Body Sculpting Q & A

What is body sculpting?

All too many people aren’t able to reach their body goals because they have stubborn pockets of fat standing in the way. Body sculpting is designed to melt away any fat that hasn’t responded to diet and exercise. Whether you have unwanted fat lingering on your abdomen, legs, under your chin, or elsewhere on your body, noninvasive body sculpting can help.

This transformative procedure works by sending laser energy into your fat cells, destroying them. The specialists at Dr. Gray’s office use SculpSure technology to deliver that energy safely through your skin. That means you don’t need any incisions and won’t even feel any pain. The entire procedure is quick, safe, comfortable, and effective.

Is body sculpting safe?

Yes. Body sculpting is FDA-approved and designed with your comfort and safety in mind.

When compared to other fat removal techniques like liposuction, body sculpting is significantly safer. More invasive fat removal treatments often require you to be on anesthesia so that incisions can be made on your body. You’re left with stitches that need to heal and could be exposed to scarring or infection.

Body sculpting, on the other hand, uses laser technology to target fat through your skin. Because your specialist accesses the unwanted fat underneath your skin without affecting your skin in any way, you’ll be comfortable during the treatment and don’t have to worry about any post-procedure pain or recovery time. In fact, you can get your body sculpting treatment, then immediately continue on with your day.

Are the results of body sculpting permanent?

Absolutely. Body sculpting targets unwanted fat cells with laser heat energy. Those fat cells absorb the heat, eventually absorbing so much that they’re destroyed. Your body’s lymphatic system then flushes the fat cells out, permanently removing them from your body.

It usually takes between six weeks and three months for your body to process out all of the destroyed fat cells. After that, you are left with a smoother, slimmer body that isn’t hindered by stubborn areas of fat.

While body sculpting does permanently destroy the fat cells it targets, it doesn’t prevent the creation of new fat cells. Maintaining a healthy weight is important to protect your results long-term.
