SculpSure Body Contouring Q&A

by Christina M. McAlpin, MD

What is body contouring with SculpSure?

SculpSure body contouring is a noninvasive alternative to liposuction. You eliminate unwanted body fat in just a few short, relaxing sessions, without surgery or downtime.

SculpSure works for you even if your BMI is as high as 43. As long as you have pockets of exercise-resistant fat, SculpSure can improve your physique.

Dr. McAlpin uses the FDA-cleared SculpSure system to eliminate:

  • Stubborn belly fat
  • Love handles
  • Back fat
  • Thigh fat
  • Double chin

How do I know if SculpSure is right for me?

SculpSure isn't a weight-loss technique. If you need to lose a significant amount of weight, you may require help from a nutritionist and a trainer.

Dr. McAlpin carefully evaluates you for SculpSure to be sure you are a good candidate. You should already have a healthy diet and exercise routine in place so you can maintain your SculpSure results for life.

What happens when I get SculpSure?

Dr. McAlpin fits you with a special treatment belt. While you lie back comfortably, Dr. McAlpin places the SculpSure applicators in the belt.

During your 25-minute treatment, you feel alternating cooling and heating sensations. The Contact Cooling™ technology of the SculpSure applicator is always active to ensure that you remain comfortable and safe.

SculpSure’s laser heats your fatty layer, killing unwanted fat cells. If you are having more than one area of fat treated, Dr. McAlpin then repeats the process.

How does SculpSure eliminate the fat cells?

After the SculpSure laser kills your fat cells, your body takes over. Your lymphatic system processes the dead cells, gradually eliminating the debris through excretion.

How many SculpSure sessions do I need?

If you have a small amount of fat, one treatment may be sufficient. However, most men and women prefer to take off up to 75% of their excess fat with second and third treatments.

You should allow about six to eight weeks for your body to clear the destroyed fat cells between sessions. You see your final results within three months after your final SculpSure treatment.

Are my SculpSure changes permanent?

As long as you maintain a stable weight, the flattering new curves and planes that Dr. McAlpin sculpts with SculpSure are yours for life.
