Fat Reduction Q & A

How does weight gain affect my overall health?

Weight gain can significantly impact your overall health and cause medical complications.

If you’ve experienced weight gain recently, you might feel lethargic, tired, and you might have lost interest in participating in the activities that typically bring you joy.

Weight gain also causes depression, anxiety, and can affect all your interpersonal relationships.

What is SculpSure®?

SculpSure refers to an FDA-approved, noninvasive laser treatment designed to target and eliminate fat cells in your body. With SculpSure, Dr. Akpeke can recontour your body and give you a sculpted appearance.

SculpSure has become the fat reduction method of choice for millions of people around the world.

How does SculpSure work?

During your appointment at Delta Medicine Center, Dr. Akpeke begins your SculpSure treatment by discussing your goals and how you’d like to look.

SculpSure safely delivers heat to fat cells immediately below the surface of your skin. The device heats these cells to 47° Celsius (117° Fahrenheit), effectively damaging the cells’ structural integrity. Once damaged, these cells no longer serve their proper function.

Your body recognizes this and starts to eliminate them naturally. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer regenerate.

Ask Dr. Akpeke about using SculpSure to target any of the following areas of your body:

  • Sides
  • Back
  • Abdomen
  • Inner thighs
  • Outer thighs

In some cases, Dr. Akpeke might recommend SculpSure to remove fat from under your chin, also called submental fat.

Are SculpSure sessions painful?

SculpSure is a highly targeted treatment that only heats cells in predetermined areas. That is, it won’t cause any damage to the surrounding tissue. Since heat is involved, you might feel some slight tingling and a sensation of warmth during your session, but you shouldn’t feel any pain.

SculpSure is much safer than traditional liposuction procedures and requires no downtime. You should be able to resume your daily activities immediately after your session.  

Can SculpSure help me lose weight?

SculpSure removes small deposits of fat to reshape the contours of your body. In most cases, these small deposits of fat are the ones that have been in your way of achieving your fitness goals.

However, SculpSure isn’t an effective weight-loss solution and is generally recommended for those people who are near their weight-loss goal, but are having trouble with those last few stubborn pounds. You should speak to Dr. Akpeke about what you can do to maximize the results of your treatment.
