Modern technology has finally gifted us with the means of removing stubborn pockets of fat without having to go under the knife. At Gabbay Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills, SculpSure treatments offer non-surgical fat reduction with no downtime and no anesthetic.
WHAT IS SCULPSURE?
SculpSure is an FDA cleared, non-invasive treatment that uses laser technology to melt fat cells in your most troublesome areas. In just one twenty-five minute session, SculpSure can reduce the fat present in the targeted area by 20-25%. Our goal is to move you that much closer to your aesthetic goals without having to worry about scarring or recovery periods.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
SculpSure uses a 1060 nanometer wavelength laser to precisely target adipose tissue, or fat cells, without harming any surrounding tissue. Recent research has shown that this technique is both safe and effective. Essentially, the laser heats the fat cells until they physically break down. The destroyed fat cells are slowly disposed of by the body’s lymphatic system over the following three months.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?
Dr. Gabbay administers SculpSure treatment directly in his office. It’s so easy that you could have it done during your lunch break and go right back to work afterward. When Dr. Gabbay first brings out the machine, it may seem a little daunting, but don’t worry. There are no needles, no knives, and no drugs.
If you haven’t already, you’ll discuss your problem areas, and Dr. Gabbay will mark where to position the frames for the applicators. He will use a procedural belt to hold the frames in the appropriate position and then insert the applicators into the frames. That is when your actual treatment will begin.
During your twenty-five minute session, you may experience some warmth at the site of treatment. This is completely normal. There’s also a cooling device continually running through the applicators to make sure you are comfortable. If you do begin to experience discomfort, then don’t be afraid to speak up. The whole point of SculpSure is that it’s painless for the patient. To see what the process looks like, check out this video.
Afterward, you may notice some early results, but keep in mind that it will take a full three months to see the finished product. The destroyed fat cells will hang around for a while as your body slowly disposes of them. If 20-25% fat reduction wasn’t quite enough to get you where you want to be, don’t worry. Most people need a couple of sessions if they haven’t already reached their fitness goals.
IS SCULPSURE RIGHT FOR YOU?
SculpSure is designed to help patients who struggle with particularly stubborn areas. It is not a replacement for diet or exercise. You can undergo multiple sessions for a more dramatic transformation, but the best patients will already be close to their physical goals. If you have questions regarding your eligibility or about other forms of plastic surgery in Beverly Hills, then feel free to schedule a private consultation with Dr. Gabbay personally.
IS IT WORTH IT?
The testimonials say it all. If you’ve got stubborn areas that won’t go away, SculpSure often makes a significant difference. Whether it’s the way your clothes fit or compliments from friends, there’s no denying the value of heightened self-esteem. Unlike other significant procedures, there are no scars and no wasted paid time off. You get to enjoy a purely natural version of you that’s just a little slimmer in all of the right places.
