If you carry extra weight, you know how difficult it can be to shed those excess pounds, and the countless diet pills, surgeries, and special diet plans that are available – you may have tried many of them. The most common weight loss surgeries require incisions, long recovery times, and restrictive diets before and after the procedure. However, if you are intimidated by the other procedures or are not a candidate, SculpSure is an FDA-approved, non-surgical alternative to weight loss surgery. Our Denver SculpSure procedure uses non-invasive laser therapy to reduce stubborn fat and help you achieve a slimmer, trimmer figure. The professionals at Colorado Plastic Surgery Center are trained in SculpSure’s advanced technology and can help you boost self-confidence through reducing excess fat.
Is SculpSure right for me?
SculpSure therapy is a versatile treatment that is appropriate for almost anyone due to the safe and non-invasive nature of the procedure. You may want to consider the treatment if you have stubborn fat in your abdomen, back, thighs, “love handles,” or other areas. If you’ve tried diet and exercise but still are unable to lose stubborn fat deposits, you may be a candidate for SculpSure. If you are ineligible for weight loss surgery due to the potential medical complications, or simply prefer not to go under the knife and endure a long recovery, SculpSure fat reduction requires no downtime and allows you to resume work or other activities right away.
The treatment is administered in exclusive clinic by our experienced plastic surgeon. Dr. Nick will work with you to identify the areas that need treatment. The procedure itself involves a proprietary device that delivers laser heat therapy to the unwanted fat cells. The device has a cooling feature to make you more comfortable throughout the procedure. The laser energy heats the fat cells below the surface of the skin. The heat damages the structure of the fat cells, and over the following weeks, the destroyed cells are shed by your body. This treatment does not damage the skin’s surface or the surrounding tissue. During the procedure, you may experience warmth or tingling in the treatment areas, but this dissipates once after the treatment is completed. The process takes 25 minutes, and is repeated on the desired treatment areas. The duration of the entire procedure depends upon how many areas need treatment.
Once the fat reduction procedure is complete, you can return home. You can resume your daily routine right away, because the SculpSure procedure is virtually painless and does not involve any surgical incisions or other medications. Your doctor may schedule a follow-up visit for subsequent treatments depending on the degree of slimming you hope to achieve.
After the Procedure
After you leave our clinic, your body starts eliminate the destroyed fat cells naturally. It usually takes a few weeks for the fat cells to be shed, and you will see impressive results after about six weeks. Based on your treatment plan and amount of excess fat, you may have follow-up visits at our facility for further treatments. They will be spaced out so your results can be monitored.
Because SculpSure destroys fat cells, they cannot return once flushed from the body. The number of fat cells in your body doesn’t change over time, but the cells just fluctuate in size as you gain or lose weight. This is the reason that we end up with stubborn fat deposits that are resistant to change, even with diet and exercise. However, FDA-approved SculpSure destroys fat cells, permanently eliminating many fat cells in the targeted zone.
