring

If you’ve lost a lot of weight, congratulations! It’s not easy to shed pounds, especially when your weight-loss goals are substantial or aggressive. And now that you’ve reached your goal, you deserve a lot of applause for your success. It can be super empowering to get rid of excess pounds. Not only can you feel a lot more confident and comfortable in the way you look, but you can also decrease your risks for medical problems such as high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, and type 2 diabetes. 

After weight loss, it’s not uncommon to have some stubborn, isolated areas of fat linger behind, despite your absolute best efforts at eating healthy and working out. And that can leave you feeling like you’ve been robbed of your victory — not to mention a little discouraged about your overall results.

Fortunately, Jeffrey Miller, MD, and his expert team have a solution. It’s called WarmSculpting™ with SculpSure, and it’s a great way to melt away extra pounds in those stubborn areas, leaving you with the slimmer, sleeker contours you’re looking for. Here’s how it works.

Melt your fat away

WarmSculpting™ with SculpSure uses a special technique known as laser lipolysis — literally, fat destruction using lasers. In WarmSculpting™, laser energy targets fat cells in the deeper layers of tissue where they hide. As the energy penetrates fat cells, those cells heat up, and eventually (pretty quickly, actually), the cell walls dissolve, leaving liquefied fat behind. Over the next few weeks, your body carries off the fatty debris, metabolizes it, and then eliminates from your body naturally, leaving you with slimmer contours.

The energy emitted by the SculpSure device is fat-selective, which means it’s almost entirely absorbed by fat cells. That’s important for two reasons: First, by targeting fat cells specifically, SculpSure won’t harm the non-fat cells and tissues surrounding the fat cells that are being treated. And second, it also means your treatment can be very precise, offering a more consistent and pleasing result compared to other options like liposuction.

WarmSculpting™ with SculpSure vs. Liposuction

You might not have heard a lot about WarmSculpting™, but you’ve probably heard quite a bit about liposuction. Liposuction has been around for a long time, and it can be effective in removing fat. But it comes with a lot of downsides, which tend to make it a much less popular option than WarmSculpting™.

First, WarmSculpting™ isn’t surgery, so it doesn’t use incisions or anesthesia — two major benefits over liposuction. Plus, there’s no downtime after your WarmSculpting™ session. That means you can go back to your regular activities right away, making it a truly convenient option for getting rid of that stubborn fat. Liposuction does have a recovery period along with a period of downtime, so it can be difficult to fit it into your schedule.

Plus, the suction device used in liposuction just isn’t as precise in removing fat, and that means you could be left with lumps or bumps instead of smooth, sleek contours. And finally, the heat generated by the SculpSure device also helps tighten and tone the skin in the treatment area, helping it “re-form” to your new contours. With liposuction, you can be left with hanging, saggy skin that detracts from your results.

WarmSculpting™ with SculpSure treatment: What to expect

We perform WarmSculpting™ treatments right in our office, using state-of-the-art techniques for optimal results. During your treatment, you’ll lie back and relax while the SculpSure device is passed over the treatment zone. As the laser energy penetrates your skin, you’ll feel some warmth or tingling, but the device’s cooling technology will ensure your skin stays protected throughout your session. Most treatments take a half-hour or less, depending on the size of the treatment area, and more than one area can be treated in a single visit.

WarmSculpting™ can be a great solution for fat on your thighs, belly, back, waist, arms, and hips, as well as on your neck and under-chin areas. You’ll see results after just one treatment, but depending on the amount of fat you’d like to have removed, you might benefit from additional sessions. Dr. Krinsky will develop a treatment plan that’s just right for your goals.
