SculpSure® Body Contouring Q & A

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is an FDA approved laser system specifically designed for noninvasive body contouring and fat reduction for those stubborn problem areas. Precise, controlled laser energy targets and damages the structural integrity of the fat cells.

Over the weeks following your treatment, your body’s natural lymphatic system eliminates the damaged fat cells. SculpSure has four, fully-customizable applicators and can treat multiple areas in one quick in-office session.

It can target unwanted fat in areas such as the:

  • Flanks
  • Thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • Under the chin (submental area)

A short series of SculpSure treatments might be needed for the best results.

How does SculpSure address the submental area?

A double chin can make you feel self-conscious, creating the appearance that you’re older or heavier than you actually are. SculpSure technology is FDA-cleared to get rid of unwanted fat under the chin to give you a more streamlined profile.

The FDA clearance for use of SculpSure under the chin is relatively recent, although it’s been used successfully for years on other body areas for contouring. Bluebonnet OB/GYN is a pioneer in the San Antonio area, being the first practice to offer the laser technology to reduce fat under the chin.

Using SculpSure for the submental area is successful on patients of many sizes. You may get success with a BMI (body mass index) up to 43. But for body contouring for other areas (such as your belly or flanks) it’s recommended that you have a BMI of 30 or less.

Who is a good candidate for SculpSure?

Most adults with a healthy body weight are good candidates for SculpSure. If other methods of fat loss, such as diet and exercise, have been unsuccessful in abolishing your unwanted fat, the SculpSure system can complement your healthy lifestyle.

Men and women who are obese or have certain underlying medical conditions might not be good candidates for SculpSure.

The friendly Bluebonnet team helps to make sure you have a detailed understanding of the process. Being clear about your goals helps them to create a customized plan.

Dr. Brougher and Laurie can help determine if SculpSure is right for you, answer your questions, and provide you with valuable information.
