The benefits of SculpSure
When diet and exercise simply aren’t enough, SculpSure is a great way to non-invasively reduce unwanted fat. One of the most popular procedures Dr. Scarpidis offers, SculpSure in New York City provides discerning patients with a number of appealing benefits, including:
- It’s FDA-approved.
- It can be used to reduce fat on the flanks, abdomen, upper arms, thighs and knees.
- No anesthesia is required.
- The procedure generally takes only 25 minutes – and you can see results as little as one treatment.*
- It’s associated with less pain, bruising and swelling when compared to traditional fat removal procedures.
- There’s no downtime – you can return to work and resume your normal daily routine immediately after treatment.
How SculpSure works
A hyperthermic laser fat removal system, SculpSure works by targeting powerful laser energy directly into the treatment area. The laser then heats the fat cells and surrounding tissues, causing the fat to release. From there, your body will target the unwanted fat through its natural process, and your former problem area is left looking more slim and contoured.* The laser also helps to produce new collagen and elastin, which will can work to keep your body firm and youthful.
The SculpSure procedure
SculpSure is a completely non-invasive body contouring procedure that can be performed in the comfort of Dr. Scarpidis’ private and luxurious office. To begin your NYC SculpSure, you will lie down and up to four SculpSure brackets will be placed on the treatment area. We will then attach the laser applicators to the brackets, before beginning your 25-minute treatment. As soon as the procedure begins, you can expect to feel a warming sensation, though the system’s cooling technology will quickly kick in to protect your skin and ensure you’re entirely comfortable throughout the treatment. Once the procedure is complete, you will be able to return to work and your normal daily routine immediately, without any downtime or side effects.
Because SculpSure relies on your body to remove the fat naturally, your results will appear gradually. Most of our patients begin to see a visible improvement within six weeks, with the full results appearing at twelve weeks.

Are you a candidate for SculpSure?
Because of SculpSure’s appealing benefits and ability to produce dramatic body contouring results, many of Dr. Scarpidis’ New York SculpSure patients are interested in the procedure. In general, we advise individuals that the treatment can be in your best interest if you’re currently following a healthy diet and exercise plan, but you’ve been unable to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat on your own.
In addition, it’s important for candidates to be aware that SculpSure is a body contouring treatment – not a weight loss procedure. As such, you need to have realistic expectations for exactly what the treatment can accomplish. While it can certainly help sculpt and contour your body –it’s not a substitute for diet and exercise.
Although these guidelines should give you an idea of who can benefit from SculpSure, please know that the only way to be certain you’re a candidate is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Scarpidis today.

Answers to Common Questions About Sculpsure
How is Sculpsure different?
This is an advanced, FDA-approved laser treatment specifically for the flanks and abdomen. The process is minimally invasive, and ideal for patients who have unwanted, unsightly fat deposits. Sculpsure has some important advantages -- the treatment takes only minutes, is non-invasive, and offers a fast recovery time.
Is Sculpsure safe?
Sculpsure is an extremely safe process, when performed by a skilled plastic surgeon. It uses a special laser that targets unwanted fat deposits, which the body then naturally processes. As with any procedure, it is advised that you are treated by a medical professional with extensive knowledge of the process.
Does Sculpsure work?
The process is effective in addressing fat cells from your abdomen or flanks. Fat cells function to grow in size during weight gain, so weight management will help you to keep the new, slimmer, more sculpted body contour.
How long does it take to see the results of Sculpsure?
As the treated fat cells must be reabsorbed through natural body processes, the results of the treatment typically become visible within as little as six weeks, but the final result is usually achieved in about eight to twelve weeks in most cases. However, individual results may vary.
Can Sculpsure be used on other areas of the body?
The procedure was developed specifically to resolve unwanted fat deposits in the abdomen and flanks (the side of the body between ribs and hip), but is also an effective treatment for other body areas such as arms, back, love handles, buttocks, as well as inner, outer, and backs of the thigh area.
