You’ve sweat it out at the gym and cut those sugary snacks, yet you’re still left with a midsection that pops out and over your waistbands. In fact, your efforts may be clearly noticeable everywhere else on your body, but the fat around your abdomen and back stands in defiance against your best efforts. You’re not alone.
At Beth and Howard Braver, MD, our team of health care providers offers a wide range of services designed to help our patients look good and feel great. And one of the best ways to accomplish both is through weight loss, but the road can be a tough one as Mother Nature throws up hurdles that prevent you from achieving your body-shape goals. Luckily, we have a way to circumvent biology with our WarmSculpting treatments by SculpSure, which reduces fat in your targeted areas to recontour your body.
Here’s a look at how our non-invasive WarmSculpting treatments by SculpSure can banish your muffin top and much more.
A targeted approach
One of the keys to SculpSure’s fat-reduction success is the technology allows us to target those problem areas of fat. Despite what so many products and services may claim, it’s virtually impossible to target your weight-loss efforts. When you work out and cut calories, your body chooses where it gives up the fat, and it’s often not from where you want it. In other words, you can’t target belly fat, you can only target your fat in a broader sense.
With our WarmSculpting treatments by SculpSure, we deliver thermal energy directly into the fat cells that are causing you the most problems‚ in this case, those that are responsible for your muffin top. This energy heats and destroys your fat cells — up to 24% in your target area — which your body flushes out naturally.
Gone for good
Another reason why WarmSculpting treatments are so effective is that once we destroy your fat cells, your body doesn’t regenerate new ones. Adults generally have the same number of fat cells throughout life. When you add or lose pounds, your existing fat cells plump or decrease in size, respectively. So, once we eliminate the fat cells in your treatment area, they’re gone for good.
Please note that even after we reduce the number of fat cells in your target area, existing fat cells in other parts of your body can increase in size so you’ll need to maintain healthy habits to preserve your great results.
No pain, all gain
Another great benefit of our WarmSculpting treatments is they are non-invasive and take less than half an hour per treatment. When you come in, we position the SculpSure equipment over your muffin top, and all you need to do is sit back and relax while the equipment delivers the energy into your fat cells without harming your surface skin.
The WarmSculpting timeline
While every patient is different, if you’re looking to whittle away your muffin top through WarmSculpting treatments, you should count on undergoing between three and five sessions for the best results. As we mentioned, each session lasts less than 30 minutes and you’re free to get on with your day directly afterward.
We space these treatments out by several weeks to allow time for your body to respond — flushing out the destroyed fat cells and resettling itself over your slimmer profile. In most cases, our patients realize optimal results about 6-12 weeks after their final WarmSculpting treatment.
