Sometimes, no matter what you try, that stubborn body fat around your love handles and abdomen just doesn’t go away. At Grossman Plastic Surgery, we can help. Read on as we explain why you develop additional fat around your waist and why we believe SculpSure may be the best way to remove it.
Key causes of stubborn abdominal fat
Adrenaline, cortisol, and insulin are naturally occurring hormones in your body that can cause belly fat and associated health issues when your lifestyle proves too much for them to cope with.
Your pancreas produces insulin, which helps transport glucose — extracted from the carbohydrates in your food — through your bloodstream to your cells and organs, where its energy is needed to keep your body working as it should. Your body converts any excess glucose, or sugar, into fat stores to be used when needed.
But when you have a carbohydrate-rich diet, there’s more glucose than your body can use, so that storage of fat gets bigger, along with your waistline.
Adrenaline is a stress-response hormone that converts the stored fat into a sudden burst of energy, so you can escape from a stressful situation. Modern life has become increasingly more stressful, but we’re not burning off the energy. As a result, another hormone, cortisol, collects and stores this unused energy as fat — and that fat tends to be stored around your abdomen.
Help eliminating those pockets of fat
Diet and lifestyle changes can go some way in reducing the effects of these hormones, but there may come a point where regardless of what you try, you just can’t shift that remaining fat.
That’s when SculpSure® can help.
SculpSure is laser fat reduction technology that uses energy to target trouble spots and destroy the fat. It works on anyone of any age or skin type. By using a procedure that’s completely customized for you and targeting where you want to lose that fat,
SculpSure gives you the results you’ve been dreaming of.
SculpSure is not for weight loss. It is body contouring for those near their ideal weight who want to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat.
How does SculpSure work?
It’s a clinically tested and FDA-cleared fat treatment that reduces as much as 24% of that stubborn body fat. It works by selectively targeting and destroying fat cells through use of laser light to heat the fat cells until they’re destroyed. Then your body naturally removes them through its lymphatic system.
Unlike suction-based treatment and other invasive procedures, SculpSure doesn’t cause any bruising or damage to the surrounding skin. It’s a comfortable and convenient treatment that really does get the results you’re looking for in a 25-minute session.
With SculpSure, there’s no downtime or recovery needed after a treatment session. You can walk out of our door at Grossman Plastic Surgery and get on with your normal daily life without the need for rest, or anyone even knowing that you’ve had the procedure.
SculpSure gets results in as quickly as six weeks
Losing fat isn’t a quick process, and it takes time for your body to naturally absorb those targeted fat cells. You can expect to see optimal results in 12 weeks, although you will notice a difference much earlier, usually around week six.
If you’re looking for a fast, non-invasive treatment to shed that stubborn flab and belly fat, SculpSure may be what you’ve been looking for.
