Body Contouring Q&A

Goldome Healthcare, Inc.

What is body contouring?

Body contouring is a nonsurgical method of fat removal. It’s ideal for small or moderately-sized problem areas that don’t respond to diet or exercise. There are several different methods of body contouring available, but the experienced team at Goldome Healthcare, Inc. uses SculpSure, an effective, innovative technique for nonsurgical fat removal.

What are the best areas for body contouring?

The most common SculpSure treatment areas include:

  • Abdomen, including “muffin top”
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Back, including the “bra fat” area
  • Double chin

If there’s a different area where you’ve got extra fat, ask your provider at Goldome Healthcare, Inc. if SculpSure is appropriate for that area. In general, SculpSure may be used nearly any place you have stubborn fat.

How does SculpSure work?

SculpSure is a laser-based, noninvasive treatment that targets and reduces or eliminates areas of body fat. Applicators are placed over the treatment area and a laser passes harmlessly through your skin to your fat cells to rupture them. The liquefied fat then gradually moves into your blood and is flushed out by the body’s lymphatic system.

SculpSure treatments happen on-site at Goldome Healthcare, Inc., and the procedure typically takes 25 minutes per treatment area. You will sit or lie down in a comfortable position while your provider places up to four treatment applicators above the fat deposits.

Your provider can group the treatment applicators together for larger fat deposits like the belly, or separated for smaller or scattered fat deposits like the double chin area. During treatment, you may feel some warmth, but it’s not painful.

With SculpSure, there is no downtime and the risks are minimal. You may experience some light bruising, swelling, or soreness afterward.

During the next 6-12 weeks, you’ll notice a fat reduction in the treated area. By the 12-week post-treatment mark, you should see a visible improvement in the appearance of fat.

How many treatments do I need for good results?

Most patients need just one SculpSure treatment to see results. After one treatment, you can lose up to 24% of fat cells in the targeted area. If you want further contouring, you can schedule a follow-up treatment to reduce a roughly equal amount of fat again.

You don’t need maintenance treatments for one simple reason: The fat cells are destroyed, and thus they can’t return to the treatment area. However, remember that you can still gain weight, and this could increase the fat cells in surrounding areas. To maintain your results, watch your diet. If you need assistance in losing weight or keeping it off, consult with Goldome Healthcare, Inc. regarding a weight loss program.
