Body Sculpting Q&A

What is body sculpting?

Body sculpting is a noninvasive treatment that reduces fat cells in targeted areas of your body. At AdvancedMD Aesthetics of Atlanta, Dr. Rheaume uses the state-of-the-art TruSculpt® iD system for body sculpting without surgery. 

You can customize the treatment according to your desired results and personal treatment goals. 

TruSculpt iD works by emitting monopolar radiofrequency into the layer of fat directly beneath your skin. The energy heats and damages the fat cells. 

With each treatment, around 24% of the fat cells in the targeted area cannot recover. In the weeks following your treatment, your body naturally expels those fat cells through the lymphatic system.

TruSculpt Flex, also available at AdvancedMD Aesthetics of Atlanta, helps you build lean muscle mass without spending extended time at the gym. Its results complement the results of TruSculpt iD. 

How many body sculpting treatments do I need?

It might take more than one body sculpting procedure with TruSculpt iD to see your ideal results, but you’ll notice a difference after the first treatment. You can see the full effect of each session around 12 weeks later when your body has had the chance to flush out the damaged fat cells. 

During a brief pre-treatment consultation at AdvancedMD Aesthetics of Atlanta, Dr. Rheaume decides how many sessions you’ll need to reach your body sculpting goals. 

How long does it take to recover after body sculpting?

After a body sculpting procedure with TruSculpt iD, there is no need for downtime. You can go about your day as usual as soon as you leave the office, but you might experience some skin redness and warmth for about an hour after the treatment. Your skin might also be a little more touch-sensitive for about a day. 

What are the results of body sculpting?

Body sculpting is not a weight loss procedure, so you shouldn’t expect to lose any significant weight. Instead, it simply contours stubborn areas of fat that don’t respond to exercise. The results can make your body appear a bit more proportionate or a little trimmer than before. 

Popular areas to target with body sculpting include:

  • Chin and jaw
  • Upper arms
  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Inner thighs
  • Outer thighs

After achieving a 24% fat loss in targeted areas like these, you might find that your clothes fit a little better or look more flattering on your body.

Body sculpting could be the final step to enjoying an appealing figure after reaching your weight loss goals. Call AdvancedMD Aesthetics of Atlanta or request a consultation online today to find out if the treatment is right for you.
