When people think of fast weight loss they imagine fad diets, abusive workouts, and invasive procedures such as tummy tucks or liposuction. Luckily scientists have discovered new, safe and non-invasive ways to reduce fat without the risk, pain, or downtime of invasive procedures. The question is, are these non-invasive treatments as effective as the tried and true procedures like liposuction? What’s the point of having a fat-reduction treatment if it doesn’t work? Technology has advanced over the years and its no longer necessary to go under the knife, receive anesthesia, or have a painful recovery to treat your unwanted fat. The good news is that non-invasive treatments like SculpSure DO work and have been FDA approved to reduce your trouble areas. While obese patients might be better off with more invasive procedures, someone with a moderate amount of fat to lose can highly benefit from SculpSure and here’s why:

SculpSure vs. Liposuction


While liposuction proves to be an effective method for immediate fat loss, it comes with an awfully long list of negatives.

Risks of Liposuction include:

  • Anesthesia risks that could be life-threatening
  • Change in skin sensation that may continue after treatment
  • Damage to nerves, muscles, blood vessels, and organs
  • Fluid accumulation
  • Abnormal contouring and fat arrangement
  • Deep vein thrombosis or heart complications and more…

Risks of SculpSure include:

  • Maybe some soreness post treatment

SculpSure has proven safe and effective for fat reduction and it doesn’t carry the scary risks of liposuction. Granted, you won’t see an immediate result after your SculpSure treatment. Results take a few weeks because your fat cells are destroyed but still must be disposed of by your body. Once that happens, you’ll notice the difference. Some patients want the immediate results of Liposuction instead of waiting a few weeks but most patients don’t think the risk outweighs the small wait time you have with non-invasive treatments and zero risk or downtime.


Speaking of downtime, liposuction can have a long and painful recovery that prevents you from continuing your usual daily activities. SculpSure is completely non-invasive, takes 25 minutes, and allows you to go about your day without any need for downtime. Sure, you might wait a few weeks to watch your fat melt away but most patients see the benefit of SculpSure far outweighs the need for a more dangerous and painful immediate gratification.

Of course, the choice is always yours and we’d be happy to help you make the best decision possible for your goals. If you’re obese, another procedure might be a better fit for you. SculpSure works best (and fastest) on patients with smaller areas of fat they’d like treated. With that being said, even if you’re obese, SculpSure can still work and you just might need more treatments and a little patience.
