Body Sculpting Q&A

What is body sculpting?

Body sculpting is a noninvasive treatment to remove stubborn fat pockets that diet and exercise can’t shift. It’s a safe way to eradicate the small areas of fat that remain after you’ve lost weight, which often persist in places like your:

  • Tummy
  • Upper arms
  • Thighs
  • Waist
  • Back
  • Hips

It’s important to know that body sculpting doesn’t replace healthy weight loss and can’t treat obesity (significant excess weight). If you need help with your diet and leading a healthier lifestyle, Dr. Geracimos offers individualized, sustainable weight loss programs at ElevateHealth Aesthetics.

How does body sculpting remove my excess fat?

Body sculpting works by destroying targeted fat cells. Some systems use cold to freeze the cells; others use laser (light) or radiofrequency energy to heat them. Fat cells freeze and melt at different temperatures than the other cells in your surrounding tissues, so you won’t damage any skin or muscle during treatment.

The treated fat cells break down over time, and your body extracts the waste. You can’t grow new fat cells, so body sculpting results are permanent. However, the remaining fat cells might expand if you eat more food than you need. Therefore, you must adopt a healthy lifestyle with plenty of exercise to maintain your new physique.

What can I expect during body sculpting treatment?

Body sculpting treatment is noninvasive and virtually painless, so you won’t need any anesthetic or sedatives. You may feel the heat or cold from the body-sculpting handpiece as Dr. Geracimos guides it over your skin, but this shouldn’t cause any discomfort.

Session length varies depending on what areas Dr. Geracimos treats but averages between 10 and 25 minutes. You should have a series of body sculpting sessions for the best results.

How soon will I see the results of body sculpting treatment?

Body sculpting doesn’t produce an instant transformation because it takes time for your body to break the dead fat cells down and dispose of them. Most patients notice a difference in their shape after six weeks, with final results taking around 12 weeks.
