SculpSure Fat Reduction Benefits

Posted: 6:00 a.m. Sunday, March 20, 2016

By Anita Mandal, M.D.
Question: I developed fat pockets last year mainly in my flanks and back. My daughter’s wedding is in 4 months. If I get the SculpSure now, can I expect to see any results in time for the wedding?

Answer: SculpSure, which is a laser that can non-invasively and selectively reduce fat, does not give immediate results. While the fat is permanently damaged during the 25 minute treatment, final results are typically seen months later.

Many patients see initial results as early as 4 to 6 weeks, but one has to wait 3 months, on average, for maximum results. The reason for this delay is that the destroyed fat is naturally drained from the body through the lymphatic system over time.

In comparison, surgical liposuction which results in immediate fat removal has higher risks, including death from the sudden fluid shifts in the body, combined with prolonged recovery times. With SculpSure, since the lymphatics drain the fat gradually and naturally from the body over a prolonged period of time, there is no real risk of sudden or massive fluid shifts.

An additional benefit of SculpSure is that it can tighten the overlying skin that becomes loose with fat removal. In contrast, surgical liposuction does not give skin tightening and, in the presence of loose skin, a tummy tuck is often needed in combination with liposuction surgery.

Due to advances in technology, safe, non-invasive, yet effective procedures, such as SculpSure, exist with no downtime. Surgery is increasingly reserved for more aggressive or complex situations.


25 Minutes: SculpSure, the new standard in permanent, non-invasive fat reduction with skin tightening: abdomen, flanks, back, hips, thighs, knees, arms and chest.

40 Minutes: Infini RF, Non-Surgical Facelift to tighten sagging jowls and neck & soften wrinkles with no downtime.

90 Minutes: Bellafill, A 5-Year Filler. Dr. Mandal is a BellaDiamond physician in the top 1 percent of expert Bellafill injectors in the world.
