Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center is among the first practices in the country to offer SculpSure, a new FDA-approved treatment that melts 25% of a patient’s body fat in just 25 minutes. SculpSure is the world’s first non-invasive laser treatment for reducing pockets of stubborn fat such as in the abdomen and flanks with no surgery and no downtime. “We’re excited to offer this new, non-invasive fat reduction treatment to our patients, treating the love handles and abdomen while removing unwanted fat effectively and efficiently. Our patients will love their results and appreciate how quickly the procedure can be performed,” says Scott Engel, MD. Studies show SculpSure has been proven more effective than older technologies such as CoolSculpting. Other advantages include that SculpSure is safe for all skin types, and the treatment can also help tighten the skin while simultaneously reducing the fat. More than 90% of treated patients have been satisfied with their SculpSure results. SculpSure uses a laser technology to heat the subcutaneous fat cells so they can be broken down naturally by the body over six to 12 weeks after just one 25-minute treatment. The heat of the laser is offset by a cooling technology to ensure patient safety and comfort during the procedure. Patients can return to work and other normal activities immediately.
