SculpSure is a new and exciting non-invasive body contouring treatment that allows you to trim and sculpt your body without pain, or downtime. Liposuction remains a good option, but SculpSure can produce great results for the right candidate. So if you are considering body contouring you should compare SculpSure vs liposuction, before deciding which is better for you.
SculpSure uses a 1064nm laser to eliminate unwanted fat cells and contour the body. The device selectively targets the fat cells, heating them to a controlled hyperthermic temperature of between 42-47 degrees Celsius. The cells that are treated are passed from the body via the lymphatic system. The results achieved with SculpSure are permanent.
Liposuction is a surgical procedure in which a small cannula is inserted under the skin to break up the fatty tissue. A suction is then used to remove the fat.
Which procedure is better?
Choosing the best treatment for you will depend on the extent of the fat reduction, and the areas being treated.
Here are a few factors to consider about both treatments:
- SculpSure is designed to treat localized areas of unwanted fat. Liposuction is better suited for reducing large fat deposits.
- SculpSure is FDA cleared for reducing fat in the abdomen and flanks. Liposuction can be done on all parts of the body
- SculpSure has zero downtime. Liposuction requires at least 7 days of downtime.
- SculpSure only takes 25 minutes. Liposuction can last anywhere from 2-3 hours, depending on the size of the area being treated.
It is best to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon regarding which procedure would be better for you.
