Possible complaints and risks of surgery

A surgical procedure such as liposuction should not be underestimated. Even though modern methods have been further developed and are designed to expose the body to as little stress as possible, it is still necessary for the doctor to access the fat deposits using small incisions in the skin. Liposuction is usually performed under general anesthesia, which also affects the body. The symptoms after liposuction often include temporary swelling, redness, hematomas and slight pain. Sensory impairments can also occur at times.

In addition, the procedure is followed by a period of rest and recovery lasting several weeks. Patients should wear a special compression girdle for about six weeks. Sport and other strenuous activities are usually possible again after a break of around three months.

The advantages of SculpSure® Warmsculpting™

In contrast to surgical liposuction, SculpSure® achieves the desired fat reduction without surgery. Treatment with Warmsculpting™ is painless and can therefore be performed without additional anesthesia. This not only eliminates the risks and possible discomfort of surgery, but also that of anesthesia. The downtimes are also very short. Patients can usually resume their usual daily routines immediately after treatment without any further restrictions. The duration of treatment is also comparatively short. While liposuction surgery usually takes between one and three hours, treatment with SculpSure® usually only takes 25 minutes.

What happens during treatment with SculpSure®

After a detailed consultation, the SculpSure® applicators are placed on the area to be treated on the day of treatment. A special strap ensures that the diode heads remain securely in place. The problem areas are usually located on the stomach or flanks. However, other areas of the body such as the thighs, arms or back can also be treated with the Warmsculpting™ method. During the treatment, the applicators release targeted energy into the tissue. This increases the temperature, which in turn causes the fat cells to “melt “. After a treatment time of around 25 minutes, patients can leave the practice immediately.

What results are possible?

Since every body is individual and reacts differently to certain influences, no guarantee of success can be given in advance for the SculpSure® treatment. In our experience, however, the procedure has proven successful and has shown a good response rate in our patients. The first results can be seen after about six weeks. The final result is usually achieved after about twelve weeks. For the best possible result, several treatment sessions at intervals of several weeks may be recommended. How many treatments are advisable is determined on an individual basis.

What happens to the fat cells?

After the fat cells have been destroyed by the heat, the body reabsorbs them. This process can take several weeks. The removal of unwanted fat cells thus takes place in a very natural way that is not associated with any pain or unpleasant sensations.

How long do the results of Warmsculpting™ last?

Like surgical liposuction, SculpSure® Warmsculpting™ also achieves long-lasting results. Destroyed fat cells are not regenerated by the body. With a healthy and balanced diet and an active lifestyle, patients can enjoy the aesthetic results of the treatment for a long time to come. However, if the patient gains a lot of weight, the treated area can also be negatively affected as the remaining fat cells increase in volume.
