SculpSure ® Non-Invasive Fat Reduction & Body Contouring

Serving clients near Mansfield, Arlington, Fort Worth & Dallas, Texas

SculpSure ®, the latest FDA-approved non-invasive laser device used for permanent fat reduction and non-surgical body contouring is now being offered at Mansfield Cosmetic Surgery Center.  We are the only practice in Mansfield and Arlington, Texas to provide the latest technology in non-invasive fat reduction.  SculpSure has the ability to permanently destroy up to 25% of subcutaneous fat in just 25 minutes during one treatment session.  Optimal outcomes occur between 6 and 12 weeks and results may vary.  Patients may require up to three separate treatment sessions per body area but most will require two sessions depending upon the desired percentage of fat reduction.  Each treatment session can be personally customized.

Sculpsure is the the first ever FDA-approved, Non-Surgical Transcutaneous Laser for permanent fat reduction.

A Smarter Way to Sculpt™

SculpSure ® is the world’s first transcutaneous laser device used for non-invasive fat reduction of the abdomen, sides, flanks, inner / outer thighs, arms, back fat, and under butt region.  It is specifically designed to permanently eliminate fat without surgery, without pain, without bruising, and without downtime.   SculpSure is essentially painless and described as an alternating warm and cool sensation during the 25 minute treatment session.  Permanent results are seen between 6 and 12 weeks.

Is SculpSure Right for me?

SculpSure is a non-invasive laser device that has the ability to eliminate unwanted fat from anywhere on the body without surgery.  It is important to remember that SculpSure is not a weight-loss procedure; therefore, our office does not treat patients with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or more.   Optimal candidates for SculpSure must have unwanted and stubborn fat in various body areas that are resistant to proper diet and exercise and must have a body mass index (BMI) that is not in the obese range.

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a calculation used to measure body fat in men and women as provided by the National Institutes of Health.  By using your height and weight as ratio, the BMI calculator will assess your physical condition and determine your BMI in one of several categories: underweight, normal or ideal body weight, overweight, and obese.  Dr. Thornton uses your BMI to assess and determine if you are an appropriate candidate for SculpSure or other body contouring procedures.  It has been determined that patients with higher BMI may have higher surgical risks and higher chance to develop complications.

What can I expect during my SculpSure consultation and treatment?

Clients interested in receiving SculpSure will need to schedule a complimentary consultation and personally meet with Dr. Michael Thornton who will review your goals for non-invasive fat reduction using SculpSure.   During your complimentary consultation with Dr. Michael L. Thornton, a double board-certified Cosmetic Surgeon and Diplomate of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, he will assess your goals and desires for non-invasive fat reduction and determine if you are an acceptable and appropriate candidate to undergo SculpSure.

When the SculpSure treatment starts, you will initially feel a cooling sensation over the treated area as this helps to keep the skin temperature comfortable during the treatment session.  The SculpSure laser will cycle on and off in a modulating fashion, thus raising the temperature below the skin hot enough to cause permanent destruction (lipolysis) of fat cells.  Most patients will feel a deep warmth or tingling sensation but it is generally well tolerated.  After the 25-minute treatment has completed, you may resume all normal activities!  There is absolutely no post-treatment downtime, bruising, or need to wear compression garments.

What areas can be treated with SculpSure?

SculpSure® is FDA approved to non-invasively eliminate unwanted fat from the abdomen, flanks (love handles), back, thighs, and under the chin.   As long as the SculpSure device can be configured to a particular body part, it can virtually be used anywhere on the body in a safe manner.

How many SculpSure treatments will I need?

Some patients have seen results after one single 25-minute treatment per body area, but most of our patients will definitely require two or more separate treatment sessions to obtain optimal and anticipated results.   Better and more precise results will require multiple treatments.  Each separate treatment session is spaced between 4 and 6 weeks apart.  You will begin seeing results at 12 weeks following your first treatment.

Is SculpSure safe?  Are there any side effects or pain?

Yes, SculpSure®  is safe.  The treatment neither requires anesthesia nor requires topical numbing preparation.  There is no skin penetration or puncture and there is no associated surgery.  It is completely non-invasive and non-surgical.  The treatment session is administered in our office by either Dr. Michael Thornton or one of our medical staff professionals.   Following the 25 minute treatment session, you are basically free to go and may resume normal activities.

If I had previous liposuction can I have SculpSure?

Yes, because sometimes following liposuction surgery, retained fat can be left behind, especially if you have gained additional weight.  There is basically no problem in having a SculpSure treatment on the same area as previous liposuction but this situation will need to be evaluated on an individual basis.

Why choose Dr. Michael Thornton and Mansfield Cosmetic Surgery Center for my SculpSure treatment?

Dr. Michael L. Thornton is an experienced, double board-certified Cosmetic Surgeon who is able to perform all methods of fat removal and will customize your options in fat reduction body contouring to meet your needs, whether it’s using SculpSure®, laser assisted liposuction, VASER assisted liposuction, or traditional power assisted liposuction techniques.   Although non-invasive fat reduction procedures are on the rise, SculpSure may not be for everyone and the only way to determine is with a personalized consultation with Dr. Thornton, who will advise you on which body contouring fat reduction treatment will best suit your needs.
