For patients who have sought to lose weight but struggle to see results in certain areas, SculpSure® can help to improve contours. This unique system employs laser technology to target stubborn fat deposits on the abdomen, flanks, back, and inner and outer thighs. SculpSure is the first FDA-approved laser liposuction treatment for non-surgical body contouring that is typically safe, effective, and features no downtime. At the renowned Hurwitz Center for Plastic Surgery in Pittsburgh, PA, Dr. Dennis Hurwitz and his team dedicate themselves to helping patients improve their appearance and self-esteem through state-of-the-art solutions.*
SculpSure is a hyperthermic fat reduction system that targets stubborn fat cells for non-invasive body contouring. The system consists of four applicators, which can be placed on the skin in various combinations to treat specific areas of concern.
Using hyperthermic technology, SculpSure increases the temperature of fat cells to between 42 and 47 degrees Celsius, without affecting dermal tissue. This process damages fat cells, which are then naturally eliminated over time by the lymphatic system.
Patients who have been struggling to lose minimal to moderate weight in areas typically resistant to fat loss may be candidates for SculpSure. It is important that patients who choose to undergo this procedure are healthy and maintain proper nutrition and exercise. Typically, we recommend treatment to patients with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or less.
Many patients have been able to accomplish their weight loss goals with the aid of one or more SculpSure treatments. This non-invasive procedure can offer several benefits, including:
This option is often also more affordable than other fat reduction procedures.*
Prior to your procedure, you can schedule a consultation with Dr. Hurwitz to establish your goals and candidacy for treatment. At this time, Dr. Hurwitz can determine whether this is the best body contouring treatment to help you achieve the look you desire.
You can expect to see treatment results in as little as six weeks, with full benefits of your procedure visible in about 12 weeks.
If you decide to proceed with treatment, an experienced member of our team will apply four pads to target areas for about 25 minutes. You may feel a gentle warming sensation, however, continuous cooling will prevent damage to the skin during treatment. Typically, patients experience little discomfort during the procedure. Once your laser liposuction cycle is complete, you can return to work or your regularly scheduled activities. You may begin to see treatment results in as little as six weeks, with full benefits of your procedure typically visible in about 12 weeks.*
Immediately following your laser body contouring treatment, you may experience mild discomfort. Typically, this can be addressed with an over-the-counter pain medication. You may also notice some swelling for about four to six weeks, but this should subside over time. You will also need to attend regular follow-up appointments with Dr. Hurwitz to monitor your progress. Our staff will schedule these visits one week, six weeks, six months, and one year after your procedure.
