Getting rid of excess fat — especially in the midsection — can be a frustrating task for many, especially because this area is notorious for being resistant to diet and exercise. While liposuction is often an excellent way to reduce stubborn pockets of fat, some individuals may be seeking a non-surgical option. SculpSure® has proven to be an exceptional alternative for liposuction and allows Dr. Thomas Lintner, our Atlanta area plastic surgeon, to help patients noticeably reduce pockets of fat without surgery. Treatment sessions typically take only about 25 minutes to complete, and most patients are able to return to their daily activities immediately after a SculpSure® treatment.
Ideal candidates for this procedure include healthy individuals who are close to achieving their weight loss goals, but have remaining unwanted, stubborn pockets of fat. To find out if you qualify for this state-of-the-art liposuction alternative, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Lintner. He can provide personalized answers to your questions and help you determine if SculpSure® is right for you. If you are not considered a candidate for the SculpSure® treatment, Dr. Lintner can help you find a more appropriate alternative.
Using innovative light-based technology, SculpSure® is designed to penetrate through the skin to target and destroy fat cells, while leaving surrounding skin and tissue unharmed. Unlike similar non-surgical body sculpting treatments, no suction is required — instead, a customized plastic frame is worn that allows the applicator paddles to be secured in place to address your specific areas of concern. To help you remain comfortable, a cooling system is activated during treatment. As the fat cells are broken down, you may feel a mild warming sensation, but this should not feel uncomfortable, and means that SculpSure® is working properly. Once destroyed, the fat cells will gradually be eliminated from the body through its natural processes.
Although treatment sessions can be completed in approximately 25 minutes, results will improve over time as the body naturally removes the destroyed fat cells. Final results are typically seen 8 to 12 weeks after treatment. Depending on your unique situation, multiple treatment sessions may be recommended — Dr. Lintner can advise qualified candidates on how many sessions are best in order to achieve the best possible results.
