Despite your best efforts, sometimes a healthy diet and exercise may not be enough to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat. If you are looking for a non-surgical alternative to liposuction with zero downtime than truSculpt® 3D may be right for you. TruSculpt is the latest in non-surgical body contouring that is designed to help sculpt the body, reduce fat and improve skin elasticity. TruSculpt 3D is FDA-cleared for safety and efficacy in lipolysis (breakdown of fat) and provides consistent and even results.

The best candidates for truSculpt 3D are men and women with a body mass index (BMI) of 35 or less and would like to reduce stubborn pockets of fat on their bodies as well as tighten skin. All skin types can be treated as truSculpt does not affect the skin’s pigmentation. TruSculpt 3D can work on most areas of the body. Some common problem areas that we frequently treat are:
TruSculpt is not for people who are pregnant, have pacemakers or defibrillators or who have metallic implants in the targeted treatment area.
During your consultation, Dr. Dellinger will perform a physical examination and discuss your concerns and aesthetic goals. It’s important to have realistic expectations when considering a non-surgical body contouring procedure. Depending on your goals and the amount of fatty tissue in your trouble areas, Dr. Dellinger may suggest multiple treatments. Most patients do well with one treatment although some patients may opt for a second treatment to add to their results. Treatment of the neck and chin area typically require 2 or 3 treatments to achieve optimal results.
During your procedure, the truSculpt 3D applicator will glide over the skin’s surface. This gliding technique has been proven effective in doubling your results as well as shortening treatment time. You will experience a warm sensation during application, similar to a hot stone massage, but it should not be overwhelming. TruSculpt 3D uses radio frequency (RF) energy to deliver controlled heating deep within the skin to target underlying excess fatty tissue. As the fat is heated, the cells are damaged and will eventually be eliminated through the body’s lymphatic system.
The treatment time for a truSculpt 3D session can take as long as 60 minutes for the abdomen and flanks. Smaller areas would obviously require less treatment time. The neck and chin area requires less than a half-hour to treat.
One of the many perks of non-invasive body contouring procedures is their effectiveness with little to no downtime. Once your truSculpt treatment is completed, the affected area may be warm and flushed in appearance for up to an hour. Most people find that they can return to work or partake in regular exercise immediately following their truSculpt treatment although vigorous exercise should be avoided until the next day.
You may experience mild sensitivity in the treated area a few days after treatment. This sensation is the result of the fat reduction, not muscle tenderness, and should dissipate after 3 to 4 days.
Initial results can be seen in as little as 3 to 4 weeks, although final results require around 3 months. Although results vary from person to person, many men and women have experienced positive changes after their truSculpt 3D treatment(s) including:
Once the damaged fat cells are flushed from your system, they will not grow back. However, it is important to practice a healthy diet and exercise regimen to maintain long-lasting results as remaining fat cells can continue to grow.
