SculpSure, Liposuction & More
Each year, summertime accentuates everyone’s focus on achieving a better body. From diets, to hitting the gym, to body contouring procedures, we’re all seeking a solution to slim down and tone up.
Luckily, there are medical and aesthetic treatments that offer long lasting, body contouring results year round! Whether you are seeking a non-invasive treatment to help tone up a problem area or a procedure to remove saggy skin and flatten the abdomen, it is important to educate yourself on all of the options and work with your Doctor to help you reach your goals.
Here are a few treatment options to explore as you consider body contouring options:
SculpSure Body Contouring
How it Works
SculpSure is the first clinically proven FDA-approved breakthrough treatment that uses light-based energy to reduce stubborn fat.
Upper abdomen, lower abdomen, love handles, and the list goes on. Nearly every area of the body is possible to safely treat.
SculpSure offers up to 24% reduction in fat cells after just one 25 minute treatment*. It is non-invasive, and has no downtime! You may notice results as early as 4-6 weeks, with optimal results typically seen at 12 weeks.
How it Works
Liposuction is a minimally invasive surgical technique designed to sculpt or contour the body. A numbing solution is used to minimize discomfort during the procedure. Narrow tubes will be used to evacuate the excess fat that lies beneath the dermis.
Abdomen & waist, flanks, thighs & calves, buttocks, arms, neck and chin, breasts, male chest & underarms (bra rolls).
Liposuction is a popular procedure, due to its ability to target large or small areas of the body that are unaffected by diet and exercise. This minimally invasive procedure provides immediate results that are long lasting, with little downtime.
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
How it Works
A tummy tuck surgery is a procedure that carefully removes the excess skin and fat from the abdomen. Patients may also combine abdominoplasty procedures with liposuction (also called body sculpting) and breast augmentation (often called a mommy makeover).
A tummy tuck is recommended for patients who have extra skin around their abdomen and are seeking a firmer, more defined stomach. This is a surgical procedure and patients will undergo anesthesia. Recovery time can vary depending on the patient and their body, ranging from 4-6 weeks.
How do I decide which option is best for me?
The best way to determine which treatment option is right for you is to consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, such as Dr. Bryan McIntosh, who will provide you with a personalized treatment plan, and whose staff will assist you in every step of pre-treatment, the procedure, and recovery.
