Are you working out and eating a healthy diet but cannot seem to get rid of those love handles? You are not alone. Sometimes even after all our efforts to lose weight, our body still retains fat ‘bulges’ that make us self-conscious. The good news is that since 2017, the FDA approved SculpSure® for lipolysis, which has shown excellent results. If you have been struggling to lose extra body fat, then you should reach out to Dr. Riehm and her team, who specialize in body sculpting in Fort Worth, Texas.
The many benefits of SculpSure®, including its non-invasive nature, is the reason why so many men and women want to undergo this procedure. Unfortunately, not everyone is the ideal candidate for SculpSure®. Read on to see what makes one the right candidate and to see what changes you may have to make before undergoing body sculpting.
You Are Not Overweight
There’s a stark difference between weight loss and fat loss. This is why even after exercise and noticing weight loss, you may still have pockets of fat. SculpSure® is not a treatment option for people looking to lose weight, which is a BMI below 30. Some of the areas treated include the face, back, and the flank
This means that this procedure is recommended for people weighing between 10 and 20 pounds over their ideal weight. You could calculate this at home by looking up an online BMI calculator. If you happen to gain weight after undergoing this procedure, then you will have to schedule regular SculpSure® sessions.
You Practice A Healthy Lifestyle
Not being overweight does not mean that someone is practicing a healthy lifestyle. If you are looking for permanent results from SculpSure®, then you must be willing to practice a healthy lifestyle if you haven’t started already.
These will include maintaining proper body weight, consuming healthy foods, and working out regularly. Whole foods such as fruits, lean protein, and vegetables are excellent, while processed food and alcohol are terrible due to the excess sugar.
As for exercise, you should aim for half an hour of intense exercise at least four times a week. Focus on building your muscles to improve the results you get from SculpSure®.
You Are Not Looking For Dramatic Changes
People who choose SculpSure® do so for its convenience. First, the treatment only takes 25 minutes, and since it’s painless and non-invasive, most people go back to work on the same day as the procedure.
Additionally, as mentioned earlier, this procedure is not for weight loss. It helps to eliminate close to 24% of body fat permanently; however, if you gain weight, then you have to do more sessions.
You must always discuss the outcomes with your doctor and should not expect dramatic changes as compared to getting lipo. Having at least three sessions will give you satisfactory results. The changes will only occur in the treated area and not the surrounding body parts.
You should expect to see some improvement in the skin tightness as well as the reduced size of the treated area by around 4 centimeters.
It’s always good to get advice from an experienced doctor before choosing any fat reduction procedure. Dr. Riehm guarantees all her clients compassionate care, and satisfactory results.
