Body Sculpting Q & A

by Stacey A. Anderson, MD

When should you consider body sculpting?

Body sculpting is a great option for patients who just need a bit of help with shaping their body into the desired contours. If you meet these conditions, body sculpting may just give you the body you want at last:

  • Have tried to lose fat bulges in certain areas, but they just won't go away
  • Are happy with your body -- other than a few resistant bulges of fat
  • Are in good overall health
  • Have good skin elasticity
  • Have maintained a healthy body weight (BMI of 30 or less) for at least a year

Where can you get body sculpting?

You can have body sculpting treatments in virtually any area where extra fat deposits exist. Some popular areas for this type of treatment include:

  • The chin (double chin)
  • The thighs
  • The buttocks
  • The flanks
  • The belly
  • The back
  • The upper arms

How does the body sculpting process work?

First, you'll meet with Dr. Anderson to discuss your problem areas and your treatment goals. This allows her to create a customized treatment plan to effectively address the fat deposits. During the treatment session, you'll lay down comfortably -- there's no anesthesia needed and you won't have to be asleep for this procedure.

As the laser pulses from the truSculpt 3D body sculpting device are applied, you'll likely feel a warming sensation. However, most patients tolerate this quite well and don't find it painful. Each treatment pulse lasts about four minutes, and the handpiece is then moved over to an immediately adjacent area to treat the fat cells nearby.

In total, treatment time is usually around an hour or less. As soon as the treatment is complete, you can go back to work or to your regular routine. There's no special aftercare required for truSculpt 3D treatment, either.

When will you see results?

The radiofrequency energy used in body sculpting treatments breaks down your fat cells. With the fat cells seriously damaged, the liquid fat is released and the fat cell shell will die. Your body will naturally eliminate this fat over time. It usually takes around a month to notice results from a body sculpting treatment, and the results will be even better over the next few months.
